Rothley Church of England Academy Newsletter February 2019

Welcome to the new format of the Rothley Church of England Academy Newsletter. After recently exploring this format with new initiatives such as the Rothley Review by Mr Mclugash (which has had over 1,000 views since the first edition) and the termly sports newsletter (which had over 430 views), we as a school, have decided to use this for the newsletter for the next few months. In the March Rothley Parent Liaison Forum (RPLF) we will look to seek feedback from you, as parents, on how you would like to receive the newsletter. We hope you enjoy this first edition

Mr Richards

What a fantastic start we have had back after Christmas. The children have been thoroughly enjoying the new term and are doing some fantastic learning in their lessons.

Mrs Meadows' class have performed their value assembly to their parents in school and it was a great turn out - thank you all for attending.

The next value will be Justice, which Mr Clark will be leading and Miss Patel's class will be doing their class assembly on the 19th March at 10:00 at Rothley Church.

A big thank you to all the parents who attended the Parents' Progress Meetings. These were very well attended by all year groups and are vital in developing our home / school relationship. I would like to personally thank you all for coming and supporting your children and the school.

I hope you enjoy reading the new format of the newsletter and I would appreciate any feedback.

Have a great half term and we look forward to seeing all the children back on Monday 25th February.

Rothley Parents' Liaison Forum

A quick thank you to all parents that took time to complete the first Rothley Parents' Liaison Forum (RPLF) which had a theme around the school website.

Here are the responses based on year group - click to enlarge.

The next survey has already been sent out and is all about the fantastic Rothley Review which Mr Mclugash does every half term. The children at this school have a love and passion for reading which is evident around the school.

Young Voices 2019

In January, 30 of our Year 5 and 6 children were lucky enough to experience the musical extravaganza, Young Voices, at the NEC in Birmingham.

We sang with 6,100 other children in the world’s largest school choir alongside Tony Hadley, Sharlene Hector (AKA Basement Jaxx) and Britain’s Got Talent golden buzzer finalist Beau Dermott. It was incredible!!! The children sang their absolute hearts out after months of hard work and were a credit to the school. We are SO proud of them! Another school sitting nearby commented on how amazing our choir were and how we kept them going! We can’t wait to do it again next year!!! The current Year 4 and 5, watch this space…
