I hope you are all enjoying the summer and the lovely weather we are having.
I am very excited about starting as Headteacher at Silchester CE Primary School. I will be teaching each class for half a day in the first half term so I can get to know the children, who are the most important people in the school!
I will be writing regular blogs for the website and I hope that you you will find them informative and useful.
From September 2014 we are required to publish a SEN Information Report on our website. This sets out in detail information about implementation of the governing body's policy for pupils with SEN. It includes arrangements for identifying, assessing and making provision for pupils with SEN.
Please find below some information on how we are spending our sports funding.
If your child's 4th birthday is between 1 September 2013 and 31 August 2014, you should have now been offered a school place for September 2014. If you are still looking for a place to start school in September please contact Silchester School to see if we can accommodate you.
We also currently have space available to start in years 4, 5, and 6 in September . If you are moving to the area, please contact the school office for more information on how to apply for a place at our school.
Please download our admissions policy below for information about our admissions criteria which includes a SIF form to apply under faith criteria. Admission forms are online via the Hampshire County Council Website. www.hants.gov.uk/admissions.
We will be holding open days in the autumn term for parents of children due to start school in September 2015.
Thursday 13th November at 9:30am
Wednesday 26th November at 1:30pm
Please contact the school if you would like to attend these events.
A huge thank you to all of the parents who attended the 'mindset' session on the Thursday 23rd Jan. It was as usual very comforting to see the support we have from the Silchester parent body and also the drive that they have to give their children the best possible education!
I do hope that you were able to take something from it and remember the importance of:
- Challenge and struggle
- Not I can't, rather I can't yet
- Praising the process and specific behaviours rather than the person
I do hope some of you have come to terms with the water/wine puzzle.
Attached should hopefully be the powerpoint from the evening.
Once again, many thanks for giving up your valuable time.
Mr Ronnie Green

Silchester School community continues to sponsor a child in Swaziland, called Rachel, via the Challenge Ministries orphan care programme. Many of our children have connected with Rachel very compassionately , through Global Citizenship lessons; a visit from the Swaziland choir; profile updates of Rachel; and some video footage of Rachel herself being interviewed.
Please find below further information on how you can help other children like Rachel.
