Newsletter – 8th February 2018

The end of a busy and productive half term is upon us already. It only seems like yesterday we were coming back from Christmas. Lots achieved so far in 2018 and lots more still to look forward to.

It was great to see so many parents in and around school again this week with open afternoon and lots of people attending our maths workshop on Tuesday with Mr Birkinshaw and Mr Maskell. Some eyes were well and truly opened about how maths has changed from when many of us attended primary school!

Lots of teams in action this week starting with the netballers playing really well in a closely fought 4-3 loss to St Michael’s School on Monday. The girls had plenty of the ball and lots of chances but could quite get the ball in the net often enough to grab the result they deserved.

The boys played two teams over at Hamstel with both A and B running out comfortable winners, 4-0 and 6-0 respectively, in the snowy conditions.

The A team had already played at Bournemouth Park last Friday and came away with a 4-1 win there too.

Another reminder to please sign up to and make your online purchases through their app or website so that our schools receive donations at NO additional cost to yourself. Over 3,300 shops and sites are available including John Lewis, M&S, Ebay, Amazon, Argos and Sainsburys, so whether it’s groceries or getaways, buy it all via this site!

Attendance matters

The number of lates this week was 60 which is terribly disappointing. A number of children are arriving late to school up to 3 or 4 times a week which has a huge impact on their learning. Our overall attendance so far is 96.3%.
