Year 1 Singing Workshop - Thursday 26 May

Year 1 took part in a singing workshop, run by the Hertfordshire Music Service, this afternoon. There were children from several other schools there and everyone had fun joining in with the songs and their actions.

Governor Drop-in Week

We have welcomed several of our governors into school this week. They have visited classrooms, met with staff and chatted to children, focusing particularly on attitudes to learning and the ways in wellbeing is supported at Victoria.

Year 1 Phonics Screening Check

We will be carrying out this statutory, national check for children in Year 1 during the week after half term. No particular preparation is needed, but please ensure you continue to read with your children throughout half term and ensure they get plenty of rest, ready for the return to school on Monday 6 June.

Staffing News

We are sorry to announce that Miss Craig will be leaving us on Friday 10 June. Miss Craig has been a teaching assistant in Nursery for two and a half years and a valued member of our team. We wish her well in her new role, still in education but not in teaching. She will be replaced by Miss Dell, who is already well-known to the Nursery children.

Two members of the After School Club team have also left us in the last two weeks, to pursue the next stage of their education. We are very grateful to Miss Arif and Miss Sargeant for their hard work at the club and wish them good luck for the future. Miss Amy Foran will join us as an After School Club assistant after half term. 

We have two great opportunities for those interested in joining our happy staff team:

We are looking for a Teaching Assistant, to work 22.5 hours a week from 1 September. The hours would be spread across the week and spent in classes from Reception to Year 2. We are also looking for a Learning Support Assistant, to work 20 hours a week supporting a child 1:1 in our Early Years Foundation Stage, also from 1 September. Please visit www.teachinherts.com for more information and to apply. Alternatively you can contact the school office from Monday 6 June. The closing date for both vacancies is Wednesday 15 June.
