After a half term spent enjoying the sunshine, its been back to work this week. As always, it was lovely to catch up with the children and hear their stories and adventures from half term. There is also the promise of spring in the air which always raises the spirits. The picture shows some hands […]

“No act of kindness, however small, is ever wasted”, a moral from Aesop which still has resonance. The story of the lion and the mouse is illustrative of something which at times seems out of kilter with the modern thrust of much of our culture. Yet at school, in general, the children are incredibly kind. Sometimes […]

Pupil voice is really important. Most school leaders will say this, but one aspect that Patcham Junior School has always been very strong on is ensuring that the pupils are at the center of decision making in the school.

Dare I say it… no snow yet! The annual scattering of the white stuff is greeted with screams of delight by most of the children in the country, but presents a huge dilemma to headteachers… Lets hope for a continued mild winter. This week I have been busy working on the School Self Evaluation summary. […]

Happy New Year. I was fascinated by this news report today: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-30745018 The response from OFSTED that ‘not enough is being done to ensure reliability of judgements’ is a scandal – especially when the judgements made have such serious implications for staff, schools and communities. The blog that elicited this response is also fascinating – the […]

Its been a typical penultimate week before the Christmas holidays – trees, Christmas carols, red noses, coughs and colds and the feeling that the holidays will never arrive. It is ironic that we are so busy after such a long term – in my opinion a simple change that would improve academic outcomes would be […]
