This Week's News
w/c Monday 10th June
The sponsored Skoozathon prize draw took place on Monday morning amongst much excitement. We would like to thank all those who sponsored this event, through which you have helped us raise over £2,000 to support future curriculum enhancement weeks.
We will be visiting St Luke’s Church on Monday afternoon, where we will all participate in Collective Worship on the theme of Pentecost. This is a festival which celebrates the ‘coming of the Holy Spirit’.
Book Fair this week
On Tuesday, the Scholastic Book Fair will be returning to school and will be open every evening from Tuesday until next Monday. At this time of year, scholastic offer a fantastic ‘3 for 2’ on all of their books - a leaflet was sent home in book bags last week with more information!
Year 6 Puberty talks
We will be welcoming staff from the school nursing team into school on Thursday to lead our annual puberty talks for Year 6 children.
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’.
