2017.03.24: Letter from the Headteacher
Dear Parents & Carers
Comic Relief 2017
A huge thank you to every member of the school community for an amazing day of fundraising in amongst our usual programme of exciting learning activities. Aside from the non-uniform day, pupils also arranged a range of events from cake sales to designing a new red nose to a crossbar challenge! Special thanks to Mrs Evans and the form representatives from every tutor group who did such a wonderful job of arranging the day. We raised an amazing total of £236.00. Photographs of a range of the activities can be found on the GVC website.
Safer Cycling – Year 5 & Year 6
Congratulations to all pupils who completed their safer cycling course this week, getting through some challenging weather in the process! Our pupils were, as ever, a credit to the school and showed both determination and skill in completing the course. Thank you to Mrs Phillips for organising and photographs of the cycling can also be found on the GVC website.
Friends of GVC Cinema Night
The Friends of GVC warmly invite all pupils to a Cinema night at the school on Friday 31st March from 6pm to 8.15pm. Entry is free and there will be hot dogs, popcorn, snacks and drinks available to purchase on the night. If your child would like to attend – there is no charge, but all pupils require a ticket. Please see Mrs Wright in the school office if you have not yet requested a ticket.
Easter Progress Checks and Bring Your Work Home for the Holidays
Just a reminder that Progress Checks will be issued to pupils in all year groups on Friday 31st March 2017.
As previously advertised, we are also running our Bring your Work Home for the Holidays event in which pupils will collect all of their work across the curriculum to proudly show off to parents, friends and families! Work will be available to bring home on Tuesday 4th April and pupils may need an additional bag to carry everything home. I will provide further detail on how parents can help review their child’s work and suggest some ways of discussing progress which will be useful to your son/daughter. The main aim of course, is to celebrate the level of progress being made across the curriculum and ensure that every child understands how much their work, effort and achievement is valued, both at school and at home.
