Image of Building for now and the future

It's been a while since I last wrote and so many exciting things have taken place.

Please read the school newsletters on our Home page to see everything that has happened (too many to go over here!)

The main highlights for me over the last few weeks have been the 'big move' of a number of our classes into the current one Millbrook building as the Shawbrook building was getting ready to demolish. The demolition took place in February and the children were able to witness the end of an era as the building came down. We are now witnessing the foundations being laid for our new eco-friendly school building that will take us into the next fifty years + of providing high quality education to all pupils. 

It is hoped the building will be completed towards the end of 2025 but in the meantime I am so proud of the children, staff and families who have adjusted to the temporary move to our current classes and the children are continuing to thrive.

There are several opportunities coming up linked to the new build including visiting the site (safely), the visit of 'Charlie Conlon' to our Health and Safety assembly and careers talks later in the year with some of our older pupils.

We have said goodbye to a number of wonderful staff over the last few months and hello to new wonderful staff. Everyone is so committed to the children of Seven Stars and it is a privilege working with every one of them.

We are in the process of reviewing all our behaviour & anti-bullying systems in school (as most schools are at the moment) to help our children to learn well, care well and live well. Our key Learning Powers are Concentration, Participation, Resilience and Pride and we are also spending a lot of time teaching and focusing on each of our seven school values (see our values page for more information).

As we move into the Summer term we are starting to see the sun shine and hopefully dry out our field in time for the Sports days and so our children can start to get out there during OPAL.

It's been a fantastic few months and I am sure the final few weeks in school are going to create further memories and embed more learning for all our children. Thank you for all your support
