Welcome from the headteacher
This is the first message I have shared with you all using our new website. It has made things much easier by commissioning the same provider for our website and our parent app. I hope that it works for you and further improves communication between home and school for the benefit of our children.
A recent assembly of note was when Mr Spence spoke about his job in computing, technology and design especially how he had produced our school’s new mission statement using lego. We talked about the significance of it being made out of small building bricks – just like our school’s aim of building all our children, staff and families into a strong school community, brick by brick. Children talked about building on the right foundations for a strong future – the foundations of the Christian values.
Where has this year gone? We have already sent off the end of key stage 2 SATs tests and have started the end of key stage 1 national tests today. End of year assessment tests will soon be taking place for the interim year groups. Apart from assessment, other words of the moment are; Royal Wedding, Year 1 phonics check, sports day, trip to Beeston, trip to Boulder Adventure, summer fair, Y6 prom and leavers’ service. Indeed, we will soon be at the end of term. Soon, teachers will be completing their annual reports for parents and carers in which we seek to celebrate outstanding progress and attainment across our school.
We are now arranging the intake evening for our new starters in Foundation Stage – another full class of amazing young people embarking on their Nutgrove journey.
I pray that all our children show their full potential both academically, socially, emotionally and spiritually as we move into the last half term of this year – to really do their best always, everywhere.
I would like to finish this message with some of the words relating to education as part of the Prayer 150 initiative for our town.
