Head's Newsletter

During the 18 months that I have been fortunate enough to work at the school I have thoroughly enjoyed being part of the community, working alongside you all to support your children’s learning and wellbeing. Of course I have not done it alone and I have no doubt that after I have left in September the staff and Governors of the school will continue to work hard for the benefit of all of your children, striving for the very best at all times.

It has been a pleasure to arrive at school each day to work with your children who are so delightful. They have a keenness to learn and an eagerness to follow in Jesus’ footsteps. This is a reflection of the consideration and time taken by everyone who works with them to ensure that they can achieve their God given potential. As many of you know I have two young children and have quite a journey to get to school each day. The new opportunity that I have will enable me to spend some more time with my family but it is still with mixed feelings that I am leaving this vibrant and happy school community.

The Governors and Diocese are working hard to find a new Head teacher and will be writing to you next term with news of this process. In the meantime I look forward to working with you all until the end of July – sharing in your children’s achievements and preparing them for the next steps in their education. I wish you a restful and prayerful Easter and look forward to seeing you all next term.

 

Reports

Parents of pupils in Year 1 to 6 will have received their children’s reports today. We hope that you find them interesting and informative; the teachers have certainly spent a considerable amount of time providing details of the children’s achievements and the next steps in their learning. You will see that there is space for a parent’s comment at the back and staff always find it useful to receive feedback – more importantly though, the children see their parents and the school working together and this is an important message to encourage them to achieve their best. If parents would like to record their comments in the space provided and return them to school we will photocopy the paper and return the original to you so that you do not lose your children’s comments. Many thanks.
