I was delighted to see many parents at the Development Review meetings on Wednesday evening. We will, of course, send out to all parents a summary of what was said and a copy of the presentation, which hopefully will bring everyone up to date. I also mentioned that I am hoping to establish a Parent Review Committee and will be sending a letter out about this next week. I also look forward to meeting with parents from Year 4, 5 & 6 on Thursday 22 January at the Internet Safety Meeting. The meeting will start at 6.30pm. This is a change from the published time.

It feels like we have all settled back into the school routine this week, and the early starts are not such a shock for us all. The pupils have been working hard and are getting into all their new topics for the term. The senior pupils were interested to hear the School Council present the assembly on Monday. They explained their role and the projects and discussions they have been involved in last term. This will help the pupils when selecting their new School Council Reps this term as they will have a good understanding of what is involved. We are also continuing with our work on safer parking and have this week been supported by the police and our Junior Road Safety Officers. Please play your part by making their job easier.

The Year 6 football team attended the ISA 5-a-side Football Tournament in Barnet yesterday. Although they did not come home with a trophy they played well and should all be proud of their efforts and the results they achieved on the day.

Mr Grosse and I attended a Bellevue management meeting on Pastoral Care in schools across the group on Wednesday and I was delighted when we were able to bring back some interesting new initiatives to consider and that other schools found our suggestions interesting. The opportunity to share our ideas is invaluable in helping us to move the school forward.
