This half term we will be looking at the following value:


- Letter from Mr Griffin

Dear Parents,

I would like to thank all of you who sent back the remote learning questionnaires. The feedback was incredibly useful and will help us to review our online provision. 

We were very pleased to read that 100% of families, who completed the questionnaire, believe their child is receiving the right amount of work and getting the right amount of feedback from teachers.

The report indicated that some pupils are still finding it challenging to engage in remote learning especially when it comes to motivation. This is something which I will discuss with the teachers and see what we can do to support you in engaging your child. A starting point for parents with children in years one to six is to attend all of the daily Google Meets, this will provide a forum to ask questions about the learning and to talk to your teacher about any aspect of home learning. If you have specific questions for teachers, please do contact them via email or phone the school office and we will ensure that your question is brought to their attention.

Below is a summary of the responses which we received:

To keep children's body and mind healthy, we recommend that pupils try to do some kind of physical exercise each day (outside if possible). We do appreciate that the weather hasn't been particularly kind over the past few weeks. 

Finally, I would like to share with you the exciting news that we had a substantial amount of interest in the teaching vacancies at Charlton. We shortlisted yesterday and will be interviewing on Tuesday and Wednesday next week. I hope to be able to share more news with you on the outcome of these interviews before half term.

Have a great weekend

Mr Griffin

- Important information from Mrs Griffin

In order to keep everyone safe during this difficult time, can I remind all our families of the Government rules and restrictions during this national lockdown on meeting others:

Meeting others

You cannot leave your home to meet socially with anyone you do not live with or are not in a support bubble with (if you are legally permitted to form one).

You may exercise on your own, with one other person, or with your household or support bubble. This should be limited to once per day, and you should not travel outside your local area.

Stay 2 metres apart from anyone not in your household or support bubble.

For further information, please visit the Government website:

Using Google Classroom appropriately

Can I remind pupils that posting on the Google Stream is for work related questions and should not be used for any other reasons, thank you

Helen Arkell Dyslexia Charity

At Helen Arkell Dyslexia Charity, we have been granted a sum of money by National Lottery Awards for All so that we can offer free places on our HELP Parents Course to lower-income families. The courses help parents of children with dyslexia to support them at home with reading, spelling, maths and study skills. There are six online 1.5-hour sessions with support slides and recordings available if the parent cannot attend live. This is especially helpful while lots of children are doing their lessons at home.
If you feel you may benefit from this course, please visit our website:
