Staff Changes in nursery and panda classes

We are sad to be losing Rebecca Rohr from Snowleopards next week, as she has a new job with the local authority which she will be moving on to. Rebecca has been a fantastic lead in the nursery and prior to that, a brilliant TA in Panda and Tiger classes. We will really miss her as part of the staff team and wish her every success with her next venture. We hope to fill this role with a permanent member of staff from January. Up until then, the position will be filled by Liz Leese. Liz and Fran have previously worked together at Baschurch delivering forest school sessions. Liz is a qualified teacher, a forest school leader and has extensive experience in nurseries. We look forward to welcoming her to Myddle.

In January, when Mrs McGrath begins her maternity leave, Claire Mayle, the current teaching assistant in Panda class, will be teaching Panda class Mondays-Wednesdays, alongside Mrs Turner who will be doing Thursdays and Fridays.  Claire is also a qualified teacher – we feel very lucky to have such high calibre staff in our Early Years here at Myddle! We have appointed Liz Leese to be Panda’s teaching assistant when Mrs Mayle starts teaching. They have also worked together before at Baschurch Pre-school, so should help everyone settle into their new roles nicely.

In summary:

Snowleopards: Monday 21st Nov – January: Liz Leese and Fran Jones (Fridays – Clare Evans and Fran Jones)

January 2023 – new permanent nursery lead and Fran Jones

Pandas:            January until end of maternity – Mrs Mayle / Mrs Turner  (Teachers) and Liz Leese  (TA)

Y4,5 and 6 football matches

Well done to the 8 pupils in Y4, 5 and 6 who represented Myddle in two football games after school today. They played some great football and developed in confidence and organisation as the games progressed, with 1-0 and 3-1 victories.

School & PTA volunteering morning!!

We are holding a volunteering morning in school, where we can look at creating a gardening area on the field. The plan is for it to take place on Saturday, 12th November, 10am until 12pm. If we are able and have a few volunteers, we could also perhaps have a pruning session and a tidy up??

If you have any gardening equipment, trowels, small forks etc, or compost at home that you no longer need, these would be a great help to get this area up and running.

Mrs Turner will be leading this adventure so please pop and have a chat with her if you have any questions.

Thank you in advance.

Myddle CE Primary School Ofsted Report November 2022

To all our families,

We are very pleased to have received our final Ofsted report following our recent inspection on November 18th.

We hope you agree that it really reflects the wonderful staff and children at Myddle. The inspectors were impressed with how we prioritise the whole child, through all of our music, art, trips, clubs and opportunities, alongside really robust teaching of the core subjects. As well as a Deep Dive into maths and reading, Ofsted also conducted a Deep Dive into how we teach MFL (Spanish) and were extremely impressed with the teaching and learning, the curriculum and progression. They praised the behaviour and attitudes of the children and the subject knowledge and dedication of all staff.

We are delighted with the report and our result;  it is a culmination of all the hard work over the last few years in order to meet the ever-changing expectations of the government, as well as keeping true to our own ethos. On the day, the inspectors saw what we do, day in, day out and to be judged as ‘good’ is something we are all very proud of.

Thank you for your on-going support for the school – we receognise that this success is a partnership between school, home, governors and the community.

Mrs Williams and Mr Glover
