Loving for Today, Learning for Tomorrow, Forever in Faith

4th March 2022

The end of another week is here. They always say that two heads are better than one, so it is very fortunate that Mr Lock and our new headteacher, Dr Inglis, are both writing the head lines today. Dr Inglis will be starting officially in the Summer term but will be visiting the school regularly over the next few weeks in preparation. Dr Inglis is already feeling very much at home and I am sure you will join me in welcoming him to our school.

We really enjoyed our second Going for Gold together in the hall today. It has become apparent that Mr Lock needs to improve his dance moves (Mrs Beeton was on hand to make a list of useful development points so that Mr Lock can improve this over the weekend). As our value is courage, next week all of the staff are challenged to show great courage and join in with our ‘reach for the stars’ theme which introduce our Stars with the 6Rs. The pupils in Oak class did a great job a choreographing some extraordinary moves for the opening theme “Going for Gold”. It was all great fun and a real celebration to draw the week to a close.

World Book Day was a huge success and the pupils really enjoyed all of their activities and dressing up for this event. Our thanks goes to all of the families for their efforts in providing the costumes and to the staff team, particularly Mrs Howell who organised the day, for making this a memorable event.

Finally, congratulations to Narnia house who were able to come to school in their own choice of clothing today. They were the winning house from Spring 1. It is always wonderful to see how many house cred-its are achieved each week for showing
