This Week's News
w/c Monday 21st January
Reception class drop-in
Our first parent drop-in of the term for Reception will be taking place on Tuesday morning at 9.00am. Please make your way to main office to sign in after you have dropped your child off if you are joining us for this event.
Go East Morton!
After school on Tuesday, a team of Upper KS2 children will be taking part in a Sportshall Athletics competition at Beckfoot – Go East Morton!
We will be welcoming Marion Hetherington from the charity ‘Give a child hope’ into school on Thursday afternoon to talk to all of our children. The charity supports a school in Matugga, Uganda and we have now been working with them for nearly five years. Our children particularly enjoy having the opportunity to meet Bishop Ivan when he visits our school each year to talk about the impact that our fundraising has had on the local community.
Fabulous Ofsted outcome
We are delighted with the results of our most recent Ofsted monitoring visit. The inspector has described our school not only as a good school, but an improving school, in which parents have great confidence and where pupils thrive. You can download the full report below.
School judged Oustanding by SIAMS
East Morton CE Primary School received its SIAMS (Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools) in February 2017. The inspector, Mr Nigel Castledine, spent a whole day in school and during his visit, he met with a number of children, observed lessons, met with staff, met with representatives of the governing body, observed Collective Worship, met with parents and finally met with Reverend Mike Cansdale and John Froud.
As you will see from the report (below), the school was graded as good at its last inspection in 2012 and we are delighted that Mr Castledine judged our school to be outstanding upon the completion of his recent visit. He was particularly impressed with our school’s ‘broad, balanced and creative curriculum’, which he felt provides ‘time for reflection, awe and wonder, and the development of pupils’ higher order thinking skills in spiritual experiences that challenge and inspire’.
