We are pleased to confirm the finalised arrangements for transition week. The only change concerns days for children in F1 and F2 now we have confirmed staffing arrangements from September.

KEY INFORMATION:

Children only need to bring the following: their own lunch, a snack and a water bottle. 

  • It is essential that we adhere to the start and end times as we are running a phased entry/exit system.
  • Children should wear their school uniform
  • [Key Information | New River College] Children need to wear trainers and hooded coat please
  • Please send a large water bottle so refills are not too frequent
  • Please provide individual packs of tissues for your children to have on their desks

Therefore, please do not send children in with anything else e.g. PE kit, pencil case, etc.

We are sorry to announce that Gareth Rich is leaving us BUT so proud that his new role is a promotion in his new school! Gareth joined us in his second year of teaching and has honed his teaching and leadership skills in the seven years he has been with us. Gareth has brought humour, dedication and sporting skills (hockey anyone?!) to the school. His recent leadership of Maths has seen us develop our provision and he has shared his expertise with a number of schools around the county as a Specialist Leader of Education. Well Done Mr Rich- we will miss you!

Mrs Samantha Haywood who has previously taught in Year 3 at Abbey Gates and has a wealth of experience in KS2 (including teaching Spanish!) will take over from Mr Rich in Year 3.

Lovely news - Megan Kingswood is having a baby over the Summer, what beautiful news!

Take care everyone – get the sausages ready for the Summer Fair on 28th!
