It is essential that all pupils bring their PE or swimming kit on the correct day.  Too many pupils forget and this means time is lost for everyone.  Both PE and swimming are part of the national curriculum and are not optional.  If your child/ren is/are in school they are expected to participate.

Wristband scheme

At Murrayfield Primary Academy, we are now running a Wristband scheme. This scheme has been run successfully at our London schools and today is the first chance pupils have of receiving a red wristband. Pupils can earn this by completing two full weeks of attendance between 11th and 22nd September.

On Monday morning during the assembly, we will be celebrating the students success by awarding 279 pupils their first award out of a possible 350 eligible. This equates to almost 80%! We are very proud of the fantastic attendance from our pupils and are looking forward to handing out more bands as the weeks progress. Any pupils who have not received a red band yet can start again on Monday. Pupils who already have a red band can now begin to go for the next colour band.

Appointing an interim principal

I would like to give you an update on what the Board of Directors has decided in terms of leadership for Murrayfield Primary Academy. We have advertised internally within Paradigm Trust for an interim principal for the school. This appointment will be until December 2018.

From our early conversations we know that there are a number of people at Murrayfield and from across the Trust who would be enthusiastic about this opportunity, so we are expecting a good choice of quality applicants. We hope to make the appointment by the end of June so that you, as parents and carers, are clear about who is leading the school. The successful candidate will work very closely with Bill Holledge and myself to ensure a smooth transition and to continue the school’s journey of school improvement.

David Willis
Chair of the Board
