2014 Results

As you may have heard, the Department for Education published the national Key Stage Two results this morning.

Our headline result for combined level 4 or above in reading, writing and maths is 85% which places us 7th in the local authority league table above both local and national averages.

Our congratulations to all of last year’s Year 6 who worked so hard not only in Year 6 but during their entire time at Brunel, and to all the staff who supported them whilst at junior school.  We hope they go on to achieve similar levels of success at GCSE and beyond!

Carol Concert Wednesday 17 December

Our Carol Concert is fast approaching – just over a week away at 2pm on Wednesday 17 December at St Mary’s Church.  Children can be taken home from the church afterwards and the service should not last more than 40 minutes so you will have time to get to infant schools.

Please find  below a pdf of the words as some children have asked for copies to take home and learn.

Mrs Mitchell

I am writing with the sad news that Mrs Mitchell is leaving the school at the end of this term.

Mrs Mitchell was offered a promotion at another school in the city and after a great deal of soul-searching and heartache, she made the decision to accept this new job offer.

Mrs Mitchell has been working at Isambard Brunel Junior School since 2001 and will be known by very many of you.  Her contribution to the lives of children here over the past thirteen years has been enormous both as a class teacher and, for the last few years, as a member of the senior management team.  We are very proud of her success in obtaining a new position but will miss her terribly.

The school will be saying a proper goodbye to Mrs Mitchell on the last day of term.
