The Redstart Primary School delighted by generous football donationThe Redstart Primary School were absolutely delighted when their PE Development Assistant, Jon Smith, approached his football club, Forton Rangers and their sponsors, EcoElectrix, and asked for sponsorship money to purchase some new footballs for pupils at Redstart. Forton Rangers and EcoElectrix both very kindly agreed and awarded the school a sum of money. This pot of money was added to by Jon's own organisation, Rebel's Runners, and the school was able to buy 30 new footballs. These new footballs will be enjoyed by all the pupils at Redstart during their PE lessons and will help them to develop their ball skills, whilst improving their fitness, health and well-being. Jon Smith said "It's so important that the children are keeping active during lockdown whilst so many clubs are forced to close". Both The Redstart Primary School and The Redstart Leaning Partnership would like to thank Forton Rangers, EcoElectrix and Rebel’s Runners for their kind donations and who knows we could be training the next Kelly Smith MBE or Jack Grealish, watch this space!

A message from Rebecca Collins and Suzanne FlackThank you for being so understanding when we postponed the Parents’ Evening sessions so we could focus on our OFSTED inspection. If you have any difficulty with the new dates please let us know and we will find you an alternative slot. It usually takes 3 weeks or so for the Inspection report to be published. We’ll let you know when it’s available for you to read. Our Book Week has offered the children an exciting mix of activities and the ever-popular Book Week play. Roles are keenly contested amongst the staff team and the repertoire of acting skills develops each year. You might like to ask your children who stole the show this year. Thank you for supporting the Book Fair. Every purchase makes a contribution to a fund for us to buy more books for the school which benefits all of our students. The pupils looked amazing in their costumes for World Book Day and our teams performed brilliantly at the Trust reading quiz held here yesterday. Next week we are very excited to be welcoming a quartet from the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra who will be performing on Friday and Holland Park Opera who are providing us with workshops and a performance of The Pirates of Penzance on Wednesday. We are delighted to be able to offer our children the opportunity to see live music and two events in one week will make it even more memorable.
