HEADTEACHER'S WELCOME

Welcome to Romiley Primary School.

I am very proud to be the Headteacher of Romiley Primary School. Our entire school community demonstrates their exceptional resilience, positivity and exceptional support for one another on a daily basis.

My vision for all learners at Romiley Primary School is that they know they have a unique and valuable voice, that they understand that the culture of tomorrow is not yet defined and that they are able to influence, shape, challenge and lead culture rather than simply fit in to society.

In order to do this, we need high expectations of each other. Our children need the very best academic outcomes they can achieve, but they also need to develop skills and attributes far beyond the academic. We have three words that form the bedrock of everything we do at Romiley Primary school: Resilient, Positive, Supportive. We want our children to develop these skills and attributes in a collaborative and supportive community. We learn best, when we learn together.

I hope you find everything you need on our website but if you have any questions or would like to arrange a visit to our wonderful school, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. We trust that our website will be informative and helpful in further developing the existing co-operation between home and school so that, in partnership together, we can serve the best interests of the children in our care.

You can contact the school office on 0161 430 3101 or e-mail headteacher@romiley.stockport.sch.uk.

Kind regards,

Mr A Bassett

    Dear Parents/Carers, Happy World Bee Day! Our children staff and staff have had a really busy week focussing on our school values. We’ve had two beekeepers, some real (fully risk assessed!) bees visiting us, huge 3D bee sculptures, printing, lino printing and bee garden designing. I am yet again incredibly impressed with the creativity of our amazing teachers and the quality of the work our children have produced. I was planning on having a celebration assembly with all the work today, but some needed more time (to dry!) so we’ll show off the work next week and I’ll make sure I post some pictures in next week’s blog. In our assembly this afternoon, we celebrated the successes of some of our athletes. Our Year 6 girls’ football represented Manchester United on Tuesday at Vicarage Road (Watford’s ground). They did our school and parents proud in a National Premier League tournament, playing against teams like Manchester City and Brighton. They finished second in their group, narrowly missing out on the knock out on the semi-final. I also showed off the trophies of several members of the Signol Athletic football team who won the cup final at the weekend. A huge well done! We all celebrated your fabulous achievements in assembly. As a staff team, we’ve been doing some work on the 9 Protected Characteristics and the Equality Act. We’ve mapped out the explicit ways we teach equality and diversity in our curriculum which was a really powerful. It also helped us find opportunities where we could further improve our curriculum offer. This is our next step. I want to say a huge thank you to our school governors. We held two governor open days this week so our governors could come in and experience what happens in school on a daily basis. Governors are volunteers and give of their time so generously to support and challenge us at school. Thank you. I may well see some of you on Sunday – I decided to run the Manchester 10k along with FRPS. If you’re there, look out for an unfit headteacher lumbering around the course! I ate a clock yesterday… it was very time consuming! Have a great weekend. Mr Bassett

    Dear Parents/Carers, What a wonderful Spring Fair! This was the first real whole school community event for a long time and it was really special for that reason. I’d like to thank the mass of helpers: teachers, support staff, pupils, parents, grandparents, and of course FRPS! A huge thank you goes to FRPS for their tireless efforts and for the amount of organising that went into the Spring Fair. I’d also like to thank the army of knitters who worked their fingers to the bone and knitted a huge amount of bees for our children! Much like a big family dinner, these events can only happen when the whole community contributes. So, thank you! Drum roll please… the winner of the massive bear goes to – James from Mrs Smith’s class! Well done James. Come and collect your bear from the office next week. The Spring Fair was the perfect opportunity to relaunch our school values. I want every child to leave our school more resilient, more positive and more supportive. I am so pleased that these values are shared by our wider school community. As a Greater Manchester school with black and yellow uniform, what better mascot for our values than bees? I also love how the bee represents hard-work and unity. Next week, our children will learn more about resilience, positivity and support in our themed, ‘Bee Week’. These attributes can be difficult to teach, but we are committed to promote, celebrate, encourage and champion them. We can provide opportunities and operate from these core values and hopefully, we’ll nurture children who will become adults who know their influence, are confident and comfortable in themselves, and can change the world around them for the better. Our Year 6 pupils have demonstrated these values this week. They have worked with resilience, positivity and have supported one another incredibly well. Whatever the result, these traits will serve them well in high school and beyond and they can be confident they have done their very best. Well done Year 6. Here's a little riddle for you this weekend: This sentence contains exactly threee erors. See if you can spot them! Have a great weekend! Mr Bassett

    Dear Parents/Carers, Although it’s been a shorter week, it certainly feels as though we’ve packed a lot into it! Next Friday is our Spring Fair! We’re so excited to welcome the whole school community on-site for what promises to be a fun afternoon. FRPS have worked incredibly hard to make this happen – I'm certainly looking forward to the pizza and ice-cream on sale! I really hope you can join us after school on Friday. Following the Spring Fair, we’re having a Bee Week at school where we’ll be looking more closely at the school values of resilience, positivity and support. The Friday of ‘Bee Week’ is World Bee Day! (I should admit that this was a lucky coincidence!) Some Dates for your Diary: I know that you may need to arrange your diaries around some of these events, so I wanted to give you as much notice as possible. The School Council have decided to raise money for the RSPCA this year. They have asked me for a dress down day and we’ve gone through the calendar together and opted for 24th June. It’s really positive for our school councillors to see they can have a real impact on the school and beyond. Brass and Choir Concert: 1st July (we’ll send out more information about timings nearer the time) Transition Day: 6th July (Year 6s to High School, all other children meeting their new teachers) Sports Day: 13th July (KS2 in the morning, EYFS and KS1 in the afternoon) Year 6 Performance: 19th July Year 6 Leavers’ Assembly: 26th July in the morning The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee is a once in a lifetime celebration. As a school, we will be marking this historic event during the first week back after Whit. We plan to have a tea party outside whilst the brass band entertain us; we will have our own ‘river of hope’ responding to the question - ‘What are your hopes for the next 70 years?’ - our children will have the opportunity of walking down this river and reading the responses from other children; we’re also going to have some art work decorating Romiley train station among other events. My thought for the weekend - 6:30 is the best time on a clock, hands down. Whatever you're doing this weekend, I hope you have a good rest. I look forward to seeing you next week. Kind regards, Mr Bassett

    Dear Parents/Carers, “My mum said I didn’t have to come back to school after my appointment, but I told her I wanted to – I didn’t want to miss school!” This was a discussion I had with a child in the playground today and it made my day! I know this isn’t the experience of every child, every day, but I really wish it could be and I know the team here are doing their best to make it a reality for every child - every day. Attendance During this year, I decided that pupil absences should not be as rigorously followed up as they had been in the past. For instance, many parents chose to keep their children out of school when we had an outbreak of infections before Christmas and I fully understand their reasons for doing so. We are now coming out the other side of the pandemic and I believe it is now time to raise the profile and importance of school attendance again. As a school, we have around the national average for school attendance at 95%, however, nearly 1 in 5 children have less than 90% attendance for the year - that is equivalent to half a day out of school every week. Don't forget to join FRPS for their very First Family Cycle this Sunday, meeting at Rose Hill Train station at 11.30am and heading off along Middlewood Way. For further details, get in touch with Cassie, Dani or Robyn on your Classlist App. FRPS will also be sending out a very important newsletter at the start of next week with information about upcoming events, including our Spring Fair on FRIDAY 13TH MAY. You may be aware, our Year 6 pupils will be doing their SATs on the 9th May. As we are just over a week away, I feel it pertinent to say at this point how incredibly proud of them I am. Regardless of how well they do in their SATs, I am utterly convinced that they will have done their absolute best. Remember, SATs are not qualifications, they are a way to measure the school, not the individual. Your children in Year 6 are funny, interesting and engaging, they demonstrate manners and respect, and they demonstrate our school values of resilience, positivity and support. These are the things that will prepare them well for life beyond education. Your children have done you proud. Friends of Tangshutt are holding a free community event on Bank holiday Monday 2nd May on Tangshutt Meadow. It’s a free fun family activity with bug hunts, nature crafts, May pole dancing, music, animals from the Agricultural Rural Centre, tombola and seed sowing from 12.00pm. There will be dates coming out next week including Sports Day, Year 6 leavers’ assembly, Year 6 production, brass and choir concert, and School Council charity dress down day (that’s a long title!). If all the cars in the UK were placed end to end… it’s probably a Bank Holiday. I hope you enjoy your Bank Holiday! Kind regards, Mr Bassett
