The parent/carer’s questionnaire will be sent home in the next couple of weeks. It is very important that we take feedback from each part of the Devonshire community as to what they feel is going well and what they feel could be further developed. This year, based on feedback from the parents we have:The parent/carer’s questionnaire will be sent home in the next couple of weeks. It is very important that we take feedback from each part of the Devonshire community as to what they feel is going well and what they feel could be further developed. This year, based on feedback from the parents we have: Increased the number of performances and meetings so that families have a greater choice as to which one they come to Changed the format of parents’ evening Changed the timings of the KS2 sports day Increased the number of clubs available for our younger children Shared your concerns about traffic in Devonshire Avenue with other parents via the newsletter.All of these suggestions have had a positive impact on life at Devonshire and show the value of us all working together.

Last Friday evening 20 swimmers represented Devonshire at the borough school’s swimming gala. Children from Year 4 upwards competed against 8 other schools. The children were fantastic ambassadors for the school and we were all very proud of them and their tremendous efforts. A special mention must go to our girl’s medley relay team (Hayley, Nicole and Iniyaa) who won a bronze medal, Hayley who won a bronze medal in the girl’s butterfly race, to the Year 6 who competed having just come back from their residential trip and to the Year 5 boys who filled any gaps we had in our Year 6 team. Thanks to Miss Newton, the team manager and to Mr Wells, Mrs Scrivens, Miss Dourado and Miss Byfield who were all poolside with the children at the gala. Also, thank you to the parent supporters.Last Friday evening 20 swimmers represented Devonshire at the borough school’s swimming gala. Children from Year 4 upwards competed against 8 other schools.

Also, thank you to the parent supporters.Swimming is a vital skill; it is so important for children to learn to swim. Our Year 3s are currently having swimming lessons. Thank you to all of the parents and grandparents who accompany our swimming trip each week. Without you, we would struggle to give the children the swimming opportunities that they currently have.

Year 6 have enjoyed a leisurely breakfast and a walk to Monk's House in the sunshine this morning.

If you have any uniform that your child or children have grown out of, we would be delighted to find another home for it. Please give any spare uniform to the school office who will add it to our second hand uniform stock which will be for sale later in the term.

In preparation for our Golden Jubilee, the children were asked to design a flag for our 50th anniversary. We had over 200 entries and our winner was Thinon in Year 3. As part of our celebrations, the flag design was made into an actual flag and a flag pole put up in the junior playground. On the Friday of our anniversary week, the whole school gathered in the playground and watched the flag being raised. A momentous occasion and a very special and lasting memory of our Golden Jubilee.In preparation for our Golden Jubilee, the children were asked to design a flag for our 50th anniversary.

We even made it into the Sutton Guardian!
