Welcome to Willesborough Junior School Website
Headteacher Blog - February 2014
As we approach the holiday it is time to look forward to the second spring term. As ever it will be busy with lots of stimulating learning for the children and staff.
Our Fundraisers have set themselves a very big challenge to raise some £23,000 by the end of the year. Children have seen the construction of the ‘Trim Trail’ on the edge of the field and we are now awaiting the all-weather surface and some reasonable weather so that they can enjoy the use of this. The money for this was raised by the parents, children and local community over the last year at various events such as the Christmas Fair, Quiz and Picnic in the Park. We have one last phase of this play development – a climbing area which is the most exciting part of the plan.
The fundraisers have planned many more events to fund this including an Elvis Tribute night, a pamper evening and quiz for adults and a disco, sponsored event and non-uniform days for children. Keep your eyes open for the dates and tickets. We hope to have the project finished by the end of May so that Year 6 can also enjoy the new equipment.
Shortly after we return from the holiday we have parent consultations. We believe that the link between child, school and parent is essential to ensure the best for our children. You are encouraged to make an appointment and come with your child to meet with their maths and Literacy teachers in the week beginning the 3rd March. Paper letters came out on Friday 7th February and need to be returned by Friday 14th February.
We are trialling a new system to enable you to come and view your child’s/children’s work in their classrooms. We feel that this will open the school up more and your children, who are very proud of their work, can take you into the classrooms to show you their working environment.
Thank you to those parents who have already returned the parent questionnaires – please ensure that you do this before the 14th February so that they can be analysed over the holiday. We will post the results on this website as soon as they are available and we will be letting you know how we are addressing your concerns at the same time.
