St. Mary's Junior School Newsletters
Friday 13th July 2018
It has been one of the busiest weeks in recent years in the life of our school and I would like to thank and congratulate all involved in the many events.
Section 5 OFSTED Inspection
On Tuesday and Wednesday the school received an inspection from Ofsted. The inspectors looked in great detail at every aspect of our school, and gave feedback to members of the Governing Body on Wednesday afternoon. We expect the report to be published in two to four weeks, and we will alert parents how to read it when it is available.
Key Stage 2 Test Results
On Tuesday we also received the results of the Key Stage 2 tests from May. We were delighted with the excellent results that the children achieved. The children can feel really proud of their results.
Parent / Teacher interviews
Many thanks to parents for their understanding after we had to move the evening for the Parent / Teacher interviews, owing to the Ofsted inspection. Teachers were available on Thursday evening, and it was lovely to listen to many positive comments.
The children in Year 3, 4 and 5 thoroughly enjoyed their time last night. We raised £389.73, thank you all for your support. I am writing before the Year 6 Prom, but I am sure it will be a joyous event.
On Tuesday it was wonderful to welcome back a former pupil to the school. Raymond Ssekalongo was a student until 2001. He now works in the police service and Year 5 children were fascinated to hear about his work as part of their social studies.
The achievement certificates this week are awarded to
Evan in 3D, Gabriel A in 3M, Jacob in 4L, Willow in 4S, Jermaine and Wesley in 5C, Kacper in 5V, Lilianna in 6C and Stephen in 6O. The Headteacher’s award goes to Mr Williams. The Kindness Award goes to Jessica in 6C. Swimmer of the week is Cassandra in 4L.
Have a good weekend.
