Apologies for the late circulation of this weekly bulletin but as I am sure you are aware, we had a very busy week with our Ofsted inspection taking place. Thank you to all parents who completed the parent view questionnaire for our inspection. The team were impressed with the number of responses that we had. The data (that you can view on line) summarised that 95% of parents agreed or strongly agreed that their child makes good progress here at The Hayes. Thank you for your on-going support. We are also very proud of your children who were very articulate and demonstrated positive behaviour and attitudes to learning (as they always do). Unfortunately, the final report has not yet been shared with the school and we are therefore unable to share with you their judgements so please do not ask us to do so. We hope that we will be able to distribute this to you before Christmas.
On Wednesday at 9:15 we are hosting one of our coffee mornings with our Parent Support Advisors (PSAs). Please do come along to meet other parents or have a chat with our PSAs regarding any issues to do with school life!
On Thursday our year 5 and 6 children will be attending the CSMA carol concert at The Fairfield Halls. Please ensure you have signed and returned the permission slip or we will be unable to take your child. May we also remind you that whilst the children will be back in school for lunchtime they have been asked to bring a packed lunch just in case the concert over runs or there are any delays with the coach. If your child is eligible for free school meals and you would like us to provide a packed lunch for them please let us know by Wednesday morning at the latest.
On Thursday the year 4 children are in for a real treat with the ‘Rock Man’ visiting the school to lead a fun-packed day and equally our year 3 children on Friday will be in for a treat when the ‘Roman man’ comes in to take them back to Roman times! We are sure all children in these year groups will have an excellent day!
Good luck to our football team who are playing in an away match against Atwood on Thursday. Fingers crossed for a win!
Saturday is our excellent school Christmas Fair from 12-3pm. The PTA have worked extremely hard to organise this event so please do come along and support Mrs Doble and her wonderful team…you could even win an iPod touch in the raffle!
