Head's Newsletter

Dear Pupils, Parent, Staff, and Governors,

We had another sport-filled week with our Year 5 and Year 6 girls reaching the semi-finals, showing great determination and sportsmanship in a nail-biting 1-0 defeat. They should be very proud of their efforts and were indeed a sterling example of fair play and team collaboration. Our sporting endeavours are also continuing next week with Swimming Gala trials and we are sure that all those pupils in Years 4, 5 and 6 will try their very best.

The importance of outdoor learning and our enriched curriculum was also celebrated this week with Blue 3’s visit to Forest Schools in Paddington Recreation Ground, Y6’s trip to the Royal Albert Hall and Reception’s trip to the London Transport Museum. The children returned to school refreshed and engaged, ready to write about or speak about their learning experiences. These enriching opportunities are continuing next week not only with our focus on E-Safety and corresponding workshops for our pupils on Tuesday 12th February but also in Y5’s Tudor Tower of London workshop on Monday 11th February.

Nursery and Reception will be holding Maths Workshops for Parents on Wednesday 13th February and Thursday the 14th of February, respectively, from 9:00. These are perfect opportunities for parents to glean ideas, tips or strategies that they can share with their children to support them in their learning journey.

With the half-term holiday fast approaching, please set aside some time to think about your contribution to the school auction, the school’s most significant fund-raising event. Whether you donate an item or are able to give some time to help in the preparations, all offers are warmly welcomed. Donations can be made on the auction site. If you have any questions please email the auction team.

Jarvis is going home with Dawud today who demonstrates wonderful generosity of spirit to his peers and is always caring, kind and considerate to everyone in school.

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

Mrs K Husain
Head teacher
