Article excerpt

AS half-term approaches we are pleased to say many of our projects for the beginning of term have become exciting realities and there is a real sense of energy around school as we embark on our next round of plans. NPS is a school which really doesn't stand still.

This term we have been proud to welcome Anne Fine, author of many well-known children's books including Madame Doubtfire, to officially open our wonderful new library The Trove.

The day was one which we will all remember, as Anne Fine revealed what treasure lay beneath the covers of some of her most riveting and entertaining stories.

She commented on how encouraging it was to see such a well-designed and thoughtful library which lay at the centre of the school and was contributing to a sense of excitement about reading for all our children at NPS.

We certainly agree, as this library has something for everyone.

Creativity and imagination are at the very heart of what we do best at NPS and The Trove is full of treasure just waiting to be discovered.

An amazing Forest School is ready to explore and our curious, eager children are benefitting from a fully refurbished and equipped Art Studio which can't fail to inspire all our budding artists.

As children begin to embrace this exciting term we recently welcomed all our new parents into the NPS family by hosting a special supper.

At NPS we believe in putting into practice the building of positive partnerships with parents and are always looking at the best ways to get to know each other in a variety of settings.

Every member of our school community matters to us at NPS.

All Year groups, from First Steps Nursery right through to Year six, are being inspired by the great outdoors and there couldn't be a better time of year in which to be inspired by nature.

The possibilities of our Forest School are endless.

Whether it be den building, storytelling around our fire pit, outdoor maths, survival skills or drama, there is something for everyone.

Our year six children are relishing their new roles of responsibilities.

Being the oldest children in the school, they are actively encouraged to develop their leadership and collaborative skills to help prepare them for their important transition into senior school. Our yer six pupils always rise to a challenge and their levels of confidence and maturity always make us feel very proud.

In Year two and year five a special 'Buddy 'trip based on a castles' topic took place.

It's a trip which reflects one of NPS' core beliefs - that good working relationships are important and everyone should feel valued and cared for. …
