Summer Parental Questionnaire

Dear Parents and Carers,

This week will be the final time that you can fill in the parental questionnaire following the book look and parents consultations which happened just before the half term break.  We had excellent attendance at both of these events, so thank you for finding time to celebrate the wonderful work that your children are producing.  If you haven’t already done so please can you take a few minutes to let us know how we are doing

The questionnaire will close at 4pm on Friday 18th June and then we will analyse the information and provide you all with a summary.  You views are really important to us so please do fill in the form.

Take care,

Miss Staniforth

***Year 5 Forest School News***

Dear Parents/Carers of Year 5 pupils,

We have managed to secure an exciting additional experience to Forest School for the Year 5 pupils on Thursday 24th June, which will be their final Forest School session this year.  Arthog Outreach are bringing their canoes to Deer Park and the children will have the opportunity to participate in half a days canoeing on the lake.

As the children have missed so many opportunities over the past 12 months we wanted to enrich their school experience this year.  There will be a small cost associated this includes, instruction and equipment (boats, paddles and life jackets).  Payment to be made via ParentPay at the cost of £7.50 per pupil.

More information about details of what your child will need for the day will follow nearer the time.

We hope that the children enjoy this opportunity,

Miss Staniforth

Public and Council’s partnership approach gets shortlisted for national award – vote today

Dear Parents and Carers,

Please see below a message from Telford and Wrekin Council.

Public and Council’s partnership approach gets shortlisted for national award – vote today.

There is just over a week left to show your support for Telford & Wrekin Council after it was shortlisted for the ‘Council of the Year’ national award by Cooperatives UK.

Telford & Wrekin Council Leader, Councillor Shaun Davies said: “Our success as a council is based on your support and guidance, so if you think we’re doing a good job then please help us win and cast your vote today.

“I do my best to listen and make sure that everyone who lives in Telford and Wrekin, no matter what their background and circumstances, benefits from a strong economy, can fulfil their potential and live well, in a good, safe home.”

During the pandemic, the Council supported 22,000+ households with vulnerable residents, recruited more than 1k volunteers and worked in partnership with more than 80+ community groups.

It also organised a campaign to provide pupils with 750 laptops to support home schooling and around £2million in grants was pumped into the borough’s economy, supporting more than 800 businesses, severely affected by the latest pandemic lockdown.

These are just a few examples of some the positive ways Telford & Wrekin Council strives to support the communities it serves.

The council’s vision of “protect, care and invest to create a better borough” also helped earn it a place amongst other national cooperatives.

Tackling the climate emergency, investment in infrastructure, education, leisure facilities and creating affordable homes are other examples of how the council is working to create a better borough.

Councillor Davies added: “Being a cooperative means we are owned and controlled by you, to meet your needs and we believe in working closely with you as well as partners and local organisations to deliver the best we can for Telford and Wrekin.”

The award has been organised by Cooperatives UK, a network of thousands of co-operatives that are owned and controlled by its members, to meet their shared needs – such as councils.

Winners will be chosen by a combination of judges’ scores and public votes.

The expert panel includes the Co‑operatives UK’s CEO and representatives from Co‑operative Bank plus other co-ops and the other shortlisted councils include Kirklees, Rochdale, Cheshire West and Chester and Torbay Council councils.

To cast your vote click here . Voting closes at midnight on June 1 2021.

A co-op is owned and controlled by its members and supports the communities it works with. To learn more about cooperatives, you can read about the values and principles that make up the foundations of all cooperatives.

Parental Questionnaire

Dear Parents and Carers,

Thank you to all those parents who came to see their child’s work last week at the book look, and to those of you who have booked a parents consultation meeting with your child’s class teacher this week.

I know that it has been over a year since we have been able to welcome parents into school and we really appreciate all your support since the start of the pandemic.  We are looking forward to the time when we can invite you back into school to celebrate with us Masses, sharing of children’s learning, launch/landing events, open mornings,  parents evenings and any other events we have in school.

We would really appreciate it if you would find time this week to complete our parental questionnaire, we give you the opportunity to complete this each time we have parents consultation meetings.  Your views are really important to us, we regularly act on feedback given to ensure that we are providing the very best we can for our school community.

Thanks in advance,

Miss Staniforth
