Y5 Living and Growing

Y5 living and growing will start next week i.e. week commencing 25th June.  If you do not agree to your child taking part please speak directly to your child’s teacher by Monday morning registration.

Thank you



Transition day is on the morning of Tuesday 3rd July.  Your child will have the opportunity to meet their new teacher and see their new classroom.   Letters will be going home on Monday with details of your child’s new class.

If your child has a 1:1 learning support assistant you will be informed next week as to who their new learning support assistant will be. There will be an opportunity for you to meet with them and please be assured they will be visiting your child regularly over the next few weeks.

Due to the numbers of pupils on role increasing each year, currently we have over 670 children, from September the school will be organised into 4 phases:

  • Phase 1 – Nursery and Preschool – Phase Leader is Mrs Jones
  • Phase 2 – Reception and Year 1 – Phase Leader is Mrs Buckley
  • Phase 3 – Year 2 and Year 3 – Phase Leader is Mrs Bennett
  • Phase 4 – Year 4 to Year 6 – Phase Leader is Mr O’Brien

The new phase approach will help support with transition from EYFS into the National Curriculum and help address the difficulties children face when moving from the infant department to the junior department. Reception pupils will now keep their same class teacher as they move into year 1.  We feel this approach of having their teacher for 2 years will offer more stability for our young pupils.

From September Miss Tinsley will be known as Mrs Finney after her marriage last summer.

Miss McNamee, one of our learning support assistants has recently got married and she will now be known as Mrs Longfieldcl
