Comic Relief 2021

Today was Red Nose Day for Comic Relief and it was wonderful to see staff and children dressing up as Superheroes, and it was an opportunity for the staff to pay homage to the magnificent NHS critical workers by dressing up in scrubs and wearing badges with the legend: ‘Not all Superheroes wear capes’. We have raised an amazing £200.00!

Safer Internet Day

Today the Children of Mayfield will be hearing about Safer Internet Day 2021.

The theme this year is trustworthiness on the internet, fake news and how to manage it – children should be encouraged to check things they see and read on the internet through other sources such as other websites, books and through talking to people.

Our two key eSafetey words at Mayfield are reinforced at this time, Control and Communicate. Children should always aim to stay in control by blocking, stopping, closing, reporting or logging off if something makes them feel unhappy or unsafe. Children must also be encouraged to communicate if any of these things occur. They can communicate with a parent, teacher, older sibling or other safe adult – a problem shared is a problem halved and this means that the children can begin towards a solution with support.

If you have the opportunity, please talk about at this at home over the next couple of days with your children.

Kind regards

 

Mrs Hawthorne

Sunday Times League Tables 2020

I am thrilled to give you great news at the end of a busy week! The Sunday Times League Tables Top 100 Prep Schools will be published on Sunday 22nd November 2020, but the Sunday Times has contacted me to congratulate Mayfield on being named one of the nation’s top preparatory schools. Our results had improved on the previous year, and consequently Mayfield Preparatory School has reached a very high ranking of 11, up 6 places on last year, our highest ever ranking and our tenth successive year in the Sunday Times League Tables Top 100 Prep Schools! I also note that Mayfield is level on points with the ninth and tenth ranked schools and our Mathematics score is higher than all schools outside the top three see table below). Mayfield is now the highest ranking school in the Midlands and one of the best in the United Kingdom!

I would like to congratulate the children, who always rise to the occasion, and my thanks go to the governors for their solid support, and to all the hardworking staff at the school from Pre-Nursery to Lower III, and including the administration and maintenance staff, whose combined efforts have ensured that our children have flourished in all areas of the curriculum at Mayfield, not just academically but also in sport, ICT, music, drama, languages, the arts and Early Years. Thanks also go to you, the parents, for your ongoing support and vital contribution made at home. It has been a remarkable team effort!

We will continue to do our utmost to provide the best all-round education possible for our children to enjoy at Mayfield Preparatory School! In these challenging times, it is a real fillip to have happy news, so let us all enjoy our success!
