Weekly Update Friday 14th July

We have one week to go until the end of our school year. This week we had a lovely Open Afternoon for all our children, where their Records of Achievement were given out. We have had some lovely comments from parents and children about their learning this year and they have been fantastic learners.


For our Year 2 children, this time is very special, exciting and worrying all at the same time. We can see how excited they are, and they are like bottles of pop in school. They cannot wait to share their leaver's performance with their parents and carers next Wednesday afternoon, then come back for their Leavers' Disco in the evening.


Year 1 have made the most amazing display of their Lighthouse home learning. If you haven't seen them yet, please come in and have a look!


We have all been invited to look around the new fire station in Bishops Waltham, where our fantastic art work is hanging up. Year R went this week and had a good look around-they loved the gym and the locker room, but said the best bit was using the hose to put the fire out!


This week we invited an adviser from Hampshire to look at safeguarding in our school, and our procedures for keeping children safe. He talked to staff and children and was really pleased that our safeguarding culture was so strong. Staff are vigilant and children know who to talk to and feel safe in school. As always we are always open to suggestions on how we can be better, and there were some good tips for us to action.


We are recruiting for new governors in the new year. There are a few slots to fill, including parent positions. If you know of anyone not connected to the school, or are a parent at our school and would like to join, please look out for our advert in September.


We hope everybody has a restful weekend.


Best Wishes
