School New#8

Dear Parents and Carers,

Thank you for your support over the last few weeks, it has been challenging managing the Covid wave that has hit school, but the good news is it looks like we are over the worse. There have been a few new cases this week: Reception -1 case, Year 2- 1 case, Year 4 – 2 cases, Year 5- 1 case and Year 6 - 1 case. As you will also be aware, we do have Chicken Pox in school mainly in Year 1 and 2.


The Weetwood Values

Over the last few weeks we have been learning about determination and tolerance. The postcard winners for Determination and the children who will be rewarded with a postcard are: Rehan (Y6) and Harry (Y6), Ruby (Y5), Harry (Y4), Charlotte (Y3), Elliot (Y2), Iona (Y1) and Raiya (YR). Look out for the postcards coming through this weekend! Well done to everyone demonstrating the school values throughout the week, keep up the hard work.


Children’s Mental Health Week

Next week we will be taking part in Children’s Mental Health Week. The theme of the week is Growing Together, and the children will be encouraged to consider how they have grown, both physically and emotionally, and how we can help each other to grow. The children will be taking part in mindfulness activities during the week and sharing ways to look after their mental health.

We will be having a ‘Dress To Express Yourself’ day on Friday 11th February. The children will be encouraged to wear clothing to express how they are feeling. They may wear their favourite colour, sports kits or a unique outfit as a form of self-expression.


Year 5 – Climate Change


Year 5 were lucky to be part of an author event this week hosted by Leeds Library Service. The class listened to the author, Georgina Stevens, who told them about the inspiration for her book on climate change. She explained to the class how they can play their part to slow down climate change and help the planet.

Can anybody help us?

We are keen to rejuvenate the outside railings that surround school. The quote we received was quite expensive and I am looking for more cost effective ways to improve the aesthetics of the school grounds. Does anyone belong to a business who could take this on as a project day? If you think you can help, please catch me at the gate, message on Dojo or email the bursar email


Parent Survey

It is important to me that we continue to flourish and improve as a school. I would like to hear your views on school and how you think we can improve further. Please complete the Google form by to share your views. If you prefer to have a paper copy please collect one from the school office.
