We are pleased to share the annual report which captures the views expressed from the parent survey undertaken earlier this year. In the report we have sought to share the findings and also to reflect the way in which we are aiming to respond to these findings. We are proud of the feedback we have received and also hope that the report outlines our next steps in further enhancing parental engagement. The report can be downloaded from the parent survey section of our website.
It was great to see so many pupils from years 3,4,5 and 6 representing our school in the cross country run in Market Harborough. All of those who took part should be proud of their individual achievements and for the support they showed to each other. We look forward to the next event in the spring term.
I recently had the opportunity to join the Friends of Church Langton School meeting to plan the activities for the year ahead. It is exciting to think ahead to the events and activities that we can now prepare and I thought was an opportunity to reflect on the contribution that FOCLS make to our school.
All of those involved in FOCLS are volunteers who give up their time to provide experiences for the children and families at our school and to raise funds to extend the resources and provision we have at Church Langton.
Over the past year we have had funding from FOCLS for:
Our sports flag to be used at sports days and other events
New PE equipment which is used by pupils across the school in lessons and clubs.
The year 6 residential trip for 2021 was subsidised by FOCLS to reduce the cost to parents when we were able to organise the trip with limited notice.
Reading books have been purchased for across the school and are being enjoyed by pupils of all ages.
We are also due to a receive a substantial donation to the cost of the new classroom from FOCLS.
Despite the challenges of Covid, in the last year FOCLS have also run fantastic Christmas and Summer Fun Days for the pupils, organised activities such as the Church Langton Tea towel and supported events such as Open Morning.
On behalf of the staff, pupils, governors and parents we would like to thanks those who have been involved with FOCLS over the past year and encourage all of our community to contribute to the charity in the year ahead.
Congratulations to the team of year six boys who won the Table Tennis competition held at Welland Park this week. Having had the chance to play a few of them at school, I know how competitive the team are and they should be very proud of their achievements. They are now looking forward to the area finals which are coming up next week.
Well done to the girls team who played in a series of matches at Harborough Town Football Club this week. The team, made up of pupils in years five and six, played well across the event with victories, draws and defeats all being part of the experience. Thank you to Mr Knowles for coaching the team.
The first fixtures of the season saw the boys’ team travel to Harborough Town to play in two matches. The team played brilliantly, demonstrating our school values and enjoying two victories. Thank you to Mr Knowles for coaching the team.
