Friday updates

Happy Friday all!


We have had a great start back to the summer term!

It promises to be a very busy few weeks as lots is happening and it's quite a short one.


Next week we have our 2nd Governor day. Governors will spend the day in school, looking at phonics and early reading as well as the OFSTED framework. They will also meet with their curriculum teachers to see everything that the teachers have been doing to make sure their curriculum areas are being delivered to the high standards we expect.

For more information on our Governors check out the governor tab on the website.


Miss Berrington's class had a brilliant class assembly this week and showcased their many talents, from singing to dancing, maths and yoyo ing to name but a few - all the children were stars and demonstrated what a great class group they are.


May 6th is photo day for class groups and leavers photos.


Monday May 9th is the start of our year 6 statutory testing week. These were cancelled during covid but we are confident that this cohort of year 6s are going to shine, showcasing all the hard work they have put in during their time at Dovedale.


Jubilee event

On Thursday 26th May we will hold a Jubilee celebration. This will consist of activities in school with a picnic plate snack time and a parade. The school council will give you more details of this shortly. At 3.15 parents will be invited to join in the PTA celebration including stalls and games from 3.15 till 5.00. WE hope this will be a lovely end to the first half term. More details from the PTA to follow.


A reminder that Monday 6th June is our Jubilee day as previously mentioned and school will be closed on this day. WRAP club is open on this day.


As we are getting into the summer months (although it hasn't felt much like it this week) I would like to remind parents to send in sun hats and apply sun cream before school. If children need to bring cream in with them please label it and let the teacher know via dojo. They will need to apply the cream themselves but can be supervised.


A reminder that head bands should be school colours and appropriate size, shoes should look like school shoes and in black and plain, school colour jumpers or cardigans should be worn over school polo shirts as opposed to other sweatshirts.


Thank you to all parents who took the time to complete the parent questionnaire. We shall be reviewing the responses and providing an analysis.


If your child has a medical appointment please supply the office with the text you receive from the practice.


To allow our staff to take a break I have asked them to switch off their dojos over the weekend. Please communicate if necessary over the weekend via the Headteacher@ email.


I hope you all have a lovely Bank holiday weekend.
