'The Bumblesnouts Save the World'  Years 3 and 4 put on this fabulous production on 28th and 29th March.  Well done to all of the children for working so hard over the last few weeks to ensure that it was a success.  The singing was sensational and the lines were delivered with passion and excellent timing to ensure an outstanding reception by our audiences.  A big thank you to those parents who helped  the children with their costumes and learning lines.  

Phew! It's hot in here!
On 22nd February, Year 4 visited the Living Rainforest in Newbury.  The children particularly enjoyed the ‘Amazing Adaptations' workshop’, where they were able to see real creatures that they have been learning about in the classroom up close. While walking around the rainforest, the children found frogs, butterflies, monkeys, spiders, fish and birds.  


Red Nose Day 2017
Thank you to everyone who participated in and donated money to Red Nose Day 2017 – we had a fantastic time in school and raised over £350 for the charity – thank you so much!

A right royal day out!
Y2 enjoyed a day trip to Windsor Castle on 3rd February.  The children visited the State Apartments and St George's Chapel, as well as watching the the Changing of the Guard.  Y2 loved learning more about the Queen, re-enacting the Coronation and being presented with the Order of the Garter!  

Happy Bugs in the BOLE!
Thank you so much to everyone who brought in bricks, pots, bamboo and sticks for the new Bug Hotel in the BOLE on Friday 17th March.  As you can see, the hotel is looking fabulous and the children are enjoying ‘bug hunting’ on their regular trips to the BOLE as the weather gets warmer. 

Science Week
Miss Hughes kicked off Science Week on 6th February with a whole school assembly.   Our learning objectives and values for the week are to ask questions, understand and make links, discover together and enjoy the week!  The children were buzzing with excitement on hearing the planned activities, and we are looking forward to welcoming guest scientists into school during the week to discuss their work.

Welcome to Binfield C.E. Primary School (VA)

  • SIAMS (church) Inspection

    As you know, we had our SIAMS (church) inspection on 15th March.  Mrs Jenny Earp inspected the school and spent time talking to parents, pupils, staff, governors and our Rector, Luke.  She also observed R.E. lessons across the school and collective worship (assemblies), and scrutinised a range of evidence including: pupil progress and attainment data (Reading, Writing, Maths and R.E.), pupils’ work and books, plus a range of supporting evidence provided by the school, including our own self-evaluation.

    I am delighted to announce that the inspection went extremely well and we have been graded as an “Outstanding Church of England Primary School”.  The inspector highlighted many areas of strength across the school, including:

    • “The impact of the School’s strong Christian values are integral to the School … they are put into action every day and as a result, the behaviour of pupils is excellent.
    • “The impact of the School’s strong Christian character and values is evident in the high quality of care and the relationship between all members of the School Community.
    • “The emphasis on valuing each child as an individual and meeting them at their place of need has a positive impact on academic achievement.”

    The report identifies two areas for further development, which are:

    • Develop the outdoor environment further to include a quiet reflection area in order to enhance the provision for spiritual development and provide an alternative place for creative collective worship.
    • Build on the best practice within the school to increase the proportion of outstanding teaching in Religious Education (R.E.).

    Work is already underway to develop these aspects and build on the strengths with our school.

    Needless to say, we are very pleased that the combined effort and support of our whole school community has been recognised as ‘Outstanding’.  Thank you for all of your ongoing support in making our school so special.  The full report is available under the ‘Reports’ tab.
