News

We have had a very successful and productive couple of weeks. In athletics the children won the Large Schools Tournament, the Drama Club performed a spectacular version of Aladdin and the Tag Rugby, American Football and Cricket teams have also done exceedingly well in their competitions. Year 5 took part in a festival organised by the Tewkesbury School head teachers, for the pupils, to come together and work collaboratively to overcome physical challenges and mental problem solving. Again our pupils received awards for their successes as individually as well as a team.

Monday we launched our Science Arts week with an amazing assembly led by Mr Shaw who demonstrated several science experiments to ignite the children’s curiosity for the coming days.

Thank you for the offers of help. If you have not yet paid £3 for the children’s T shirts please do so.

Uniform

On our summer parents evening (Thursday 19th July) at 3.30pm we will be show casing the new royal blue uniform. Whilst the logo sweatshirts and cardigans are compulsory, there is also a range of other uniform items that parents may wish to order for September.  Parents will be able to select uniform items by completing an online form.  Uniforms can then be collected on the two INSET days (3rd & 4th September) when the school will be open throughout the day.

Weather

A huge thank you to those parents who have provided us with gazebo’s this week, to help shelter the children from the extreme heat. Can I ask that the children continue to wear sun hats and sun cream during this extremely hot spell.

Parking

From next week we will be issuing our own parking notices to those parents who continue to drive and park in Rope Walk. It is frustrating and annoying for those parents who do park responsibly. Most parents need to get to work but set out earlier so that they can park responsibly and this is what we are asking those parents who continually use Rope Walk to do the same.  Many schools in the town have an issue around parking for parents but we are the only school where free parking permits are granted to stop irresponsible parking. It would be amazing to share with those schools that we are 100% clear of parent parking by our school.
