Newsletter July 2019:

 

The summer holidays have finally arrived and another long school year is behind us. As we approach the end of the school year, I would like to say ‘thank you’ to you all for your support this year.

 

This year we have invited parents to a total of 42 parents session (eg. English, Maths), 17 end of term enterprise events, 12 performance events and 14 family learning events. Thank you to all parents, grandparents and wider family members who have attended these events and supported your child at home – and a special thank you to those of you who have given your time to help in school over the last year; your support is valued and always appreciated.

 

This year we have arranged 19 school visits and visitors to school to enhance the children’s learning; this is in addition to 26 sporting events which we have been invited to. Thank you to all of you for your support of these visits and visitors – they are invaluable in making the learning come to life for the children.

 

Last night we celebrated the time our Year 6 children have been with us at Warmsworth Primary School and it is with a great sense of sadness, mixed with pride, that we say goodbye to them. We wish them every success for the future. 

 

As usual over the summer holiday we will be making further improvements to the school site, including redeveloping the quad to provide an outside classroom, as well as a space for gardening.

 

We would like to congratulate our children for their superb results for 2018-2019. Thank you to parents, staff and governors for supporting the children in achieving such outstanding results.

 

Results for the end of Foundation Stage show that 86% of children achieved a Good Level of Development compared with the national result of 72%.

 

90% of our children met the expected standard in the Year One Phonics Screening Check compared with the national result of 82%.

Message from the organisers of Warmsworth Gala 2019:

What a great day was had by all on Saturday….and a huge thank you to all those who made a plate which decorated the floats, they looked amazing. We hope you came out to wave the floats on as they travelled down to the Gala field…Thank you to our King - Kristian, Queen - Lily and 3 Attendants - Holly, Ollie and Lewis who took part on the day, as well as Mr. Halstead our guest of honour, who as always, was a Sports Star! Remember the Gala is run solely by volunteers, with the money raised by donations and sponsorships. So it is great to get contributions from the Children’s Bake Sale…it really does go towards making this event happen every year!

 

Our AGM will be held later in the year, and will be your opportunity to come on board as a volunteer to help with Gala 2020. In the meantime, you can contact us via our Facebook page or e-mail us at warmsworth-gala@mail.com.

 

Pupil Questionnaires

Please see the results of our questionnaires attached to this newsletter.

 

Sports Update

This year has seen a continuation of our winning ways in sport as this half term our year 6 team have been crowned winners of both the Edlington and Warmsworth Cricket tournament and the Doncaster Cricket tournament for the second year running; the year 2 football team came 2nd in their pyramid tournament and our year 5 and 6 swimmers won the South Yorkshire Swimming Finals. I would like to express a huge thank you to all parents who have supported these sporting opportunities and to Mr Halstead and Miss Gibson for giving up their own time too.

 

School Uniform

Please make sure your child has the correct school uniform for September, as stated in the school prospectus & website (www.warmsworth.doncaster.sch.uk).

 

We ask that your child wears black footwear.  

  • Black or grey trousers, short or long (but not sportswear)
  • Black or grey skirt/pinafore dress
  • Red or pink gingham dress
  • Maroon sweatshirt or cardigan
  • White polo shirt
  • Black shoes or trainers

PE Kit

Attendance

Thank you to everyone for supporting the school to achieve our target attendance of 97%. We have been very close this year with a final attendance of 96.76 for FS2 to Year 6 and we look forward to seeing what 2019/20 brings!

 

Staff Changes

This summer we say farewell to Mrs Marsh who is one of our support staff in Foundation Two. Mrs Marsh is moving to work in the Visual Impairment Support team for the Local Authority and she will hopefully be coming to support some pupils in our school in the coming years.

 

Mr Thomson is getting married in the holidays so on behalf of all the staff, children and parents of the school, we would like to send him the best of luck and hope everything goes as planned and we look forward to seeing the photos

 

The children of Warmsworth Primary School have made me very proud in my first year of headship - not only do they do well academically, but they sing, dance, play instruments, win just about every sports tournament they enter, run the school’s councils, collect money for charity, … the list is endless, so have a good holiday, you have all earned it!

 

See you all in September (apart from our year 6 children and parents of course!)
