Dear Parents,

Please also note that Monday 2nd November is an INSET day so we look forward to seeing children back at school on Tuesday 3rd November.

If your child or a family member in the same household tests positive for Coronavirus during the half term period, please advise us by leaving a message on the school answerphone, 01935 410793. These will be picked up daily and a member of staff will return your call, thank you.

We would like to wish all our students and their families a safe and happy half term break.

Our most recent Ofsted was in May 2018, and we were pleased with the result of this visit. Highlights for me include:

“You make sure that expectations are high. Lessons are about learning and trying your best. The learning environment is filled with positive prompts and messages to pupils.”

“You expect learning to be interesting, relevant and fun. As a result, pupils learn to apply their skills while doing practical activities that they enjoy.”

I believe, these quotes demonstrate our absolute commitment to ensuring all our pupils are able to access a high quality education, regardless of what has gone before.

Our vision remains strong; in the words of the poet Maya Angelou:  ‘My vision is not that you survive, but that you thrive with passion, compassion, humour and style’.

‘Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility’

Our school recognises that the safety and welfare of children and young people is paramount and that we all have a responsibility to protect them from harm. We understand that it is the responsibility of all staff and governors to safeguard children and young people. We take all reasonable steps to ensure, through appropriate procedures and training, that all children and young people, irrespective of gender, age, disability, race, religion or belief, sexual identity or social background, are protected from harm.

Our Middle Years pupils have been studying Diwali this week and have created a colourful display of their work. They did some fabulous artwork and they even experimented with henna hand painting.


Students and staff have enjoyed a successful Careers Day, both online and in the classroom. Activities included mapping out career pathways and discovering what it takes to join the Armed Forces with some great commando crawl demonstrations from our staff!


SSPS students and staff marked Remembrance Day today with a 2 min silence and created some beautiful artwork. Lest we forget.

Congratulations to more South Somerset Partnership School students who have been selected to be published in a short story anthology! Watch this space for publication of the book coming this winter.
