Dear Parents and Carers,

The children in our three schools and nurseries have made a great start back after half term and are already   enjoying the activities busy term ahead. The snow days were an unexpected event and I would like to thank you for your patience in this difficult circumstance. Safety of the children and staff informs our decision to close the school. Thank you to all who helped to shovel snow, clear pathways and dig out cars on our school sites!

The Year 5 pupils and staff have been enjoying taking part in the rehearsals for Macbeth, which will be performed this Friday at 2.15pm in the hall. They have learned so much through this project about being part of a company and working together to create their own version of Shakespeare’s play. Well done to all of our children and teachers involved – we can’t wait for the performance!

Our sporting teams have been competing locally in a variety of competitions and as ever, have been excellent ambassadors for the school. The children have worked hard together to train and do their best on the day, showing determination and commitment. They have represented the school with such pride. Congratulations to all those that participated in these events and thank you to all the parents that support the children at these  fixtures – it’s great to see you there!

Year 3 have enjoyed a Victorian Day and learned about what it was like in a Victorian School. Mrs Nottrodt and Mrs Davies made excellent Victorian teachers! As part of their topic, they have also been visited by a relative of Dr. Thomas Barnardo, who stood up for the most vulnerable children in society opening the first home for  children in 1867. Today, the charity ‘Barnardos’ continues to fight for the UK’s most vulnerable children to realise Dr. Barnardo’s dream of a world where no child is turned away.

We have welcomed a number of new families to Cordwalles this term and our pupil numbers continue to  increase. We would like to offer these families a very warm welcome. As a school we are always striving to improve communication with our parents and with this in mind, please do check our website, our Twitter page @Cordwalles1 and Facebook page that we share with the Infant schools, Pine Ridge, Lorraine and Cordwalles Schools. We will continue to send out reminders via Parentmail and text so that parents are kept up to date on the activities that the children will be involved in, or any last minute changes. To ensure that you receive these reminders, parents are required to sign up to Parentmail. If you experiencing any difficulties or require your logon details, then please do not hesitate to contact the school office, who will be happy to help.

I would like to take this opportunity to remind you of the many resources available to help you keep you child safe online. The NSPCC website has some excellent ideas for parents and carers for how you can keep children safe and how to talk to your child about dangers of the digital world. Please follow the link below:

It was great to see so many of you at the recent Parent Consultation evenings; thank you to Chestnut parents for coming this week!

Have a lovely weekend,



Mrs Claire-Louise West
