Newsletter - January 2018

A warm welcome back to the spring term (if we can call it that, with the frosty weather!). I hope you were all able to spend quality time with families over the holiday period.

As always, the term has started with a bang, with a history workshop, and visit to the Town Hall. It has been wonderful to see so many children coming into school with some amazing holiday projects also. Well done everyone!

As a school we pride ourselves on having fantastic relationships with the vast majority of parents. Sometimes, however, that communication system may break down for a variety of reasons.

Can I draw your attention to our Social Media Policy, which is on our website. If as a parent, you are unhappy about a situation which has occurred in school, first and foremost, I would ask that you begin by talking to us. Often it may be that we are not aware of a situation which is personal to you and your child/ren and as a result, cannot help. There are plenty of adults for you to speak to within school.

The school also has a clear Complaints Policy (again on the website) if you are ultimately still not happy. As a school, we will not tolerate defamatory comments posted on social media, when we have not been given the opportunity to discuss with you, as the Social Media Policy makes clear. Many thanks for your support with this matter.

The Stick Man

On Wednesday 10th January, Reception visited the Town Hall, Birmingham to watch a performance of Julia Donaldson’s story The Stick Man. The children thoroughly enjoyed the performance and were very lucky to have a meet and greet with the performers on the stage after the show!

Hobgoblin Theatre

On Thursday 11th January, the Hobgoblin Theatre Company visited school and provided us with a fabulous performance exploring The History of Britain. This live show was a lot of fun and transported us from the Stone Age right the way up to the Scottish Independence Referendum. We certainly love History and learning about the past.
