Head's Newsletter

As we come to half term and the half way point of the year, it is an ideal time for reflection. The first half of this year has been very busy and full and during the course of this week I have had the chance to meet with all of the teachers to discuss the progress that the children have made so far. I have to say that I am so proud of all of the children who are all working so hard and are all making such fabulous progress. The year 5 assembly on Thursday was a good example of the children being engaged, enthused and creative learners. They did a marvellous job of combining E safety with the Tudors – a rare feat!

It has, of course, been E safety week in school and years 1-6 all had workshops with our E safety consultant friend, Belinda. Belinda was very impressed with the knowledge that the children showed and how sensible they are. As I am sure you know, it is really important to talk to your children about what they are doing on line, who they are talking to and how much screen time they have.

Jarvis is going home with Maisie today who is very gentle, kind and caring and I know she will look after Jarvis very well over half term.

Congratulations to Coach Grant and his Fiancée Jane who are getting married on Wednesday. We wish them all the best.

I hope that you all have a very restful and peaceful half term and I look forward to welcoming you back to school on Monday 25th February.

May God bless you and keep you and your family safe.

Mrs K Husain
Head teacher
