Welcome Back

10 September 2017

I hope you are all feeling refreshed after the summer holidays and enjoyed the sunshine (when the sun made an appearance!). I am really pleased with all our children, who have returned to school with lots of enthusiasm, ready to face the new challenges that this academic year will bring. May I extend a special welcome to our new families who have joined us from other schools, and to our Reception children who have settled in with their peers and are eager to get ‘hands on’ with their learning. We welcome three new teachers to the school: Miss Cook and Miss Wallace, who are teaching our two Reception classes; and Miss Whittingham, teaching class 5L. I am sure you will join me in congratulating Mr Kell and Miss Mugal (now Mrs Tayeb) on their recent marriages. Miss Wallace and Miss Cook are pleased to see their new Reception pupils settling in well. All staff have been working hard preparing for the current term and I have no doubt that your child will have already engaged in fun and interactive sessions in their new class. I encourage you to come and meet your child’s new class teacher and see their classroom at our forthcoming ‘Meet the Teacher’ event. Mr Watson, Headteacher
