YEAR SIX SATs
Team Westfield has been brilliant again this week! The year six pupils have completed their SATs and had a McDonald’s treat today (thank you to Mrs Cheney for collecting that). All staff who supervised the tests were impressed by the positive attitudes of our pupils and their focus throughout the week.
Lots of staff throughout the school invigilated the tests and other staff covered missing colleagues so everyone was involved one way or another.
The admin staff, especially Mrs Holt, were as usual organised and efficient. She ensured that the test papers were locked away and in the right place at the right time – not an easy task.
Although the DfE says that the tests are not formal, a lot of procedures have been built in to maintain the integrity of the testing system and this involves many staff members ensuring all goes to plan. Mr Lambert, who is Head of Year, made sure it all went well and I would like to thank him and his team for all their brilliant teaching throughout the year.
PARENTS’ EVENING NEXT WEEK
This term, we are having Parents’ Evening for years three, four and five on Monday 20th, Wednesday 22nd and Thursday 23rd May. You should have already booked an appointment through the online system and we look forward to seeing you to discuss your child’s report and progress and give you a chance to look at your child’s books. I am also on site should you want to speak to me. For year five parents and carers, the teachers will be in the school hall.
Thank you to all the parents and carers who completed the comments slip about their child’s report – much appreciated!
3S ASSEMBLY NEXT WEEK
Next week, it is the turn of Miss Seavers’ class to perform their class assembly to the school and to their families. The assembly is all about self-control.
They will be looking at ways of making good decisions and then showing how self-control can help you to become successful in your talents. Looking forward to seeing that assembly!
Can I remind parents/carers that pupils should not be wearing open-toed strappy sandals to school as they offer no real protection against the everyday hazards of a busy school. Keep the lovely, sparkly sandals for outside school!
