Our Twitter feed is now active again. If you have a Twitter account, you can follow us by searching for Rushy Meadow Primary Academy or @Rushy_Meadow. If you don’t have an account we are hoping that our Twitter feed will soon be available to view on the homepage of our website.
Twitter is a fantastic way for us to raise our profile within Sutton and within the Cirrus Trust. Most schools in our area have a Twitter feed and use it to publicise achievements, news and reminders.
Please note that Twitter will not replace our normal channels of communication. Any information you need to know will still be sent home by letter or be included in your child’s year group blog posts.
This morning we had our Macmillan coffee morning and our PTA AGM. It was lovely to see so many of you at both of these events. I am excited to know that more people have joined the PTA this year and will build on the success of last year. Thank you for your support.
It has been lovely to welcome the children back to school today. There have been lots of happy smiling faces around school and the children looked smart and proud in their uniform. I hope they come home and tell you about their experiences in their new class.
Please read the newsletter that is being sent home today as it gives you important information about events and arrangements for school drop off and pick up. Remember, the newsletter can also be found on our website along with our class blogs that keep you informed about activities and learning in the classrooms.
Thank you for encouraging your children with their learning and your support for the school throughout this year.
I wish you all a safe and happy summer break. I look forward to seeing you all in September.
Remember…the children return on Tuesday 4th September.
Well done to everyone who helped to make yesterday’s Summer Fair a huge success. I would particularly like to thank the PTA who worked extremely hard to ensure that the day was filled with fun and enjoyment. Their organisation was fantastic. Well done PTA!
I would also like to thank all of you who came along to support us. Without you the day would not have been the success it was. I hope you enjoyed the activities in the glorious sunshine.
I am sure that the day will have raised a wonderful amount of money that will go to providing enriching experiences and resources for all the pupils.
I look forward to seeing you all again at our Sports Days.
I hope you are all enjoying the sunshine that we seem to have every now and then! Let’s hope it continues, particularly for our PTA Summer Fair that is taking place on Saturday 30th June. Please put the date in your diary. I know that the PTA are working extremely hard to make sure the event goes well and is a fun time for our whole school community. I look forward to seeing you on the day.
Over the past few weeks the children in Year 6, Year 2 and Year 1 have completed their SATS and phonic testing. The pupils have made a brilliant effort – well done to them and the teachers for their hard work too.
Thank you to those of you who were able to return your parent survey form. Today I have sent all the surveys off to be analysed by an external company. Many of the returned surveys included really encouraging views about the school. This is wonderful to see. I know that there are still things that we need to work on and get right – none of us in school are being complacent; we are all striving to do our very best. Once I have the formal analysis I will share the headlines with you.
I have enclosed a link to a webpage that gives you information about the proposed changes to admission arrangements at Nonsuch High School for Girls. Please click on this link: http://www.nonsuchschool.org/356/consultation-2018?preview
Finally, I hope to see many of you at the coffee mornings next week and do keep your eye on the school calendar so that you know about all the upcoming school events.
