Our children are so special and make all of us at Homefield proud!
This week has ended tremendously for me, because I learnt what our pupils truly think about Homefield. This morning we had an appraisal in readiness for our up and coming SIAMS inspection. When questioned by our Diocesan visitor, our children agreed that whenever we have visitors into school they are welcomed and become part of our Homefield family. They also said they were proud to be at Homefield and wished to wear their uniforms with pride to High School so that they could bring what they have learnt from us to their new schools. Hearing this has made me so proud to be the Headteacher and resonates yet again how wonderful our pupils are.
Our school's Christian vision is founded on the values of family and friendship. They are the main drivers for school improvement and are inherent in all we do from policy to playground. The biblical links to theology for family and friendship are:
Psalm 133:1 Oh how wonderful, how pleasing when all of God's people come together as one. (Family)
John 4:21 And he has given us this command: anyone who loves God must also love their brother and sister. (Friendship)
More information on our Christian vision will be arriving home soon. Please discuss this with your child.
In support of this ethos, we welcomed the Friends of Horsey Seals in to present to the children all about the rescue work they do. It was highly informative and encouraging to reduce plastic pollution. After this, our courageous advocates in the JLT prepared biscuits and held a bake sale to raise funding for their charity. Homefield pupils always wish to make a difference to our world.
Attendance was won by Year 1 with a superb 100%. Swallowtails won the Team Points race. Good job guys!
Next week, we have a disco, our whole school Read, Share and Review afternoon, and our Years 5 & 6 performance. I have no doubt this will be an amazing show.
Have a great weekend everyone!
