October 31 was Halloween and many of our Victoria School pupils dressed up in spooky Halloween costumes and played tricks on unsuspecting staff and pupils!

Here is an acrostic poem written by Leon.

The little children I scare

Roaming at night

In the light of the lamp posts

Creeping in the late night

Keeping their sweets to themselves

Parent/Teacher Evening

Friday, 10 November 2017

Victoria school was buzzing on Wednesday night this week when parents, carers and families came into school to meet with their children’s teachers. Some of our pupils came in with them but were not always happy to  be back at school after an already long school day!

What a delight it was to meet families and see brothers and sisters interacting with each other.

Effective education is a real partnership between families and school. We value working in partnership with you to agree priority goals and consistent strategies to achieve them.

Harvest Thanksgiving 2017

Friday, 10 November 2017

We are all feeling the chill of Autumn in the air as the days get shorter and the winds blow cooler. Autumn reminds us that it is the time of year when many crops are harvested and we are reminded to share our wealth with others. This year, many pupils brought in donations of food which were given to St Chad’s. Thank  you to all the families who kindly made donations of food to this worthy charity.

It has been an excellent half-term at Victoria. We have had our Governor Mark assessment visit and we await the outcome of our application. Our School Improvement Partner visit celebrated the achievements and outcomes for our pupils for last year. A copy of our data report can be found on our website under; Policies and Documents; Data Analysis 2014-2015. We are very proud of all the achievements of all our pupils. We also welcomed an unannounced visit by the Department for Education. They looked at our new Reception Baseline assessment. They thanked us for our hospitality on their visit. We held another successful car-boot sale which was really well attended by our families and community friends. This event run by ‘Friends’ raised £480. Pictures are below. Wishing you all a restful half-term at the end of next week. Justine
