October 2017

I do hope that the children have enjoyed the first few weeks of the new academic year – we have achieved so much already and I hope that you will enjoy reading about some of these achievements in this newsletter. 

We welcome Mrs Paula Mould to Chantry who will be teaching Miss Said's timetable when she is absent on extended leave. Miss Said is progressing well and we are very grateful for the messages of support from parents. Thank you. 

It has been lovely to see so many of you in school for the Macmillan Coffee Morning and for the Year 5 Maths Lunches that have already took place. I do hope that you will be able to attend the Parents Forum at 1.30pm on Thursday 19th October for a cup of coffee and discussion with me if you have any questions or concerns. Please remember to contact the school office if you intend to attend.

Prior to the summer holidays we were informed that Chantry had been chosen as one of three schools in Northumberland to be part of the exciting Mini Police Programme. Over 80 children in Year 5 applied to be part of this programme but unfortunately there were only 10 places. Congratulations to Scout, Ryan, Rhys, Andrew, Kody, Lara, Matthew, Lucy, Jess & Vsevolod who were chosen as our Ambassadors. Watch this space for more details shortly!

Please remember that Friday 20th October is a Teacher Training Day. School will close on Thursday 19th October for the October half term at 3.30 pm and reopen on Monday 30th October at 8.55 am. Please remember that all the holiday dates are displayed in your child’s student planner and on the website.
 
The November newsletter will be published on Friday 3rd November. Watch out for it in your inbox. A paper copy will be given to your child if you do not have an email address on our system.

Head of School 

 
Attendance
Whole School Attendance for the academic year 2016/17 was 96.4%, up from 96.2% in 2015/16. We would like like to improve this statistic this year and would appreciate your help to work with us in achieve this. We have set a target of 97% for all year groups.


Attendance for the period 5th - 29th September is 97.3% ( compared to 97.4% last year) and class attendance as follows; 

 
5B 5I 5N 5R 6C 6L 6W 6S
97.2% 99.4% 97.6% 98.2% 97.7% 97.9% 98.1% 97.8%
7M 7S 7W 7H 8O 8S 8N 8J
99% 97.9% 98.5% 97.1% 93.2% 96.5% 98.6% 95.2%

Please remember that, there are statutory arrangements in place for term time absences as dictated by the Government.  Schools MAY NOT grant any leave of absence during term time unless there are exceptional circumstances.  We will consider each request individually taking into account the circumstances, such as the nature of the event for which leave is sought along with the pupil’s attendance and ability to catch up on missing schooling.
 
Please continue to submit a holiday form which should be sent into school for the attention of Mrs Sarah Chattaway, our Home School Link Worker 
 
We would also ask that you make doctor and dental appointments out of school hours if at all possible.


STEM Week
Miss Edwards would like to know if any parents or friends of the school would be willing to give up valuable time to work with students in the STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths). In March 2017 we will once again be staging a range of events to raise the profile of STEM.  You could give a careers talk or simply talk about what your job entails or perhaps provide resources for practicals. Thank you in anticipation! Please contact Miss Edwards for further information.  

Homework policy
The school's homework policy and your child’s homework timetable is on the school website in the parents section. There is also a section where a description of the Maths and English homework is given. All students have been given a homework book in English and Maths and this should come home at least once a week.

All students should be reading their accelerated reader reading book, be learning their spellings and times tables every evening. 

If you have any questions about homework please contact your child’s subject teacher.

Admissions 
If you have a child in Year 4 or Year 8, may we remind you that you need to request a place at Chantry or the King Edward VI School by 31st October 2017. Please visit 
www.northumberland.gov.uk, for further information.
 
Can we also remind you that if you apply online you will receive an email to confirm this.  Please ensure that you have received this as a couple of years ago, one parent thought they has applied online but this was not the case. She then had four months of waiting for the decision. It was good news in the end!

If you are applying for a place at Chantry it is essential that you choose Newminster as your second choice as we expect demand for places to be very high. 

Please contact Mr Johnson if you have any questions. 
 
Open Evening
Thank you to those parents who attended our Open Day on Wednesday. Your comments are really appreciated. If you know of anyone who was unable to make the Open Day and they need a tour of the school before completing their preference form, please contact the school office to arrange a tour with Mr Johnson. 

Comments from pupils and parents are as follows:


" Good activities in a relaxed atmosphere. Teachers very informative and students happy and well behaved."

Linking to the health and wellbeing of our students we have designed whole school projects to encourage individuality and uniqueness.

We have based the project on a book called 'Only One You'.

 
Project with the Royal Opera House
Pupils at Chantry Middle School will be joining Blue Peter presenter Radzi Chinyanganya, as he goes on a journey with The Royal Ballet into Peter Wright's production of The Nutcracker.  During this course the pupils will examine the basics of motif-development, character dancing and performance skills - completing the programme with your very own piece of choreography.

Please remember that if you have any questions about school lunches, please contact Alison Hoyle, Catering Manager, through the school office.

Safety reminders 
Can you please remind your child to cross with Mr Henderson, outside the school gates and not at the top of the road – this is for their own safety!
 
I would also be grateful if you could not park on Mitford Road if at all possible. May I also kindly remind you that cars should not be driving onto the school drive unless you have permission from Mr Johnson.

Year 5 Fire Station Visits
5I and 5B have recently spent an afternoon at Pegswood Fire Station as part of our Citizenship programme.  They had an amazing afternoon which included a tour round the Fire Station, a ride in the fire engine with blue lights flashing, squirting objects with the hose and a visit down a training sewer and fire damaged room.  Cameron in 5I commented, "This has been amazing. The best day of my life!"  The other two Year 5 classes will be visiting over the forthcoming weeks.
 
Many thanks to the personnel at the Fire Station for making this such a memorable day.

Sport

Rugby Newsletter Sept 2017
The first game of the new season took place on Wednesday 20th September versus Mowden Hall. Following some excellent training the boys were victorious winning 50-0, a truly remarkable effort in the first game and one to boost the confidence of the players.
 
 
Over the next few weeks we have a number of games coming up including our first ever U11 game as a 3 Rivers Team. The training numbers over the last few weeks have been immense so please keep coming down and joining in.
 
 
The Football season is underway and it is the U12's who have started as they left off last year.
 
They have played two cup matches so far winning the first against Newminster 4-1 and the second against a strong Blyth Academy team 6-0 with some excellent performances.
 
The U13 began their season with a league match against St Benet Biscop and lost 7-1 to a very good side.
 
Numbers are good with over 60 turning out across the school for the boys.
 
Girls football begins with a tournament for both the U11's and U13's with numbers very good so far at training it should be a good season for both teams.

Chantry Netball
The U13 Netball league has begun with Chantry getting off to a brilliant start winning 6-3 against Richard Coates Middle School (league winners last year!) and 21-5 against Ashington Academy.
 
We currently have five lunch time netball clubs running at Chantry
