Head Teacher Weekly Update

Primary Museum Day 

The Primary History Museum Day event took place on Monday 9th January in the afternoon.  Pupils  shared what they had been learning about houses and homes in history and present day.  The event included modern eco day houses, war shelters to old Round houses.  The students had a stall with models of their houses and dressed up in the attire for the era that the houses represented.  Students were articulate, confident and enthused when discussing the materials used in the building of the houses and the way of life from the period of time that they covered.  Well done to all involved.

Adverse Weather

Just a reminder, that notifications of school closure due to adverse weather conditions will be placed on the website, please check the website for any information.  If there is no notification assume the school is open.

School Closure

Just a reminder to all parents that school will be closed on Wednesday 18th and Thursday 19th January.

Focus Event 10th January

Staff attended an inspiring, thought provoking and motivating session at the NEC this week.  The event had renowned guest speakers such as Sir John Jones. Simon Brooks and Professor Sugatra Mitra.  Sessions looked at Self Organised Learning Environments and visible learning.

Mobile Phones

A gentle reminder that students should not be bringing mobile phones into school and if they do, they will be confiscated until the end of the day.

PE Kit

Please can you ensure that senior students bring in their PE kit on Fridays as on a number of occasions students have forgotten items at home.  In addition please can they bring in warmer items of clothing due to the cold weather at the moment, all PE kit including winter kit must be from the prescribed uniform.
