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.

Ms V Wallis-O’Dell

Principal

Please note that the county council website term dates do not include training days. We have training days on Tuesday 4th and Wednesday 5th September. School opens to pupils on Thursday 6th September.

Sorry for any confusion.

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.
