Welcome back to the new school year. Our first two days are training days so we look forward to seeing you on Thursday 3rd September. A reminder to parents of Y1 and Y2 children that Friday is a red, white and blue day to celebrate the Queen being the longest reigning monarch.

June 2015 The Queen's Long Dance

In celebration for when the Queen becomes the longest reigning monarch on 9th September, we have been accepted as a beacon school to learn the Queen's Long Dance.  This is a country dance that schools across the country are learning.  We are blogging our journey which will contribute towards a scrap book to be presented to the Queen.

This is our most recent entry:

We have just got started at Shaw Cross with our Year 2 pupils and they are loving it!  We have not worked with the music yet but are looking forward to moving onto this.  The children are doing brilliantly and I am sure they will be ready for their leavers' assembly at the end of term.  Though they are expecting the Queen to turn up!

Year 1 are just beginning to start the dance and hope to pick this up again in September when the Queen actually meets the date of the longest reign.

Comments from Year 2 pupils so far:

It is really good because doing a dance for the Queen makes me really happy.

It is good because I've not been part of a big dance before.

It is good to be part of something again that is exciting for our country.

The gallops are good because each pair gets to have a go so it's fair.

It helps us to get exercise.

I really like the gallops with a partner.


Message from Mrs Drury our Headteacher

"Working together, valuing and nurturing children"

Welcome!! Shaw Cross Infant and Nursery is a friendly and caring school. Our staff and governors take pleasure and pride in helping children to develop into confident and happy learners. We take our responsibility very seriously as we want to give children the best possible start to their education and equip them with the knowledge, skills and attitudes to succeed in their future lives. We strive to ensure that children have a broad range of experiences and take every opportunity to involve them in the wealth of cultural experiences available to us in our country.   We firmly believe that education is a partnership between home and school. We place a strong emphasis on developing the personal well being of each child as we feel that this provides the foundation for successful learning. We have developed strong links with other agencies and organsitions including our colleagues at the Chickenley, Earlsheaton and Shaw Cross Children's Centre and Stay n Play Child care to support us in our work. We liaise closely with local schools as we believe by working together we can make a positive impact on the lives of the children, young people and their families within our community. 

We hope that these pages will be informative and provide you with a taste of what we have to offer.
