Bulletin 11th May 2018

Posted 11/5/2018

Bulletin:

I hope you all enjoyed a lovely Bank Holiday weekend, with such glorious weather. Keeping with the weather theme, we have seen our pupils shining in school this week too. There have been great attitudes on display.

We held an intense and thorough two day Interview process this week in school for our new Deputy Head teacher. We were delighted with the quality of the candidates who were invited, and I am delighted to announce that we have successfully identified our preferred candidate, and subject to a few procedural matters being concluded, we will have our new Deputy Head teacher in place ready to start in September 2018.   I will give more details as soon as I am able. I am very confident we have made an excellent appointment that will help us to continue our progress.

The candidates and the panel were all very impressed with the children of our school throughout the process, whether in lessons, in assembly, around school in general. I was very proud to hear this!

Next week our Year 6 children have their National Curriculum tests (KS2). I am very happy with their response to the build-up process, working hard and aiming for their best. The children are ready and have had super attitude these past few weeks!  Good luck! All we can ask is they do their very best. I obviously am very proud of them and Mrs Longfield too!

Meanwhile our Year 2 (KS1) pupils have had a slightly different week, doing some ‘special agent’ investigations and puzzles as part of a gentle preparation for their National Curriculum tests the following week (beginning 21st May). Miss Stafford and Mrs Stones have been so pleased and impressed by the attitudes and enthusiasm of the Year 2 pupils, particularly when collaborating together.

Next week:

  • Year 6 / KS2 National Curriculum tests (Monday to Thursday) - SATS breakfast club available from 8.00am onwards
  • Monday 14th : Kings Church Selby leading our assembly
  • Wednesday 16th: Cultural Diversity day with Yazi
  • Thursday 17th – Year 5 Venus trip to Parliament
  • Friday 18th   – Pluto learning assembly
  • Friday 18th – Royal wedding dress down day – Red White and Blue themed (and Royal wedding themed school meal)

Thanks for your continued interest and support of our school.

Best wishes

Jon Watson

 Headteacher
