October update

Sunday, 18 October 2015

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

Car-boot success

Sunday, 17 May 2015

This Saturday we held our popular car-boot sale on the car-park at the rear of school. We saw familiar friends from the local community attending as well as families across the Federation and new faces too. With a hot bacon sandwich and a cup of tea car-booters were able to pick up some bargains and treasures on what was a sunny morning. All the proceeds from the event go into our Friends account which benefits pupils across the school. We were extremely pleased to raise £450 yesterday! Thanks to everyone who came and supported.

This term has seen the arrival of some very special new guests to Victoria – our three new chicks.

The Lions of Zululand.

Saturday, 18 April 2015

We all had a fantastic if slightly belated end to our Spring Term Topic this week when the Lions of Zululand visited for the day and performed for everyone. They were absolutely amazing, bright, vibrant, colourful, loud and entertaining. Watching the children’s faces was incredible. Many of the pupils were completely mesmerised by them.
