Today is the final day of the Spring Term. School will reopen for a 4 day week on Monday 15th April 2019.
Please read the following messages and updates for your information:
Very well done to those classes and pupils who have achieved 100% attendance this term. Attendance has continued to improve across school over the last 12 months with fewer children taking time out for holidays. Holidays are not authorised by school so it is great to see a reduction in these absences.
Absence from school
Please remember to inform the school office if your child is unwell and will be absent. You can now leave a message on our new telephone system. To speak directly to a member of the office staff, please select ‘pupil services’.
Miss Feltham returned from Uganda after the February half term with some exciting stories about her adventures in Africa. She had the most amazing and most emotional time and it was an experience that will live with her. She witnessed some great hardship and suffering and also great warmth and kindness. She will be sharing more of her experiences with the children in the new term.
Well done to the classes who have performed for us this half term in their Class Assembly. The children have learnt so much and have enjoyed sharing this with other children and their parents. We have seen excellent assemblies from 1W, 4WH, 5RB and 3H. We look forward to the remaining class assemblies which will take place in the new term.
Thank you to all of those parents who attended our Early Years Spring Sing this week. It was a real treat and the bonnets were amazing!
Well done to Y3 for a fabulous Ukulele concert, it’s hard to believe that the children have only had 10 lessons as they were so professional! Thanks to Trafford Music Service for the highly skilled music teachers who lead these sessions.
Thanks to our PTFA this half term for a great Glow Disco – always a popular event!
After great success last year, we hope to arrange another Multi-cultural Market Place in the new term. A few of our kind parents have agreed to support us with this and will share their skills to develop children’s understanding of Japan, India, China, Iraq and Uganda.
VIP visit from Sir Graham Brady
We were excited to welcome Sir Graham Brady into school last Friday. Sir Graham took a walk around the new building, shared cake and a cup of tea with the School Council and answered some excellent questions in an assembly with Y5 and Y6 pupils. We look forward to seeing our Member of Parliament again in the future.
It is time to pull out your summer uniform! After the holiday children may wear polo shirts with their shorts or skirts and girls may wear pale blue or green summer dresses.
Additional Day’s Holiday and Bank holidays
There will be an unavoidable closure on Thursday 2nd May as we have only recently been informed of a local election. Moving forward, the Community Centre will become the official polling station from 2020.
School will be closed on Friday 19th April and Monday 22nd April as this is Easter weekend.
The office is open to Parents/Carers from 08:40 to 15:50, please notify the office of any sickness or absencbefore09:00 hours each day.
Parking and crossing
A number of parents have been parking on the double yellow lines within the Bramley Farm and Community Centre parking areas. This is very dangerous and we have had reports form a number of parents regarding near misses. There are plenty of parking spaces, there is no excuse for parking on the double yellow lines.
Please do not park on the zig-zag lines outside of school. the traffic wardens regularly visit and do issue parking tickets regularly.
The children enjoyed having a visit from the Book Bus this week. It is a great novelty for them to hop on board and look at the selection of books which are all reasonably priced. The company give us 10% of the takings on the day so we made a profit of around £150 which will go towards purchasing new books for our library.

WOW! We have so many superstars who have stood out to their teachers for showing resilience and growing independence in their learning. A special well done to all of those Y1 and Y2 pupils who met my challenge to learn the first verse of the Daffodil poem by William Wordsworth!!
We will welcome you back to school on Monday 15th April 2019. I wish all of our families a restful and happy Easter break.
