Harvest Festival 2019

Submitted by headteacher on Sunday, October 6, 2019 - 10:17

The whole school enjoyed a wonderful celebration of the Harvest in St Mary's Church this afternoon.  A big well done to all classes for their brilliant array of 'performances' that showed harvest in many different ways; reading, acting,dancing, singing, video-making - we had everything!  A huge thank you to all families that donated food; This year the gifts will be divided between our own Community Cupboard and the Nourish Foodbank in Tunbridge Wells.

Finally a big well done to Year 6 for leading the service so well.

Our Amazing School

Submitted by headteacher on Thursday, July 18, 2019 - 23:28
Wow! What another very busy and successful school year we have had and last Friday was a shining example of the day in the life of our wonderful school. It started at about 6.30am with parents and staff together setting up for sportsday! Mr & Mrs Stanford even arrived with bacon sandwiches which were appreciated very much. Indeed it was a fabulous morning enjoyed by everyone. Well done to all the children but particularly those in Scotney who won both the KS1 and KS2 sports cup. Thank you to Mrs Mileham for organising the event, which as ever ran very smoothly. Thank you to the PTFA for providing refreshments and of course to you the parents, families and friends for all your support.

Following a picnic lunch, the school then opened its' classroom doors and parents were warmly invited to experience an afternoon in the life of Goudhurst & Kilndown pupil. There was a real buzz throughout the school and lots of parents commented on how it had been a wonderful day, just perfect!

Village Fete 2019

Submitted by headteacher on Thursday, June 13, 2019 - 10:01

Thank you to everyone who attended the Fete,  it was truly a wonderful community affair. The May Queen and King, Lola and Finley, spectacularly opened the fete. Well done to our Maypole Dancers who performed beautifully. Thank you to Mrs Plewes and Mrs House for preparing the children. Indeed, I received many comments from members of the community about how lovely it is to see children dancing around the Maypole. The inclement weather did not dampen anyone's spirits; in good true British style, we all kept clam and just carried on. Particular thanks must also go to all those parents who gave up their time to set up, run stalls and then at the end helped us clear away. How lucky we are to have such an amazing community! I think you will agree the pictures courtesy of Ali Tuson capture the atmosphere brilliantly!

I am sure you will also share our delight with the SATS results achieved by the year 6 pupils this year. 87% achieved the expected level in Reading, 87% in Writing and 90% in Maths.  Our provisional combined figure for Reading, Writing and Maths is 83% against the national figure of 64%, which is FANTASTIC!

87% of our Early Years Children achieved a “Good level of Development” which is significantly higher than last year’s national figure of 71%.

Our KS1 children have also done extremely well. 80% achieved the expected level in Reading, Writing and Maths.

Everyone has worked very hard to achieve these results, so well done to you all and I know that you too will join me in thanking the staff for their continued hard work and dedication.

Today we celebrated Bastille Day as part of our teaching and learning of French. The children dressed in red, white and blue and enjoyed a variety of french activities this morning. This afternoon all the classes took to the playground for an afternoon of fun and a picnic with a french flavour! Thank you to the PTFA for providing the entertainment and food. Check out the wonderful cake!

Tonight we are looking forward to the KS2 Production of 'Ye Ha' which if the dress rehearsal yesterday is anything to go by, I know you are not going to be disappointed.

Tomorrow we have our final celebration assembly in St. Mary's Church at 9.15am - come if you can.

As we draw closer to the end of a very full year I would like to wish the children who are leaving every success at their new schools.  They have all grown, not only in stature but also in confidence and ability and have become young people that we can all be very proud of.  I would also like to thank their parents for their continual support during their child's time with us.
 
On behalf of all of governors and parents I would like to thank our wonderful staff.  As usual they have all worked incredibly hard throughout the year.  For some who are leaving us I would wish them every success in the future. 
 
On behalf of the staff I would like to thank all of the parents who have supported the school throughout the year, our amazing PTFA members who have raised so much money for the school, our volunteers who have listened to children read, helped transport children to sporting activities, helped at forest school and helped at after school clubs.  The staff and I all realise we are incredibly lucky to have your support and would like to thank you all.
 
And finally although we have the final week of school left, I would like to wish everyone a pleasant, relaxing and safe summer holiday along with the fervent hope that the sun continues to shine!! I look forward to seeing everyone back at school on Tuesday 4th September.  
 

Infant Games

Infant Games

On Tuesday 3rd July a team of year 2s entered the Infant Games at Hayesbrook School. Some of our year 6 young leaders also came along to help run a Tri Golf activity. The day was warm but with a lovely breeze which stopped us from sweltering. The children took part in 10 different activities, experiencing a range of sports from Skateboarding and Yoga to Basketball and Balanceability.  The activities were fun and non-competitive (though, of course, our children took them very seriously!) We were also asked to bring along some fruit to feed the Smoothie cycle which provided some wonderful drinks for the children.  Every child enjoyed themselves and came away wanting more….they all want skateboards now! Our year six young leaders performed brilliantly, leading each group as they appeared and explaining their activity perfectly. They were a real credit to the school.

Many thanks to the parents for transporting the children and supporting them.

Well done to Gus, Noah, Henry, Beau, David, Savvy, Tula, Emily, Jessamy, Evie, Hayley, Julia, Elise, Jake, Sam and Ryan.
