“Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another, ‘What! You Too? I thought I was the only one.”
And whilst all of this is going on, we have also significantly stepped up the pace and pitch of each lesson your child attends. We hope they are sleeping well as they sure should be tired!
So many times in these newsletters, I ask myself: ‘Do our pupils actually do any reading, writing or arithmetic!?!’ It would be easy to look through the latest (brilliant) edition of the Harefield magazine and think ‘All that these children do is be outside: canoeing, climbing, exercising and playing on beaches’; but, trust me when I say they do MUCH more than this. Our academic provision at the school is vast and we are so proud of how the pupils have approached their learning this September into October, reaching out to achieve high standards and trying as hard as you could ask a child to try.
Attainment and Attitude to Learning grades will be with parents of Year 1-8 children, by the end of next week. These give you a good early indication into how your child is performing in all subjects.
Please look out for some information to come on our yearly Academic data from Dr Evans.
I am proud of the academic profile of this school. It does not just happen, it takes careful planning, brilliant teachers and motivated pupils to achieve this. I am super proud that in addition to this type of academic standard we also are always outside: canoeing, climbing, exercising and playing on beaches! It is a testament to those who are creative and brave in their teaching approach.
Thank you for your unending support of your brilliant children and the St Peter’s community.
