A fantastic end to the half term here at Dovedale. It's been a busy week as always and we are all ready for the holidays.

We welcomed in the Heads of our sister Academy schools and the CEO for a teaching and learning review on Wednesday and Thursday. This was a collaborative process to see the developments we have been making at our school and to review classroom teaching. We felt very proud of the positive feedback we received for our 'lovely' school so a big thank you to all the adults in school who showed off how brilliant they are! A huge thank you to the children too-their behaviour was outstanding; they wowed with their singing and signing in assembly and during the pupil interviews they impressed with their positive attitudes and knowledge about all things curriculum. We are very proud of them!

We were also very proud of Sweetpea class who presented their class assembly on Thursday morning. It was a Valentine's treat which bought a tear to several eyes as they sang and signed their class song 'True colours'. They spoke out clearly and confidently and showcased their learning. Super well done and thank you to Miss Bestwick and the team for coordinating them.

A goodbye to Calum in year 5 today as he moves on to his new school, we wish him all the very best for the future!

We are back to school on Monday 25th February. This week brings an assembly from Severn Trent water and anti bullying ambassador training. The MAT drop in session is on February 27th from 2.00. This is for any parent who wishes to talk confidentially about anything not related to school. This could be home behaviour concerns, personal support or just sounding out a problem. Please call the office to make an appointment for this.

We hope you all have a happy and safe holiday and look forward to welcoming you back for the next half term.
