I hope that you and your family had a wonderful summer. As a staff we have all enjoyed welcoming the children back to school today and hearing about their holidays, especially their response to the Olympics. The day started with a welcome back assembly that focused on the Olympics and how we could learn from our gold medal winning athletes and teams. The children had some thoughtful ideas including; believe in yourself, be prepared, always try your best, make sure you come to school every day, be on time, listen to your coach/teacher, persevere, work together, be respectful. Cathedral School will be building on the legacy of the Olympics this year not only through PE provision but by continuing to explore the Olympic values.
This summer also saw the birth of two Cathedral School babies; Amy Morrow gave birth to Theo James and Jenny Bailey gave birth to Florence Katie, we are all thrilled for them and look forward to a visit soon. Charlotte Palmer’s baby is due late this month.
The new outside area by the Key Stage 1 and Reception classrooms has been completed, giving these classes increased opportunities for outside learning. The response from the children has been fantastic, especially as they help to design it!
Thank you for the overwhelmingly positive response to the parental questionnaire as the end of last term. There are 115 families at school, 100 of which responded to the questionnaire. 100% of parents said they would recommend Cathedral School to other parents.This is something we are very proud of. We were also grateful for the constructive feedback you gave us on ways to improve. This year as a school we will continue to work with parents and act on feedback where appropriate.
Once again, I wish you all a wonderful start to the new term and look forward to speaking to you soon,
