Parent View - Give Ofsted your view on your child's school

Issue 21, Brighstone Buzz, 28th February, 2020

Welcome back after the half term. I hope that everyone had a fun and restful break, despite the strong winds and rain.

This week sees the start of Lent, a very important period in the Christian calendar. However, as we all know, a special day takes place before Lent begins – Shrove Tuesday, otherwise known as Pancake Day! During CW on Tuesday morning the whole school gathered on the playground to take part in pancake relay races in their hive teams. The children showed great teamwork, encouraging their teammates to keep going, and helping them out when needed, amongst lots of cheering and celebrating. Well done to everyone. I think the seagulls and other birds enjoyed the aftermath – they had a very tasty breakfast with all the bits of pancakes left on the playground!

Following Shrove Tuesday, we had an Ash Wednesday service in church, led by Reverend Linda Porter and Reverend Linda Bushell. Children and adults chose to receive a blessing or an ash cross on our foreheads, and we all learnt about why this happens, and the importance of this Christian event leading up to Easter. Thank you to Linda and Linda for an interesting, thoughtful and fun service.

Next week brings World Book Day on Thursday 5th March. Our chosen theme is ‘Stories From Around The World’, linked to the fact that our class names are different countries this year, and throughout the day the children will be in their hive teams and class groups taking part in a range of activities. Once again, there will be the opportunity to dress up as a book character for the day, although this doesn’t need to link to the theme. Part of the morning will also include the opportunity for children to listen to chosen stories read by different members of staff, as well as taking part in quiz questions that will be placed in different locations around the school. Can you spot them all?!

I hope that everyone has a fantastic weekend, Mrs Lennon

Parent Survey – Feedback

“Brighstone School is an excellent school. Very happy with the progress my child is making”

“My child has come on in leaps and bounds and has massively surprised me. I am very happy.”

Thanks to all parents who took part in our recent Parent Questionnaire. We are proud to report that 100% of parents who responded said that their child is happy and feels safe at our school. The responses this year also show an overall improvement in the school’s performance in meeting particular pupils’ needs, supporting learning, receiving information about progress and dealing with bullying – and it was great to see that you feel we are good at keeping you well informed.

Our thanks to all parents who completed the questionnaire.
