HEADTEACHERS LETTER (Term 6)
Dear Parents, Staff, Governors and Children
It seems no matter how much we feel we are prepared, the last term is always the busiest. Your patience is welcomed here.
We are very pleased to hear the positive response for Sports Day this year and we wish to say ‘well done’ to Kestrels!
We have experienced a very good year where we move form strength to strength. The vast majority of children across the school have made good or better progress. We know that they work hard during most lessons. Our curriculum is providing them with some very rich and rewarding learning experiences. Our Sats results are very pleasing with over 80% for all subjects in KS1 & 80% achieving Level 4 in literacy at KS2. We have also a child who achieved L6 in Maths and Reading!
In our final term we will have been able to take all classes out on educational trip further afield. We are all very proud of our first link St Judes Primary school in Southwark, who enjoyed a great day with us which followed an exciting day for Stansted to join them.
The schools successful development is attributed to the hard work of all my staff for which I thank them. They, like myself, are committed to their own professional development and motivated by the challenge that teaching brings. We have in view of that rearranged our class structure:
Robin: Miss Kingston and Mrs Newstead
Woodpecker: Miss Welstead, Miss Osborne, Mrs Hearn and Mrs Mills
Chaffinch: Mrs Tervet, Mrs Cook and Miss Stronghill
Sparrow: Miss Welch and Mrs Parke
Mrs Hutchinson will continue to work part time for class support.
We wish to thank, in no particular order:
• Mr Embleton for completing the ‘Iron Man race’ our congratulations go to him and, with your support, raised £25:53 for cancer relief
• FOSS who continue to contribute to school life and provide those extras for all the pupils
• Our volunteer readers Mr Hyett, Mrs Stapleton and Miss Sheldon
• Parents who run after school clubs, Mr Aldridge and Mr White, Zoe and Nina
• All our Governors for their guidance towards the strategic development of the school
And finally, to yourselves and your children for making Stansted such a wonderful school.
On our return we shall see a different school as the mezzanine floor will be completed. This will be a new chapter in the development of Stansted school.
Finally, I would like to say well done to all the children because it is their energy and engagement in the joy of learning that has been so evident this year, well done all of you. Our best wishes go to Year 6 and we wish them all success for secondary school. On behalf of all the staff and I, we wish you all a very good, happy summer break and enjoy that valuable family time together. We return to school on Monday 5th September.
