'Look Who' and Important Dates

Children and families,

The Summer term is always a busy, busy term and although we are currently living in unusual times, this year is no different.

Below you will find some important dates coming up with links to blogs that will give you a little more information.

Virtual Sports Week: 6th -10th July
In the garden, at home or at school, all pupils are invited to take part in our Virtual Sports Week.  Each day we will blog and share on social media two activities for you to take part in and score.  More details can be found here.

End of Year Reports: 8th July
You may notice when you receive your child's report some changes compared to previous years.  These are:
  • you will receive an electronic version of your child's report.  You must click on the link at the end of the report to acknowledge receipt, and to add any feedback once you have read it;
  • you can discuss the report in your final telephone call with you child's class teacher.  They will call you before the end of term;
  • progress made by your child has been measured against mid-year curriculum targets, not end of year targets as in previous years;
  • following the cancellation of the 2019/20 national curriculum assessments, the DfE has laid regulations to remove the requirement to report the outcomes of key stages 1 and 2 tests, end of year EYFS profiles or teacher assessments in this year’s reports;
  • DfE has laid regulations to remove the requirement to report pupils’ attendance data for the 2019/20 academic year, in recognition of the impact of coronavirus (COVID-19) on the possible attendance.
Transition: 10th July
Unfortunately 'moving up' day and 'meet the teacher' in person will not be able to take place this year.  However, our hardworking staff have compiled a blog so that every pupil can find out who their new teacher will be, what class they will be in and the opportunity to fill in an online form giving the new teacher some useful information.  This information will be blogged and released on 10th July.  In addition to this, where possible, teachers will be making contact via telephone with their new pupils.  

Last Day of Term
A polite reminder that Friday 17th July will be our last day of a very unusual academic year.

'Look Who'!
As ever, so much creativeness, hard work and imagination has gone into your work this week.
