We spend a lot of time preparing children for the transition – either on to a new year group and class or a new school in the case of year 6. This experience of change is really important and helping our children to become resilient and understand that change is necessary is similarly important. The long […]

So far it has been a ridiculously busy week. After a holiday of resting and recharging I have spent most of the week trying to get back up to speed. It is interesting to reflect on how much is expected of educational professionals in an ‘average’ day – comparing this week with my previous week of […]

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 […]

It is due at any time, but we are more than ready and looking forward to demonstrating how we have addressed the concerns raised by OFSTED last year.

The picture shows some of our fabulous year 6 children independently raising money for charity by selling cupcakes – they were delicious! The weather is absolutely gorgeous, unless you are working or in a school… My favourite room this week is the ICT suite – the luxury of air conditioning… Still – I shouldn’t complain […]

Its hard to know what picture to use today – so much has been going on this week (I eventually chose a picture of our really helpful playtime buddies, who planned and organised playtime games with the children who will be joining us in September): Year 5 and 6, as part of our transition arrangements to […]

Run the World   For the third year in a row, the whole school had the opportunity to take part in Run the World. This year it was bigger than ever, with nearly 7,000 children taking part. Unfortunately, just like last year, the Heavens opened up and many of the children got wet. However, this […]
