Dr Walker's Church of England Primary School

An Exceptional Place to Flourish

Message Board for Parents


'Star of the Week' will continue while children are learning remotely (thank you to the parent who suggested it laugh). On a Friday, in the 'Collective Worship' folder I will post a video about that week's 'Star of the Week'. It could be a child in school or someone learning remotely. If they are learning from home, I will email you a certificate and a link to a short video to play to them. It would be great if you could take a picture of your child with their certificate and send it over to so it can be shared on Twitter and on the website. Please don't feel you have to print the certificate. So, without further ado, I'm off to announce this week's 'Star of the Week'...heart


Today, Gavin Williamson has officially announced that Key Stage 2 SATs will not be taking place this year. This will be a relief for children who, despite already working hard towards their end of year assessments, will not face any added pressure. In terms of the learning set, they will continue with structured lessons to complete at home to ensure they are still secondary school ready for September. 


It was so lovely to speak with you all today. It's great to hear how well the children are getting on in school and at home - a huge thank you to you all! If I didn't get a chance to speak with you on the phone today and you'd still like a call, email and I will arrange another time to call you this week. Next week, on Thursday 14th of January, I will call you for a parent consultation meeting. If you would prefer a morning or afternoon call, please let me know and I'll do my best to make this possible.
