    2019/20 Newsblog Term 1 Week 6

    Hello All

    What a wet period of weather we have been having! - please could you make sure children have waterproof coats with them everyday - please ensure that the coats are named clearly and somewhere where the children know to look at as, as I’m sure you can imagine, we have many duplicates.  Last week saw the school studying scientifically;  building our understanding of Uganda and the new link we are making with a partner school there and working out ways of supporting our well-being as part of Mental Health Awareness Day - the school was flooded with a sea of happy yellow colours that day - thank you for supporting your child to feel part of this and for the donations you made - more news on that next week.

    Reminder Friends of Tadpole Farm AGM
    I have put in details of the Friends group, our version of a Parent Teacher Association, again, as we have a dedicated small band of people who ran this last year but a school of our size should be able to get a core committee of 15, with another 10-20 people happy to take on one off roles… please support this wonderful group, who do so much for your children - we want our community to live and breathe the school values of service, generosity, friendship and to show this in the way we work together.  If you can’t make the meeting then please get in touch with the committee, details below, to show your appreciation of all they have done and the offer of support you can give in the coming year - thank you. 
    Our AGM will be taking place on Wednesday 16th October at 7pm at school, please come in by the main entrance and we will direct you to the meeting.

    The meeting will discuss last year's events, monies raised, next year's events, key roles within the committee and any offers of volunteers/committee members.
    It's really easy to get involved, you don't need to have loads of time to give we have many roles that take very little time.

    This year we are hoping to get enough people on board to do different roles all year round for example, used uniform resales, raffle prize co-ordinator, class reps for each year group, raffle ticket sales co-ordinator, sponsorship facilitator etc

    We are hoping to go with the 'many hands make light work' approach!
    All the money raised through the FOTF go back into school to provide equipment and experiences that enrich our children's time at school.
    Coming up this year............. Rock n Roll Bingo, Christmas Cards, Carols by Candlelight refreshments, Christmas Raffle, Santa Visit, Easter Disco, Scarecrow Trial and The Summer Fayre!!
    Please come along and have your say, if you can't make the meeting please drop us an email using fotf@tadpolefarmcepa.co.uk to share your thoughts and ideas.

    Parents Meetings Reminder
    Parents meeting are being held over the next two weeks, see above calendar for dates - you should all have had your appointment time confirmed when you booked - if you didn’t book then a time has now been allocated to you.  There is one appointment slot for each child - where parents are separated and, for whatever reason are unable to come to the same appointment slot, we suggest that one parent comes for the face-to-face meeting and we will make a phone call to the other parent in the next two weeks; then we suggest you swap around for the Feb/March meeting. We do have a significant number of families that this situation applies to and we need to respect the work/life balance of our teachers by restricting the meeting slots to one per child. 

    Football Match Report
    Another week, another game and this time we took the short trip across Tadpole Lane to face Red Oaks. With our Y6's returning from residential, we were able to field a team of both Y5’s and 6's and the boys got off to a great start. Owain had the best chance before he was able to square the ball to Kaden to get his first goal of the game. More opportunities followed, with chances from Zack, Owain and Kaden narrowly missing the target; the boys went in at the break 1-0 up. 
    An early second half goal then followed, as Kaden grabbed his second of the game, after a good counter attack from midfield. We were nearly rewarded again as some great play between Joseph and Connor was thwarted only by the post. However, we were soon cheering again as some great solo play from Joseph saw him smash the ball into the back of the net, leaving the keeper little chance of keeping the ball out. Harley then had some excellent chances to make the scoreline even greater; however his efforts only just missed the target. It wasn't long before we were cheering again, as Kaden managed to grab his hat trick and saw us four nil to the good. It was Red Oaks who finished the stronger team, as they constantly came on the attack but were only to be frustrated by our 'defensive rock,' Zack, who for 35 minutes worked tirelessly to prevent Red Oaks from scoring. Sadly though Red Oaks did manage to score in a very strange circumstance, as the ball was adjudged to have crossed the line after hitting the post and going in before being stopped by Muhammad, unfortunately there was no VAR in this game, so the goal stood. 
    Despite conceding late on, it shouldn't hinder the boys performance as they worked so hard to gain the vital three points. Also a BIG thank you to all the parents for their continued support in arranging lifts to the away fixtures; without your help we wouldn't be able to play.
    Mr Spencer and Miss Wood 

    Parent Elected Member of our Local Board - Request for Nominations
    Just a reminder - please get involved and make a difference - from last week’s blog - see last week for more details … If you would like to stand for election please complete the emailed nomination form and return it to the school. You may also include a short personal statement to support your nomination, which should be no longer than 100 words.
    The closing date for nominations is 12 noon on 18/10/2019.

    Eco-Committee Update - Crisp Packets
    Please keep collecting your crisp packets and send them into school over the coming weeks. We are continuing to collect them to be recycled to raise money for the Wiltshire Air Ambulance. Schools in Swindon have raised £11728.00 over the last 6 months from donations, so please keep them coming! Thank you! 



    Lunch Boxes Reminder re No Nuts/Sweets
    Just a reminder - please do not send sweets or any nut based products in lunch boxes.  We have children in school with allergies to nuts and nut based products and they can be sensitive to proximity reactions. If you need ideas re healthy lunch boxes please see https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/howto/guide/school-packed-lunch-inspiration.

    Please could you check that all lunchboxes are clearly named on the outside where your child knows where to look - we have many duplicates!!

    Reminder - no school run clubs on this week or next
    Just a reminder there are no school run clubs this week or next due to Show Me Sessions and parents meetings.

    Future newsblogs - new email sent from address starting next week
    As part of reviewing processes and procedures, we will be using a new sent from address for the ‘newsblog is live’ email that is sent each week.  The address will be newsblog@tadpolefarmcepa.co.uk and will be an unmonitored email box.  If you want to query something on the newsblog please send your emails to school@tadpolefarmcepa.co.uk.  If you inadvertently reply to the newsblog email, you will receive an automated reply telling you that it is an unmonitored inbox and asking you to resend your query to school@tadpolefarmcepa.co.uk, who will answer within school hours.  For those of you that have been with us a while, you will know that I do try and reply to any enquires you send to me following the newsblog…  but the volume is now becoming unmanageable and often the response is one which can just as easily be answered by others. I hope this improvement will mean that all your queries will be answered within a more timely fashion.  

    Message for YN Parents 
    Please can YN children who are attending on Wednesday 23rd October bring in their favourite toy to share in show and tell. Please only send one small item and, although we will obviously do our best to look after things, nothing too fragile/valuable/sentimental/etc if possible, as accidents do happen! 

    Message for YR Parents

    If your child has borrowed school spare pants, socks etc please could they be swiftly washed and returned as our stocks are running low.  If you would like to make any donations of spare pants, socks etc always gratefully received - age 4-6 is most welcome please. 


    2019/20 Newsblog Term 1 Week 5


    Hello All

    Our Y6's had an adventurous if slightly soggy time last week afor their week long residential at Rock UK - I expect much washing of muddy kit and lots of sleep was needed this weekend... and that goes for the adults who went too - Miss Weston. Mrs Fletcher, Mr Kirby and Mr Spencer - without staff prepared to give up their own time and a great staff team back at school who covered their classes, such exciting and rewarding trips could not be offered to your children - thank you staff team for making this week such a success, both at school and away.

    Uganda Day and Celebration

    Over the next academic year and beyond, we will be building up links with partner schools and communities in Uganda.  This project is still in it's early stages for us but on Saturday we joined with the wider Swindon community to celebrate the Golden Jubilee of the Swindon/Uganda Link. 

    On Saturday morning, a small group of children represented Tadpole Farm as part of the community gathered at St Francis Primary School to celebrate the Golden Jubilee of the Uganda Link across Swindon and Bristol. 
    They formed a choir with three other schools and sang beautifully. Then, they listened, danced and even drummed along to the Ugandan Choir who came to visit. 
    Afterwards, the children were lucky enough to learn a Ugandan game, take part in arts and crafts and make some jewellery. 
    It was a fantastic morning!
    This week, on Wednesday, we are celebrating Uganda Day - the children will have a chance to find out more about Uganda; to compare and contrast lives, find out about the natural world in Uganda and begin to build up a picture of similarities and differences to build the foundations for our school link. 


    World Mental Health Day - Wear something yellow:) 

    Don't forget Hello Yellow day for World Mental Health on Thursday 10th October.
    Children can come to school wearing anything yellow, from a simple yellow accessory to all yellow clothing. (Suggested donation £1).
    There will also be a coffee morning for parents, where you can come have tea, coffee and a slice of cake. This is an opportunity to sit and have a chat. Being parents or guardians is one of the hardest jobs, so it is important to look after your well-being too. (Donations welcome, all money will be going to young minds.)

    Finally, there will be a cake sale after school until 4pm. Miss Weston, Tadpole Farm's Star Baker!, will be making one of her amazing cakes. There will be a guess the weight of the cake competition where you could win her cake. 

    Keep a lookout around the school for our Hello Yellow posters which provide more details. 

    Science Week - plastic bottle and resources needed please

    The theme of our science week this year is Experimenting In Space and there will be updates on the website for you to see what your children have been learning about during this focus week.  YR would be grateful for any plastic bottles this week - with lids - Y3  are going to be making rockets as part of our Science week. If you have any bottles, boxes or newspapers could you please bring them in for us to use next week

    Headlice - letters have gone out to classes affected but we all need to check and treat if necessary

    Headlice have arrived in school with a vengeance - it's a while until the holiday and treating the whole family then would be advisable, but before then we need to all take active care to try and stop the spread of them.  Please check your children's hair regularly, treat lice and tie hair back in pony tails or plaits. Lots of advice on NHS website. 


    Football Match report

    We had no favours from the weather this week - a huge thank you must go to Mr Eccleston for making the pitch playable. As our Y6 pupils are all on residential this week, it was a chance for our Y5 footballers to shine. 
    Westlea started strongly and we were fortunate that a great save from Charlie, and a bit of luck via the post, meant that the away side couldn't cheer too soon. Tadpole grew into the match and were able to cheer first as Briel went on one of his many runs before slotting the ball in the back of the net. It wasn't too long before Westlea were also celebrating however, as a short goal kick and some great pressing caused panic in the Tadpole defence. In the end it was an easy goal for the oncoming striker. Despite conceding, the boys continued with the passing approach as directed by their proud coaches. With half time fast approaching there were chances for both teams, Briel had the best opportunity for Tadpole, whilst the defence and Charlie's goalkeeping thwarted the efforts of the Westlea strikers. The score remained 1-1 at halftime. 
    It was Westlea who were the happier team at the start of the second half as a quick throw in and a good turn and shot on the edge of the box resulted in a deflected goal. The boys weren't going to let that defeat them though as the rest of the second half was largely spent in the Westlea half. They threw everything at the Westlea goal, but were met by a strong and resilient Westlea defence and a goalkeeper who made some cracking saves to keep his team in the lead.  
    Unfortunately it wasn't to be for the boys as they ran out of time and lost 2-1. In truth, it could have gone either way and they can hold their heads high. 
    All is not lost however as they will be placed into the draw for the plate competition. We return to action on Tuesday in a bid to keep the top spot in the league. 
    Thanks again for your support.
    Mr Spencer and Miss Wood 

    Do you have any toy vehicles you would like to donate to us?

    We have a need for some more toy cars - can you help? A lot of ours are broken or very worse for wear and the children respond so well to them; this year we have some who are particularly drawn to vehicles. 
    We are also desperate for some emergency vehicles for our topic next term 'people who help us'. Please bring any donations to the school office - thank you. 

    News from St Andrews Church - Church @Tadpole

    We’ll be meeting again in the school hall at 4pm on Sunday 13th October for refreshments, chat, a Bible story and music. This month we have the very first public performance of TFA’s very own Performing Puppets group too. You are very welcome to join us for a fun afternoon.

    Parent Elected Member of our Local Board - Request for Nominations


    Dear Parent
    Parent Local Board Member (Governor) Vacancy
    Would you like to be more involved in your child’s education?
    If you would, why not consider becoming a local board member. There is currently a vacancy for a parent local board member at this school.
    The local board, with the headteacher, has overall responsibility for the running of the school. Their responsibilities include:
    • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
    • Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils
    • Advising on school policies and procedures
    • Helping recruit staff
    • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

    If you are interested in becoming a parent local board member but feel a little daunted by the responsibility you may be taking on, remember that full training will be available, and you will always act as part of a team.
    No special qualifications are needed and the most important thing is to have a keen interest in the school and be prepared to play an active part in the local board’s work. However, we would particularly welcome nominations from parents with the following skills - HR, community building, charity or not-for-profit projects.  Would you consider applying?
    Local board members also need the ability to be able to build relationships with a range of people, to be able to work as part of a team, to be able to question, and to make connections between different types of information.
    If you become a local board member you will be taking on the following commitments to help make sure the school is well managed:
    • Share the responsibilities of the local board as summarised above.
    • Attend and participate in meetings on a regular basis – the local board generally meets six times a year
    • Undergo appropriate training
    • You may also be invited to sit on appointment panels or attend committee meetings.

    You will be required to sign the code of practice, and to apply for a DBS enhanced disclosure. Please also refer to the emailed ‘Qualifications and Disqualifications to serve as a local board member’.

    If you would like to stand for election please complete the emailed nomination form and return it to the school. You may also include a short personal statement to support your nomination, which should be no longer than 100 words.
    The closing date for nominations is 12 noon on 18/10/2019.
    If there are more nominations than vacancies the election will be by secret ballot. If that is necessary, voting papers will be sent to all parents together with details of the ballot procedure.
    Yours sincerely
    Jane Leo
    Headteacher
    Returning Officer

    Message for Running Club

    This week can you bring your Beat the Street fobs to running club - we’ll be taking in as many check points as we can. Also please don’t forget your trainers and a light rain coat as we will be running rain or shine.

    Parent Use of Social Media

    In the last four weeks, there have been a number of parents, in unrelated situations, who have come to see myself or Mr Spencer, concerned/upset by comments made on social media by other parents, that either directly reference, or imply a reference, to either their own or other children in their child’s class or year group. Both Mr Spencer and I have listened to, and in some cases have seen screen shots of, the comments they have been faced with and we can understand why they feel the way they do - they have asked if we will share the situation with you, the parent/carer community. We are realists and, for myself having worked in schools for 18+ years, are no strangers to playground gate chat - we accept that you sometimes need to share what you think, check out concerns and even let off steam. The difference between chatting in a small group at the playground gate and posting something on social media is the number of people it spreads to and the permanence it has - both of these can create situations and impact far beyond that which the poster may have intended - I expect none of you would chat to the parents/carers of 60+ children at the playground gate, but we all know that the use of What’s App or Facebook groups set up for classes/years groups has that effect. I do know these groups can have very positive effects - a group reminder re a trip; a check on what is needed; a question about timings etc; reassurance about how to ask for absence etc - this is not an anti-social media message. It is just a request I have been asked to share on behalf of your parent/carer community that the message groups are kept for practical messages and that any concerns re children, parents/carers, behaviour/class/playground/friendship situations etc are best handled by popping in to school and sorting them out with our support. Thank you.

    Football Match Report

    After eagle-eyed readers noticed that I'd made a slight mistake in the previous blog, we in fact had two matches last week; with our first being played at home to St Leonard's. Fortunately for us, we were pretty much on the front foot throughout the match. The boys dominated possession and managed to score 11 goals and it could have been more, with several chances striking the post and cross bar. After our teams being on the end of results like that last season, credit must be given to St Leonard's, who remained positive and hard working despite the scoreline. Scorers were Joseph (4) Owain (3) Briel (2) Zack and Kaden.

    Sadly, due to weather, our second game was postponed last week. However the team will get a chance to play again on Thursday 3rd October, when we host Westlea to decide who goes through to the next round of the cup.

    Mr Spencer and Miss Wood

    YR Baseline Testing

    You may have seen/heard discussion in the news about the Reception Baseline Tests that are being trialed this year. We are taking part in the trial - not that testing is part of our ethos but because, in our experience, if you want a powerful voice to change such suggestions you need to be in the process. Every year, in all schools, regardless of which year group educators are assessing children all the time in order to know their next step in learning, so assessment is nothing new. Reception children have been assessed on entry to school for years as a way of measuring the impact of school on a child’s progress. For the last few years, schools have been able to choose how this happens - we have done ours against the Early Learning Goals (that we share progress against with you) and have taken 6 weeks to really get to know your child and where they are on their learning journey. The government think that a test (2 blocks of no more than 10 minutes) can replace this approach; can be an equal or better indicator than the professional expertise, applied over 6 weeks, of early years educators… Rest assured that your YR child will not feel any pressure or be disturbed by what is happening - they often do ‘jobs’ with the teachers on a 1:1 basis and they will think nothing of doing this one.

    I am happy to add parental feedback to our comments that we send in, so if you would like to know more or add your feedback please drop me an email. jane.leo@tadpolefarmcepa.co.uk

    News from St Andrew’s Church

    If you enjoyed Harvest Festival this week, or missed out this time because your child wasn't in key stage 1, you can relive the experience at St Andrew's Church on Sunday 6th October at 10am. We will be singing some songs that will be familiar to Tadpole Farm children as well as thinking about what harvest festival is all about, collecting non perishable items for Swindon Food Collective and having a craft for children. You are very welcome to join us.

    Many thanks

    Football Report
    After what was a tough first football season for Tadpole Farm last year, the second season has started off with a bang. Having hosted Tadpole Trials last week, the matches are starting to arrive thick and fast, with our first match being played last Tuesday in the glorious September sun… which resulted in Tadpole taking a valuable 3 points off of Westrop.

    With some players returning from last year's squad, as well as a batch of excited year 5s, the boys started off brightly. With Briel's lightning, quick pace and Zack's organisation in midfield, we were quickly creating chances but couldn't find the back of the net. With Muhammad less busy than he was last season, he was still involved as he had to keep us in the game with several key saves. The deadlock was finally broken as some great play between Dion, Zack and Briel created an opportunity that Briel wasn't going to miss. Despite having a goal disallowed for handball, the boys went into the break two goals up after Briel got his second of the game.

    The second half started well with the boys listening and playing the ball around to each other really well and this paid off as we created chance after chance. Despite missing a few opportunities, we were able to grab two more goals, both scored by Dominik, and this helped us to get our first three points of the season.

    Thank you to all the support received from parents and teachers and we look forward to seeing you at our next home match on Wednesday 25th September where we entertain Westlea in the Cup.

    Update re Drop Off/Parking

    Things are still working smoothly with this and we really appreciate all your cooperation with not parking on site. There have been a few requests to us from parents - Q & A below:-

    1. Could we ask all parents who arrive at 7:30 am or just before for breakfast club to use the whole of the drop zone - some people leave large gaps between cars or don’t pull up to the front of the space, which means others double park and children are at risk? This seems like a sensible request - if you are an early breakfast club user this would be good to do so that we avoid double parking and reduce number of children walking in front of others cars - also will mean staff can get in to park too.

    2. Why don’t you stop the ice cream van parking in the lay-by - he’s taking up spaces we could use? The ice cream van has the right to park there and there is not much we can do about it as it’s outside the school boundary - whether you agree or not, ice cream vans often park outside schools - it’s where the business is for them. There’s not much we can do about this one - sorry - though as winter comes he may be there less I suppose.

    3. I thought that parents picking up after school from LilyPad could use the drop zone - recently it’s been full of parked cars from people using clubs like RPA - could we have some clarification on this please? You are correct; that is the idea - I will ask that signs are put out by the LilyPad team and we will pass the message on to hall users. We don’t have staff available to make sure this happens though so it will be a case of relying on people to follow the request.

    2019/20 Newsblog Term 1 Week 2
    Hello All

    Another lovely week in school, seeing the children already settled in to their new classes and getting engrossed in the learning they are doing. Mr Spencer and I have already had lots of children visiting our office or when we are around the school showing us the great learning they are doing - the excitement with which they describe what they have been doing and how this links to the school’s Christian values is so pleasing:)

    A busy blog this week...

    Y2 Swimming

    Please note swimming starts this week - apologies that I recorded date incorrectly last week - below is timetable for dates for the year - you may want to save it somewhere.



    Thank you, again - Arrangements for Dropping Off and Picking Up


    The new system is really beginning to settle down now and the children are much safer at the end of the day as a result. The traffic flows in the morning are smoother too… all in all a great success. I know that some of you still have a few queries about where you can park and have asked me to pass on the PCSO’s contact details - he advises that as the PCSO team is changing at the moment then please call 101 and explain that you at a Tadpole Farm parent, would like to discuss parking with the PCSO for our school and you would like them to contact you - in my experience they are pretty efficient and responsive - if that’s not the case let me know.

    Just to clarify, we have 4 disabled parking bays but more disabled permits than that so, at pick up time those people with disabled permits (all of whom also have Blue Badges) or those with temporary permits (for example, because child has broken leg and is in wheelchair or other need that may not be apparent) are parked in bays or in drop zone. The only other cars parked on site are staff (permits will be displayed soon in our cars too) or visitors, who will also be asked to display a permit.

    One final request, please can you let those who only come occasionally to collect or drop off, know about the arrangements too - including that there is no drive through and drop facility or drive through for the purpose of turning around for the end of the day - the only cars that should be turning in to the site at the end of the day are those with permits, as detailed above.

    Message for YR and YN Parents
    Your children are settling in really well. We would like to ask you to help us with water bottles - a small number of children have squash in these, however we request that just water comes into school. If your child is having difficulty converting to water only, then try each day adding a bit more water as you dilute. By October half term, the children will be converted to water without even knowing they have done it.

    For those who have lunch boxes, please note they need to be nut and sweet free please - the website Change4life is really good to get children involved in choosing what goes in their lunchbox https://www.nhs.uk/change4life/recipes/healthier-lunchboxes We try to follow the National recommended standards for nutrition for young people; these recommend packed lunches may include:
    • At least one portion of fruit and or vegetable (this could include a dried fruit; grapes to be cut in half lengthways)
    • Meat, fish or other source of non-dairy protein (e.g. lentils, chick peas, hummus)
    • A sandwich that includes a savoury filling (e.g. egg, tuna, cheese, cooked meat)
    • A starchy food such as bread, pasta, rice, noodles
    • Dairy food such as cheese, yoghurt, fromage frais
    • A biscuit not coated in chocolate
    • Crisps (baked or other low fat options if possible) or other such snack such as seeds, savoury crackers, breadsticks etc.
    • Eating utensils if necessary
    They also recommend packed lunches should avoid:
    • Confectionery such as chocolate bars, chocolate coated biscuits and sweets.
    • Sausage rolls and pies should only be included occasionally.
    • No fizzy drinks.
    In addition we ask that no nuts and nut products (e.g. peanut butter) should not be sent to school because of allergy concerns. Children are not allowed to share food items for this same reason.

    Another website you might find really useful about starting school is below - lots of advice on routines, sleep, anxiety, toileting, lunchboxes etc https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/collections/starting-primary-school/1

    Y2 Trip Update
    Year Two are excited to be visiting ‘We The Curious’ in Bristol on Monday 21st October - details are now on ParentPay. We know that this will help us tie up our term of ‘working scientifically’ and we will have the chance to look deeper into our Space themed topic during our ‘Stargazing 2D Planetarium Show’. There is so much to explore and lots of experiments to get really hands-on with - we can’t wait… and we think the children might enjoy it too:)

    Tadpole Garden Village Book Festival

    Hello everyone!

    We are looking to run a Tadpole Garden Village Book Festival on 12th - 13th June 2020 (think Cheltenham Literature Festival but on much smaller scale… well this year anyway;)). We want to raise the profile of reading in the community, as well as raise money to buy books for children in Swindon who don’t have access to literacy.
    We are really excited to have already had interest from a big author, and now we need help from you!
    If you have any of the following skills and would like to join us, please email the office or speak to Miss Weston or Miss Brandenburg.
    • Food stalls
    • Published Writing for Children
    • Illustrations
    • Activities to support Wellbeing (e.g massages, mindfulness)
    • Eco friendly solutions to plastic bottles at events!
    If you have any links to authors or publishing companies, we would be hugely grateful if you could get in contact with us - come and be part of an innovative, exciting next step in our growing community.
    Thank you!
    Miss Weston & Miss Brandenburg
