  • Special Parents' Evenings

    date posted: 16/10/14

    We have held two very successful evenings for parents this week. On Tuesday we all enjoyed an evening on reading for enjoyment. Our Reading Patron, Jonny Zucker, gave a very entertaining talk on children's literature, recommending lots of excellent books to inspire children to read. Our English Leaders, Emily Gazzard and Kate Getley, also gave talks on how we teach reading skills and promote a love of reading at Rhodes Avenue. After the presentations, Kate Agnew from Muswell Hill Children's Bookshop introduced us to some inspiring new children's books and others that she rated very highly. Information on the evening and copies of the presentation will be posted on the curriculum page of the website tomorrow.

    On Wednesday we held an evening on early literacy and maths skills for Reception parents. Both meetings were well attended and very much appreciated by our parents. Our next evenings for parents will be pupil progress meetings on 12th and 13th November.

  • Three firsts for Haringey!

    Maria Panayiotou and I were invited to attend the Inclusion Quality Mark Awards Ceremony at 116 Pall Mall last Tuesday. There we received the award, and a further award, Centre of Excellence for Inclusion. We also heard that we have been awarded a Gold Kitemark for P.E. and School Sport. It was quite a week for Rhodes Avenue and three firsts for Haringey!
