Dear Parents/Carers,

We have had a busy start to term! I was proud to be able to show the inspectors around the school, yesterday. They met and talked to many children and saw the wonderful work they do in their books. The outcome will not be published for about three weeks, but we will share it with you, as soon as we can. Thank you to all parents who filled in the parent survey, we do appreciate your honesty, encouragement and support.

The attached newsletter is full of things that have happened at school this week – including the results of the juniors’ own general election vote.

Sports Star Visit

We’re very excited to be welcoming GB Table Tennis Player Darius Knight to the school on Monday, 19th June. Darius Knight is a professional Table Tennis star, role model and a Sky Living for Sport mentor. He plays for England on the ITTF World Pro Tour circuit and during his career, he has played in the French, Spanish, Belgian and German leagues and has just signed a new contract to play in Sweden.

Darius will be leading a sponsored fitness circuit with all pupils, and will follow-up with a talk and question and answer session. The aim of the event is to inspire the pupils to take up sport generally, but just as importantly to encourage them to discover and then pursue their passion in life.

Your child has been given a sponsorship form or you can also sponsor your child by following this link. As the sponsorship form and online sponsorship page explain, the majority of the money raised will be used to buy sports equipment for the school, while some will be used to support GB athletes (including Paralympic athletes).

Please ensure that sponsorship forms and moneys are returned to the school office on or before Monday, 26 June at the latest.

Please make sure that your child/children come to school on Monday 19th wearing sporty clothes!

Year 5 Meet the Parents – for parents of children in Year 4 – change of date

The Y5 Meet the Parents will now be on 5th July at 3.45 p.m.

Best wishes,

Tabitha White
