HeadLines, Friday 12 January
Within our curriculum Compass we have our Creative Curriculum, projects, enrichment sessions, Focus Days, and an exciting clubs program. I am very proud of how our curriculum prepares our pupils for their future lives.
This week’s theme is commitment. At the beginning of a new term our pupils will be trying something for the first time with our programme of societies, clubs and activities. We have spoken this week with pupils to have a go and stick with it!
It is so important that school and home empower our children to enjoy and develop their commitment skills, to understand why we learn and to give them opportunities to develop and use their new skills and knowledge not only in their academic subjects in school but in their everyday lives, it seems all too easy to give up.
Coming up we this week we have Wonder Day, 18 January, for Year 5, full of new experiences for our pupils. At the end of the day, 3pm, we invite Year 5 parents in to listen to Dominic Mott, Head at Hurstpierpoint College. Thanks in advance to Mr Mott for sharing his expertise and support.
We currently have a significant number of our Year 8 pupils preparing for their scholarship days for their senior schools, with some pupils already achieving excellent results – well done. Navigating future school options is challenging, so do please contact the school for guidance, after attending our Future School’s Information evening on 30 January. We have representatives from many independent schools, to register, please contact [email protected].
Thank you to all the parents joining us for our New Term Parents’ Breakfast, nicely rounding off the end of our first full week back. The children have very excitedly settled back into their learning and the hubbub of excitement around the school is tangible!
