Friday update

Happy Friday and Happy St George's day.


I hope you are all well and safe and have been able to enjoy the sunshine a bit.


We have had a good week back here at school with a start on our full curriculum. As a school we have devised our new curriculum using the national curriculum guidelines to support our children's progression through the learning modules from EYFS to year 6. This is a curriculum we have devised as a school and have worked over the past year to monitor and adapt with a view to full implementation in the autumn term once we have a good run of the full term (all fingers crossed). We are very excited that our new curriculum is designed to give our children the best academic, social and moral education that they can throughout their time with us.

Examples of our curriculum design will be updated under the key information tab shortly.


Next Wednesday it is whole class photos. Please remember to send your child in their uniforms and not their PE kits if this is usually their PE day.


I have received several holiday requests this week where families feel they need time away after a difficult year or holidays or events  have been rescheduled. I can only authorise holidays within the usual exceptional circumstances guidelines. I realise this is difficult for some people to understand or accept, however many people are in the same situation and if it is a holiday I can't authorise it during term time.


We wish you all a lovely weekend.
