Once again, we are at that point in the year when we open our doors for the whole week as part of Family Learning Week. This year you can come in and see maths and English being taught across the different year groups as well as other curriculum areas such as science, music and PE.
We are including workshops in English, maths and Online safety for parents to increase their understanding of the statutory expectations required of children in different year groups.
As ever we are starting the week with a fun run. Miss Faulkes is going to plot a course around the school grounds for the children’s cross country course. Children will be running the course with any willing members of staff and parents.
Year 2 children will be starting their run on the afternoon of Monday 22nd May at 2.00pm. All of the juniors will then take part in their race at 2.30pm. The infants are welcome to stay and cheer the junior runners on.
Family Learning Week is open to all parents/carers and grandparents. You can come in to school to watch any lesson, your child does not need to be in the lesson you are watching. Please remember to sign in when you arrive and sign out when you leave. I would appreciate it if you could fill in an evaluation slip before you leave so we know what we can improve on next time.
The timetable for the week has been sent out with this letter but it will be on the school website so you can plan activities to come in to see.
We hope that you enjoy it as much as we do,
Thank you for your continuing support

We have been given an opportunity to take Everest & Himalayas to The Blue School for a Sports Festival on Wednesday 17th January 2018. The Festival starts at 1.35 pm and finishes at 3 pm. We will be leaving St Cuthbert’s at 1.15 pm and will be back at St Cuthbert’s before 3.20 pm. Please make sure your child brings their PE kit and a drink. We also need parents to walk to and from The Blue School please speak to your child's class teacher if you are able to help.
To continue the success of the WCLP Sports Festivals this year will see some of The Blue School Yr13 activity leaders filmed during their activity/leadership session. This will carried out in order to evaluate the quality of the students’ sessions and leadership to ensure that every student visiting The Blue School and its sports festivals is given the most memorable experience. It will also have added benefits for the sixth form students themselves as they will be able to use the footage as evidence for a vital assignment that must be completed as part of their Level 3 BTEC Sport Diploma
The footage will be stored on The Blue School system accessed only by Head of Sport, and their internal verifier and possible an external verifier should any students be called by the exam board.
If you do not wish your child to be filmed please speak to your child’s class teacher.
