Headteachers Update

We are very keen for children to share the awards or achievements they accomplish out of school with us all each week at the celebration assembly. This week Kazik showed us his amazing art work! Last week Tallulah showed us her tap skills and tap shoes and Lucia showed us her dad’s marathon medal. All of these achievements help inspire us whilst also encouraging children to develop hobbies and passions that they will hopefully pursue for the rest of their lives. It is important that children develop a sense of what makes them happy and feel fulfilled. School life is only part of a child’s life and their extracurricular achievements are just as valid and exciting so please support your child in preparing to share at the Friday’s celebration assembly.

We are so pleased to let you know that the Park persistence absenteeism is now above the national average which is great news! Let’s keep this up!

There is no Trust update as of yet so please bear with us. As soon as I know more I will let you know.

Next Friday, the children can wear their own clothes as it is the last day of the half term. Can children please bring in a small donation which will be passed onto the PTFA. It is also the Parents’ Showcase on Friday; please see the dates section above for timings.

We have a number of out-grown jumpers in the family room, so please see Gemma or Kelly if you need any of them as they are free and going spare.
