House Point announcement Spring 2 for website

News from EBPS 17th May 2024

Dear parents and carers,

At the time of writing, our wonderful PTA are making the final arrangements for what I am sure will be another wonderful May Fayre! The sun is shining and we hope to see lots of families supporting this fundraising event. The amount raised will be revealed next week.

Our Year Six children have worked very hard during their SATs (Statutory Assessment Tests) week. Special thanks to our local Co-op for donating £100-worth of items for a pre-SATs breakfast club each morning which was well-attended and most appreciated. The children enjoyed their post-SATs treat of a picnic at the rec, rounders and an ice-cream from the ice-cream van! Their learning continues with lots still to cover on the curriculum before 23rd July, as well as their residential and leavers’ show! We continue to expect the highest standards of behaviour and learning from our Year Sixes during their final months of primary school. The results of SATs are not known to schools until July and will be included in every child’s end of year report.

Year Two have also completed some “quizzes” this week. Assessments at the end of Key Stage One are no longer statutory, however our children have been showcasing their learning throughout Key Stage One so that teachers know what to cover in the final term and to do a thorough handover to Year Three teachers ready for September. Again, the results of these quizzes will be shared in children’s end of year reports.

PSHE in the news

You may have seen some “headline grabbing” claims this week regarding possible changes to the teaching of PSHE and Relationships and Sex education in primary schools. Please do not be alarmed. We always follow the statutory guidance on this and parents, as ever, are informed about what children will be taught in PSHE and offered the opportunity to view the materials and the right to withdraw your child from certain aspects of this. We are again inviting parents in to view the materials we use to teach the “Changing Me” topic at the start of next term:

-Tuesday 4th June from 3:30pm for KS2

-Thursday 6th June from 3:30pm for KS1 & Reception

 Please see the attached letter from Miss Lawton for further details.

Reading

Our Reading champion classes were Poppy (for the fourth week in a row – they will get their extra playtime and hot chocolates on Monday!) and Crocus with individual winners this week Emily in Reception and Jake in Y3.

Whole school sports day

Save the dates! Plan A for our whole school sports day is Wednesday 3rd July in the afternoon. Our plan B date (in the event of inappropriate weather) is Thursday 4th July, again in the afternoon. The format will be slightly different this year and further details will be provided nearer the time.

Continuing on a sporting theme, next week we will launch the “Path to Paris” competition ahead of this year’s Olympic games in Paris. The children will learn about this in launch assemblies next week and we will share the parent information and details in next Friday’s newsletter.

Wishing you a lovely weekend,

Miss Lally

Please be considerate to our neighbours and the environment

We are aware of some parents who are waiting for their children at the end of the day and leaving their car engines running. For the sake of our neighbours and the environment, please turn your car engine off whilst waiting: The Highway Code states: "You must not leave a vehicle's engine running unnecessarily while that vehicle is stationary on a public road." And: “drivers can face fines for leaving the engine on while in a stationary car.” Thank you for your cooperation.

Richard’s Charity Cycle  

Please find attached a flyer from a parent of a child at the school who is undertaking a charity cycle ride from London to the Lake District to raise money for a charity which supports families whose children who are patients at Great Ormond Street Hospital.  Every £1 raised will help him to reach his target. Further details and the QR code which takes you to the JustGiving page can be found in the flyer.
