We are having a fantastic Spring term at QE and the children are busy learning about their new topics!
Our first week back at school included a visit from Ofsted for a two day inspection. We were very relieved that the inspection came as it was over 5 years since our last one. We were graded as Good overall by Ofsted but Behaviour and Safety was graded as Outstanding. The staff and children have worked incredibly hard at QE over the last two years and the Good grading was a very just reward for their efforts.
The Spring term is always busy in school and the Year 6 children will begin to revise for their SATs after half term. The rest of the school are busy studying new topics. Year 3 are learning about Africa, Year 4 are studying the Victorians, Year 5 have immersed themselves in Britain since 1930 and Year 6 are studying Rivers. We have a number of different trips coming up this term as well with Year 3 going on a day trip to Marwell Zoo, Year 4 will be visiting Ironbridge for their yearly residential and Year 5 will be spending a night on HMS Belfast as part of their Britain since the 1930s topic.
We have also continued with our on-going maintenance programme and during half term we built a privacy fence around the swimming pool as well as replacing all of the external classroom doors. We will continue to improve the school site during the rest of the Spring term.
We have also updated the website to include more dates and information so please take a minute to review it again. We have recently published our Pupil Premium data and our SATs result on the Pupil Progress page.
Our website is packed with really useful information so please take some time to look at the things we do. There are lots of photographs in our gallery which highlight many of the special events we have over the year.
We have set up a dedicated e-mail address to take your feedback and as we have said would really value your suggestions.
The e-mail address is: firstname.lastname@example.org, or please come and speak to me, your class teacher or Mrs Heslop in the office.
We hope you enjoy our website and learn a little bit more about our fantastic school!
