Good to be back

After all the excitement of Christmas and New Year celebrations it was clear that many children really enjoyed being back last week as they settled very quickly back in to school routines.  During the week we had many visits from parents considering sending their children to Bloxham Primary School when they start school in September as well as other school leaders. They commented on the excellent behaviour of children in lessons, as well as their very positive attitude to their learning.  I felt proud to be showing them around our school.

Last week we had one of the highest levels of attendance we have had this academic year. On Thursday there were over 97% of children in school; this means that there were only 10 children absent from the total of 420 children on school roll. This really is an excellent level of attendance- long may it continue.

As you may have seen a defibrillator has now been installed in school. Its location at the front of the building means that it can be used without compromising the safety of any children in school. It has been a joint venture between the school and football club. Let’s hope that this is one piece of equipment at school that never has to be used.

If it is not too late- I would like to wish you a very Happy and Peaceful New Year.
