It has been a busy term and the children are looking forward to sharing their reports and also a much needed winter holiday break. A reminder that this coming Monday is a pupil free day as staff undertake professional development in preparation for the coming two terms.
This week we welcome Rosie McKee to our staff. Rosie comes to us with a wealth of experience and has more recently worked with UniSA and MOD, Rosie joins our admin and learning support team so please make her feel welcome. Rosie will be in Claire's classroom most mornings.
Next week we will also have Sue return to school after extended leave, we look forward to welcoming her back for the last week of term. We would also like to thank Tom our prre-service teacher who has been in Claire's class for a large portion of the term. Tom has brought much energy and enthusiasm to the school and we wish him continued success as he commences his teaching career. This week I have also had the privilege of receiving the results from the Wellbeing Engagement Collection survey for year 4-7 students. Importantly there are improvements across all domains this year and we will look at these as part of staff professional development on Monday to continue to deliver responsive social and emotional learning that enhances wellbeing.
Consultation Committee update:
It was fantastic to see that 39 parents attended the community forum giving a broad range of responses. This week the subcommittee met to collate responses from the evening and synthesise the parent input into ‘themes’ for the upper years, middle years and early years along with core principles that are valued across all cohorts of students. Next Monday the subcomittee will meet again to review the initial BRPS Implementation Plan 2015/2016 approved by the DfE in 2016 to inform the current review and gain an understanding of the teacher/staff input and feedback. Communication to parents will be sent to the community by end of term, providing both the parent and staff input into this process. We look forward to sharing this information with you.
Have a wonderful weekend with your families. Kind Regards Sybila.
