Firstly, I would like to thank everyone who came to the parent consultation meetings last Monday. I hope you all found the session useful, particularly the targets set by teachers, which you can help your child with at home. I would also like to thank our Head Boy, Jamie, and Head Girl, Izzy, for attending and also to our governors who attended to mingle with parents. We intend the governors to be at every consultation evening from now on, so do have a chat with them. My thanks also to Miss Steele and Miss Hollins for their organisation of consultations for our pupils with Special Education Needs. More great baby news! Mrs McDonald has given birth to a healthy baby boy and Mr Ruddle’s wife has given birth to a little girl. We all send our congratulations to them all for their new arrivals! Last Friday, Mrs Lovatt (previously Mrs Machin) finished her time here at St Chad’s after fifteen years at our school. She has given so much to St Chad’s for which we are extremely grateful, but she has decided it is time to pursue new adventures. She will continue to support our school for visits and events and will be popping in regularly – which we are really pleased about! Finally, we have spent National Anti-Bullying Week thinking about how we can stop all forms of bullying and every child has been given a ‘Say No to Bullying’ wristband to remind them of everything they have learnt.

We are very proud, following a very successful year. In March 2014 we achieved a very GOOD Ofsted and in July 2014 we were graded OUTSTANDING in our church (SIAMS) inspection.
