From the chair of governors The Governors want to put on record their congratulations to Mr Biddulph and the entire school staff for their hard work in opening the school this term. It is a pleasure for us to see the children settling down so well. There have, of course, been teething problems in working in a newly-built school, but the staff have handled these so smoothly and without fuss that the children’s experience has not been affected. Our thanks are due for the patience, skills and professionalism of all the staff. Best wishes, John
The Governors have consulted with North West Cambridge Development and the Local Authority regarding the opening of our Nursery. We have decided that the nursery will open during 2017. The Community Centre (which is next door to our school) is due to open in 2016 and will also offer child care. We will share more information when we have it. Thanks, Mr Biddulph
We have a new phone number 01223 792440. The original number will phase out from December. Please would you also update the school office of your phone details have changed. Thanks the Admin Team
Dear Parents/Carers, Thanks to those parents who raised question about security guards at Eddington Avenue. We aim to respond to such questions as soon as we can. Please do not raise questions via Google groups because it is more than likely that the information will be either incorrect or out of date. We appreciate direct communication via firstname.lastname@example.org Happy Christmas to you all UCPS Team Information about Security Guard / Road Situation The security guards are employed through a contractor providing site security for the development and have been located on Eddington Avenue whilst construction works are underway in the immediate area on the school and newly constructed junction. The development team regularly reviews security and access to ensure that safety is maintained. The restrictions on the use of Eddington Avenue have been limited to school users since September 2015. There will be some works in January to complete the junction that will see the traffic lights being commissioned and to enable this, the security hut will maintained but the gates will be moved further south on the road to provide adequate space to undertake these works. The road will be a public highway adopted in due course by Cambridgeshire County Council. Once the traffic lights have been commissioned, we will review the provision to ensure that adequate access and safety is considered. In 2016 there will be increased footfall on Eddington Avenue as the market housing developers will open up their marketing suite in this location. 2017 will see the completion of the first phase of development when the road will open fully.
There was power cut last night and phones down. Call 07467201526 if you want to call school
Please make sure you send your child in warm clothes now that it becoming a little cooler. We will be giving information about the process of communicating with families if in the unlikely event that we need to close the school for bad snow weather. Just in case...
Reports Dear Parents/carers, I understand that there is some confusion about the short report sent to you last week. For clarity: - these are a snap shot of the learning skills in one moment in time. - they are intended to be a starting point for conversation at our Pupil Learning Conferences on Thursday. - we determine how far a child is on their journey by observing independent action (consistently). - schools have to report once a year. We decided to report three times to continue discussion between home and school. - learning skills are a key part of identifying their progress Can I reiterate my request that parents communicate directly with the school, via your child's class teacher rather than between parents via google groups? This is because with a google group email list we cannot address any concerns. With thanks Mr Biddulph
