Spring 2

World Book Day and London! - 6th March 2020

Yet another busy week in Bewsey and once again I was blown away with some of the amazing World Book Day costumes (staff and children!) From cats in hats, to gingerbread man and wizards, it was truly a day full of magic!

I loved to hear how some of the older children read to the younger ones and shared their love of reading. The older children told me how much they enjoyed sharing the different stories - looks like we might have some natural teachers there!

Whilst our oldest children missed out on dressing up as their favourite book character, they received a fantastic experience themselves and travelled to one of my favourite places - London! Wow!

I've not had a chance to chat to the Yr 6s yet but teachers tell me that their behaviour was a credit to you, themselves and the school and they had a brilliant time! I can't wait to catch up with them on Wednesday and see what they enjoyed most.

Looks like a rain-free weekend, so have a nice rest and i'll see you all next week. Look out for me on the playground before school on Wednesday.

Welcome Back! Spring it upon us!

In Autumn term, governors were busy in and around school. Sometimes this was for our formal governor meetings – we had budget setting and curriculum meetings last half term – sometimes it is to visit staff and classrooms or to talk to parents before the school day on the playground.

Spring Term 1

Valentine's Bake Off! - 14th Feb 2020

Did you join in with the Valentines Bake Off?

I was very impressed with all the cakes and thought the school council has a difficult job choosing the winners! Well done to everyone who took part and congratulations to the winners! 

It's so lovely to see children using the skills they learnt in CLASP and working with adults at home to join in with school competitions!

Next time, I think we should do a 'best tasting' cake - I'm happy to judge that one (chocolate is my favourite)!

Have a lovely and restful half term and i'll see you when we get back! Look out for me on the playground and around school.

Meeting with the PE champions! - 

6th Feb 2020

Governors value the opinion of our whole school community and we particularly enjoy listening to our pupils.

The PE champions told us last week that you ’can’t get any better than Bewsey’ – how fantastic is that! They enjoy the opportunities to play sport and learn new skills during and after school. The year 4 children had the opportunity to go to Winmarleigh too – they had a wonderful time. I spoke to some of them (and their parents) before they left. They were so excited and their parents were appreciative of the opportunities that Bewsey offers our children.

Autumn Term

It’s been yet another busy term for the whole school community and I know that everyone is looking forward to a well-earned rest.

We have a great deal to be thankful for at Bewsey Lodge School and I am sure that you would like to join me and all the Governors in thanking Mrs Wright and all the staff for their continued hard work and commitment to the children. Regardless of the role they play, our dedicated team put so much into making our school what it is and for providing the very best education and support for every child.

Our wonderful children have worked so hard work throughout this term and it has been a great privilege for governors and staff to watch the children discovering new topics and championing their curriculum specialities. I hope that each child feels very proud of what they have achieved.

The members of the Governing Body have also had a busy autumn term, attending a Governor Away day to review and ratify school policies and to finalise the School Development Plan. We have had an opportunity to visit school, monitor the curriculum and review school data.

Governors had an opportunity to chat with many of you at parents evening and we received many positive comments. Thank you to those of you that stopped to chat to us and those that recorded comments on OFSTED’s Parent View website. 100% of parents & carers that completed a questionnaire would recommend our school to others. I can’t think of a better way to end our Autumn term.

Finally, a special ‘thank you’ to you, our supportive parents and carers. We are lucky to have such a richly diverse community, and we continue to strengthen the school’s partnership with you all. By working together, we have helped to achieve the best outcomes for our children and ensure that they enjoy their time at Bewsey Lodge.

Children have a way of making Christmas come alive for us all and I enjoyed seeing the children’s performances this week. They were a wonderful opportunity to remind us all of the true meaning of Christmas.

On behalf of the Governing Body, may I wish you all a very

“Happy Christmas

and a

Peaceful New Year”

Mrs Kendal and all the governors :)
