On Friday 28th June, Paradigm Trust will be holding its annual sports day at Ipswich Academy. Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 students from Murrayfield Primary Academy will be involved and be will representing their class throughout the day. Pupils will be leaving MPA at 09:00 and will return for the end of the day at 15:05.
Students are expected to come to school in their school PE kit, which is black shorts/tracksuit bottoms, white PE shirt and suitable trainers. Students are not allowed to come in their own sportswear or be wearing jewellery. Pupils with long hair must ensure that it is tied back. These are our standard expectations in PE.
Students must ensure they bring enough water with them. Please note that fizzy drinks are not permitted. Students will be responsible for their own belongings, so we recommend that no valuables are brought to school. We would also advise all students to bring a hat and sun cream. All children need a packed lunch. Children entitled to free school meals will be provided with a packed lunch.
Parents of the Murrayfield Primary Academy are welcome to attend the morning events (9:30am-12:30pm), although there will be limited numbers of sports day tickets available. Please note that if you wish to attend on the day only adults with a sports day ticket will be allowed entrance. Please send a note to the school office where your name will be put in a hat. Those who are randomly selected will be informed if they have a ticket. Parents will have to make their own seating arrangements in the designated area near to the athletics track.
We will be holding our sports day for nursery, reception, year 1 and year 2 pupils on the morning of Tuesday 9th July. This is a change to the day given in the latest newsletter due to KS1 pupils visiting Colchester Zoo next week, not leaving enough time to set up the activities for sports day if it remained the following day.
Pupils need to arrive to school in their uniform with their PE kit. Please ensure that, on the day, your child comes to school prepared to be outside for the majority of the morning. Keep an eye on the weather forecast and provide hats, a water bottle, and apply suncream if necessary.
It would be great to see parents and families coming along to support their child(ren) taking part. The events will start at 9.30 am so please arrive to the school reception between 9.15 am and 9.30 am where you will be escorted to viewing areas.
A reminder that school is closed to pupils on Wednesday 14th November due to staff training. Pupils should return to school at the normal time on Thursday 15th November.

Appointment of Neil Winn as permanent principal of Murrayfield
I am very pleased to announce that Neil Winn has been appointed as Murrayfield Primary’s permanent principal.
Neil became interim principal in June last year following the death of Amanda Phillips. He took on his new role quickly and effectively, helping the Murrayfield community get over the shock of Amanda’s loss. Since then, he has worked hard to improve the school’s teaching and results while delivering the excellent education that every pupil deserves.
The board of directors ran a full recruitment process to select the permanent principal for Murrayfield and, based on that process, Neil was their unanimous choice. We are confident that Murrayfield will continue to go from strength to strength under Neil’s leadership.
I hope you will join me in congratulating Neil on his appointment.
CEO, Paradigm Trust
