I think I should start this blog with the heading ‘That was the week that was’ because with Ofsted visiting us this week I feel it has all passed by in a bit of a blur. However we have now returned to our normal timetable and we are all looking forward to a relaxing weekend. The inspectors themselves were very perceptive and pleasant and they told me to inform the parents that the report should be published in approximately 3-4 weeks when we will ensure that you are all sent a copy. Unfortunately we cannot share the result with parents before then so please do not ask us how it went because we cannot tell you.
On Monday the photographer will be in school to take individual photographs and he will also take family groups of children who are in school so remind the children to take extra care with their appearance on Monday because they will not have another photograph taken for a whole year. We also recommend that the children wear winter uniform as we feel this looks better in photographs.
Next Friday the ‘Book Fair will be arriving in school and the books will be available to buy the following week. We do hope that as many of you as possible will be able to visit the fair and purchase a book because the more books that are purchased by parents means the more the school can purchase which means that the children have a higher quality reading provision in school. The Book Fair will run from Monday September 30th until Thursday 3rd October from3.15 – 3.45pm each day. We would like some volunteers to help run the Book Fair so if you are able to assist at one of these sessions please give your name to the school office with the day that you are able to help.
I hope you all have a pleasant weekend – I know I certainly will!
