A message from Mr Beynon
The Autumn Term is the longest of the year and is always busy. We have welcomed our youngest pupils into Reception and I am delighted to report that they are settling in beautifully and thriving in the bright and cheerful learning environments that teachers and TAs have worked so hard to set up.
You will be aware that there has been a real focus on reading, writing and maths over recent years and this work is showing dividends. Building on those firm foundations, Heads of School across the Trust have been working to develop a new approach to delivering a truly broad, engaging and relevant curriculum. We have already experienced Ofsted’s new approach looking at that very aspect of how we help our children to learn and prepare them for the rapidly changing world in which we live. All aspects of the curriculum can come under scrutiny, from geography to PE, art to science. This is a welcome change but nonetheless a challenging one as goalposts are once again moved both rapidly and far!
Everyone has worked incredibly hard this term and the run up to Christmas with fayres, nativity plays and carol concerts is both a joy and a lot of hard work. Thank you to everyone for your support with fund-raising events and for coming to see your children perform.
I hope that you all enjoy a healthy, happy and peaceful Christmas and we look forward to welcoming you back to school in 2020.
