Message from Mrs. Castell
Congratulations to our wonderful cheerleading team, who took part in their first competition on Tuesday. We came second, which is fantastic especially considering this is a totally new sport for our school! Only two points between us and the winners! My thanks go to all the staff who accompanied the children, in particular to Mrs Scott-Simons and Miss Wakeling for undertaking all the training and arrangements to take part. We are so proud of the children!
We also had a visit and demonstration from the amazing Night Owls. The owls performed a special assembly on Thursday, with each owl flying the length of our hall which was absolutely incredible for the children to see. Each child had their photo taken with Whisper the Barn Owl, which you will be able to purchase if you wish. Details will be sent home next week.
We are considering how to enable parents to become more familiar with the governing body. A letter from our joint Chairs, Esther Burton and Matt Coffey, follows this message and you can contact them both by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Esther Burton will be on the playground at morning drop off on Thursdays and Fridays.
This week we welcomed Squirrels' parents for lunch, it was a pleasure to host you all. Dates for upcoming parent lunches are:

A reminder that we have Reading Monday this coming Monday and Family Learning Time on Tuesday 7th February. We also have a dress down day on Thursday for Valentine's Day. Children are invited to wear something red, with a £1 donation for WISPA. We close for the half term break at 3.10pm on Thursday. Friday 10th February is a non-pupil day.
Every Monday and Friday, a group of Year 6 children come to be playleaders in our playground. A big thank you to the Junior School staff for their help to make this happen!
Attendance this week is 94% compared to our school target of 96%. A reminder that we share NHS guidance on common childhood health conditions on our website.
Enjoy the weekend.
