The week an inspector called!
This week we were visited by Her Majesty’s Inspector Mr. Chris Smith as part of the four year cycle of inspection that we were due. The findings are confidential until they go through a due diligence process at Ofsted, but we will receive a letter in a few days time which will outline Mr Smith’s findings, and whether or not our school continues to be regarded as a ‘good’ school.
As school principal, I never cease to be amazed at the support our school community gives to special events like this. The children’s behaviour in lessons was impeccable and our teaching team offered the usual high quality lessons that ran like clockwork throughout school. Governors were able to attend meetings with very little notice, and of course our families showed us the best support we could have wished for. The inspector said parent view questionnaires and face to face meetings with parents, were virtually unanimously supportive of the school. Many many thanks.
The inspector reminded me that at Key Stage 2 (Y3-Y6) CVPS has undergone a significant change in the past four years moving from a school of 50 pupils to a school of 170 pupils. Our school is constantly moving forward on its journey of improvement with a strong team of staff who are all passionate about delivering the best. They constantly review methods and systems to teach in exciting ways and to meet the social, emotional needs of our children. I am exceptionally proud of the whole school community – children, parents, staff and governors. We are very fortunate to have so many people who care so much about getting CVPS to be the best for the children. So while I can’t share anything about the inspector’s judgements, I am very proud of the CVPS community and all it continues to achieve.

You’ll see from the photos this week, that football club got off to a great start as the children enjoyed learning new skills including how to play fairly and as a team. We have also had badminton coaches and swimming start up again, as well as Hoopstarz. All the sport helps our children to stay healthy and to enjoy sports. Thanks again Miss Weatheritt for coordinating and the KS2 staff for supervising!
Piano lessons next week!
Next week children who have signed up in Y4, Y5 and Y6 will be starting their individual piano lessons. Please speak to the class teacher if you would like your child in these year groups to learn piano.
We were delighted to receive a thank you letter from the Hoopstarz team to thank the CVPS children for their excellent behaviour on Tuesday. Well done everyone – we hope you enjoyed your hula hooping. It’s been great to see everyone continuing to practise on the field.
Ashleigh’s Outdoor ideas
Enjoy using the skills from forest school to make your own kite using spare things from home, such as plastic bags, string. Check the weather forecast online or on the TV to see when it’s windy enough to fly your kites!
