Dear parents, carers, staff, governors and friends,

Welcome back to the summer term!

This week at Brindishe Lee …

It has been Picasso all the way! We ALL had a fantastic day on Tuesday with storyteller, Olivia, as she worked with each class and told the ‘story of Picasso’ and then brought some of his paintings to life. It has inspired some amazing art across the school, filling the children’s sketch books.

Yesterday Year 1 were the first class to visit Tate Modern to see the Picasso exhibition. They had a fantastic time at the gallery, complimented by several members of the public for their knowledge about the paintings they saw as well as their behaviour on the train, station and at the Tate Itself. Well done Year 1! Year 2 have been today and KS2 visit next week … thank you in advance to all parents / carers accompanying classes on this visit, we couldn’t do it without you. We are all looking forward to the Brindishe Lee Picasso exhibition on 03 July.

Last night we welcomed our new Reception 2018 families as they came to their first Brindishe Lee meeting. Everyone is looking forward to September …

Rights Respecting School  

This week we are focusing on :

Article 24 (the right to have a voice and to be listened to). This is perfectly timed with the closing of the parent survey today…

This week, in assembly, I shared the outcomes of the pupil survey with the children and explained how their views would be included in the planning and focus for the 2018 – 2019 School Community Development Plan.

The outcomes of both the children’s and parent / carer survey will be shared with you soon …
