Parent progress evenings

Many thanks to all parents who attended last week’s parent progress evenings. We hope that you found these meetings useful and that it provided you with a clear idea of the level your child is working at and what we are doing to try and move them on in their learning.  Working closely together is really important and enables our pupils to achieve so well.  If you do have any concerns regarding your child’s progress, please do speak to your child’s classteacher or contact Mr Richardson.

My Happy Mind

As you will be aware, all classes have been using ‘My Happy Mind’ as part of our curriculum this year to help our children learn about their mind and how to be healthy mentally.  A letter was emailed to all parents on Thursday with details of how parents can access the ‘My Happy Mind’ app for free!  Please try to have a look at this with your child(ren).  We hope that you find it helpful.  Any feedback would be most welcome!
