Tricky Words



We would like to invite all parents from Reception class to attend our Phonics Parents information evening on Wednesday 20th September, 5-6pm. 

This is an opportunity for you to find out more about how we use 'Little Wandle' to teach your children the early stages of reading through phonics. 

There will be hot drinks, biscuits available and time for you to ask any questions. You are also welcome to have a look at your child's class and see where their learning takes place.

We look forward to seeing many of you there, please arrive via the main entrance. If you are unable to make it, we will share the information on our school website on Thursday.






 It has been a relaxing time reading in our engaging new library area. 



 The children have really enjoyed having lots to do at break time and lunchtimes. They have been very excited to use our new road markings on their scooter and learn all about road safety whilst having fun. 

Year 6 Prom

All our Year 6 children enjoyed their Prom this year, celebrating an end to thir time at Raynsford Academy. There was food, dancing, games and laughter. They have been a fantastic group and we wish them all the very best at their new school

The Owls, Raynsford FC

On Saturday 13th May, Raynsford Academy FC (children in Year 1) took part in their first ever friendly tournament at Barton Rovers FC. This was a great opportunity for the children to show off all the skills they had been learning at their after school club training sessions and play their first ever match as a team.

The day started early with registration at 8.30am. The whole team and their families came together to support each other, and the atmosphere was incredible. Raynsford played a total of 5 matches, 8 minutes each. These were against local schools in the mid beds area.  

With a few nerves in the first match and up against a team who had played many matches prior to the tournament, they did fantastic and soon found their stride in the second game.

They worked together as a team and represented the school and themselves to the highest standard and as coaches we could not be prouder. From start to finish the team had a blast and after the matches, everyone received a medal.

From September the team will take part in the Mid Beds Mini Soccer League and will be having fortnightly matches. We are also hoping to squeeze in another two tournaments in July – GO TEAM!!!

We are delighted to share with you our new Nurture Room, which will be a calm and quiet place for any child can that may need a little extra support.  We would like to thank everyone that has taken part in and donated to our recent fund-raising events and a massive thank you to our PTA for organising them. Some of the money you raised has gone towards our nurture room.  

Our learning mentors, Mrs Griffett and Mrs Mustoe will be working with children on their social and emotional needs. We have a few final touches but wanted to share the results with you:
