In return, we give everyone in our school as many opportunities as we can to fulfil their potential in the widest possible sense.

We’ll be making some slight adjustments to our playground gates over the coming weeks. We’d like to ask all visitors and parents to close the gate after they’ve used them. This will really help with keeping children safe whilst at school.
A couple of weeks ago, Year 5 made some lovely bat boxes with Mrs Smith. To extend the children’s learning even more, she’s asked… I wonder if there’s any chance, does anyone have a nature camera with night vision and Wi-Fi connectivity sitting in a draw somewhere they do not use? Our Year 5 are keen to film any coming and going.
We had a lovely morning in class 3 this morning learning about the definition of darkness … and the absence of light.
We tried our best with our classroom cave and it was absolutely brilliant!

Whole School bike ride. Changed date of Wednesday 20th. This is an opportunity for children to learn how to ride bikes and have a biking themed day at school, or challenge themselves to ride to Rock Park, Fremington or Bideford, and back, all heading from Tescos in Braunton. We’ve not done this for a few years and we hope it’ll be a great event as it’s always been!
For this to work well, we’d like family members to take part and help if and where they can – we really appreciate this, thank you. It is also, certainly, a ‘wear-a-helmet’ event too!
Our Summer Fair is the same week! Friday 22nd July, straight after school. FROGS are already working in the background for this – thanks everyone!
That leaves the final thing being the Leavers’ Assembly at 2pm on our last day; Tuesday 26th July.
I hope you didn’t miss the news that Jo Benfield will be moving on from Georgeham School as from September. We have Lottie Hare in the office on Mondays and Tuesdays for this half term, and will be fully recruiting for a September start. Jo’s been here for many years and will be missed, but will be coming back at times as a financial advisor for Devon.
Our front doors are open between 8.45 and 8.55 with children doing learning activities as soon as they arrive. Sadly, the ones who arrive late at 9.00 am would have missed this, and the ones who are later can even miss the introduction to the next learning task.
Please aim to arrive for 8.45am
Please do look at the school menu before you leave home in the morning. Keri is unable to adjust the menu each day and it’s important that the children know what’s on offer and are happy to make choices in the morning.
We are Ambitious.
