More fantastic news!

We have just been told that the children and staff in school have been awarded the prestigious Primary Science Quality Mark at Gilt Level. This has only been awarded because the assessors who have been into school have been so impressed with the quality of science work done by the children under the guidance and because of the planning of their teaching staff.  The children here are extremely passionate about this hands-on subject and it shows in both their written work and also their conversations about what they learn.Thanks to those of you who have attended our science events and have also patiently allowed your children to take over your kitchen to explode their own volcanoes or play with food dyes on tissue paper; all this shows the kids how you value their learning.

A special thanks must go to Mrs. Hilton and Miss. Byrne, who have put together a portfolio of evidence that blew the assessors away and organised so many of the memorable experiences the children take away with them.

Well done Wrockers!

Stranger Danger

HLC Secondary has reported the following incident.

 

Yesterday after school in Marlborough Road (Hadley) near to a white put where the new houses are being built the following incident occurred.

 

  • Metallic silver car (quite small)
  • 3 men, mixed-race
  • The car drove towards our Year 8 student and pointed to her to ask her to stop
  • Student carried on walking, car pulled up and the front passenger man got out and walked towards her
  • The man asked her how old she was, the student ignored him and carried on walking. He carried on following her and asked her again.
  • When the student responded with her age (13) and told him to leave her alone he asked when she was 14. She replied it was none of his business and he said “you’re too young anyway.”
  • He then walked away, got back in the car and drove off.

 

This incident has been reported to the police.

Opinions please…

Our school has been asked to present a workshop to a group of other schools about how we go about supporting children in school. I have to speak for 45 minutes on this and am absolutely petrified! I would love it if you could help me but allowing me to use some quotes from yourselves about how you feel we support families at school (if indeed you feel that we do??!).

If you have something to say, please add it to the comments on FB or email school. We are always looking for suggestions of how we could help further to make life better for your children and you if we can, so all comments, good and bad, will be useful.

Many thanks and wish me luck on the 11th June!

 

Thank you Makita

We were visited this morning by Ian from Makita who had heard of our track fundraising through a letter written by one of our children and her mum who took it to work.

Not only have they donated various VERY expensive power tools but also got the management team to  put their hands in their pockets and donated £100!

A huge thank you also to all of the people who have brought in money this morning. What a fantastic community we are part of. A proper thank you, with all the names on, will be posted once I’ve got Mr Spragg back to do all the fiddly ICT bits!
