Dear Parents and Carers, We can’t believe another year has passed. Here we are at the end of another successful year at Carterhatch Infant School. There have been so many exciting activities and events throughout the year. As ever, we are thankful to the staff for their dedication and enthusiasm in organising such a broad range of experiences. These experiences and memories will hopefully stay with your children for many years to come. A big thank you also to parents and carers for supporting us and your children in a variety of ways; it really makes a difference when you are involved in school life in one way or another. Sadly, there are some goodbyes as people move on to the next chapter in their lives. Cindy, one of our Nursery Teachers, is venturing into a new role in another school. We are really thankful for her passion and commitment in supporting our children and families in the time she has been with us. Gabby Brobyn, one of our Learning Assistants, is looking forward to a new challenge in another career. Gabby has been with us for four years in Nursery and now Year 1. We would like to wish her lots of luck in her new role and thank her for all her hard work in supporting our children. We would like to say a huge thank you to Gwen Demicol, our Nurture Class Learning Assistant, for the nineteen years she has given to our school. All the work, dedication and passion in her role has truly given our children the best start in life! We wish her well and hope she will visit us with her lovely baby Grandson! Finally goodbye to our Year 2 children and their families. It has been a pleasure having your children in our school and we wish them all the best for the future. We look forward to hearing about how they are doing in Year 3. Have a super break with your wonderful children and we look forward to seeing you back on Tuesday 4th September.

Learning Power Buddies:

Introducing our forth Learning Power Buddy’, Charlie Challenge! As you know the children have spent some of their ‘Time to Talk’ sessions thinking about skills we need to help us learn and creating characters to help us remember. Charlie Challenge and friends have the power to do the following;

  • Challenge themselves to try new things.
  • Challenge themselves to things that they find difficult.
  • Don’t worry if things go wrong.
  • Learn from mistakes.

At home you could help with encouraging your child to try new things and things they find difficult. Also to give them lots of praise even if things do not go to plan.


Introducing our fifth and final Learning Power Buddy’, Collaboration Cruz! Collaboration Cruz and friends has the power to do the following;

  • Listen to others ideas.
  • Be kind and repectful when you disagree.
  • To help others.

At home you could help by encouraging good teamwork to complete a task or a chore together e.g laying the table together, clearing up after dinner.
