Christmas Celebration 2014 Testwood Baptist Church
It was a truly wonderful celebration at Testwood Baptist Church today. We never fail to be inspired by the talents, enthusiasm and personalities of our children at Calmore Junior School. Well done to each and every child that performed with confidence and professionalism. Thank you to all of you that joined with us today in our Christmas Story and to our friends at Testwood Baptist Church for hosting us once again.
Merry Christmas Everyone!
We have come to an end of a long, hard term. The prospect of Christmas lifts our spirits as we look forward to a well-earned rest. There have been so many highlights this term and here are just a few:
Staff dressed as Hansel & Gretel characters
The year group entry and exit points

I am sure that you would like to join me in thanking all the staff and governors for all their hard work and commitment to the school. On behalf of everyone at Calmore Junior School we wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas!
HANTS School Inspection
The local authority carried out an inspection of Calmore Junior School in late November and they have just sent us a report of the visit. The local authority grade the school as ‘good!’
Here are some of the highlights of the report:
‘Calmore Junior School is a very happy, safe inspirational school where children always come first. This is because all aspects of school life are underpinned by the school’s strong values. There is an exceptionally clear sense of purpose centred on aiming for all children to have the necessary skills to be successful.’
Leadership and management are good
Well thought through behaviour management with good behaviour
Strong sense of community
Children feel valued because the level of care is high
Quality of teaching is either good or outstanding
The learning environment is bright and relevant
Marking is regular and consistent
The new curriculum is good
Good assessment for learning
The staff have a caring, thoughtful relationship with children
As a school we are delighted with the report but will still continue to work tirelessly for all children so that they achieve the best possible outcomes.
It's A Party
The invitations were unusual... the guests were unlikely... and the venue was unconventional. But what a party!
More than two thousand years after the Christmas story first began, the celebrations still continue. The year 3 Christmas show It's a Party! followed the progress of the angels as they delivered unusual invitations to attend an unconventional party. This was a magical show performed so well by the year 3 children. They really are a talented bunch. Well done to all the children that took part and to all their teachers for their hard work.
December 4 Visit from Murphy
Careers Fair 2014
Today saw many different experts and professionals visit Year Six as part of our Careers Fair. The afternoon was a great success and the pupils loved being able to wonder round and chat with people from all different walks of life, asking questions about their jobs and what they have had to do in order to achieve what they have.
A brilliant afternoon and one that will hopefully inspire the pupils to achieve their dreams...
27 November Visit
