We have had lots of visitors to our school this week. It’s been a lovely excuse to show off a bit! And for the children to demonstrate how amazing they are and how great their work is.
Well done to our girls in Key Stage 2 who took part in a swimming challenge at the weekend. They were raising money for charity and so far have raised over £700. We are very proud of you all.
We have welcomed lots of new children to the school. We know that you and all of your families will be very happy here.
Welcome to Ryan, Demi, Shaun, Tino and Munashe.
On Monday some of our Year 1 parents joined us in school for a Family Learning session. Thank you to those that came- the feedback has been really positive.
Mr Jackson and Mr Harris have been busy planning for our Year 6 games. Can you believe it’s that time of year again? Our Year 6 children and staff will be heading over to Aylesbury to compete with other local primary schools on May 24th. Good luck everyone.
We are also thinking of all of our children who have SATs over the next 2 weeks. We will keep these as low key as possible and as stress free as possible. We would like to reiterate that all of our children are wonderful and that SATs do not measure what we know about the children. We know that they are kind, creative, compassionate and beautifully mannered. All of the important things that matter as we go through life! We know that all of our children try their best and that’s what counts.
Please remember with the ever changing weather to provide a water bottle, sun hat and coat for your child every day.
We have 2 events coming up for Year 5 and Year 6 parents about the residential to the Isle of Wight. The meetings are on 24th May and will be led by Mr Sandalls. Please look out for more information.
Please can we also remind Year 3 and 4 parents that on Thursday 10th May we are holding our Viking Day in school! Letters have already been sent home about the day but it would be great to see as many Year 3 and 4 children dressed in Viking costumes as possible! Please could the children also bring in a cereal box and cardboard juice carton by Wednesday 9th May ready for the activities on the day.
And last but not least we have some brilliant news..
A message from Mrs Angela Kent, Chair of the Local Governing Body: We are pleased to announce that Governors and Trustees have now completed the interview process for our new Deputy Headteacher. Following the interviews, we have appointed Mrs Amy Howlett to the post, with immediate effect. Mrs Howlett was previously the Assistant Headteacher and she has stepped up to take on the role of Interim Deputy Headteacher this year. We are delighted with how well she has performed in this role, leading on developing our creative curriculum and supporting Mrs Baughan in embedding the improvements that are making such a difference at Princes Risborough Primary School. We know that strong and stable leadership is a key factor for success in our journey to outstanding, and for the best outcomes for your children.
We wish you all a lovely long bank holiday weekend and will see you all on Tuesday.
