Another busy term!

I can’t believe we are at the end of another busy term! This term has been full of fun, full of challenge and also full of optimism as we start to prepare for the new school year in September.  We had our BIG lunch to commemorate the Queen’s 90th Birthday, our sponsored walk around Coton Woods, some of the children have had some specialist cricket coaching courtesy of Lullington Cricket Club and of course – inviting grandparents into school to have lunch with our children.

Half full, not half empty!

There are times, when as Headteacher of Coton school, I am immensely proud of everything that our children go on to achieve but this week even more so! There has been so much in the media about how difficult the Year 6 SATS exams were with all the recent changes to assessment and the curriculum; the standard now expected from 11 years olds is incredibly high!  However, each and every one of our Year 6 children gave their very best this week, without a whimper, without the slightest moan and without any excuses – they all had a real go!  A valiant effort!  Click here to continue reading… “Half full, not half empty!”

Dare to go where you have never gone before!

I would like to start this week’s blog by sending my congratulations to Leicester City Football Club after they won their very first Premier League title on Monday evening against all the odds! It has been an amazing season for them and I think we can all take valuable lessons from their success. Click here to continue reading… “Dare to go where you have never gone before!”

Great to be back!

Welcome Back!

I hope you all had a lovely Easter break and you feel refreshed for the new term ahead. Last term was a busy one but we achieved so much in such a short space of time.  On a personal note, this term will be especially busy for me as I prepare to get married in the summer. July 29th is fast approaching! I hope we get some good weather! The summer term is always full of fun with Sports Day, the Summer Fair, new intake in addition to the usual end of year celebrations.

What a busy term! Moving on, moving up!

It is with great pleasure that I post my first ever Headteacher blog as part of our new website. Look out for this each week as I will take the time to celebrate what has been achieved in school over the week and your child may get a ‘special mention’ from me. I hope you will find it a useful way of keeping up to date with all that is happening in school. Communication can always be improved and I sincerely hope that this goes a long way to help!
