School target for first week back is; Remember – no rough games
Please take time to talk about our school values for the first week back with your child;
We encourage excellence in both teaching and learning.
Friday 18th November is Children in Need day. We always do something in school to support this charity as we believe it is a worthwhile cause. This year we are having a spotty theme, and invite all children to come to school dressed in something spotty (or with a spotty face!) in return for a £1 donation. We will also be covering a large Pudsey Bear in coins so please donate any loose change, and we will have a bun sale – donations of buns would be most welcome! Children will be given a bun at morning break and any remaining buns will be sold after school.
We have changed the title of our parent consultations this year. This is because we wanted to have a more clearly defined focus upon the learning and progress that your child is making. We have therefore called these ‘Learning Review Meetings’. Ten minute appointments can be made with class teachers through our online booking system. The discussion will be structured around the progress that your child has made since the summer term, and is an opportunity to discuss how well they have settled into their learning this year, as well as identifying the successes and challenges they are having in their learning. We will once again make progress information available to you for this meeting. Pupil work will be available to view and discuss during our ‘Open Classrooms’ sessions as usual. In the Spring term our Learning Reviews will take place on Wednesday 15th March, and KS2 pupils will be invited to participate in these discussions.
Please find attached a guide to our assessment. We have written this to help all parents understand the assessment processes that happen in school. We hope that it is helpful, but if you have any questions please raise these with your child’s teacher.
