Welcome from the Principal

Welcome to Freeman’s Endowed Church of England Junior Academy, as Principal it is a privilege to give you an insight into the fantastic experiences and adventures that our children will encounter during their time with us.

At Freeman’s we aim to create strong, positive relationships and partnerships with every member of our community, staff, Governors, parents/carers and children. Our ethos is centred around our six Christian Values: Faith, Aspirations, Resilience, Forgiveness, Respect and Honesty.

We strive to create a learning environment that will inspire, motivate, stimulate and encourage our children through their own learning journey, a place where children can spread their wings and fly, having the opportunities to strive to be the best that they can be.

Thank you for visiting our website and I look forward to welcoming you to our school.

SATs Results 2018

We would like to celebrate the excellent effort made by all of our children in Year 6 and staff for the good results in this year’s Key Stage 2 SATs.  We are really pleased with the outcomes and, although there is still work to do, we are confident that this demonstrates the strides forwards that the school has made this year.

 

 

Spelling bee!

This morning, Miss Ellwood held another Freeman’s spelling bee. The children have taken part in class competitions over the last week and one winner from each class took part in the whole school competition. The words were very tricky and the children were so good that Miss Ellwood nearly ran out of words! Well done to our winners, Darcie and Serena.

 

Year 6 Production

Due to the once in a lifetime appearance of England in the semi-finals of the World Cup this Wednesday and Little Mix performing in Northampton on the following day, it has been decided to move the Year 6 production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream to Tuesday 17th July at 6pm.  the Leavers’ Disco will be rescheduled for Thursday 19th July.  Many apologies for any inconvenience caused, but we feel that this is the best solution for all involved.

Guitar Assembly

Today Glenn came in to share his guitar skills with the children and promote the lessons he will be providing at Freeman’s from September. The children really enjoyed the assembly especially getting the opportunity to sing Frozen’s ‘Let it go’.

Letters about the lessons will be coming out soon.

Safeguarding Alert

We have had an incident today where we believe we found a passer by using his camera to film the children. We immediately contacted the police who have been into school to look at our CCTV and I have spoken with the children to reassure them that they are safe in school. The police will be at school today at the end of the day as a precaution. Your child/children may wish to talk about this over the weekend as I know we had a few that were upset by the incident.

Open Afternoon

Dear Parents

Due to a sickness bug I am unable to be in school today to see you all at the open afternoon. As usual I know that the children and staff are really looking forward to you joining them and seeing what your children are learning at school at the moment. I wish you all a fantastic afternoon and apologies that I can’t be there to join in the fun.

Spelling bee!

This afternoon, the children have been trying out lots of different spelling activities as part of our spelling fun afternoon. Each class held a competition and the finalists competed against each other in a spelling bee. Miss Ellwood chose some difficult words but the children were fantastic. We had one winner from Lower Key Stage and one winner from Upper Key Stage pictured below. Well done Sennen and Euan!

New Term

Welcome back everyone. It was so nice to see the children this morning and we have already had a busy start to the term. We are focusing on spellings this term by introducing new initiatives to support the children, this mornings assembly was fantastic and the spellings were really hard …. thank you Miss Ellwood!!
The children will hopefully be coming home telling you about new spelling games and activities that they have started to play in morning and afternoon registration.

Gold Mentions

It was lovely to see so many parents at Gold Mentions this morning and to share all of our children’s successes. There are many things that the children and our staff have to be proud of and most importantly being a member of the Freeman’s family we have.

I wish you all a lovely Easter break with your families, rest up and I look forward to seeing you all back ready to make yourself and others proud on Tuesday 17th April.
