I hope everyone had a great break from school at half term! The children are all settled back in their classes and are working hard. The next few months are critical as the children move towards their end of year assessments and we need your help to make sure they reach their maximum potential in terms of learning. Please support us by ensuring your child is at school on time every day and is equipped with everything required for the day. Reading at home and all elements of homework make an enormous difference to the progress your child can make in learning. We have had some fantastic examples of progress already this term and the positive behaviours for learning displayed by the vast majority of our children is so important to their success.
We try to recognise the efforts of all our children and “Star of the Week”, “Pupil of the Month”, Mathletic certificates, “Mathlete of the Month” are a few of the rewards we recognise at whole school level. I know teams and class teachers throughout our school also have their own rewards and incentives, which are designed to help motivate the children. If you have any other suggestions of ways in which we can promote attendance, punctuality and achievement in learning, please let us know. We are always on the lookout for new ideas!
