Head's Newsletter

Dear children, parents, staff and governors,

I have some wonderful news to tell you all this week.  As you know Mrs. Husain has been appointed as yourHeadteacheras of September this year.  Therefore Mrs. Husain and the governors have been interviewing candidates for the post of Deputy Headteacher.  I am delighted to be able to tell you that Mrs. Viana has been appointed as Deputy Headteacher as of September 2017.  This is such good news for St. Joseph’s school because both Mrs. Husain and Mrs. Viana have taught here for the last six years and the children know and love them both.  They are both very much looking forward to taking up their new roles and working with you all.  I am sure that you will join me in congratulating Mrs Viana on her appointment.

Our year 6 children have had a very busy week and have now completed the end of KS2 assessment tests.  Today they are spending the day relaxing in Regents Park.  Well done to the children and staff.

If the sun should ever make an appearance over the next few days, can I remind parents to put sunscreen on the children before they come to school and to ensure that they bring their school sunhats with them to wear at playtimes.  Please go tothe website of ACE who supply our school uniforms to buy a school sunhat for your child.  

The next Parent Partnership Meeting will be held on Tuesday 23rd May at 9am in the school hall.  It will be lovely to see you there.

Yours sincerely,

Mrs. V. Richardson
Head Teacher
