Thank you 2018-2019: Chair of Governors

Dear Parents and Carers, 

As another academic year draws to a close, on behalf of the Governors, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support of the school.  It has been an amazing year with FOSS organising some fantastic events. A lot of hard work goes on behind the scenes ensuring that every event runs smoothly for which we are very grateful.  

We have also had the incredible StreatFest for the first time, which I am sure will soon overshadow Glastonbury! A big thank you to the StreatFest team for making the day one to remember.

Fundraising is vital in ensuring we are able to update, improve and enrich the school environment and this wouldn’t be possible without the support of you the parents, carers and friends of the school. Thank you.

It is always good to end any year on a high note and this year I am delighted to confirm that following the recent SIAMS inspection Streatley has again been awarded a “Good”. Thank you to everyone in school worked extremely hard to ensure the day went smoothly. A copy of the report is attached.

Have a great summer. Once again thank you for your support.

Kind regards,

Mr D Lowery

Chair of Streatley School Governing Body.

Inspection News March 2018

Dear Parents and Carers,

We were very recently inspected by Ofsted as part of their School Inspection Cycle. This is a thorough process and we were visited by the South East’s Regional Inspector, Chris Russell.

He was very clear, concise and he collected as much as possible within his time frame. Streatley School Inspection March 2018

Our children, families and staff all are captured so well by him. It is a great report for both current and prospective parents to read.

Kind regards,

Miss L Roberts

NSPCC Share Aware 6/02/18

Dear Parents/Carers,
The NSPCC’s ‘Speak out. Stay safe’ programme is visiting our school to make sure our pupils have the knowledge and understanding they need to stay safe from abuse.
I am pleased to tell you that we will be working with the NSPCC, the UK’s leading children’s charity, who will be delivering their ‘Speak out. Stay safe’ programme on Tuesday 6th February. This is a nationwide programme for every primary-school-aged child in the UK. With the help of their friendly mascot Buddy, they’ll be presenting an assembly and workshop to the children in our school.
“NSPCC has helped me to build the confidence to tell people about my worries and problems.” Child’s feedback

What is the ‘Speak out. Stay safe’ programme?
Through child-friendly, interactive assemblies and workshops their specially trained staff and volunteers will give our children information about how to keep themselves safe from harm and how to get help if they have any worries. They sensitively discuss issues like bullying and sexual abuse, without using scary words or adult language.
We have seen the content of the materials and are confident that they are appropriate for primary-school-aged children. By the end of their visit, we are convinced children will feel empowered – knowing how they can speak out and stay safe.
“Presentations and workshops were fun and engaging on a serious topic” – Sibford Junior School, Oxfordshire

If you would like any more information about the NSPCC ‘Speak out. Stay safe’ programme, including frequently asked questions, you can find it on the NSPCC website or please come into speak to me and I can provide more information.

Talking about the Underwear Rule with your children
The NSPCC’s work in schools will help encourage conversations about staying safe and they have a number of child-friendly materials to help you carry on the conversation afterwards. That includes ‘The Underwear Rule’, a simple way for parents to help keep children safe from sexual abuse, without using scary words or even mentioning sex.
The guide uses the rules of PANTS to teach children that their body belongs to them and them alone. You can find out more and download the free resources at
If you’d like to know more about the NSPCC’s work, or take a look at the wide range of information and advice which is available for parents and carers, please visit their website

Yours sincerely,
Mrs Fenwick-Stubbs
Deputy Safeguarding Lead

Three Streatley children compete in Judo: November 2017

Three Streatley boys did brilliantly this weekend.  It was a great day and they all came back with medals and victories.  Cai won both his matches against boys with orange belts (two belts above him) and romped proudly home with his gold medal and showed great sportsmanship when he hurt one of his opponents.  Catrin was so proud she burst into tears 😊. Adam (Cai’s dad).

We have a 7k budget. 5k to go… Phase 1 is the display screens. Thank you Mr White.
