Dear Parents/Carers,

We are heading towards the end of the academic year (three weeks to go) and as is usual at this time of year, we are very busy. Some children find this time of year very stressful – as we know, not everyone likes change. Pupils will find out who their class teacher next year will be on Wednesday 3rd July just before transfer day on Thursday 4th July.


Mr Greig, my lovely husband, has been in school this week putting up the sixteen pieces of artwork on the walls of the corridors and the stairs. They look amazing and children should feel proud of their contribution to the pieces. Have a look next time you are in school.


On Tuesday after school and Wednesday morning, year five and six parents/carers had the opportunity to see the exhibits from the Pharaoh’s homework projects. Again, I was amazed to see the exhibits created by our pupils and family members – you are such a clever lot!! Mr Haltof, the new Head Teacher was in school and was also impressed – I love showing off our school!!


Next week you will receive a letter from us telling you about a Lock Down drill which will take place on Monday 1st July at 10am. This is only a drill so do not panic if you hear that the school is in lockdown. Just a word of warning – no pupils will be allowed to leave or enter the school for the duration of the drill – this will take about 20 minutes. Also, no phone calls can be taken. This drill is a Health and Safety procedure which should be carried out at least annually.


Our whole year five group was invited to Hinckley Academy yesterday to spend the day taking part in an exciting set of activities about ‘Fantastical Beasts’. As is par for the course, our pupil behaviour and good learning attitudes were praised by the staff at the school. Well done all!


On Wednesday afternoon the Junior Academy of Music pupils and staff gave a performance to the school, showing us what they have been learning this year. It was absolutely brilliant! We have such a lot of talented pupils.


Today, we held our Sports’ Day – luckily, the weather was just right, not too wet, hot, cold or whatever the British weather throws at us! It was great to see so many parents/carers and other family members turning out to support their children.

Best wishes, Margaret Greig
