Newsletter 12th May 2023

Dear Parents and Carers,

I have had the pleasure of spending more time in classes this week and looking at children’s books. Their progress is documented through photos, work, pictures and quotes from the children. Remember that you can see examples of the things we do on the school Facebook page and the Newsfeed on the Reach More Parents App. They really do have such wonderful experiences and every day they make memories to last forever.

Miss Balachandre

It was lovely to welcome Miss Balachandre back from her maternity leave this week. She is returning three days a week as part of the Senior Leadership team.

Annual Parent Survey

Please can all parents and carers complete the parent/carer survey on the Reach More Parents App. Thank you if you have already completed it. The deadline is Friday 26th May.

Important Reminder about Punctuality

The classroom doors open at 08:40am and registration is at 08:50am. Lessons start immediately after registration. If your child is not here before 08:50am they will be missing vital learning activities. We ask that if you are arriving late, you come to the office and sign your child in. We require you to state a reason for being late to school.

Partnership News

The staff from both schools are working really well together. We are streamlining some of our systems and processes so there is more consistency between the two schools. This will really help with transition from Year 2 to Year 3. We are currently planning the transition days for our Year 2 children to visit GWJS.

Well done to the Year 6 children from GWJS for completing their SATS this week.

The Year 2 children at Mousehold are working hard on their SATS, over a period of a few weeks. Well done to all involved. We have a lot to be very proud of.
