The staff and governors would like to wish all pupils, parents and friends of Aldington Primary a very enjoyable and relaxing summer break. We look forward to welcoming all pupils back to school on Thursday 3rd September.
Primary School Athletics Competition.
On Saturday 11th July, children from year 3,4,5 and 6 took part in the annual ‘Primary School Athletics’ competition at the Julie Rose Stadium in Ashford.
Children took part in variety of track and field events: Mega Howler throw, Target Throw, Standing Long Jump, 400m Run, Sprints and Relays.
All the children competed well and contributed to the overall success of the morning. The team spirit and encouragement they showed; not only to their team but other competitors was a credit to them and our school.
Aldington finished second overall which is a fantastic achievement.
Thank you to parents, carers and staff who were involved and well done to all our competitors.
Well done to Dover House who were the winning house on Sports Day this year.
They have become the proud winners of The Meadway Trophy for 2015.
Thank you to those parents and families who were able to attend the Assessment meeting on Tuesday 30th June. The meeting was held because this is such an important issue which is the result of the significant changes the DfE have made to both the National Curriculum and the assessment system. It is also important as the information shared will help parents and carers to understand the information coming out in the school reports next week.
I appreciate this is not the same as hearing the information first hand therefore, do please raise any questions you have directly with me. I am aware there is some misinformation being shared which will only create unnecessary anxiety for parents and carers.
