Industrial Action 27th June – PARTIAL CLOSURE

Posted in Closure, General News |   2 Comments »

As we indicated on the letter sent home on Friday 14th June, you will be aware that the NASUWT and the NUT have balloted their members for industrial action.

The school has received notification that the above trade unions which represent teachers within the school intend to take industrial action on Thursday 27th June 2013.

As staff within the school are members of these unions the school will be affected by industrial action.

We have undertaken a risk assessment for the school and have made the decision to partially close the school for pupils in the following classes:-

Class 1a, 2a, 3a, 4b, 5b & 6a.

Your child/ren should return to school on Friday 28th June 2013.

Please note that all siblings who’s classes are unaffected must attend school as normal otherwise they will be noted as an unauthorised absence.

Any absences either the day before or after the strike will also be noted as an unauthorised absence.

We apologise for any inconvenience this industrial action may cause you.

Aslan’s creation

Look at what Aslan made during wet lunchtime.
Can you guess what it is?

Children transformed to journalists!


Something amazing happened in 4B- we were transformed back in time and we all became fantastic journalists! Our challenge was to write a newspaper report about evacuation during WW2.
We used our creative minds and began by extending our knowledge on WW2 and then interviewed some tearful evacuees. Finally we used ICT to publish our reports.
Take a look at some of our reports. Do you think we have achieved our challenge? How can we improve our reports?


Last week’s winners were Momanah and Hafsa.
Momanah was chosen for producing a fantastic information text about Global Warming – she used subheadings, paragraphs and technical words!
Our second winner, Hafsa, was chosen for being an excellent role model in and out of school – she works hard, is always poilte and is always smiling! 🙂
