Welcome to the Week 6 school newsletter. Many fabulous events have happened throughout the last 3 weeks. Huge congratulations for this year’s Book Week Parade. What an outstanding event highlighting fun and creativity. It was special seeing so many people dress up in their costumes including staff. For those students who didn't dress up I still want to thank you for taking part in the day. It was a wonderful day which was very well planned and promoted.
Recent toilet upgrades have begun in all toilet blocks. This work will take time. Contractors will close down one toilet block at a time and complete the work before moving on to the next block. Students will be given alternative toilets to use during this time. The painting has been finalised on the triple portable and looks fantastic. Work has commenced on the wellbeing space and will be concluded by the end of the term.
The asphalt Covered Outdoor Learning Area (COLA) has been approved at the first level which covers the engineering design of the structure. The second stage will be to go to tender and identify the total cost of the structure. Governing Council will make the final decision if we move ahead with the installation. I will keep you posted and inform the community once the final decision has been made.
Congratulations to our Year 1 students who have recently worked through The Year 1 Phonics Screening Test. The test confirms whether individual children have learnt phonic decoding to an appropriate standard. The test also identifies children who need extra support in developing their reading skills. We look forward to the results and implementing new initiatives for our students.
A reminder that the school will be closed for a pupil free day on the 5th September and a school closure on the 6th September.
