There are lots of exciting things happening at Norbridge in the coming weeks. It promises to be a very busy period and we are all excited about the great things that are happening.
We are in the finals of the Pupil Premium Awards in London in May and we are really happy to see the work of the children, staff, governors and directors get some recognition. We will let you know the results on the day through twitter and my blog.
We have funding to extend our school by six classrooms and we are looking forward to seeing the building develop from scratch over the next twelve months. The teachers and children are really looking forward to working in their brand new classrooms. The plans for the building are wonderful and we can’t wait to see the finished building in the near future.
We will be working on a special area to remember James Allbones, who recently passed away. We will work with James’s parents to develop this area and we are going to create a very special place that his friends can go to and remember him. We will be having this work completed in the summer holiday.
I will update you with more news as we work as hard as we can to be the best we can be during the summer term.
It is not long now until we are back in school and it is looking great as the staff prepare classrooms for the arrival of the children. Some changes have taken place over the summer, including the arrival of our new classrooms. There has been a great deal of effort put in making sure they will be ready for the start of term. Here is a glimpse of the new classrooms from outside.
Our theme this year is “A year of Endeavour.” This will place responsibility on us to ensure that we all work as hard as we can to reach our full potential. This theme will be seen in everything we do in our lives, not just at school. I am looking forward to hearing your inspirational stories about what you achieve and also what you do to serve and help others.
Mr Scott deserves a mention for performing so well in his maths and English exams and we are very proud of him. If you see him in school please congratulate him as I know he will appreciate it. He has worked so hard to achieve so well in the tests.
Enjoy the rest of the holidays and make sure you are raring to go!
I am so proud of Olivia, from year 5 in our school. She started running competitively about a month ago and today represented Norbridge in a County competition. This included 65 competitors and she came 9th!!! An amazing effort and I am so proud of her… Oh and the weather made it tough too!
We just returned from our ghost walk. The children had fun and we saw no ghosts. It was very dark as we crossed the stream over the rickety bridge. We walked through the church yard and the church bells chimed. We had fun and there was nothing to be scared of.
