This week’s message (Friday 27 May 2022)

Friday 27 May 2022

The last message for this half-term comes from Mrs Weekes, our Head of School. There’s also a reminder about Moortown’s annual survey of parents and carers.

Today, the PTA did a grand job of decorating the school for the Queen’s Jubilee – thank you to them. The children have enjoyed a red, white and blue day with dancing from the decades, a picnic lunch and lots of royal fun.

This term is absolutely flying by – it’s hard to keep up. The longer days and warmer weather seem to be keeping smiles on faces, so long may it last!

We’re cracking on behind the scenes to move things along with The Green – the green space at the back of school. We’ve had a meeting with a contractor; he seemed extremely positive about the fact that we can clear the space well and make it safe to use. We’re looking to level an area of the land and get the grass sorted first and then we’ll make some wood chippings to create a path around the edge. Once the area is level and grassed then it can be used and we can develop other features over time.

While we’re talking about site issues, we’ve had a visit from the Health and Safety team this week to check that our school and procedures are as safe as they can be. The feedback from the visit was very positive which was fantastic to hear.

We’re really proud of our Y6 and Y2 children who have been doing the end of Key Stage assessments. They’ve all worked really hard and tried their best – that’s all we can ask! Well done, Y2 and Y6.

Year 4 have just had a really successful residential visit to Herd Farm; they were away for two nights (a few parents enjoyed their time off, skipping out of school!). It was great to hear that the staff at Herd Farm commented on how polite the children were – really great feedback.

Very best wishes to Miss Wilson who leaves today (temporarily) to start her maternity leave. Hopefully, she’ll get a little bit of rest before the baby makes an appearance.

Have a great half term holiday. Enjoy the Jubilee celebrations (we enjoyed ours today!) and we’ll see you back in school on Monday 06 June.

And here’s a reminder about the annual survey…

Your views matter. Every year, we invite you to complete a short survey. Complete the Moortown Primary survey here. It’ll only take a few minutes to complete – thanks!

Whatever you and your child get up to, have a happy and healthy half-term holiday.
