“Believe you can and you’re halfway there”

MacMillan Coffee Morning - Friday 29th September 9.30am - 11.00am

Headteacher's Blog

Please have a look at the pupil pages, especially for Year 6 as half the class are on their residential trip. The other half are spending the afternoons with the Chiltern Rangers and coming across things quite unusual!

I would like to thank a number of the Year 5 children who helped today (1/3/2017) across the school sorting out facilities for their new classroom next year (Year 6). What impressed me most was how they worked as a team. Sorting through old resources and it gave us a great opportunity to discuss some of the equipment we came across, especially the Science resources. Well done and thanks again!!

Look out for staff vacancies which are going to appear on the website in the next few days!!  If nothing is suitable, why not offer to volunteer to work on or even run one of a number of projects that are being initiated in the school!

Take a look under the key information section to see the latest results of the parent survey - AMAZING!!

Some recent comments from visitors to the Academy:

Your school is like a Genie's lamp, not so good from the outside but magical on the inside! - PARENT

 

The school has got a totally different feel to it, much more positive and you can feel it throughout the school. - 6 to 7 Transfer Support

 

The school is moving in the right direction and we can see that the welfare and well-being of the children is being fully supported here. - School Nurse

 

The school is much more approachable than it used to be. - PARENT

 

I'm hearing very positive messages now from  neighbours with children at the school - and good reports of the new Headteacher! - Local resident and ex Headteacher (Different LA)

 

My child is in Year 6, could they go back to year 3 and start again? - PARENT

 

Thank you, you have already implemented so much support for this family - Family Resiliance.

 

I was very impressed with the support already in place and the ideas you have to develop this further to support mental health among pupils.

Your wealth of knowledge, clear understanding of mental health needs and passion will go a long way to supporting the children in your School to learn and grow in a safe environment.

I feel the work you are doing is a great model that could be shared with other school as best practice. - CAHMS

Keep your eyes on the website, you will be able to follow us on twitter soon!!

Garden Project

The garden project is well under way,it would be great if there were any parents who were able to give up a little time to help us with this project.  We have very limited tools to do this, so if you are able to donate any tools, we would really appreciate it!

Fantastic news, our outside classroom has now been installed and we look forward to the warmer weather so we can use the classroom to it's full potential.

FANTASTIC feedback from our January 2016 HMI monitoring visit - I am so proud!

Philosophy for Children

Our pupils have been taking part in P4C lessons for some time now - the video below is a good example of what we are trying to achieve........we want our pupils to think about and question the "norm" - to not simply accept "that is the way it is". We are trying to grow a learning community of deep thinkers, who reflect often and form their own, educated opinions. In the clip below, little Luiz Antonio is doing just this at a very young age, allowed to do so, of course, by his very thoughtful mother
