Letters to Parents & Carers

This week's Headteacher Letter

26th June 2024

Dear Parents & Carers,

Sports Day
We had a fantastic Sports Day on Monday with over 500 children enjoying the activities in a friendly, encouraging atmosphere – we were absolutely delighted with the turnout of parents for the event. The children loved having you there and we can look forward to an even bigger and better event next year – please mark it off in your diary: Tuesday 24th June 2025. A special word of thanks to Mr. Iqbal for organising the event so well and our Positive Play Leaders for supporting our younger children throughout the day.

Year 6 Afternoon Tea
All Year 6 parents and carers are invited to the annual Y6 Afternoon Tea, an afternoon to celebrate their journey with us through songs, words, pictures and cake! Details will be sent out on Monday but please keep the date free in your diary – Wednesday 17th July. The children would love for you to be there and share in their memories of Westminster.

Attendance – last push!
Our overall attendance has fallen due to Eid last week, but there is still plenty of time left for the children to keep up their efforts! We still have 60 children with 100% attendance which is fantastic. We are looking at 19 children who are just below 90% - parents will be receiving texts to encourage the children to attend every day to try and get over 90% - below this level children are described as ‘Persistently Absent’ and is a target we must reduce. Thank you for your support.

Just a reminder that we have introduced a new program to all children called myHappymind. It is all based around helping children to understand how their brain works and to support them in developing positive skills and habits to be their absolute best selves!
To further embed this learning, myHappymind has developed a Parent App. To access these materials just go to https://myhappymind.org/parent-resources to create your free account.

New classes and new classrooms
We will be telling the children and sending you a text on Friday, letting you know which class the children will be in next year. We will have our transition day on Wednesday where they will meet their new teachers for the day. Some classes will be moving classrooms too in the last few weeks, and the children will be lending a hand! When it is their moving day, we will let you know and the children will be able to come in their own clothes on that day.

End of Year Reports
These will be sent home with the children, on Monday 15th July.

Friday 19th July
This is our last day in school – we will be having a picnic lunch on this day at school will close at 1.30pm, as it always does on the last day of a term.

Let’s hope the sun keeps shining!


God bless,
Mr. S. Gallacher
