Caring Community
As you know the governors have launched the new vision statement for our schools. This has been written with everyone’s help and has taken all ideas and views into account.
Our new strapline is… nurturing a caring community in which every child learns well. We will be using this on our letters and leaflets from now on.
Sport Relief
We had a fantastic time raising money for Sport Relief. At Holt House the children, with many of their grown ups, all completed the mile – with some help from 5NH. At Carterknowle there was lots of very enthusiastic participation in the sponsored run. We raised £869.29 from the Holt House sponsored mile and £658.71 from the Carterknowle sponsored run, making the great total of £1528 raised by our schools. Well done to everyone and thank you for your support.
Carterknowle Review
Two officers from the local authority will be visiting Carterknowle on Wednesday 2 May to assess the progress it has made since its Ofsted Inspection in June 2017. They will be available on the yard at the beginning and end of the school day to talk to Carterknowle parents.
Parent Partnership
Thank you to everyone who filled in and returned our questionnaires before Easter. These responses have been collated, are being sent out and are also available on the websites. We are delighted that the overwhelming majority of responses are so positive. If there is anything that you are concerned about, please approach your child’s teacher or a member of the senior leadership team.
