Class organisation 2023-2024

Please find below a table detailing the organisation of class year groups for 2024-2025

The table informs you which year group individual teachers will be teaching in next year.

In your child’s report pack which you will receive at the start of week commencing 15th July, you will be notified which specific class your child will be in.

On Tuesday 16th July between 3.30pm and 4.30pm, you will have the opportunity to “meet the teacher” and visit your child’s classroom in readiness for September.  This is an informal meeting so please come along at your convenience.  All children will have the opportunity to meet their new teacher earlier that day.

As you may have noticed Mrs Beaumont-George does not have a teaching commitment and will be replaced by Mrs Sparrow (who also job shares with Mrs Cocks in year 3) and Mrs Loveys in Reception. Instead, she is taking the post of Acting Deputy Headteacher because….

Mr Dadds is leaving.

Following his secondment in the spring term, he has now successfully secured his first Headship at Clifford Road Primary School from September 2024. We wish him every success in his new role.

As you may also have noticed, Miss Mills is leaving us in July to take up a teaching position at Chelmondiston Church of England Primary School. We wish her every success. Joining us in year 4 will be Miss Ward who has recently completed her teacher training with us.

Also leaving us at the end of this academic year are Mrs Bray and Mrs Grimsey.

We thank Mr Dadds, Miss Mills, Mrs Bray and Mrs Grimsey for their wonderful contributions to our school community.

Lost Property

Please can you start checking the lost property rails by the small hall.  Towards the end of term, we will be taking the unclaimed uniform to the charity shops or reselling in our second-hand uniform sale.  We also have a number of pairs of children’s glasses in the school office, please do pop along to check if they could be your child’s.

New National Framework for School Fixed Penalty Notices

The Department for Education are introducing a new national framework from 19 August 2024 for school fixed penalty notices, which will mean all councils have the same rules in place for when they need to consider a fine.

The flow chart below summarises the changes.
