This week in Reception we had our very own Royal Ball!

We have been learning all about the theme of Fantasy and Fairy-tales this half-term and we were very excited to receive an invitation from a real Princess to go to a ball! The children really enjoyed dancing to the special ball-themed music and everyone looked fantastic in their smart clothes.

Thank you to everyone involved for making it such an exciting and enjoyable experience!

What a fantastic week we have had in Nursery. Thank you to all those parents who have stayed and joined in with our Nursery Rhyme activities over the week. We hope you had fun and enjoyed seeing your children learning and taking part.

Today there were some fabulous nursery rhyme character costumes.

We hope you all had a great time.  We did.

This week Nursery children are taking part in World Nursery Rhyme Week. Parents have been invited into Nursery to take part in a variety of activities linked to a different Nursery Rhyme each day. The rhymes are Hey Diddle Diddle, Doctor Foster, Baa Baa Black sheep, Two little Dickie Birds and Incy Wincy spider. On Friday we are having a Nursery Rhyme Dress up day.

Keep an eye out for photos from this exciting week.

We are now an ‘Inclusion Quality Mark Centre of Excellence’

The School was recently recognised as an ‘Inclusion Quality Mark Centre of Excellence.’

We are an inclusive and welcoming school – something we are immensely proud of.  Following our model of embedding British Values within our curriculum and school ethos, pupils, staff and parents work hard to ensure that each child is included and that Every Child Matters to us.  Ultimately, Together We’re Better!

Following a rigorous exercise, the School received this recognition and can call ourselves a Centre of Excellence for Inclusion.  Mr Naughton, Mrs Bryant, Mrs Mohammed as well as school governors (Mrs Hahlo and Mr Sherrington) attended an awards ceremony to receive the award on behalf of the School.

As recognised by Mrs Bryant in a special worship, the hard work for the award was ultimately carried out by our learners, parents and staff who create the fantastic environment we have at School.  Smiling faces walking through the doors each morning speak volumes!
