Ingoldsby Academy Update September 2021 Part 2

It's been another busy few weeks at Ingoldsby. I am really proud of how well the children have settled into a routine. There is a sense of purpose in every class I have visited.


The number of reading logs this week is double last week!

Reading daily is so important. At Ingoldsby we understand the huge advantage that daily reading gives a child. We incentivise reading with an extra breaktime on a Friday, raffle tickets for a prize draw and 5 house points.

Our oldest pupils are currently logging their reading most frequently.
By Year 6, pupils should be reading for more than 30 minutes each day.

Logging reading involves holding your camera/ QR code reader on a phone or tablet over this image.

If you lose your QR code, it is always on the school website or you can use this link:

On request, we have given paper logs to some children who do not have devices at home.

Key Stage 2: From year 3 onwards, these should be completed daily rather than at the end of the week and by the child- not the parent as the logging is part of the homework. It is not enough for parents to say it is done; it must be recorded online or day by day in the paper log by the child.

Well done to our hockey team who earned a bronze medal at the summer cup yesterday! A fabulous achievement and well earned. Mrs Bland was smiling from ear to ear!

Wraparound/ Fabulous Foxes

Please be aware that we only book staff in to run wraparound when we have bookings. Please give 48 hours notice when booking your child into Fabulous Foxes so that we can make sure that we have the staff to run the sessions.


We are looking for a Parent Governor. If you would be interested in joining our team, please contact the academy to request a nomination form and further guidance on how to apply.


We will put the lost property box outside school tonight and next week, weather permitting. We have quite a collection!

Harvest Festival

We are visiting the church during school time on Thursday for assembly. If you would like to donate to the local foodbank, we will take donations down to the church.

We have almost everyone's permissions on MCAS for local trips. Please check on the app under parental consent.

Have a lovely weekend!
