HEADTEACHER’S MESSAGE BOARD
School Events Many thanks for all the hard work which has gone into organising the Advent Wreaths/Blessings, the Prayer Partners’ Mass/Cards, Travelling Cribs and the Christmas Fayre. We are also looking forward to seeing the Nativities next week also. The Catholic Life of the school is excellent and continues to thrive. Well done to all concerned!
Visit from the Diocese Father Tim and Julie Noble, from the diocese of Leeds, were really impressed with their visit to school and thanked all for making school such a vibrant, happy place for the children where they could receive a quality, Catholic Christian education. Well done, everyone.
Prayer Partners’ Mass The Prayer Partners Gifting Mass was lovely! Thanks to all concerned. You child should have brought home a Prayer Partners’ Card. Please encourage to pray for their Prayer Partner daily, as their Prayer Partner wll also be praying for them. Thanks.
New Appointments We appointed Elene Foster on Tuesday who will start in Y2 after Christmas. Miss Hudson will move to Y4 to ensure a smooth transition when Miss Coyne leaves to take up a new teaching role at Shibden Head Primary Academy. Mrs Walker will also be finishing at Christmas and thank them both for their hard work and dedication they have shown towards the school and the children in their care. We also congratulate and thank Mrs Lumb who has secured a new role at St Mary’s, Halifax, for after Christmas. We wish them all happiness and every blessing in the future.
Basic Skills Interim Assessment During the Basic Skills Interim Visit on Monday afternoon, Tina Warden was really pleased with the progress we have made since our last review. She noted the good standards our children make throughout school and liked the extended writing visible through all subjects. She also noted the consistency in marking in all subject areas. Our whole school targets from the visit are to gain consistency in marking and feedback throughout school to further develop the progress children make from written feedback. Well done to the staff and children for working so hard to raise expectations and improve the standards throughout school.
