A fruitful half term

Posted on: 12 Oct 2016 by Weston Green School

After another busy and fruitful half term, the children will deserve their break before the build up to assessments in November.

Since September, we have been looking to set the platform for both the near future and for further ahead and that is why it was so good to see all those who attended the Key Stage 2 information evening last Thursday. I trust that it was useful not just as an information-gathering exercise but also a valuable time of talking to teachers and beginning to make those connections which may well be so important as we go forward. There was a chance, too, to meet some parents who are not only presently going through KS2 but who have also had children move onto senior schools from Weston Green.

For those who were unable to attend but would have liked to, you should have received via bookbags a booklet which highlights the provision at Weston Green through Years 3-6 and which lists those senior schools where children have been offered places in the last two years.

It brings home again the almost a unique place in which Weston Green finds itself:  providing a co-educational experience form 3-11 with such a wide range of choice at senior school to meet each child’s needs at 11. We firmly believe that making a choice for children at that stage is the optimum time, transferring into senior school and allowing flexibility until that moment so that the correct choice is made. It will not need me to tell you that children change a very great deal between 7 and 11. This structure offers that vital and so powerful continuity of learning, along with that flexibility of choice at 11, which results in a sustained development of children’s personal and academic progress and is not hampered either by a double change (7 and 11) or by a fixed destination which may become limiting as children develop.

As we go into the break, it is a chance to reflect upon both the recent past and to look ahead. Have a wonderful fortnight with your amazing children.
