As you will be aware, as a priority in the Improvement Plan for the school, we have introduced staff and pupils to the idea of Growth Mindset and now we would very much like parents to be involved too.
Over the session we have been working with John Paul Fitzpatrick from ‘Teachmindset’. His company’s aim is to help pupils, teachers and parents have the confidence to reach their own potential. John Paul believes that by providing a supportive yet challenging range of Interventions for all of us, it will result in developing growth mindset. This in turn will help raise attainment in our pupils which is one of the key drivers in the National Improvement Framework from the Government.
You are invited to attend an information evening led by John Paul on the 27th February 2018 from 7pm-9pm in the school hall. Some of our senior pupils will be participating in the event.
John Paul is a very inspiration speaker so I hope you are all able to join us for the evening. Please feel free to bring the children with you if you are unable to get a babysitter. Refreshments will be provided.
World Book Day is on Thursday 1st March and this years’ theme is ‘Let’s Share a Story’.
We encourage children to dress up as their favourite book character and invite them to bring in their favourite book to share with everyone in their class. This is optional but the children seem to enjoy it. Children will be issued with a book token which can be taken to their local bookseller and exchanged for one of the TEN new and free World Book Day books. Alternatively, children can use their book token to get £1 off any full price book or audio book instead. It’s their choice, just as long as the book or audio book costs at least £2.99.
Book tokens can be redeemed at many independent bookshops: Waterstones, WHSmith, Asda, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s and Tesco stores. The World Book Day book tokens are valid from Monday 26th February–Sunday 25th March 2018.

Just a reminder that tomorrow (Friday 16th February) is our second Eco Day and pupils can come dressed in green or blue to mark the day. This is optional and there is no charge for dressing down. Thank you in advance for your support.
