International Walk to School Day is a global event that involves communities from more than 40 countries walking and biking to school on the same day. It began in 1997 as a one-day event. Over time, this event has become part of a movement for year-round safe routes to school and a celebration – with record breaking participation – each October. Please support the children for International Walk to School Day:
Wednesday 8th October.
From Monday 6th until Thursday 9th October, we will be holding our regular Open Evenings in school. This is a great opportunity for you to find out how your child (or children!) has settled into their new class and meet their teacher. Please note that there will be no parents meetings held on WEDNESDAY 8th OCTOBER due to staff training taking place.
If you are unable to make your time or day, please contact school to rearrange a new time. As always, Mr Dinsdale will be available in the main office for anyone who would like to speak to him, as well as Mrs Jasper (Deputy Headteacher) and Mrs Ormrod (SENCO). We look forward to seeing you!
We're delighted to share the fact that we have been awarded the Primary Science Quality Mark Sliver Award for our innovate work in Science, evidenced last academic year. Mrs Fallon (Y5) expertly led the staff and pupils through the whole process and introduced Science pupil Ambassadors, Science Fayres and many other exciting events throughout the year.
Below is a quote from our feedback by Jane Turner, PSQM National Director:
Congratulations on your very well-deserved PSQM Silver Award. You have clearly worked hard to develop the quality of science at English Martyrs - well done!
