At Sharp Lane Primary School we continually strive for the best outcomes for our pupils both academically and emotionally. Our Key Worker system plays a vital role in connecting and tuning in with children and families at a more personal, small group level. Whilst Miss Home will have overall responsibility for the children in Carle Class, your child's Key Worker will play an essential role in caring for your child, supporting their development and developing rich relationships with families, resulting in a 'community of learners' approach. Spending daily time in our Key Worker groups supports our ethos of 'togetherness' which is embedded within our key family approach. Through this approach, we are able to become engaging companions for curious young minds, supporting their explorations and observing their discoveries. It is through this approach that we are able to observe our children flourish whilst achieving wonderful outcomes and most importantly being 'happy'.

Now the weather is changing can you please provide your child with a full set of spare clothes, which includes t-shirts, jumpers/cardigans, trousers/skirts/dresses, socks/tights, underwear as well as a change of footwear such as wellies or pumps.
This will ensure your child can explore our outdoor area in all weathers and will build their natural curiosity as well as stay dry and comfortable for the rest of the day at school.
It would be greatly appreciated, if you have any spare clothes that you would like to donate to us. At the moment we are low on spare underwear, tights and socks.

Nursery and Reception Outdoor renovations are finished!
The children are very excited and can't wait to explore our new outdoor area renovations which look amazing. The staff can't wait too! We will be having a talk with the children next week about how they can explore the new equipment safely and enjoy new learning experiences. We will also be strongly encouraging the children to care for the new areas as part of their learning and journey in school.
Children in Need
Carle Class loved wearing our PJs for Children in Need and decorating biscuits. As a class we talked about how the money we had raised would make a real difference to disadvantaged children and young people around the UK.
Thank you again to everyone's kind donations!
Stay and play.
We held our first stay and play today. The children loved spending time with their parents and showing them how we learn in reception. We also gave the parents a tour of our new playground!
Thank you to all the parents who came in! If you couldn't make this one, don't worry we we have more happening soon.
