Welcome to Bishop's Hull Primary School
1. We are still in need of casual cover for our lunchtime staff and for our cleaners. If you are interested in being on our 'stand by' list then please download the letter giving details of how to apply.
2. Well done everyone, the May Fayre was a HUGE success. Thanks to the organisation group, thanks for the lovely weather, thanks to the country dancers, thanks for coming and thanks for spending your money! It was a very enjoyable afternoon and all the hard work paid off. Final amount raised - to be confirmed!
3. To help you understand what your children have to do to achieve each National Curriculum level in writing and in maths, we have linked some documents in the curriculum section. Please take a look!
4. There have been a number of holiday requests lately that state the reason for the holiday as, 'Grandparents have paid for the holiday as a surprise.' Unfortunately, under Government guidelines I cannot authorise a holiday under these circumstances as this is not a legitimate reason for it having to be taken in term time. Please talk to your own family members to ensure they don't book a holiday on your behalf in this way. Thank you.
5. We officially opened our all-weather play area today and had a cherry tree donated by the WI. Many thanks to everyone concerned!
From the Head Teacher:
"I would like to welcome you onto our school web-site. I hope the information it contains is helpful to you. My main aims for all children who join us at Bishop's Hull are as follows: they feel happy and safe they feel good about themselves they have fun while they learn they are enthusiastic learners they are successful in whatever fields they discover to be their strengths. Ofsted (July 2011) recognised that our school is, 'good and improving'. A typical parental comment quoted in the report said, 'I am extremely impressed with the school and my child is very happy, and her learning and progress are better than I imagined.' Another wrote, 'The enthusiasm shown by staff is second to none. The children respect each other and always seem well behaved and happy. Any concerns are addressed and dealt with promptly.' The inspectors commented, 'All pupils make good progress.' They go on to say that this is, '...a result of good teaching.' On the subject of behaviour, the report states that, 'Pupils enjoy school. Their behaviour is good and often outstanding.' Bishop's Hull Primary School provides a rich and relevant learning experience for all persons associated with the school. Fundamental to our school philosophy is the belief that learning is a life long process which is an active partnership between students, parents, staff, governors, pre-school, nurseries, secondary schools and the local community. I believe Bishop's Hull Primary School to be a fun place to learn and I would be delighted to show you around our very successful school." - Ralph Bullock
From our House Captains: "Welcome to our school website, we are the House Captains from our four Houses – Blackdown, Brendon, Mendip and Quantock. We would like to tell you why we think our school is fantastic. The children at our school are very friendly and offer help to anyone if they are feeling upset. Children make good friends quickly and enjoy learning together in the classroom, when we are out and about on the school grounds or when we are on trips. We have fun in all subjects! The teachers are nice and friendly, just like the children and they give us lots of fun activities to do. We especially like it when we are mixed up and we work with children of different ages in our Houses or in our Key Stages. The facilities the school has are really good and we have lots of areas to play in at playtime. Different people come into school to entertain us – story tellers, theatre companies, scientists, wildlife experts etc. There are also coaches who help us to learn different sports. Do look at what our School Forum has been up to. By the way, we decided on this name rather than calling it a School Council because we wanted to be a little different! We hope you like our website and it would be great to meet you if you came to look around."
E-Safety: Is your child safe on the internet or when using a mobile phone? Are you? We do lots in school about this very important area and to help you at home I recently gave you all the publication, ‘Digital Parenting’. There is lots of very useful information in the magazine so please take time to read it carefully and talk about e-safety at home. Please keep it safe as a reference point.
