Firstly, thank you for the amazing response to our parental questionnaire with a record number of responses. The result is overwhelmingly positive. However, there were some pertinent comments and suggestions from parents which we will address as far as possible. Some changes will be immediate. An action plan will be devised to improve other areas. For example, some parents requested better communication. Our pupils have also completed their questionnaires and whilst the vast majority are happy and achieving, they too have some good ideas for us to follow up.
I am delighted to let you know that we have been successful in our bid to become an ‘International School’. This award recognises our work across the curriculum and in extra curricular activities to raise our pupils’ awareness and understanding of other cultures and also their roles as global citizens. Having gained the Intermediate Award, we are looking forward to gaining the final, highest award in the not too distant future. Thank you to Mrs Butler and all other staff who were involved.
Mr Pullan has been very busy organising our inaugural ‘ACA’ afternoon. Pupils are signed up to learn something new on Monday 10th February, our alternative curriculum afternoon. We aim to have fun, have an opportunity to show learning skills are transferable and that with the right motivation, we can all achieve.
Our next newsletter will be available before half term on this website under the Parents tab.
Mrs C Kennedy
