End of Term Holiday|
The schools will close at 2pm on Friday 24th March for the end of term holiday. I hesitate to call it the Easter holiday as we will be returning to school on Monday 10th April i.e. Holy week which leads up to the Easter Weekend. The Feeder schools of St Augustine's have coordinated their holiday patterns in order to minimise disruption for families with children at a feeder primary and at High School. Easter is relatively late this year and our normal holiday pattern - two weeks following the Easter weekend - would have taken schools right into the exam season. However, we have maintained the tradition of working during Holy Week in accordance with Diocesan guidance.
Workmen will be arriving at both schools during the holiday period. Hopefully, they will complete the project at St Hubert's School before our return. However, the building project at St Wulstan's will last until July and parents are asked to be extra vigilant when arriving at school next term. The letter below - see St Wulstan's 'Letters you may have missed' - provides details of the project.
Meanwhile, have a happy and restful break. Children - stay safe and always listen to your parents' instructions and we will see you back in school on Monday 10th April 2017.
St Wulstan's School was inspected by Ofsted on Tuesday 21st February 2017. The HMI conducting the inspection was Mrs Shirley Gornall accompanied by Ms Nusret Ellahi.
I am delighted to inform you that the report is now available for publication and is given as an aattachment to this item. The School was inspected under Section 8 of the Education Act 2005 which means that Inspectors are looking to see if the school retains the previous judgement of Good.
The headline statement of the report read, 'The School Continues to be Good'

My thanks and congratulations to the children, families and staff for creating an atmosphere in which, to quote from the report, there is "A thirst for learning among pupils at St Wulstan's who evidently Believe to Achieve"
