Friday 17th March

Good evening,

As I’ve walked around school this week, it has been wonderful seeing all children focused on their targets and applying their excellent learning behaviours. Across school you can definitely see our values through all that we do:

  • Developing trust and independence
  • Hope for our world as a respectful citizen
  • Joyful and memorable experiences
  • Love for all

In our Thursday assembly, our SOUL team led the session based on e-safety. They have developed a new code of conduct for e-safety and shared this with school. This can be seen on the school website and will be talked about in classes. It is really important that we continue to talk about safety online and promote healthy conversations about online content.

Have a lovely weekend everyone. Take care.

Tea party

Little Owls are hosting a tea party for their grandparents and guests on the 22nd March 2023. They have been working hard preparing and baking. They all really looking forward to being hosts for the afternoon.

Kestrel class provision

Mrs Jones has an operation planned for over the Easter holidays. Ms. Reece, who has been working with the older children recently, will be leading learning in Kestrel Class whilst Mrs Jones is off school. Planning, assessment and teaching will be handed over in depth during the week of the 27th March.

Red Nose Day Cardingmill Valley Run

Due to the snow last week, the Red Nose Day Cardingmill Valley run was cancelled. The National Trust have advised us that they are unable to reschedule the run at the moment. We have unfortunately decided to cancel the run and have refunded you via ParentPay. Sorry for any disappointment caused.

Congratulations to the basketball teams on reaching the finals for South Shropshire. Both teams played incredibly well, with one of our teams winning the finals.

Well done to everyone who took part.
