RRSA and School Council have been working hard to produce their own School Improvement Plan and here it is:
Middleton Primary and Nursery School
School Improvement Plan 2018-19
Make sure that the Rights Respecting School Award is part of everyone’s education at Middleton and try to achieve the Gold award again.
Make sure that the adults who help run the school (staff and governors) are working together to do the best they can for everyone at Middleton.
Keep the school running as normally as we can during the building works, and be ready for having an extra class start each year.
Teaching and learning
Teachers will try to help us to get even better at Maths and Writing. We will be given more time to do longer pieces of Writing by ourselves.
When we find things harder in Reading, Writing and Maths, teachers will try to give us extra help so we can catch up.
This year’s Sports Ambassadors have a lot lined up. They are currently planning a KS2 Table Tennis Tournament and will be delivering a whole school Healthy Living Assembly as well as helping out with KS1 PE lessons. They will also be setting up some lunchtime sports clubs for the younger children!
Thank you for your generosity in supporting Children in Need. We raised £674.42 which will go directly to supporting some of the fantastic projects that Children in Need fund. A big thanks to Mrs Garton in the school kitchen for baking around 500 Pudsey cookies, which went down very well with us all! RRSA Right of The Child Article 3 : The best interests of children must be the primary concern in making decisions that may affect them. All adults should do what is best for children. When adults make decisions, they should think about how their decisions will affect children. This particularly applies to budget, policy and law makers.
Lots of our work this term has been based on the theme of Into the Forest. We have enjoyed learning about the tales of Robin Hood and other forest related stories. We visited Sherwood Forest on a beautiful autumn day where we met Maid Marion. We have learnt how to use a bow and arrow in our PE lessons. We finished the topic with an amazing dress up day and built castles with special features to keep the enemy out.
On Thursday 8th November, Year 5 and Year 6 were invited to take part in the Games of Remembrance at Meadow Lane Stadium where the British Army played a friendly football game against the German Armed Forces. The event was very moving and our pupils behaved beautifully during the whole ceremony.
