A message from Mr Beynon

We were pleased to see parents at our KS2 remembrance display preparation in Church and for the support you gave our Children in Need activities which raised over £180. Thank you for your generosity. The first disco in many years was a success and the children really enjoyed the event. We are grateful for the support that POMs provides to the school. We have a number of events coming up to which you are invited to contribute. On Wednesday 27 November in the afternoon we have Christmas Decoration making to which you are invited to come into school and work with your children. On Monday 2 December at 2.15 in the Church is the KS2 Carol Service and on Wednesday and Thursday 11 and 12 December at 9.30am in the Church we are holding our EY and KS1 Nativity Play. We would ask that parents with toddlers who wish to attend come to the Thursday performance. Our Christmas Fair will be on Friday 13 December at 3pm when some of the decorations made by pupils and families will be on sale as well as other items. There will also be gifts from Father Christmas who is joining us that afternoon. The complete results of the Parent Survey are to be found elsewhere in the newsletter. Generally, the results were better than last year except for one or two areas. Of particular concern was the response that only 72% of parents who replied said that children are well behaved at the school. This contrasts with the views of many external visitors who have been in the school recently. These visitors report that the school is calm, that there are rarely children out of class and most children are concentrating on their learning. Also, the number of exclusions has reduced dramatically despite us having higher expectations. This survey response is lower than last year when behaviour was clearly more of an issue. My assumption is that these views are likely to reflect the behaviour seen particularly at the start and end of the school day - a time when we share responsibility for behaviour with you as parents and carers. We will continue to monitor this situation and ask your views again in the near future. We would also ask that parents and carers model expected behaviour by not using offensive language or their mobile phones while on the school premises.Categories: 1 CategorySchool News

We have had a busy and exciting half term. It was wonderful to see so many parents at our Harvest Festival Service in Church and then attend our Art Exhibition in school. We have received lots of positive comments about the art work from various visitors and members of the Redstart Trust and we plan to have more exhibitions of children’s work later in the year. We look forward to you arranging to meet with your child’s class teacher after half term (first week back) when we can update you on the start your child has made to the school year and share their targets for improvement. Your help in hearing you children read as much as you can and enabling them to log onto TT Rock Stars is also appreciated. I am delighted that the reformed POMs (Parents of Minerva) are planning the next events after the success of the summer fair. The next one is the Discos on Friday 8 November after school. The POMs have also been successful is helping the school receive a grant for some after school activities on a Tuesday and also a holiday club over half-term. There will be a number of events next term to which you are invited. There will be the Remembrance Display making in the Church by key stage 2 children (Friday 8 November); Christmas Decoration making event on Wednesday 27 November (all classes) and the Christmas Production by Reception and KS1 (Wednesday 11 and Thursday 12 December). We will also support Children in Need again this year with a fund raising event on Friday 15 November. We are still awaiting the final plans for our building project to expand the Nursery. I will keep you informed and will have a session when you can look at the plans and see the arrangements we will make for keeping the site and children safe during the building work.Categories: 1 CategorySchool News
