30 Million Word Challenge!
This year we have a whole school target to try and read 30 Million words.
Our KS2 children are very excited about this challenge. Each term the children will be given a target of words to read, which is personal to them, and they can check on their Scholastic Reading site how close they are to their target.
Many children achieved their target last term, and we celebrated with a certificate and their decorated stars lighting up the way to our target. Please encourage your children’s participation in this challenge by sharing reading at home.
South Kent – Directory of Services
Last year the Ashford, Dover and Folkestone & Hythe Local Children’s Partnership Groups (LCPGs) highlighted the need for a district directory of services, to make it clearer and more accessible for partners to be able to effectively signpost and refer children, young people and families to appropriate support. Therefore, as one of our actions, we collaboratively developed a word version district directory for Ashford, Dover and Folkestone & Hythe which we launched in December 2020.

Deal Parochial Win the Education Award at the Kent LTA Tennis Awards Evening.
For us, this Award for 2020 recognizes how we have enhanced our in-school tennis offering during the Pandemic whilst we have sadly not been able to use the Deal Indoor Tennis Centre. This enhanced in-school provision enabled us to maintain tennis participation and enthusiasm from our pupils. It has involved a varied approach over the course of 2020, ranging from making lockdown tennis videos for remote learning from our school website at the beginning of the Pandemic, to the partial-school return in June when we provided curriculum tennis PE lessons to all KS1&2 bubbles, and pupils and staff participated in a memorable tennis marathon, which raised £1000 for charity. Following our full-school return in September, our tennis provision included daily (bubble-specific) tennis clubs, teaching fun, engaging science sessions on tennis-related topics such as backspin and momentum, and undertaking a virtual team tennis competition in the upper year bubbles, in addition to our standard curriculum tennis lessons and re-structuring our additional tennis initiative to benefit more pupils.
We are very proud that our inclusive tennis programme continued to thrive in 2020, in spite of COVID-19, and this is thanks to the fantastic dedication and enthusiasm of our pupils and staff, as well as our wider school community. Well done everyone!
