Half term break…

A school break, but there's always something happening to keep it all maintained and looking ship shape. I had a quick maintenance visit today with my handy little helpers. A little bit of fun may have been had on the new "Crinkle Crags" Climber, but we managed to power wash the gazebo ready for a coat or two of something, [...]

New and shiny things!!

It's so lovely when the sun's out and the children get to enjoy our outside environment fully. I think we've blogged a photo of the New Crinkle Crags Climber?  The photo that above shows last year's Yr6 who managed to get a good two weeks' worth of playing on it before they left us for the summer.  The Climber replaces [...]

Getting ready for Monday…

link to our return leaflet here.   Getting Ready for Monday Dear Parents and Carers, I do hope you’ve all had a lovely summer, have enjoyed your stay-cation and haven’t been too annoyed by the huge amount of traffic that we’ve all seen and experienced!   My family and I ran away from the traffic and beaches and headed inland to explore [...]

Yr6 Leavers’ Assembly…!

I wasn't going to do a Facebook LIVE assembly... and it wouldn't have been a good enough job to have recorded it live... so I've created our Leaver's Assembly video before the event and posted it to YouTube.  It always plays funny in the blog (not quite fitting on the page) so do click in the bottom right hand corner [...]

Almost Final Newsletter…

Same newsletter as Thursday, but we heard there was a flux of them going to parents' spam folders, so this is a second attempt... Hi, I thought I'd give you an update on what’s happening in school at the moment, the things taking place over the summer and also a headline on some changes for September.  My video explains it [...]

Update… and survey No.2…

By now, most of you will have heard the latest updates from the UK Government regarding primary school provision for the final weeks of the summer term.  In case you missed it, here is the key extract from the statement made by Gavin Williamson, Secretary of State for Education: “We continue to follow the best scientific advice and believe that [...]

Newberry Road Footpath Project…

Crowd Funding Site Goes Live Today: https://communityfund.calor.co.uk/newberry-road-footpath-georgeham-1 (If you do nothing else, please “Like” it!) Hopefully you are aware that for the last two years one of our Governors, David Morton, has been helping progress a scheme proposed by another of our parents living on Longland Lane to construct a footpath along the edge of the Georgeham Village playing fields so [...]

It’s started…!

The first thing that needs to happen when you're installing a playground, is to bring down the existing one! To keep the cost down, I was in again on Saturday with Governor and Rector Mike Newbon, chainsaw-wielding Martin Larrington from St. George's House and my eldest son, Morgan, for some muscles, lugging it all to the Nature Area to be [...]

This week’s update… AND SURVEY PLEASE>

Dear parent / Guardian We hope that you and your families are keeping well through these difficult times. Since my last blog, I have been working through the government guidance relating to the possible partial reopening of schools from 1st June.  The guidance is still unfolding and we are working extremely hard to consider all the questions it presents and trying [...]

Prime Minister’s address…

Dear Parents and Carers, I write this, following the Prime Minister’s address to the nation about our country’s next steps and action plan. He said, that as part of Step Two, which would happen  after half term (June 1st) at the earliest, Primary pupils may return in stages starting with Reception, Year One and Year 6 pupils. I, like you, [...]
