Bulletin – 6th July, Term 3 week 11

Posted 6/7/2018

With World Cup fever and beautiful sunshine there is certainly a really strong summer feel to life in school. It’s hard for me to comprehend just how fast this term has passed and that we are already into July, facing only two more school weeks before the summer break.

Staffing update:

I informed you last week Miss Stafford will be leaving Carlton in Snaith CPS at the end of this term.  I am delighted to say we have had a large and strong field of applicants for the role and I will be interviewing and appointing next week. I will of course keep you posted.

Mrs Hissett has begun her maternity leave this week, in preparation for her new arrival. On behalf of the whole team I would like to wish her all the best for the next few weeks (and beyond) we will keep you updated when we have the exciting news!

Carlton Fete:

It was great to hear from the children what a great event last weekend’s Carlton fete was. I’ve seen photos and have had feedback that Lexie L (Y6) did a super job as fete queen. Congratulations to Elisabeth N for her cake baking skills. More info to follow in our final celebration newsletter at the end of term.


Highlights include:

·         In school rehearsals have been well underway for the Y5 and Y6 summer show

·         Year 6 pupils enjoyed 2 days’ transition at the Snaith school – next week those moving to Holy Family will have their transition day.

Next week:

·         Monday : Pluto (reception) class trip

·         Wednesday and Thursday – school performance – Wednesday 2pm and 5pm, Thursday 5.30pm

·         Move up morning 1 - Friday am in school

·         Collaboration Corner official opening – Friday pm – in school event

·         Summer Fayre – Sunday 15th from 12.00pm-3.00pm


·         We welcomed the Magical maths company into assembly this week. We are offering children the option to sign up for this club (N.B, this club has a cost) for the next school year.

·         Please note (other than Doncaster Rovers on Tuesdays) there are no more school clubs this term.

I’m looking forward to a successful week next week (and hopefully a successful weekend for a certain football team too!).


Kind regards

Jon Watson

Bulletin – 29th June 2018, Term 3 week 10

Posted 29/6/2018

Welcome to another of our weekly bulletin newsletters. What a glorious week we have had - I can’t believe last year sports day was cancelled on more than one occasion for rain, then this year was a totally different picture.

Firstly I wanted to say how pleased I was to hear all about Sports day. I was terribly disappointed (and a little grumpy) about missing the event this year. Unfortunately I had an important conference I needed to attend, as I was sharing the work we have done as a school with colleagues from North Yorkshire and further afield, under the ‘Achievement Unlocked’ project. However, I am really pleased that sports day was such a good afternoon. A huge thank you to everyone who attended and supported Sports day this week. A big thank you to Mrs Longfield and the whole staff team for their efforts in ensuring the event was so successful. Well done to all of the children for their sporting efforts and attitudes. More to follow in our next Celebration newsletter.

We held another super learning assembly this week. I was so impressed by Jupiter class (Mr Brook’s fabulous Year 3 and 4 pupils), who shared their knowledge and enthusiasm for the Romans with the whole school and family members. They shared their historical knowledge and Design and Technology skills, and so much more in their informative and enjoyable assembly. Well done Jupiter class team! Thank you to all of the family members who were able to attend this lovely event – the feedback was super!

Elsewhere in school, on Wednesday Venus class had a brilliant stay and read session this week in the community hub with some of the older members of our community. What a brilliant atmosphere! Mercury class are in full flow with regards to their rehearsals for the end of year production. Mrs Smith and I, along with lots of the staff team also really enjoyed meeting the parents of our new September intake of Reception children this week. The children have begun their visits to school and we are excited to be having them join us permanently soon!

Bulletin – Term 3 Week 10

Posted 22/6/2018

Hello and welcome to our weekly bulletin.

I write this week’s edition from the Educational Festival, at Wellington college. This is a rich opportunity to hear the latest key information from national figures in the education sector.  

Earlier in the week I was delighted to announce that Dr Helen Snowden will continue as our chair of     governors moving forward. This is great news for our school! Helen approaches the role with a strong moral compass, energy, passion and with huge commitment to our school. I am grateful for her            continued support and challenge. 

In school, the highlight of my week once involved Venus class when they continued their Archie project work, holding afternoon tea for older community members on Wednesday afternoon. What a wonderful event that was “better than Betty’s”. I was incredibly proud of the year 5 team (pupils and staff) - well done all! 

Next week I will be communicating more to you about our recent Ofsted and sharing outcomes. 

Please do return our academic resilience survey. We are grateful for your feedback. 

We look forward to sports day next week and Tuesday weather pending. 

Have a good weekend

Thanks for your interest and continued support.

Kind Regards 

Jon Watson 

Head teacher
