Information from Mrs Driver

Dear Parents

I am sure you are all as delighted as we are with the Primary League tables which were published in the Sunday Times last week. The paper shows the top 300 state schools across the whole country. This is out of about 17000 and we have come out at equal 38th! This is an amazing achievement and one of which we are all immensely proud. It is a testament to the hard work put in by everyone. All the children know they are expected to work hard and will gain rewards if they do so. The staff are tireless in their efforts to provide the children with the best possible opportunities and for that I am extremely grateful.

Letters have been sent home about tickets for the Christmas performances and about Christmas lunch, please make sure you have seen these and returned them as soon as possible. It is highly unlikely that we will have any extra tickets for the whole school show and I would ask that tickets for the dress rehearsal are for Grandparents only. It is not intended as an opportunity for you to see the show twice! There are only a few tickets left and these are also limited, we can only get a 150 people in the hall.

Many of you will have read the information on Twitter about the re -launch of our website. We are hoping to have the website up and running in January and you will be able to access lots of information about the school. However, Twitter will continue to be a major part of our communication and it will certainly play an important role if we have any severe weather. If you have not yet signed up to Twitter and would now like to do so, please contact the school office and we will give you the necessary information.

I am delighted to be able to tell you that our Girls’ Football Team played in the County Finals of the ESFA National tournament on Saturday where they were runners up. This is a fantastic achievement and we are all really proud of them.

Yours sincerely

Mary Driver
