Head Teachers Message Spring 2020
Dear Parent / Carer
Happy New Year (if a little belated!). I hope you all had a lovely festive season.
The children have already settled well to school life and are working hard.
We have welcomed a number of new pupils this term into our school family.
As you will know last year was a very successful one and we managed to gain a 'Good' in our OFSTED inspection in the Summer Term. We are continuing to build on this as we develop our curriculum and focus on the love and learning of reading.
We would encourage parents to get involved in your child's learning. There will be many events and workshops that parents can attend throughout the year.
If you have any suggestions or thoughts about what you would like included then please let us know.
You can contact via the office, letter or email. As always it is a pleasure and a priviledge to work with your children.
I wish every family all the very best for 2020.
Head Teachers Message - Autumn 2019
I can hardly believe it is nearly half term!
Such a lot of exciting things have happened in school. Last Friday we had a visit from the mayor of Broxbourne. He met all the children in an assembly, visited each class and spoke to the newly elected School Council. He was well impressed with the school and the questions the pupils asked. The children enjoyed meeting him and it was a lovely end to our democracy week.
Dear Parent / Carer
Well what a year its' been!
Not only have we achieved a "GOOD" OFSTED grade but today I was informed that we received a Gold award for school games.
I am immensely proud of all the Four Swannes staff. Together we work as a team to provide all the children with positive learning experience. It was most gratifying that the OFSTED inspectors acknowledged staff are proud to work at the school. Also that pupils are well prepared for life in modern Britain. That the quality of relationships between staff and pupils is strong. Pupils are polite, well mannered and welcoming. This coupled with their academic achievements should help them in their life choices.
There have been many highlights over the academic year. Firstly in September we welcomed a new deputy Mr Alan Moore. He has been a great addition to the school and I know he has enjoyed his year.
The children have had a wide range of exciting activities throughout the year (you will find many examples on the pages of this website!). This will continue and I look forward to the opportunities 2019-2020 will bring.
Thank you to all staff, parents / carers and pupils for making this one (if not the) most successful year in Four Swannes history.
Have a fantastic summer everyone.
Mrs J Jones
PS: Parents / carers we would love to see more of you at our workshops. Please suggest anything you think would be usefulat the school office.
Head Teacher Message
As you will be aware we have had an OFSTED Inspection this week. The report should reach the school in a few weeks time and all parents/carers will receive a copy.
Whatever the judgements I am very pleased with the way the children conducted themselves during the process and thank the parents/carers that had an opportunity to talk to the inspectors.
I would also like to thank all staff for their hard work during this time. They performed to their usual high standard.
Mrs Pat's bacon and sausage sandwiches went down well too!
A Word From The Head Teacher - May 21st
This term seems to be going so fast!
Well done to all those pupils that took SATS tests last week. The children worked really hard to achieve their personal best. I am confident that they will all have done very well.
This week is a busy one. Today (Tuesday) is RE Day where the children are being encouraged to be tolerant of other faiths and increase their knowledge of other belief systems.
The children are also producing goods to sell at our annual World Market Day.
I look forward to seeing you there on Thursday 23rd May at 2PM.
A Word From The Head Teacher
I hope parents will agree with me that it has been a lovely Spring Term. The children have produced some excellent work. They are really enjoying their learning which can be witnessed in their books and class assemblies.
I wish all parents/carers a wonderful Easter holiday and look forward to welcoming the children back on Tuesday 23rd April to start the Summer Term, wherein many exciting days and activities are planned.
Word from the Head Teacher
It has been lovely to see many parents at consultation evenings this week.
We are currently reviewing our homework policy and would welcome any suggestions.
Parents / carers may be aware that we recently held a ' Take One Book' week. The children had a lovely week and produced some excellent work. I had great fun putting up the giraffe.
Pupils butterfly decorations go on display.
Following our school Art Day here are some pictures of the Head Teacher creating the display of the childrens decorated butterflies in the school hall.
