Newsletter – 21st July 2017Newsletter 39 – 2016-2017


What a year! It has certainly been a year full of change!  The children have thrown themselves into their learning and made great progress. 

It is time to say farewell to our Year 6s – They have faced many challenges this year and risen to all of them. They are really ready to take their next steps and I wish all the Year 6 pupils the very best of luck on the next stage of their educational journey. Remember to always “Look to the Stars” in whatever challenge you face!

I have really enjoyed the last 2 terms as Interim Head. I feel that our school is in a really strong position as I hand it over to Mr Browse in September. I would like to say a huge thank you to all the staff who have worked relentlessly over the year and given me an incredible amount of support. A really big thank you goes to Mrs Hennessy who has stepped up brilliantly into the role of Acting Deputy Head.  I would also like to thank you all as amazing parents for all the hard work you do with your amazing children.  I wish you all a fabulous summer break whatever you get up to and I look forward to seeing you all back, ready for learning in September. Take care, stay safe and have fun!

Holiday Activities Inspiration

Are you wondering how you will fill the 6 weeks holiday? If so, we have plenty of ideas for you – we’ve got a list of hundreds of activities on over the summer – there are lots of free activities and experiences and many which are suitable for children with SEN.  There are over 60 pages of ideas and information – you can find it all on our website:

3rd –     Banksy (138)                   4th – Brunel (108)

Despite a great win for Dixie this week, it wasn’t enough to keep Rowling from winning Team of the Year.  Congratulations to everyone in Rowling for being awarded the most team points throughout the year. 

The final results are:

1st – Rowling (5651)                                 2nd – Brunel (5080)

Library News

Library stock-take has been going well, we currently have over 6000 books left to scan in. Thank you to everyone who has returned books back so far. Unfortunately it seems we have over 447  books that have gone missing from the school. Some books have gone from the Library and some from the classroom Libraries which is a great shame. If you find any books, please return them as soon as possible.


Gardening Club Award

Well done to Miss Campbell, Ceri and all of the Gardening Club children – we won Bristol in Bloom’s Learning Through Gardening Silver Award at the annual ceremony last Friday.  We were delighted to be recognised for our amazing school allotment and all the hard work that has gone in to making it a great learning environment

All that remains is to wish you a wonderful summer. Let’s hope the sun shines! Enjoy the break and we look forward to welcoming the children back on Tuesday 5th September.


Couch to 5k

Seven weeks ago, these ladies signed up to the Couch to 5k challenge and on Tuesday, they graduated at Pomphrey Hill, running the hilly and full 5k distance. 

None of them believed they could run for 60 seconds during their first session and now they are fully fledged runners!

We are continuing our running group in September, so if you see Coach Cox (Mrs Cox) and the team out running, give them a beep and a cheer to spur them on!

If you would like to take part in the challenge over the summer, download the Couch to 5k app and get your trainers on!


Music News

On 7th July the Key Stage 2 choir took part in a festival of music held at St Ambrose Church, Whitehall. We were joined by children from Chester Park Juniors, Summerhill Infants and St Joseph’s RC Primary School. We had a lovely colourful evening filled with song. Well done to all who took part.
