"BJS is a brilliant school. My child is thriving and thoroughly enjoying his time with you. Keep up the good

m/BiltonCofEJNR I could not ask for a more caring leadership team".

@BiltonCofEJNR I also welcomed the suggestions of how we can improve. We apologise for amount of text
messages and will try to send only those which hold essential information. We try to give as
much advance info about non uniform and discos in the bulletin and via Facebook and Twitter.

If you need to talk to a teacher please ask at the office and they will get the teacher to give you a ring
back. Most teachers are available at the end of the day if it something that is really urgent and needs
attention. Pop up to the office if you are able at the end of the day. I am sure teachers prefer face to
face chats as well as parents.

I take your point about assemblies and offering more opportunity for parents to come in to see what
children have been up to. I will have a think about how logistically this can be done. Currently year
groups are trying to give opportunity to share work through galleries at the end of a topic or some
other way of inviting you in.

Challenging able pupils should be done as a matter of course. We follow a 'Mastery style' curriculum
where children are encouraged to ask questions and think deeply about problems. This is not
necessarily completing pages and pages of sums but being able to explain themselves and their thinking
in different contexts. We of course value your opinion and you are welcome to discuss challenge with
your child's class teacher.

Thanks again,

Mrs Norton

It can take Big Battery Hunt
batteries 100
years to Help your child to collect as many used batteries (of the types AAA, AA, C and D) as you can and
decompose! add them to your Battery Recycling Box.

Please bring batteries into school for Mrs. Thompson. Remember to return your competition slip
for a chance to win some great prizes, if you need a copy please let the school office know. The
recycling battery challenge is running all term.


Well done to Sycamore House who won the Time Keeper's Award with

We do understand that this week you many have had to deal with frozen
windscreens and the various sets of traffic lights around town as our
staff experience the same challenges however, please make sure your child is
