‘Working Together, Putting Children First within our Christian family'           


11th January 2019


Dear Parents/Carers,




Welcome back to school for the Spring term 2019!




School lunches next week


Monday – Pasta bolognaise


Tuesday – Chicken bites


Wednesday – Toad in the hole


Thursday– Chicken korma


Friday – Fish and chips




I do hope that everyone had a relaxing and enjoyable Christmas and a Happy New year to you all. The children have all come back refreshed and ready for what is an usually long Spring term. As we move into the depths of winter please ensure that if we get any bad weather that you check for any messages on your mobile devices for updates on school closures. We endeavour to keep our schools open but if we cannot get adequate numbers of staff in the building before children arrive then unfortunately as a last resort the school may have to close. As always my door is always open if you have any queries.


If a decision is made early in the morning that school will not open due to bad weather please listen to Yorkshire Coast Radio, Radio York or look on BBC Yorkshire website-


We will contact parents via text and email, please ensure your contact details are up to date.


Class 2


A warm welcome to Miss Jessica Snaith who is now working in Class 2 in the mornings, supporting our Y5/6 children with numeracy and literacy. Miss Boustead is concentrating on Y3/4. The class comes together, as one, in the afternoons. Both teachers will plan and assess together to provide your children with the best possible experiences and education.




Play School news


We have had a "SUPER" first week back in play school, we have followed on the children's interest in heroic characters after our pantomime visit to watch Robin Hood. We have taken on the roles of super heroes and enjoyed creating our own scenarios with the small world figures.










Renaissance accelerated reader


We are very pleased to now be using the Renaissance accelerated reading programme in school.


Renaissance is an online platform which assesses what level children are reading at and sets them a range of books which they can access using their ability level. It also provides an online quiz for children to access in school after they have finished a book to decode their understanding and comprehension of the book that has been read.






Clubs will start next week, w/c 14th January, text messages have been sent out advising what clubs your child has a place on. Lego remains popular so children who didn’t attend last term have been given priority. Mrs Ward and Mrs Scott are available every day for after school care, please speak to us about your childcare needs.
