It’s the end of our children’s first full school week and they have settled well into routines and expectations in their new classes. Have a good weekend and we’ll see you all again next week.
A reminder that school will be closed on Monday 19th September, along with all other schools, for the bank holiday to mark the funeral of The Queen. Please have a look/visit our children’s work below.
Please see details of Forest Church this weekend here.

A new year, a new Pedmore Thrive! The latest issue of Pedmore Thrive, which focuses on all aspects of wellbeing, can be found here.
Forest School Volunteer
We are looking for someone who wants to volunteer to help out at our fabulous forest school! It would involve coming to forest school provision and helping out with different classes as they take part in forest school over the course of the academic year. If you are interested, please contact school.
Old Kitchen Sink Needed!
If anyone has an old kitchen sink lying around that they would like to donate to school, please let us know! Mr Robbins is making a mud kitchen for Reception ?.
Beat the Street
We came second in the Stourbridge School leaderboard for average points for Beat The Street! You can see the full results here. We will receive a trophy, a certificate, and a £150 voucher, which we will spend on sports equipment for children to use! Well done to everyone who took part!
We are currently looking into book bags. Many classes do not have the space for rucksacks, but we are aware that children need to have something they can bring books/work to school in. We will be providing you with an update next week on the whole bag situation! Thank you.
Water Bottles in School
I just wanted to clarify what happens with water bottles in school. Every child can bring a water bottle to school and refill it throughout the day. Some classes keep water bottles on tables, but the majority of classes keep water bottles away from tables, which has been the case for many years. The main reason for this is because of the amount of accidents that happen and spill over a child’s own, or others’, work. Especially if water bottles bought in do not have a sports cap, as we request. This has resulted in books having to be discarded because of this. Children are able to have a drink at any time, unless their teacher is in the middle of talking/teaching. We talk to the children (as I have done today) about how this can be seen as disrespectful, so that’s why that rule is adhered to. I have been around classes today and they all have told me what the expectations are for their class, where their water bottles are, etc. I hope this helps to clear up any confusion.
Queen Elizabeth II Tribute
All children in school have contributed to an art tribute to Queen Elizabeth II. You can see a short video of what it looks like here. It looks much better in real life…please take the time to visit at some point over the weekend.
