SATs are over!

17-18: HeadteacherComments Off on SATs are over!


Both our KS1 and KS2 SATs have finished this week for another year and our children have all tried their best and completed the tests to the best of their ability. The children were all calm and have worked hard all year as have the rest of the children in school.

We had a moderation visit to ensure everything is completed as it should be which went well also. We now await the results in July!



On Wednesday we had a report from a parent that when walking home and leaving the school, a car had left the school and mounted the pavement nearly hitting the parent and child. If this happens again, I will close the car park in the morning and from 2.30pm.  The safety of all is paramount so please take care when driving close to school.


Two Year Old Provision

A reminder that from September 2018, Rack House will offer provision for 2yr olds. If you have a child of this age or who will be turning two before September, you may be eligible for 15hrs free funding for your child in our provision.

Alternatively, the cost will be £15 per morning session and £15 per afternoon session. There will be places for 12 children per session.

We can also offer wrap around care at an extra cost.

If you are interested in utilising this provision, please contact Miss Conway for further details.


Own Clothes Day

Next Friday, 25th May, will be own clothes day for the children. The children can wear their own clothes on these days for £1.00 per child up to, a maximum of £2.00 per family. This is an easy way of raising funds for the school by allowing children to wear what they like (within reason) for the day.
