2023 has started well across school with the children demonstrating their constant enthusiasm for learning. Year 1 have Hi-Impact in today delivering some exciting Science as they learn about plants through dissection, Year 5 enjoyed a very informative visit to a mosque in Birkenhead last week as they learn about other world religions and our Year 2 children have also been busy practising their weaving skills.
National test data
We are delighted to be able to share the school’s data from the most recent national tests. The success of our children underlines the hard work of all stakeholders across our school community. To view our results and see the comparison with national data please click this link.
Well done to the Year 6 children who represented our school at the Dodgeball competition last Wednesday afternoon. They performed brilliantly, winning four out of their five games.
Our Sports-hall Athletics team also represented our school wonderfully, finishing fourth in our heat. Whilst they miss out on qualification it was a pleasure to see such effort and teamwork on display from all of our athletes. Well done to all involved and a reminder that the clubs and activities page on the website is a great place to see what is on offer across school, which can be found here.
As part of our School Council action plans, a number of our team met with Mr Le Feuvre and Mr Neal to complete an environmental audit covering a host of key areas around school. The children found that energy consumption, food waste and increasing biodiversity are all areas they would like to improve this year. With this in mind, each class has appointed two Eco-Monitors to help us be more energy efficient in our classrooms and there will be a Poster Competition that all children can enter. The information below has been written by the School Council:
School Council are inviting KS1 and KS2 children to enter a competition. Design a poster to remind people to turn off all unused electronics in school e.g. lights and interactive board. This will save energy and help reduce global warming. The people who win the poster competition will each receive a £5 book voucher.
We would just ask children to clearly write their name and year group on the back of any poster they create before handing it in to their class teacher, thank you.
There has been an overwhelmingly positive response to the school questionnaire and we thank you for taking the time to complete it. We continue to value any feedback as it helps us inform our school improvement. We will keep the questionnaire open should anyone who is yet to complete it wish to do so. Please use this link for the Parental Questionnaire 2022.
Whilst we are still reviewing the feedback we are pleased to share a couple of updates.
You raised the role of Year 6 children across the school post-Covid and we are pleased to share that the Active Play Leaders have been trained up and are now supporting lunch time activities across the school. We have also implemented a significant number of before and after school clubs which have been very well attended, with several more to take place throughout the school year. The link in the sports update section of the newsletter details the current offer.
The Bishops’ Visit to the Link Café
Bishop Mark commented on what a blessing the Link was and all three bishops thoroughly enjoyed their visit, commenting on what a wonderful experience it was. The school children also had a great time and even managed to sell one of the Bishops a cake! Thank you to everyone who made it such a typically lovely Link.
Thank you for your continued support,
Neil Le Feuvre
