Ashton Gate Celebration of Sport 

On Monday, some of our footballers had the opportunity to play at Ashton Gate Stadium as part of the 'Celebration of Sport' event. 

It was such a special occasion and they did us so proud, winning two matches (one 6-0!!) and drawing two! 

Ofsted Report 

As you know, we were visited by Ofsted last month who completed a full graded inspection of our school. 

Their official report was published this week and we couldn't be prouder.

Paper copies of the report were sent home with children yesterday, but if you've not yet had a chance to read it, you can access it at https://reports.ofsted.gov.uk/provider/21/109243

We cannot thank our children, parents and families enough for their ongoing support as we continue on our journey of school improvement.

Relationships Education 

Next term, KS2 classes will be starting their PSHE sessions on Relationship Education. 

If you would like further information on the units they will be covering, all the information is available on our Ten:Ten Parent Portal which you can access here

School Choir 

In June, our school choir have been invited to take part in the Bristol Schools Summer Sing! This is a fantastic opportunity and means they will be performing, alongside schools from across the city, to a live audience at Bristol Beacon. 

This is a wonderful opportunity and if you would like to come along and watch the show to cheer them on, tickets can be purchased here: https://bristolbeacon.org/whats-on/summer-sing-schools-concert/

For more information on our school choir, and to see the songs they've been learning recently, check out our dedicated School Choir Page

Due to the Half Term break, there are no Head Teacher Awards this week. 

Here is a reminder of last week's wonderful winners...


Changes to Penalty Notices 

As you may be aware, new guidance has been released around the issuing of penalty notices (fines) for children who have unatuhorised absences from school.

From August 2024, the fine for school absences will be £80 if paid within 21 days or £160 if paid within 28 days. This rate is inline with inflation and is the first increase since 2012. 

In the case of repeated fines, if a parent receives a second fine for the same child within any three-year period, this will be charged at the higher rate of £160. 

Fines per parent will be capped to two fines within any three-year period, however once this limit is reached, other action, such as a parenting order or prosecution will be considered. 

Thank you to parents for continuing to work with us to support attendance at CTK


Doors are open for children to come in to school from 8.40am and children should be in school ready for registration by 8.50am. 

Children arriving after this will recieve late mark and those who arrive after 9.20am will recieve an unauthorise mark for the morning session. 

Not only will lateness have a negative effect on their attendance, it can also impact their learning as they are often missing important information about the day's lessons. 

Breakfast Club is available to all pupils from 8.00am (charged at £1 per day for children R-Y6 and £3 for Nursery) and is a great way to ensure children are in school  on time, and ready for the school day. 

Do you have our school app yet? 

The School Gateway app is the best (and cheapest) way to stay in touch with us here at CTK. 

Not only can it be used to book children into clubs, it's also a great messaging service. 

Text messages, whilst useful, cost us a lot of money to send and we're sure you agree, we'd rather spend our budget on more resources and opportunities for our children.  So, going forward, we're going to utilise the app more, to avoid sending as many text messages. 

If you've not yet downloaded the app, you can find it on GooglePlay and the App Store under School Gateway. Here's a handy guide to get you started....


Without the app, you might miss important information going forward, so we strongly encourage all parents to sign up - it's completely free and a great way to stay in touch!!
