Headteachers message


This week, a number of our staff have been liaising with colleagues and undertaking professional development to best support your children. Mrs Reeves attended a reading course and shared great training in the staff meeting; Mrs Baylis and myself attended another local primary and watched the Rosenshein teaching model in action and today a number of subject leaders met with Mrs Coote and myself to talk about their subjects and the curriculum.

Meanwhile the children have been incredibly busy gaining even more knowledge in their new topics. I was teaching Year 6 the other day and was particularly impressed with the arithmetic knowledge they are developing.

Hope you have a great weekend!
