The Windsor Learning Partnership
Incredibly, the term of 2017 has been and gone. Very much in focus this term has been the development of key skills that are crucial for our pupil's growth and development. These Skills of: Leadership: Organisation: Resilience: Innovation and communication- LORIC for short already-underpin the Pixel Edge and Stars extra-curricular programme. The aim is for these skills to be encouraged and grown across all aspects of school life. Excitingly this is in fact to be recognised across the Trust as key to enhancing our pupil’s educational experience. To really kick start this across all 4 schools there is a joint staff training scheduled along with an inspirational short Film highlighting the importance of the LORIC skills.
Thank you to all parents that attended the public consolation on the schools expansion recently. The designs generated positive discussion and received overriding approval and praise. Obviously focus centred on the impressive new teaching block and attached sports hall, but the expansion also included refurbished science labs and an extended dinning room. Meetings attended with Architects and representatives from the local authority now are very much focused on providing the very best learning environment possible. Samples of furnishings and fittings and talk of computer and display needs make it all very real. The timeframe is now set with building likely to start in June or July. Rest assured we will work with all parties concerned to ensure that these exciting improvements are managed both efficiently and effectively and do not impinge on the normal running of the school day. The Plans can be seen here.
Year 6 SATs
Finally, can I signpost the forthcoming Year 6 Parents SATS preparation evening on Tuesday March 7th. Following on from the English and Maths Subject meetings last term and the positive response from so many of you regarding the revision and support guides. A catch-up and more detailed look at the more difficult parts of the test will provide you all with an even better understanding of the requirements of this test and the demands placed on the children. There is however no substitute for plenty of reading and mental maths practice (times table and Roman numeral learning!). The on-line learning programmes such as MyMaths, and ReviseWise, together with this school website, are also excellent at doing this and all of our pupils have access to this at home. If you require anymore information on how to support your child in their build up to SATs you should contact their subject teachers directly.
