On Monday 15th January (10am – 12pm) at The Coffee Lounge, Wallington United Reformed Church, Stanley Park Road, Wallington there is a friendly and informal drop in support group for parents and carers of children with additional needs. Mark Brown is an expert in a range of issues including toileting, sleep, behaviour, obsessions, puberty and much more. He has worked with many families to help them overcome a wide range of issues. He is generously donating his time for free to help local families, so come along and get his advice and meet other parents who are in a similar position to you. There is no cost for this session, although a £1 donation would be appreciated.

If anyone from Year 1 - 3 is interested in their child taking up the recorder and learning to read music there will hopefully be a new group beginning lessons some time this term. The recorder is a nice easy starter instrument for young children to learn to play and learn how to read music at the same time. I use a special colour coded system to appeal to younger children and group sizes are kept small so they learn very fast. Places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis so please email me as soon as possible if interested at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Mrs Humphreys and Mrs Herd have both joined the Y5 team as teaching assistants. Mrs Page has joined the Sparrows team as the class teacher for 3 days a week. Miss Grefaite has joined the midday supervisor team.

We have a new family support worker starting at Devonshire this week. Miss Hannah Green will no longer be based at Devonshire, Mrs Emma Green is our new family support worker. She will provide exactly the same advice and support as Hannah and will be based at Devonshire on a Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. We are looking forward to welcoming Emma to the Devonshire team. Thank you to Hannah for everything you have done at Devonshire.

If you wish to speak to the family support worker please make an appointment at the school office or she will be at the school gate on the mornings of the days that she works in school.

Well done to Divya in Year 4 who passed her grade one flute exam with merit and Richa in Year 5 who passed her grade three flute exam. If anyone is interested in taking up the flute from Year 2 upwards and would like a trial lesson please contact Mrs Campbell on This email address is being protected from spambots.

Children in Key Stage 2 have a block of swimming lessons each year, usually lasting for half a term. The children make great progress with their swimming in these lessons. If you have the opportunity, please take your children swimming between these blocks of lessons so that they can practise the skills that they have learnt. This also means that when it is their next block of lessons they are not spending the first couple of lessons remembering their skills. Being able to swim is such a vital skill for children to have; we want to make sure that the children get the most out of their lessons. On the subject of swimming lessons, a big thank you to the parent and grandparent volunteers who help at swimming each week, their support makes our swimming lessons possible.

Thank you so much to the PSA who have worked very hard throughout the autumn term to raise money for the school.

During December alone, they:

  • organised a winter ball and a Christmas raffle event, both of which were very well attended;

  • donated £20 to every class so that they could do extra craft activities;

  • purchased Christmas crackers for the Christmas lunch;

  • paid for a pantomime company to visit Devonshire and every child from Reception to Year 6 watched a performance of Aladdin; and

  • organised a wreath-making workshop, open to everyone at Devonshire.

Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 performed 2 Christmas performances to their parents.

Key Stage 2 children had the opportunity to participate in the Junior Christmas Nativity, 138 children took part and it was standing room only in Christ Church as the children raised the roof with their fantastic singing and endless enthusiasm.

All children at Devonshire made a Christmas card and these were delivered to our neighbours, we have had many emails of thanks for these cards.

Our school kitchen made 552 Christmas meals.

The choir sang carols at 3 old people’s homes and at the PSA Christmas raffle event.
