Head's Newsletter

Dear Pupils, Parents, Staff, and Governors,

During our Geography Week, kindly organised by Mrs Robinson, our KS1 and KS2 pupils have enjoyed learning orienteering skills in Hampstead Heath Adventure playground. This enriching learning experience has not only helped them in their Geography skills but they have also been given wonderful opportunities to reflect and demonstrate cross-curricular links in their writing and drawing, inspired by these activities.

This week, we were also fortunate enough to receive a visit from the NSPCC and their mascot, “Buddy”. This worthy organisation carried out a series of workshops and assemblies for the whole school delivering their “Speak out. Stay safe” programme. Nursery, Reception as well as KS1 and KS2 benefited from work around kindness, inclusion and tolerance. The children found these workshops very valuable and we, as a school, are very happy to support the NSPCC in their ambition to help every child in the UK and Channel Islands stay safe.

Preparations for the summer fair are well on the way. If you can help in any way, please contact the summer fair team led by Mrs Koczan-Santiago. Next week, on 28th June, children are invited to wear their own clothes and bring in a jar filled with small toys, games, stationery items or hair accessories (no sweets) and a pound towards the summer fair. All pounds will go towards buying prizes for games at the summer fair. On 5th July, children can again wear their own clothes and this time bring in a homemade cake for the summer fair.

This week, Jarvis will be going home with Muna and Adnan who are always kind and thoughtful towards all of their classmates and all of their teachers. They are wonderful role models inside and outside school, always living out our Mission Statement and being worthy St. Joseph’s ambassadors when on trips or excursions. I am sure that they will continue to flourish and that Jarvis will be very well looked after this weekend.

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

Dr Ninette Fernandes-Viana
Acting Headteacher
