Leave early, travel slowly, arrive safely

Please remind your children to be vigilant AT ALL TIMES as they travel to or from school. This week one of our younger children was involved in a serious accident whilst cycling down Mount Avenue having collided with a car that was pulling out from a driveway that was obscured from view. Thankfully the child has made a full recovery but it serves as a reminder that when children are travelling at speed - either running, cycling or on a scooter - they must treat every driveway (noticeable by a dropped kerb) as if they are crossing a road.

There continues to be a buzz of lively activity across the school. Yesterday morning some of our governors walked around the school and came across children playing in the Early Years, violinsts practising, the Year 6 children rehearsing, sports in the junior playground and classes of children quickly returning from play to focus upon their learning. And that's not mentioning the numerous visits for new Reception and Nursery parents that ran through the morning. In the evening, I had the pleasure of attending the PTA meeting to discuss a range of issues and plan for the year ahead. As we draw towards the final days of this academic year, I want to acknowledge all the staff at this wonderful school who do so much more than the ordinary to give our children the very best opportunities. And thank you to the parents and carers who share in our efforts to help us make sure the school never "rests on its laurels."
