This week’s Learning Behaviour: ‘I persevere – I keep going, even if it’s difficult’


Dear Parents and Carers,


London Trip


Our Eagles had a fantastic time on their trip to London on Friday! I would like to thank all the members of staff who gave their time to accompany the children – Mrs Matthew, Mrs Trisorio, Mr Dumon, Mrs Fenton, Miss Ashton and Mrs Monk. As always a particular mention must go to Mrs Matthew and Mrs Trisorio for doing such a comprehensive job of organising and running the trip – a huge task!


World Book Day


Thank you for supporting our World Book Day celebrations today. The children looked fantastic dressed up as their favourite book characters and all classes really enjoyed their time with our storyteller, Rogan Mills.


Easter Egg Assembly


A reminder that we will be holding our special Easter Egg Assembly tomorrow (Tuesday 20th March) at 8.45am, when the winning entries from each class will be announced, along with the winners of the parents’ and carers’ entry. This is always a fun assembly and you are all invited to join us on that occasion.


Parents’ and Carers’ Evening (Reception to Year 5)


A final reminder that our Parents’ and Carers’ Evening is taking place tomorrow night (Tuesday 20th March). If you have not yet made an appointment you will receive a phone call from the school office during the day on Tuesday to arrange a time.


Robins’ Class Assembly


Advance notice that our Robins’ class will be leading our assembly on Wednesday, 11th April at 8.45am. Everyone is welcome to attend, especially parents and carers of children in our Robins’ class.


Kingfishers’ Drumming Performance


Our Kingfishers’ class will be presenting a special presentation to parents and carers this Wednesday afternoon (21st March). Come along and see what skills the children have been learning over the past few weeks. The presentation will begin at 2.00pm.

We will be holding our Easter Service this Thursday, 22nd March. A number of children from our Hawks’ class will be taking part. Everyone is welcome to attend this special service which starts at 8.45am.




School will be closing at 2.00pm this Friday, 23rd March, as it is the last day of term.

We re-open on Monday 9th April at 8.35am. Have a lovely holiday!






End of Term Reports


Your child will be bringing home their end of term report this Thursday, 22nd March. This short report is designed to give parents and carers information about their child’s effort and attainment, as well as information about how regularly they are reading at home and completing their homework. There is also a short general comment about how they are doing in school. I hope you find it useful.


You’ve Been Spotted!


Well done to the following children who have been spotted displaying one of our Christian Bible Values:


Aysha Laher (Doves) - Courage Aafiya Sayed (Owls) - Friendship

English Conversation Classes


A reminder that these are happening every Tuesday, 1.30 – 2.30pm, in the room at the back of the hall. Feel free to pop in for a chat!




Each week I let parents know the attendance of each class in school, as well as the overall school attendance figure. High levels of attendance are vital for your child to make the progress they are capable of. Our aim this year is to exceed 96%.


Last week’s attendance was as follows:


Robins Blue






Overall attendance for the week: 96.2%

Robins Green












Overall attendance for the year to date: 95.2%













(Target for year = 96%)
