Year 4 Parent/Carer meeting on Thursday
In preparation for our annual Year 5 residential visit to Ingleborough Hall in September, Year 4 parents are invited to attend in information meeting with Mrs Dewhirst on Thursday evening at 6.00pm.
On Thursday evening at 6.30pm, members of the school nursing team will be delivering an E-safety awareness training session in school. This session is suitable for adults only and will last approximately 30 minutes. If you have to bring your child with you, Mrs Petts will supervise them in a separate classroom. We are aware that a number of our KS2 parents do have concerns around their children’s e-safety, so we would like to encourage you to attend this session if you can.
Rugby Festival - Go East Morton!
On Thursday after school, three teams of Year 5 & 6 children will be taking part in a Rugby festival at Baildon Rugby Club—Go East Morton!
New Clubs list for the Summer term
School clubs will start again next week, details of which can be found on the attached clubs list. Please make sure you book the clubs via ParentPay before your child attends.
Fabulous Ofsted outcome
We are delighted with the results of our 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) on Friday 10th February. 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’.
