Goat Lees Primary School, Ashford

Welcome back!

Term 5 2015-16

Welcome back to Term 5. I can hardly believe that we are now making arrangements for our new Reception intake in September 2016 and we are looking forward to meeting our new families very soon. Although this term's focus is very much on assessment as our children take part in the National SATs tests, we continue to offer a broad and balanced curriculum. We recognise that all of our children have strengths and talents and the SATs tests only assess a small part of what a child can do. I am always delighted to present certificates for sporting achievements and other interests both in and beyond the school as our ethos is very much about developing the whole child. With this in mind, our FLO, Mrs Shepherd, is available for appointments and is always willing to help support, providing an invaluable link between home and school. 

Once again, the Friends of Goat Lees are organising a Summer Fair and we look forward to seeing our families and the local community joining together for what has always been an enjoyable event. Of course, we will be hoping to repeat the good weather of the last two years.
We will be sharing pictures of our activities on our website during, the term, so look out for updates. The school website is also having a facelift and is being upgraded to ensure that it works effectively with new technology as we know that many people use their phones and tablets to access our site. We hope to share this with you soon.

To ensure that we are able to support parents, we have added the key dates for the year to the website in order to help you plan ahead. Please click here to access these dates.
Once again, welcome back everybody.
