Parking and road safety

We have received a number of complaints regarding car users parking on the pavements close to the school. Please walk to school if you can; it is good for you and your child/ren. If you must drive, please park sensibly in a designated space and not on pavements.

It is also helpful to remind you and your child/ren that:

  • Young children need to be taught how to cross the road safely;
  • Everyone needs to look both ways before crossing a road;
  • It is important to listen for cars and other vehicles;
  • It is helpful if parents/carers or older siblings hold the hand/s of younger children whilst on the pavement.

Gold Club development visit at Culloden Primary Academy

Challenging disadvantage in the Early Years

Event date: 18th November 2015

Senior leaders, EYFS coordinators and practitioners attended the development day which was led by the EYFS Assistant Principal, Nursery Manager and Reception Manager.

The day was to show how our school has developed an innovative practice in the Early Years. We showed how we support families and their children before they begin nursery. We explained the additional programmes we implement during holidays and interventions we provide to ensure pupils’ needs area being met.

In addition, the attendees had the opportunity to observe a range of lessons being taught in nursery and reception classes. This has a huge impact as the quality of teaching was deemed to be ‘outstanding’ when Ofsted inspected our school in July 2015.

Impact/feedback:

The attendees were from various schools in London, such as Lambeth and Redbridge. There were a range of teachers, EYFS leaders and a head teacher who attended the development day.

The feedback from all attendees was very positive:

“The children are so school ready and the teaching and learning is so rich. The school has such lovely welcoming feel. Thank you for having us.”

“I value the opportunity to talk, ask questions and see teaching in action.”

“Great EYFS expertise throughout the phase, consistent outstanding teaching and a great assessment procedure to trace progress over time.”

“I found walking through the school and observing teaching to be valuable.”
All attendees stated that they would implement methodologies/approaches that they had experienced.

Lord Mayor’s Show

Pupils from Year 6 were invited by The Mercers’ Company to take part in the Lord Mayor’s show on Saturday 14th November.

Despite the miserable wet weather, they all rose to the occasion dressed as cats from Dick Whittington. They took part in cycling the pedibus, carrying the banners and waving to the crowds with great enthusiasm.
