Welcome to the Summer Term! This first term of summer is always incredibly busy and this year is no exception. Please check today's Gazette for details of events to come. In addition, children in Year 2 and Year 6 will be taking their statutory assessment tests and you will have received plenty of information from your child's teacher about this. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to come in and ask.

Our first event of the new term is a Book Fair which will be held on Monday 24th April 2017 from 3:15pm to 4:45pm, in the KS2 Hall. As always, books will be priced at £1.25 each and we have ordered a huge number of exciting new titles. We really look forward to seeing you all there. Remember, if you are in receipt of a Pupil Premium voucher, your child can use this to purchase books.

If you feel you may be entitled to a £100 voucher, please visit the website http://www3.northamptonshire.gov.uk/councilservices/children-families-education/schools-and-education/Pages/pupil-premium.aspx or contact the school office. It is important to the school that anyone who is eligible for Pupil Premium, is registered to receive it, as the school receives a large amount of additional funding based on these numbers. Please see this week's Gazette for more information on this or contact us for further information. 

 

How quickly the weeks fly by! I can't believe that another term is already over and that when we return, it will be the Summer Term. I've loved every second of my first term as Acting Head Teacher and I can't wait for the next term to begin! Well, maybe after a bit of a rest! The staff have been working hard to plan lots of exciting activities for Term 5 and this week's newsletter will give you an idea of the dates of these. You should also have received your termly overviews, which will give you more information. 

I'd like to thank you all for the support you've given to the school over the last six weeks. We've raised an enormous amount of money; both for the school and for charity - thank you. We have celebrated British Science Week with a fabulous week of fun, science activities. Staff have visited Spain and Italy to learn more about education and children have visited the Space Centre and Daventry Country Park. Our dancers have danced in public and we've celebrated World Book Day by dressing up as our favourite book characters. Red Nose Day was great fun and we enjoyed opening our doors to you on Open Morning and for the Easter Fete. We celebrated the success of all our pupils at Presentation Assemblies and have loved welcoming you to celebrate our successes with us in our Family Assemblies, every Friday morning. You've been learning alongside the children and our Family / Parent Learning sessions have proved very popular. We'll be offering more courses very soon - thank you for supporting these. 

The children have been as delightful as ever; myself and Mrs Wagg have enjoyed being with them in classrooms, on the playground and around school. We love how they tell us, with huge smiles on their faces, how excited they are about their learning. 

Should you need to contact the school urgently during the holidays, please use the 'Contact Us' form on this website and we'll respond as quickly as we can. Everyone at The Grange would like to wish you a happy Easter and we look forward to welcoming you back to school on April 19th.
