    Our Year 7 & 8 Football Team had a fantastic day at the Newport County Girls Cup football tournament. We entered two seven-a-side teams who competed in different groups. There were some excellent team performances and a real improvement amongst both teams. The following students were all goal scorers on the day: Hibba, Evie, Taylor and Bella. Our top scorer was Evie with six fantastic goals. Hibba was awarded goal of the tournament, scoring in the top left hand corner from the half way line. A huge congratulations to Team 1 who were the runners-ups of the whole tournament. Just a reminder, Girls football is afterschool every Wednesday and Thursday.

    The John Frost School are honoured to have had Michayla Poulton at the heart of our school for 29 years. The students and staff of The John Frost School will miss the unique talent Mrs Poulton always demonstrated of making you feel happier, valued, in fact, just better for spending time talking with her. She liked people and it showed in everything she did. She was passionate about education and its transformative power. Mrs Poulton would move mountains to give children a more equitable experience in their journey of learning, growing and adapting to an ever-changing world. Her mission was to let all children know that they mattered and that those in charge of their education truly cared about them and their families. For those who had the privilege of working with Mrs Poulton, and it was a privilege as her warmth, good humour and superb skill as a specialist in her field made spending time with her rewarding; you had a chance to observe someone who had unmatched skill and expertise in the areas of safeguarding, wellbeing and primary school transition. Mrs Poulton was generous in sharing her expertise and was sought out by educationalists across Newport. Her loss will be felt throughout Newport, not just at The John Frost School.
