Homefield family excels again!
The end of this week may beckon the half-term and Bank Holiday, but our thoughts and prayers remain with those affected by the tragic incident in Manchester on Monday. The widespread media coverage enabled our Years 5 and 6 classes to have a responsible discussion about it all and our prayers this week were dedicated to those, who had lost their lives.
Despite the sombre beginnings to the week, today has really resonated the impact that can be had when we all pull together with our Christian spirit and give something to those who may not be as fortunate as us. The donations of food for the food kitchen have been amazing and on their behalf we thank you sincerely.
Our Governors were impressed by the level of pupil behaviour, particularly the strong manners and respectful nature displayed when they interacted with each other and with the Governors themselves. They were also pleased with the detail given to them by staff regarding school subjects and the evidence of learning in these areas.
Thanks go to the parents and pupils for filling out the safety surveys and returning them. We will collate the results and use them to improve our safeguarding measures. Initial evidence shows that the majority of pupils and parents believe the school is a safe place and that their children are very happy here at Homefield. I would like to repeat that we are always here to listen to concerns, however we cannot try and resolve matters if we are not aware of them. My staff team and I all have pupil safety and well-being at the forefront of our minds and will go above and beyond to ensure this remains our highest priority.
I hope you all have a lovely half-term break.
