We couldn’t be more proud of our team who, after winning the Melksham heat, have gone on to win the West Wiltshire swimming gala at Trowbridge Sports Centre. Our next competition is July 5th In Marlborough. Wish us luck.
Please click here to read the report from our Ofsted inspection on April 25th 2017. We are delighted that we have again been declared to be a ‘good’ school by Ofsted.
As we only had a one day inspection, the report is shorter than those written when a full, two day, inspection is carried out. This report is written in the form of a letter to the head teacher, and is not split into the five areas with a grading for each area, as would be found in a full inspection report.
We are rightly very pleased and proud of our report, as we believe the very essence of our school has shone through. I would like to thank all of you for taking the time to leave positive responses on the Parent View and more importantly, for your continued support throughout the year.
Whilst it is obviously a very positive report, it is clear that we have work to do with regards improving boys’ writing so their attainment and progress matches that of reading and maths. This has been on the school’s development plan in previous years, but we will give it a renewed focus next year, and also take more careful steps to monitor the impact of the strategies we use.
Holly Class have been treated to a menagerie of animals visiting this term. They have learnt about the care needed for dogs, cats, horses, tortoises, chickens and guinea pigs and have also develop great skills in asking relevant questions.
For a second year running, Seend School have returned victorious from the Melksham Schools’ Swimming Gala. After a grueling competition, our predominantly yr 5 team, did the school proud. This should have come as no great surprise as this time last year, despite being the youngest team there, we won and as it was mainly the same children, we knew we had a good chance.
We are all immensely proud.

The last day of the spring term has taken an unusual turn for Holly Class as they are all in pirate clothes. This is a very fitting end to their topic on pirates and whilst they might look a bit scary, I have it on good authority that it is all an act (not sure about the staff though!).
