The summer term has begun at Hall Meadow, although the weather has not supported this. The children arrived at school today happy and ready to learn. My first day with the children has been very rewarding, seeing them in the classrooms working together, supporting each other and applying themselves has been very encouraging.

Today I have spent time in several of the classrooms and worked with the children.

In Iris when I visited this morning the children were enjoying working on the computers.

In Demeter they were engaged in their phonics and working hard.

In Apollo the children were working very hard looking at puppets and the movements, it was good to see so many happy faces.

In Poseidon they were enjoying labelling plants and were very keen to explain to me how they had been learning.

In Athena they were working very hard on their maths skills with Mr Williams, the children have settled very well with their new teacher.

In Ares the children were enjoying drama activities based on e safety; it was pleasing to see how well they were using drama to highlight their understanding of the issues.

In Zeus I really enjoyed working with some of the children in small groups and one to one on various problem solving activities in preparation for their SATs.

Today in assembly we focused on life in Britain and British Values on the run up to the Queen’s birthday celebrations next week.

As the new Head teacher to the school I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for such a positive and encouraging day.

Curiosity is considered a powerful virtue at Hall Meadow Primary School but with an academic record like theirs, nobody is going to be asking “Why?” it is this year’s Sunday Times Parent Power primary school of the year.
The Kettering primary is consistently successful – one of only 20 schools in the country where all pupils achieved level 4 or above over the past three years. As Lorraine Cullen, head teacher since Hall Meadow opened in 2002, says: “Children are born curious with a natural sense of inquiry. But when they are spoonfed and told what to do, their natural inquisitiveness and love of learning is educated out of them.
