From the Headteacher
Year 6 SATs
Well done to all Year 6 children, they have all worked hard and did their very best this week. Mrs Dobson and I were so impressed at how calm and focussed they all were.
They have a party this afternoon to celebrate the end of the tests and wrote to local businesses who have very kindly donated sweets, drinks and other things to enjoy!
Year 6 parents are invited to join us at our assembly on Friday 9th June at 2.30 where the children will share their experiences of their residential trip.
Contacting the School in the Afternoon
It has been drawn to my attention that some parents have had difficulty in contacting the School office around 3.00pm. Please bear in mind that we only have one person in the office and that this is always a busy time of day with both visitors to Reception and other incoming calls (we do have more than one incoming line). Please leave a message so your call can be actioned..
The current lunch menu can be found on the school website here...
Notices and Letters
Transition Visit - Years 5 & 6
This is just a quick reminder that the joint St Birinus and Didcot Girls’ Transition visit is taking place at Hagbourne Primary on Tuesday 16th May at 9 am. The member of staff attending from St Birinus will be Miss Megan Froud-Davis.
All Year 5 and 6 parents are invited to attend.
Veggie Patch Volunteers Required!
We are keen to get going with our garden and need some help in digging over the patch so we can get some plants and seeds in.
It shouldn’t take long with a couple of helpers and the children can then hone their growing skills!
If you can help, please contact Jilly Corcoran or leave a message at the School Office.
Primary School Health Newsletter
We are delighted to attach the Term 5 newsletter from the Primary School Health Nurse team. As you will note there are embedded links in the newsletter, which allow parents access to a wider scope of health information. Please contact your School Health Nurse if you have any questions:
