Mass of St Peter and St Paul

Today we enjoyed the mass of St Peter and St Paul. The prayers and singing were fantastic. Father Joy also told the children that a new priest will be taking over at the next mass. Father Paul will be arriving and Monday and we look forward to welcoming him to our parish community.

Festival of Nature

This morning, Y4J and Y5P went down to Bristol Harbourside to take part in lots of different activities as part of this year's Festival of Nature.  There was everything from thinking about how to make our local area more environmentally friendly, how fast our heart beats during exercise, how wildlife photographers film animals in the dark, to name just three. Everyone enjoyed themselves and the rain held off. Here are some photos of a few of the activities on offer.  The Festival is open to everyone all over this weekend.

Letter from Ofsted Inspector

Dear Pupils
Thank you for the welcome that we received when we visited your school recently. It was lovely to meet you all and find out about your good school.

You told us, both in person and through your questionnaires, how much you enjoy school because the teachers are kind and you have lots of friends. We are pleased to see that you attend very regularly to make the most of your learning. You also told us that you feel safe and secure in school and your parents and carers agree. It is good to know that the adults in school look after you so well.

We were very impressed with your good behaviour around the school, both in lessons and in the playground. We enjoyed watching you learning and playing together so well. We know that your school is very proud of you all.

We are particularly pleased with the progress you are all making in your reading and writing. We have asked your school leaders and teachers to make sure that you all make just as much progress in mathematics, whether you find it easy or difficult. You can help by politely telling your teacher if you need any help or want an extra challenge. We have also asked that you have more opportunities to practise your mathematical skills in other subjects so that you can see how useful they are.

We have asked your school leaders to check more carefully that you are all learning well in every lesson. Your parents and carers told us that they are very pleased with the school. We have asked the school leaders to encourage them to find out more about your learning so that they can help you too.

Thank you again for looking after us so well. We wish you all the very best for the future.

Yours sincerely

David Shears
Lead inspector
