KEEPING YOU IN TOUCH - YOUR FREE MONTHLY NEWSPAPER DELIVERED DOOR-TO-DOOR FOR 31 YEARS ANOTHER YEAR BREEZES IN AT PADDLE…


How swiftly the Christmas holidays blur into the past as everyone gets ready for an exciting new term of learning.


It has been an industrious start to the new term at Paddle Academy; catching up with the children and tales of their adventures during the holidays, the interesting places they have been to, and friends and family they have caught up with. The children always just look a little bit taller after a holiday, as they have grown just that little bit more… or is it me shrinking as I am getting that little bit older!!


We are hoping that the spring term is slightly less busy that the autumn term, which was filled with all the Christmas festivities. However, our wishful thinking is not always granted; the spring term looks full of exciting learning with sports tournaments, visits to Honister Mine for Year 3 and 4 to ‘add depth’ to their Rocks and Earth study (sorry for the pun!) and the Lego League tournament at St. Bees School. The Year 6 pupils have been busy working alongside Lego ambassadors Rob Way and Heather Water from Sellafield, programming Lego Mind Storms. They will then compete with other teams and present their learning to the wider audience. A fabulous experience for all involved.


During the autumn term, I have had the privilege of Chairing the Cockermouth Consortium of Headteachers. This involves co-ordinating the agenda for our half-termly meetings and inviting outside contributors to our meetings. I also attend the CASL (Cumbria Alliance of System Leaders) meetings with Mrs. Smallwood from All Saints’ and we feed back issues from a county level to the rest of the Headteacher in Cockermouth. Working alongside my valued colleagues provides an opportunity for us to share good practice across our schools and improve the outcomes for ALL our pupils in the Cockermouth area. Trudy Harrison MP was able to attend our last meeting. This enabled us, as a group of Heads, to discuss our concerns about funding, the demanding new curriculum, league tables and diminishing support for our SEN (Special Educational Needs) pupils. It was good to talk to Trudy, who promised to talk to her colleagues back in Parliament about our concerns for education.


I am always excited about the new possibilities that a New Year brings. It is a time for New Year’s resolutions and a new start for many. Living in this beautiful environment, working with the Church, wider community and Consortium of Cockermouth Schools to make the education of the children that we serve “the best it can be…!”


Let’s hope that 2018 brings us all good health and that vital positive outlook on life. From all the Paddle Family “Happy New Year!”
