Anti -Bullying week

This week pupils will be developing their ability to stand up to bullies through positive partnerships. They will be learning that every pupil is different and every pupil is unique and this needs to be celebrated. As always, there will be plenty of opportunities to show we are all 2%ers!

Class 3 have started the week’s learning by finding out about, and learning from, famous athletes who were bullied at School like Jessica Ennis-Hill. They will be sharing their work through school during collective Worship.

The newly formed Anti- Bullying Committee (ABC) will be taking centre stage throughout the week. They will be the listening ear for all pupils if they ever feel bullied by someone. They will also articulate the meaning of bullying, a repeated action to cause hurt to someone emotionally or physically. The ‘ABC’ will meet regularly with a member of the School Leadership Team (SLT) to ensure that incidents of bullying are rare and when they do occur, they are swiftly dealt with.

The Art of Being Brilliant!!

Welcoming Andy Cope back into school yesterday afternoon was a fabulous start to the new half term. Once again he helped pupils to realise the benefits of choosing to be positive and happy and in so doing, the difference it might make to their lives and others. Pupils in Class 3 built on his inspiring input to set their own personal aims for the end of the year.
Thank you Andy for helping us to be even more BRILLIANT!

Jeans for Genes

Thank you to all the pupils who through generous donations today, raised £100 for children with genetic disorders. We are so proud of your willingness to think of others and to always support different charities. I hope you enjoyed wearing your jeans and having fun with your friends.

Tuxford Head and staff’s meeting with families

Several Y5 and 6 parents attended today’s meeting with Dave Vernon and Julie Hethershaw to find out more about Tuxford Academy and transition into Year 7 from North wheatley Primary. They were pleased to hear that it should be possible for the bus to be re-routed to collect and drop off in the village. Thank you to everyone for attending.

On Thursday 19th October Chris Horrocks, Head of The Elizabethan Academy, will be coming into school at 2.30pm so that parents can meet with her too.

A great start to the new school year…

What a fabulous start to the new year we have had. Everyone has returned to school ready to learn and excited to be in their new classes, they are already making good progress!
EYFS enjoyed their day at Perlethorpe on Tuesday and had lots to tell us when they returned.
I took the opportunity to join the y1-4 pupils at swimming on Wednesday afternoon, they were keen to get into their new swimming groups and to demonstrate their confidence. It was lovely to see pupils who had learnt to swim or further developed their confidence during the holidays move into new groups. A big well done to those who moved into the deep end too!
On Friday, Laura came into school to start our Healthy Cookery Classes. Thank you to the families who attended, we hope you enjoyed it!

This coming week, I will be busy taking photos to go on the class blog headers. It is really nice that we can personalise them. On Monday we will be having our termly fire practice to make sure everyone knows what to do in the unfortuante event of a fire. At the start of the year, this is always a walk through with children prepared for the alarm.
Class 2 are very excited to be going to Magna on Tuesday, they have already been super scientists this week so Magna will further embed their skills. Class 3 have an extra science session on Tuesday when Mr Young from Worrksop college will be coming in to teach chemistry.

On Friday it is Jeans for Genes day, pupils can come to school in non-uniform but must wear their jeans and bring a donation for this excellent cause.
