From Mr Bullard ...

30th January 2015

You will be receiving your child’s reports today. The report’s focus is on the core areas of Maths, Literacy and Science and should form the basis for your meetings with your child’s teachers. There will be the usual end of year report card in the summer term. There is a reply slip for you to confirm receipt of the report and an opportunity for you to add any comments. If for some reason you haven’t made an appointment to see your child’s teacher can I implore you to do so.

Hope 4 Harmonie Donations

We are delighted to confirm you donated an amazing £419.56 to the Hope 4 Harmonie appeal on our Mufti Day on Friday 14th November!  

This does not include all the donations made for pink ribbons as they went into a separate pot, so the true figure donated will be higher.  Thank you for your generosity, we know Harmonie-Rose’s family will be very grateful indeed.

Ofsted Inspection Report - Combe Down CEVC Primary is a good school

We were inspected in September 2013. We were graded good in all categories which, under the current inspection frameworks that have got tougher and tougher, is a very pleasing judgement.

Of course there are always areas in which to improve and we have taken note of the two points highlighted as we strive to do even better.

The school has come a long way in the last three years and the staff and governors have worked very hard indeed. Thank you to all the staff and governors for all their hard work and for your support as parents.

Tallest Sunflower Competition!

Susannah N in Year 2 has grown the tallest sunflower in an English school! 

We entered the schools competition run by Sutton Seeds and our tallest sunflower grew to 315cm; we have won £160 (roughly £1 for every 2cm) for Gardening Club funds as well as some gift vouchers, bulbs and seeds. 

Well done indeed to Susannah!

Parking near school

We generally have good relations with our neighbours around the school. Parking is usually the area of friction and we have been contacted by a couple of local residents about inappropriate parking recently.

Could you please ensure that if you have to drive to school and park close by that you do not block residents drives or the narrow roads around school and, in particular, steer clear of the zig-zag markings by both entrances. Thank you for your consideration.
