Executive Headteacher Appointment

Dear Parents and Carers

First and foremost we hope that everyone in our school community - our pupils and our families are keeping safe and well during this difficult period. We have missed being able to see you all in school every day and we are really looking forward to September when our schools will be able to reopen to all year groups.

The Autumn term will be a time for a fresh new start for all of us and we know that everyone will be full of energy and enthusiasm for the future. With this in mind we have some fantastic news for you: we are truly delighted to announce that a new Executive Headteacher has been appointed to lead The Learning Federation schools.

Mr David Denchfield will be joining us in November 2020 and brings to us a wealth of skills and experience which we are confident will be a real asset to our schools and enable our children to flourish and overcome the challenging circumstances that we have all, as a nation, experienced this year.

David is very much looking forward to getting to know you all and meeting your children later in the Autumn term and will be sending his own personal message to you.

We wish you a safe and enjoyable Summer and will keep you fully updated with future news and developments

Alan Kemp
Chair of Governors
On behalf of the Governing Board of The Learning Federation

Virtual Sports Week - 06.07.20

Virtual Sports Week - Week Commencing 06/07/2020
Sign up for The Virtual Sports Day 2020 – Belfast Times

We are determined to not miss out on some of the more exciting events we hold at the end of year whether you are at school or at home. Our annual 'Sports Day' is no different!

Next week we will be virtually hosting a week of fun 'Sports Day' activities. With just a few household items you’ll be all be able to take part, wherever you are. We’ve chosen activities that don’t require lots of space or fancy equipment, and don’t involve contact between children. But you are welcome to change the activities to suit your situation, the only thing that matters is that you get active and have fun!

Every day, next week, we will publish 2 activities (with video guides to show you what to do) that you can do in your home, garden, at a park or at school. You will need to record your results in a grid, which we will post to our Facebook for you to print at home or you can draw your own!

To make sure you are ready, here is a list of equipment you will need (if you don't have the exact same thing then use your imagination!):
  • Monday: markers (can be literally anything), tape measure or a ruler
  • Tuesday: marker, a target (bucket, large saucepan, washing up basin, etc), throwables (small beanbags, balled up socks, or anything throwable that doesn't bounce much), a spoon (big enough to hold an egg), a hard-boiled egg (or small ball).
  • Wednesday: random objects to make an assault course, sacks (pillowcase, bin bag etc).
  • Thursday: space to dance, a music player, 4 markers, timer 
  • Friday: an empty plastic 500ml water bottle, a table, a stick (short broom, cricket bat etc).
At the end of the week, you can submit your results to us and we will announce winners from each class. Make sure you take lots of photographs and videos to share with us, we can't wait to see you having fun! Stay tuned for more details to follow!
