A message from the Head of School…

Can you believe we have finally reached the summer holidays for a well-deserved rest and a chance to spend time with our families and loved ones. Firstly we would like to say thank you to all the parents and carers for their ongoing support during this incredibly strange and difficult time. The staff have enjoyed their weekly phone calls and online platform engagement. It has really made us think about how we move forward with our teaching.

The staff really appreciated the positive comments made on Mumbler, which can be seen on our school website.

We would also like to say a massive thank you to all the children. Even though times have changed to a new normal, the children have continued to remain positive, display self-belief, trust and kindness throughout.

We look forward to welcoming all of our children back in September. We have plans in place to ensure children’s wellbeing is at the heart of our teaching. As always we will continue to support our families.

We hope you all have a lovely summer.

DoodleMaths Summer Challenge

The Challenge is designed to prepare children for their return to school by inspiring them to continue their learning and, most importantly, to have fun. This makes taking part a fantastic way to keep children engaged and educated throughout the summer!

DoodleMaths revises tricky topics and gradually introduces new areas, so children who take part in the Challenge can catch-up and build their confidence in maths.
