The Friends of Kibblesworth Academy is an organisation run by parents, staff and supporters of the school who organise events for the children and raise vital funds to support school projects. Recent events such as the Christmas Fair have led to money being made available to invest in reading books which benefit all of the children within school. The Friends have also helped to subsidise school trips, paying for coaches, and supporting us to make off site activities accessible to all. The work they do makes a real difference to everyone at school, and I would like to thank them for their continued efforts.
The Friends are holding an open meeting on Monday 29th April at 5.30pm for anyone who feels they would like to join the group and support the vital work they do across the year.
If you feel you would like to support the school and the pupils, and become more actively involved in fundraising and running events, please feel free to come along.
ICARE Behaviour values
We were delighted to welcome many of you into school recently to help us launch our behaviour values to parents. As well as finding out more about our simplified school rules and ICARE values, parents had the chance to spend some time in the classroom creating some art which exemplified our core values of innovation, care, accountability, respect and engagement.
The finished pieces of art have been combined and displayed around school as a reminder of our values.
Thanks to all who were able to attend and make it such a fun afternoon and pleasurable event.
Schools Buddy & eschools
We continue to work hard to make the adoption of eschools and schoolsbuddy as simple as possible, but as you are undoubtedly aware, some issues still exist with these new tools.
Thankfully the snagging lists are getting shorter day by day, but I would like to thank you all for your patience and understanding, and also the continuing efforts of Clare, Joanne and Ken in the office.
Just a reminder to all parents that the Summer Term is home to our end of year tests. All year groups undertake assessments during this term, but these become especially important in Years 1, 2 and 6.
We would ask that every effort is made to avoid medical appointments and absence from school during the following dates for these year groups.
Year 6 - Monday 13th - Thursday 16th May 2019
Year 1 - Monday 10th - Friday 14th JUNE 2019
Year 2 - Assessments will be carried out across May 2019
