This term we will be looking at the following value:
It has a been a challenging week for the whole school community with several pupils and staff having to self-isolate. The existing team of staff have demonstrated their versatility and skill in working across classes to ensure that we have been able to continue delivering a high quality education without having to make substantial changes to the timetable.
Earlier this week, I sent a letter out to members of the PTA and Governing Board, asking for volunteers to support within school should the need arise. I was amazed by the positive response with so many members of our community happy to offer their time to support the school. Thank you to all of you for your support.
This week, we started the school chess club. Pupils from years one to six attended with many children having never played before competing alongside some more experienced players. We will run the chess club every Wednesday lunchtime until the February half term. I have included a few photos below from the first session.
You should have all received information about how to book a parents evening session on Tuesday 8th or Thursday 10th February. If you have any difficulty booking this, please contact the school office who will be more than happy to assist you.
Have a great weekend.

Oxfordshire County Council’s Road Safety Team are constantly looking to improve the safety of child pedestrians and so are reviewing the advice and guidance we provide to parents and carers.
To help us achieve this, we are evaluating the effectiveness of the Footsteps (Child Pedestrian safety advice for parents / carers) programme and would like parents and carers to help by completing an online questionnaire.
If you would like to keep your child safer on our roads, please visit Walking with children | 365Alive where you can download a copy of the Footsteps leaflet to provide you with guidance to support your child in becoming a safer and, eventually, an independent pedestrian.
Once you have downloaded the Footsteps guide, the link to the survey can be found further down the page, please click on the link to complete the short questionnaire which will then help us to keep all children safer.

If you have any questions regarding the guidance, please do not hesitate to get in contact with the school and we will go through this with you. If your child does have to self-isolate, the school will provide home learning for them for the duration of this time.
