Welcome back information: 19th January 2016

Dear Everyone
Firstly, a huge thank you to our parents for continuing to support us as we get to grips with our new temporary accommodation and the changes to routines that it necessitates.  The children have been absolutely fantastic in adapting to their new classrooms and routines; their enthusiasm and spirit makes it all worthwhile.
Now that we have our temporary accommodation up and running, we are in the process of ‘fine tuning’ our new arrangements and making sure everything runs as it should.  The new arrangements for lunches are working well and the children seem to be enjoying their dinners.  As you know, we have been helped out by WHS to enable us to run weekly PE sessions, I am now looking into further options to extend the provision of physical activity for the children.  We are again entering the Carlisle District Music and Drama Festival this year and several children have signed up to compete in individual speaking events.  We will also be entering a KS1 ‘action song’ and KS2 choir in the musical events section.  Our intention is to ensure that the children do not miss out on any of the ‘fun stuff’ we would normally do because of our altered circumstances.  Your suggestions and feedback in regard to this are, as always, much appreciated.
Other updates in brief:
  • Music lessons will re-commence from next week on Tuesday 26th Mr Bradley’s sessions will continue to be held on Tuesday mornings and Mr Hemmingway’s on Tuesday afternoons; these will be held in church.
  • The school gate is locked at 8.55am when the school day starts; children who arrive late must first report to the school office situated on the car park, they will then be walked round the school perimeter by a member of staff to enter by the main gate. We would really appreciate your assistance in minimising late arrival to school as it causes some disruption to staff who have to leave other duties to attend to late arrivals.
  • Please remember to send a labelled water bottle to school with your child every day; these can be re-filled during the school day if necessary.
  • Please remember to send your child in with a PE kit every WEDNESDAY; these should then go home with your child at the end of the day.
  • Reception Class children can be picked up directly from church on a Friday at the end of the day; this change to arrangements has been made for their own safety so that they don’t have to walk around the school perimeter at a very busy time of day.
  • Thank you to all those parents who are parking considerately and helping us to minimise road safety risks to children at the start and end of the day, a few issues remain however and co-operation from everyone is required to minimise congestion.
  • Multi-Sports clubs proved very popular last term; we still have some sessions outstanding which did not run due to the flooding, I am hoping to run these after half term when we have more daylight and hopefully more facilities.
  • This term’s Open Forum for Parents will be held on Monday 8th February at 3.45pm in Class 4 to enable you to feedback to us and discuss any issues arising from our new temporary arrangements.
On behalf of all the staff and governors, may I thank you all again for your support, kindness and consideration as we look forward to a brighter future together.

Welcome to Crosby-on-Eden C of E Primary School; a small school with a 3-11 age range. The school converted to Academy Status in November 2012.

As a Church School,‘all members of the school community know that they are valued and the ethos of trust and respect is clearly evident.’ (SIAMS 2015). The school has excellent links with the church, local community and cluster schools, and we are highly committed to working effectively and constructively in partnership with parents.

Our Governors are involved in every aspect of school life and work effectively to ensure dynamic leadership, high standards and sound management. We have an exceptional school that values and invests in every member of the school community. Crosby-on-Eden Primary School is vibrant, exciting and led with vision, honesty and purpose. ‘Relationships between all members of the school community are excellent; staff and children demonstrate compassion and kindness.’ (SIAMS 2015)

In 2013, Crosby-on-Eden School was judged ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted for the second consecutive inspection. The inspection highlighted:

‘Crosby on Eden provides an outstanding education for all its pupils and prepares them extremely well for the next stage in their education. This includes their personal development as well as their academic achievement.’ (Ofsted, June 2013)

We are proud of our school and everyone in it.

Miss A Weston
