Helping your child at home

Thank you to all the families who attended parents’ evening this week. There was 100% turn out so every teacher has now met all of you over the course of this week. These meetings are hugely valuable for your child, and for us, in understanding them better and we appreciate your time.
Teachers gave out a number of resources on the night and the English ones are attached below in case you would like another copy

Parent Questionnaire

We will be asking all of our families to complete a questionnaire during this week’s parents’ evenings about how they feel about the school and whether they are happy with the service that we provide to all of our stakeholders. Please look out for our prefects and school councillors in the main reception area who will have copies of the questionnaire for you to fill in. We really value your feedback so that we can continue to improve the school.

Come and see our new website

We are officially launching our new website this week and we would like to invite parents to come to the ICT room on Tuesday and Wednesday night where our prefects will be around to show you all the features of the site, including our new class pages.

Once again we would like to thank everyone who has given their time and energy to make this all work and we hope you are enjoying the new style calendar and news updates.

London Youth Conference

On Tuesday 11th October, eight members of the School Council visited the Olympic Park for the London Youth Conference. Inspirational speakers shared their stories on how they got their voices heard from a young age and the projects that they have set up around the world. 

 In future School Council meetings, we will be discussing how Bevington can set up local community projects using ideas from the conference.

Visit to the Pepper Pot Day Centre

As you know this month to celebrate Harvest Festival, Bevington pupils enjoyed a special Harvest assembly by Magnolia Class and collected lots and lots of ‘food bank’ items to donate. Magnolia class pupils really enjoyed visiting and meeting members of the Pepper Pot Day Centre to whom they donated their ‘Harvest’ food collection. On their visit to the Pepper Pot Day Centre pupils had fun playing dominoes, chatting to local resident members and sharing Harvest Festival songs together with an impromptu sing along.

 

Romans invade Bevington !

It was standing room only at Sequoia class assembly on Thursday as they performed for their parents and the whole school. They have been learning about the Romans this term and were able to show everyone how and where they lived and the impact they made on history. All the children in the class did an amazing job of acting as they really brought the Romans to life. The parents all commented as they left on how much they enjoyed the show. It was great to see so many there supporting the children.

PTFA

Thank you to all those who attended the meeting yesterday, minutes to follow. It is still not too late to join and support the school through organising events for children and families and fundraising. Lots of good ideas were generated yesterday that will benefit the children and continue to strengthen our community. The PTFA is open to all parents and carers and is a great place to meet and become part of an essential team in the school. If you missed yesterday’s meeting please see Mr Smith for further details of how you can be involved.
