Infant Newsletter

Friday 22nd March

Headteacher's Update

The staff team and Governors are constantly striving to improve the provision that we offer our children and families. Your feedback is always really helpful for us to identify what we are getting right and where we can do better.

This year we have focussed on improving the quality of learning in writing & maths as well as 'Life Learning', 'Outdoor Learning' and children's mental health. We have tried to create more opportunities for parents to be in school. You can read more about this work here.

Your voice is important in shaping the future journey of our Federation so I would ask all parents to take five minutes to complete our annual parent survey here. Thanks in advance for your feedback, which we will carefully consider.

I would like to thank all of our families who generously donated to our fundraising for Comic Relief. We raised £322.00 across both schools!!

This will be the last newsletter before the Easter break. The Spring term finishes on Thursday 28th March and pupils return at 8.45am on Monday 15th April. I would like to wish all of our families a very Happy Easter!


It was a pleasure to take part in a local cricket event recently held at the Willows Primary School in Newbury.

Roddy, Grace, Lydia, Denys, Oscar, Lily, Lottie, Bella, Immie and Tal represented our school in the event.  Mrs Worthington and Mrs Tucker were impressed with the high level of talent they showed on the 8 fun tasks around the playing field, even the members of the Cricket event commented on the power of the children's bowling skills. Thank you to the parents who transported the children.

Governor Vacancies

We currently have vacancies on our Governing body. The Governing Body plays an important role in improving our Federation. Governors are welcomed as valued members of the team and play a vital role in ensuring the governing body is aware of the views of parents and the local community.

We feel sure that there are parents prepared to take on this important role and give their time and commitment to helping us to continue to improve the school's performance. Find out more here.

Upcoming Events

Please note it has been necessary to postpone Monday 25th March's Parent Workshop on Managing Pupil Behaviour - unfortunately not enough parents signed up to make it viable to run. We will offer an alternative date in the summer term.

We hope that lots of parents will sign up to attend our upcoming E-Safety workshop, run by HARRAP ICT. Book here:

Phonics Books

A number of our phonics books appear to be missing. This means that we cannot always give children the next book in the reading scheme. Please can all parents check at home to see if they have any school books and bring them back into us on Monday.


A reminder to all parents to please ensure that no children use the Gym equipment or trim trail before or after school (i.e. during drop-off and pick up). Unfortunately our insurance does not cover any accidents.

We have a number of cases of headlice in school at the moment. Please can you check your child's hair regularly and treat if necessary.
