Always Learning and Achieving Together

Week beginning 27th March

There are lots of things going on in the school over this week and towards the end of term.

Charity Support

We had an amazing response last week to our two charity events.

I lost count of how many children I saw wearing odd socks in support of World Down's Syndrome Day on Tuesday 21st March. This event was not a fundraiser but was used as an opportunity to recognise the uniqueness of Down’s Syndrome. If you would like to find out more about this please follow the link to the Down's Syndrome Association website.

Friday the 24th March was however a sight for sore eyes with almost all children supporting

Red Nose Day 2017 in red clothing. We are still counting the £1 donations made by staff and children. An update on our total will go in the next newsletter.


Parent / Pupil / Teacher Meetings

Parents are reminded that these meetings will be held this week on Tuesday and Thursday. Appointment booking forms are outside our classes, so please sign up for an appointment if you have not already done so. that is convenient for you. The United Nations Classroom will be open for tea, coffee and biscuits and tablets will be available to contribute to this term’s parent survey. We will also carry a stock of paper surveys for you to either take away or complete and return to school at a later date.

I appreciate that completing these surveys can be time consuming. Your feedback is however important to us as it allows us to know how we are doing and helps s to know what we can improve.

Our on-line survey can be accessed on the following link: Term 4 Parent Survey

Copies of our paper survey can be downloaded from the Letters section of this website.

End of Term 4

Parents are reminded that:

  • We will be holding an Easter celebration next Thursday morning. This will be supported by Jonathan Brain from Ladyfield Church
  • The Term 4 Awards Ceremony will be held next Thursday at 2:30pm. All parents are welcome to attend this.
  • There will be no school next Friday for all children in the mainstream as teaches will be attending a writing moderation day with staff from other schools in Chippenham. School will however be open for all children in Brazil and Peru classes.


Assemblies this term

Assemblies this term look at the theme of Choices. Over the last few weeks I have been exploring the choices we have in our lives and in particular the choices we make in the way we treat others.

This week we have looked at how we see people who are different to us. To illustrate this I started last week by looking at life and achievements of Stephen Hawking. This week I will look at how we treat those who are different to us.
