Making our world a better place

May 2022

As we enter the summer term, I would like to say good luck to all of our children who will be undertaking statutory assessments this month. Our Y6 and Y2 children will be sitting the end of key stage SATs assessments in May and I know that they have been working really hard to prepare for these tests.

Huge congratulations to our Y4 Tag Rugby team who came first in the Ilkley Grammar Wharfe Valley Sports League tournament. Our team won every game and their team spirit and positive attitudes have made us extremely proud.

This month we welcome Miss Hammans, our new teacher in Acorn class and Mrs Drye, our new Teaching Assistant in Key Stage 1, to our staff team.

Thank you to everyone who organised, helped with and attended our FoMPS Easter fundraising event. The afternoon went really well and the weather managed to stay fine most of the time! I have signed us up to take part in Race for Life this term. We will all be running to raise money for Cancer Research in June. More details will follow.

As a school we have a different value to learn about and demonstrate each month. This month, our value is Care and understanding. This will help the children to learn about:

If you have anything that you need to ask me about or let me know about, please email the school office, come to see me or give me a call and I will get back to you.
