Headteachers message

Another busy week here at Glebe to finish the term. The children have enjoyed another Core Values with rockets, temples and bubbles. They certainly looked to be having a great time.

I had the pleasure of working with a Year 6 Maths group this week. I was blown away by their knowledge of converting and ordering fractions, decimals and percentages. As SATSapproaches, I have every confidence in them.

It’s been nice seeing the brighter evenings and the warmer weather arrive – I hope this continues for the Easter break.

Wishing you all a fun -packed and restful holiday. We look forward to welcoming you back on Monday 17th April.

Unfortunately, the number of children attending Friday After school club, after 4:15pm is not sustainable for the school from a financial point of view. From After Easter, Friday after-school club will finish at 4:30pm every week. We apologise for any inconvenience this causes. It was a difficult decision but does mean we can avoid a steep rise in prices. I really do appreciate your understanding.

A huge well done this week to:

RRB: Ayla M and Ethan K RD: Ashton W and Florence T
1N: Lilah G and Theo B 1R: Harley C and Isabelle D
2/3R: Henry S and Mia G 2/3BV: Iyla W and Archi D
2/3A: Leo L and Olivia H  
5L: Amelia C and Archie R 5P: Ella-Rose F and Ivy S
6A: Magdelena C and Brandon S-E 6G: Ava C and Pranav D


Our new website goes live with our new branding shortly after Easter. Watch this space for the exciting update!


Noah in 5P achieved his orange and green sash in Kung-fu this week. We are all so proud of Noah’s dedication.

His sister, Nellie in RD starts this Saturday!
