Kia ora koutou. Hello everyone.
Glamorgan School 50th Jubilee-athon – Online Sponsored Fundraiser
Our fundraiser is up and running and doing well so far with over$13,000 raised towards a new playground! Thank you so much. Next week is our final Jubilee-A-Thon week and classes are combining learning about Glamorgan School’s history and place in the local community with some fun activities in their classes and a whole school Gold Fun Run on Wednesday (weather permitting). The children’s enthusiasm has been truly infectious around the school and ignited a competitive spirit in both children and their teachers!
What do you think?
Cohort entry is when a school has two entry points per term for children to start school after they have turned five:
- on the first day of term
- at a mid-point during the term
Cohort entry is about helping children to settle better at school. There is evidence that starting school alongside other children helps them build relationships and supports a smoother entry to school life.
Cohort entry can also mean less disruption for new entrant teachers who can prepare for groups of children arriving on a specific date rather than on an individual and ad hoc basis throughout the year. Because of this, many schools believe that cohort entry offers their children the best start to school life.
Links to more information about Cohort Entry are below:
Before changing our school’s entry policy, we must consult with our staff, parents of current and prospective students, and local early learning services and consider whether the policy is generally acceptable.
Click the link below to let us know what you think about cohort entry by completing the short questionnaire. The questionnaire will remain open until Friday 2 June 2023.
We are getting more and more lovely clothes never claimed in our lost property bin. Please try and name your child’s clothes especially coats, jumpers and shoes over the winter terms.
Potential strike action – heads up
Teachers are currently voting on a proposed strike action for 31 May. If this strike should go ahead the school will close on that day. This will also affect the school cross country which will then take place on 1 June instead.
