Newsletter March 2024

Dear Sheriffhales,

Whisper it, but Spring is tip-toeing around; the children are definitely getting better after a poorly February, the days are a little longer and the sun is thinking about a bit of a shine!

It has been a year since our Ofsted visit and I wanted to share with you a little reflection on the past year. Our beautiful school is thriving – in September ’22 we had 67 children and we now have 82… 97 in September! This year, there were 8 times as many applications for our Reception class as there were for Sep ’22.

Our curriculum is now fully written and transformed, giving every child a rich and engaging school experience. Some of our results in summer 2022 were low, but in summer 2023 were above local and national average. For those children who need a bit extra, we have developed our support to give access to very high quality provision specific to their needs.

We now have 2 parents evenings and 2 open afternoons, plus end of year reports, welcoming our families into school more than ever before. Our fantastic teaching team goes countless extra miles for their classes: our school literally beats with the sound of children learning.

The whole school has been refurbished and each classroom is well-resourced with IT and libraries: reading (and writing) is now hugely popular. We have transformed our Early Years into a vibrant, exciting and outstanding teaching and learning environment: our Acorns sprint into school!

Our PTFA and Governors continue to give magnificent support and your children are our pride and joy: everyone who meets them comments on how lovely they are and how well they represent us. SMALL BUT MIGHTY!

Lots still to come in March, including Reading Week, Science Week and the Easter holidays!
