Dear Parents, Carers and Pupils,

 

I would like to welcome you to the new school year of 2018/19. This year we are looking forward to several exciting developments including a new school building and works at the East Cowes Family Centre to provide accommodation for a preschool. Both of these will give the Queensgate community an excellent learning environment for future generations of pupils and staff to enjoy.

At the end of the last academic year the attendance was around 97 % with several classes had 100 % weekly attendance during the summer term, which is a fantastic achievement. There is a strong link between regular attendance and pupil progress so it is important to maintain this throughout the coming school year.

Dear Queensgate community, 

Welcome back following the Christmas and New Year break. The start of 2018 brings two exciting changes for the School. Firstly, we welcome Mr Chubb as the new deputy head. Mr Chubb has been appointed to help develop the School and take us forward on the next stage of its development journey. He takes over from Mrs Johnson, who has retired from the School's Leadership Team and Governing Board. Thank you Mrs Johnson for your amazing contribution to Queensgate and its community over the years. Next, we can announce the possibility of the School receiving a new building. Over the past few months the School has been liaising closely with a number of agencies to develop this as a strategic plan. We are waiting for the final decision process to be announced but hope to bring more news of this in the near future.

I would like to welcome you to the new school year 2017/18. The start of term has been full of exciting developments, including participation in Isle of Wight Day, the girls' football team receiving the silver medal in the IOW Danone Cup Finals and the Queensgate Run.

 Attendance is currently above 97%, with several classes achieving 100% weekly attendance, which is a fantastic achievement. There is a strong link between regular attendance and pupil progress so it is important to maintain this good start throughout the school year.

 The Board of Governors received the resignation of Margaret Webster, our local authority governor and are in the process of identifying a replacement. We would like to thank Margaret for all her hard work and dedication to Queensgate over the past few years. We also have Parent Governor vacancies on the board and would encourage anyone interested in applying to contact Angie Selle (admin@queensgateprimary.co.uk)
