Head Teacher Introduction
Dear Parents and Carers
Thank you for your extra vigilance regarding safety over these last few days with the on-going road repairs by the village hall. In school we have talked to the children about staying close to you on the car park and paths to keep safe at the start and end of the school day.
Whilst we were closed on Tuesday, the staff met together and worked on one of our actions for school improvement this year – behaviour. Our aim is for children to conduct themselves well throughout the day, including at lunchtime and to focus on their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development to ensure that they are prepared to be reflective about and responsible for their actions as good citizens.
Our mission statement is that we are a Christian family who care, share and learn together and this will form the basis of our behaviour policy – if your child’s behaviour is called into question then they will be encouraged to think about which part of the mission statement went wrong and how they can make it right again.
As part of the drive to raise standards in behaviour, we are encouraging your child to take pride in their appearance by wearing the correct school uniform as this accompanies a positive attitude to learning. Please support your child by ensuring that their uniform follows the uniform policy:
|GirlsLight blue shirt (blue polo shirt for EYFS children)Astbury tie
Astbury sweatshirt / cardigan
Grey skirt or tailored trousers
Grey pinafore dress
Socks / tights (white / grey)
|BoysLight blue shirt (blue polo shirt for EYFS children)Astbury tie
Grey tailored trousers
Socks (grey / black)
White polo shirt, navy shorts, white socks and black pumps. PE kits should be kept in a named bag. Hoodies and white polo shirts for PE can be purchased from the school office. Navy jogging bottoms and trainers are also needed for outside PE.
Jewellery, hair and body embellishments
Jewellery is not suitable for wearing in school. Children are allowed to wear a watch but we recommend and inexpensive one. Children with pierced ears my only wear studs. All jewellery must be removed for PE. Hair which is long enough to be tied back must be tied back with a navy / black hair bobble. Make up, nail varnish or other body embellishments (such as fake tattoos) must not be worn.
Last week we had a two day review of our school by the Diocese of Chester. It was lovely to see that the care the staff give to the children was recognised and highlighted as a strength, alongside the relationships between staff and children. The strong sense of inclusion and the welcome that children receive at our school was also noted.
