8th December

Saturday 8th of December 2018
The highlight of this week was our first Christmas Concert at Christ the Cornerstone Church on Thursday. We were joined by the Mayor, many parents, carers, grandparents and friends of the school. Due to our rise in numbers we did not take the whole school as the pupils in Early Years and some primary classes will walk to St Mary’s Church, Woughton on the Green on Wednesday for their special concert. Thank you though to all who came on Thursday we raised £130 in donations – this is very...

1st December

Saturday 1st of December 2018
As I sit and write it’s hard to believe that we are now in December – how did 2018 pass so quickly? This week, several classes have been on their end of term Christmas outings and have had a lovely time – others will be going out over the forthcoming weeks.  From the photographs I have seen from the visits so far, the looks on our pupils faces demonstrate they had a wonderful time. Verity took a group of pupils to a Boccia tournament where they met with pupils from other...

24th November

On Monday we held our Parents Consultation Afternoon, which was well attended. We were pleased with all the positive comments from parents and carers about the work that we do. It’s always good to have these discussions about how your son / daughter is at school and the work that we have been doing. We had a visitor  - all the way from America this week. Nate, who used to teach at The Redway and his daughter came and spent a morning in school, catching up with staff and those pupils whom he...

Calvert Trust Residential November 12th – 16th 2018 One a balmy November morning, November 12th, a group of pupils and staff set out for the drive down to Exmoor, Devon to The Calvert Trust. The traffic was favourable to us; we had our usual lunch stop at Swindon services and finally arrived on time at 4pm. Working in two groups we enjoyed a week of challenges, different experiences and teamwork as well as having fun. We climbed, abseiled, went on the zip wire and high ropes, rose to the...

Children in Need

Saturday 17th of November 2018
As always, The Redway School supported the BBC’s Children in Need fundraising campaign.  We raised an amazing £519.90. Staff embraced this years theme of ‘jazzy leggings and loud shirts!’ as did the pupils some of whom did their own thing! There were spots everywhere! The school was awash with colour as our bunting is still up in memory of our heroes of the First World War and looks spectacular. Transitions café sold their usual range of cakes and other...

17th November

Saturday 17th of November 2018
A slightly different week this week. I was on residential with a group of pupils and staff at The Calvert Trust in Devon. All pupils and staff really excelled – we were well supported in our two groups by Cat, Tyler and John. The weather was kind to us - amazingly so for November. Back at school arrangements have been sorted for our new bucket swing and other items to be installed at the rear of school just left of Brabham Classroom. We are thrilled with this as it will make a huge difference to...
