Cafe Palmer

The year 6 children did a fantastic job running Café Palomar for the first time at Parents’ open afternoon. We just need more ‘customers’ next time! Although a few children did attempt to entice customers in with their dancing – Jordan, Bethany and Sonnie!!

Year 2 Learn All About Bats

Year 2 had visit from Lynne from the Wildlife Trust to help us learn about bats. She showed us photographs, shared lots of information which we then used to write our own non-fiction books about bats later. She also brought in two bats and we were able to have a close look and ask questions. We also took part in Bat crafts and this inspired us to continue with lots of Bat activities in the weeks after.

Each child brought back several souvenirs of their visit

Nursery Christmas Craft Day

We had a very busy time during our craft day. Families and friends came into Nursery to help the children with a variety of Christmas crafts.  We painted Jack frosts, made tree decorations, did lots of cutting and sticking and sprinkled loads of glitter! You could spot who had helped that day by their sparkly faces!

Thank you to everyone who came and joined in!

Ofsted Inspection

We recently had our long awaited Ofsted inspection. Overall, we were satisfied with the report, a copy of which can be found be clicking here. It is also available on the Ofsted website as well as on the School Profile page of this website.

We are delighted that, as you will read, the inspectors were very impressed with the variety of experiences that we offer the pupils, especially In Harmony, Lab_13 and Spanish. We were also pleased that they recognised the pupil’s good behaviour, and the great start that our youngest pupils receive in Nursery and Reception

As with all inspection reports, we have been given some areas to concentrate our improvements on this year. We have already made a good start on some of these areas. We will be getting a visit from HMI (Her Majesty’s Inspectors) sometime in the next few weeks who will judge the progress we have made so far. We will then have another inspection in about a year’s time. Thank you for your support during the inspection, and since, and your positive comments about the school to the inspectors. 

Healthy Living Week

On Friday 26th September Sarah Edwards a nutritionist from NHS Nottingham  came to visit us in school.  She led the lower years assembly and presented us with the updated healthy schools award in recognition of all the work we have been doing over the last two years or so to promote healthy lifestyles across the school. 

This was a fantastic end to our healthy living week during which all the children in school learned about dental health and the effect of sugar on our teeth.  Some of us  were horrified to find out just how much sugar is hidden in our favourite foods!   Lots of the children carried out an experiment so find out the effects of different liquids on hard boiled eggs.  (The egg shell reacts to the acids in our food in a very similar way to tooth enamel.)  It brought home in a very practical way the reasons why it is important to brush our teeth every day.  The children in reception and years one and two also received a new toothbrush and toothpaste to take home which they were all very excited about.

Mini Marathon

On Sunday 28th September, many children and their families came down to the embankment for the Mini Marathon. We were extremely pleased to see so many people get involved, from Nursery all the way up to year 6.  Everyone did really well on the run, had lots of fun and received a medal for their efforts. What a great way to top of a successful healthy living week. Thank you to everyone who came. I hope you enjoyed the day as much as we did.

Headteacher's Welcome Back Message September 2014

Hello and welcome back. We hope that everyone had a good break.  As I am sure you have noticed, the work on the roof is not quite completed. There have been understandable delays due to the wet weather but they are hopeful of being finished this week. The scaffolding will come down, but the work compound will remain as they then start the work on the boiler room to ensure we do not have a repeat of the heating problems we had last winter.  As far as the inside is concerned, things are looking great. The hall looks like a new hall. And the other changes we have made are all looking good. The children are looking forward to having their Spanish lessons in the new Spanish area. The next project is to create a fantastic library in the space at the back of the dining room.

We are hoping to have a display of past pupils’ achievements to inspire our current pupils. We would love to hear about great GCSE results, college places, completed courses and graduations, business or sporting success, or any other notable achievements. A photograph with a brief explanation would be great. We are all looking forward to another successful year.
