Head's Newletter

Dear Pupils, Parent, Staff, and Governors,

Welcome back to the Summer Term. I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Mr Bowles who has now been appointed Acting Deputy Head and I am certain that you will support him in this endeavour. I also hope that you have taken the time to read the Ofsted Report which has highlighted the many strengths in our school such as our broad and balanced curriculum, our caring and supportive ethos, pupils’ engagement in lessons and the high expectations shared by the whole staff for all our pupils. Many thanks to you all for your support and a special thank you to Mrs Husain for her invaluable expertise on the day.

This week the children have not only been enjoying trips to the National Gallery but have also participated in Science Workshops and shared in the chick excitement in Nursery. Many congratulations also to Adam on the arrival of his baby brother Merlin who was born last week. We wish Adam’s family health, happiness and sleep during this busy but wonderful time.

This week the children have been enjoying the long awaited arrival of the chicks and also the sunshine: please remember to pack water bottles and school hats (named). School hats can be purchased from ACE Clothing. Please note that all trainers should be black or white and school shoes should be black. Children are unable to wear open-toed sandals in the summer. Girls should now be wearing summer dresses and all cardigans, sweatshirts and jumpers need to be named. Thank you for your cooperation.

At the start of this new term, please ensure that all contact details are up to date in the office. If you have moved house or changed your phone number, please inform the office. Also, please note that we need 2 contact numbers for each child.

Our 4 Tennis athletes from Year 4 also demonstrated excellent sportsmanship and team skills this week in the Paddington Recreation Ground Tennis Competition, narrowly beaten by St. Mary of the Angels to come second in their heat.

We would also like to extend our heartfelt sympathies to Mrs Matarazzo whose father sadly passed away on Easter Saturday. We know that you will keep her and her family in your prayers.

Jarvis is going home with Emilio today because his teachers have all been impressed with his commendable attitude to school and his learning. Emilio sets a fantastic example to his peers with his perseverance, hard work and kind nature and I know he and Natalia will look after Jarvis very well over the weekend.

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

Dr Ninette Fernandes-Viana
Acting Headteacher
