Wordle: Charlestown primary


A wordle is a program that takes all the words off a website or document and then makes a pattern from them.  The bigger the word the more often it has been used.   I think this says alot about our school and our values.   Click on the picture to see the whole wordle.

Dear Parents/Carers, Children, Staff and Governors,

I am writing to tell you about the continuing excellent performance of the school in terms of children’s academic achievements at the end of Key Stage Two.   As you may have heard, last years tests were surrounded by controversy and some of the data from these tests taken last May has only just been released.

I am pleased to report that our results for children’s achievement are excellent.   This means that if you take all the schools in the country from the poorest performing schools where children do not make expected progress, to the highest performing schools where children make more than expected progress, Charlestown ranks  in the top 10%.

This is the result of the hard work of the children, the excellent teaching and support from all the staff and governors and the support that you provide your children with homework and reading at home.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for this outstanding achievement.

Yours sincerely,

Mr D Gauld.

Every Friday of four weeks parents and children are invited to cook together in the community wing at school.   They learn about healthy foods, cooking on a budget and try tasty new recepies.   Everybody then eats their food together and discuss what they like about it and how they created it.

The last of the sessions is next week, but there is another course starting on the 13th of March.   Anyone interested should contact school or Sarah at Family First.
