Notes from the Head 25th October

The end to a very busy half term with all pupils happy and smiling having achieved so much during the eight weeks. I think the school staff will be very much looking forward to some relaxation time over the holiday. We had a very successful parents evening at the beginning of the week which was made much nicer with Janice providing a delightful spread of school dinner samples which everyone enjoyed.

Thank you for the continued support of our After School Club committee and staff. They have worked really hard to meet all the legal requirements to keep everything running smoothly and effectively. We had a full governors meeting on Wednesday and they were particularly pleased at the very positive end of Key Stage assessment pupil data. Governors continue to monitor pupil progress and the schools improvement plan.

School council since being elected have started to have a major impact on our school improvement plan. They have worked alongside Nercwys School Council and are in the process of changing behaviour management strategies in both settings. A very big thank you to all the parents who organised the pumpkin disco on Thursday night. This was a very successful evening and all the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and were a credit to all of our Nannerch families. Everyone had made a huge effort with their costumes, I was very glad not to choose the winner but I could see why Tilly and Ava were recognised and given a prize of pumpkin treats!

The end of term was celebrated with a harvest service in church with the children’s current favourite song, ‘Our God is a Great Big God’ complete with all the lovely lively actions! Many thanks for all the food contributions which are going to the food bank and the lovely tea and cake following the service.

To remember service men and women for Armistice day, we are holding a special event for Captain Archdale on the 11th November at 2.15 in the school hall. Please come along to be part of this very special event. Have a lovely half term and we look forward to seeing you all on the 4th November.
