A New Academic Year
We have had a brilliant start to the term. It is a delight to celebrate our first full week back with all our pupils present. We have already seen huge gains in pupil punctuality due to the changes in place. Late arrivals have reduced from the first day of term at 28 pupils to 5 today. Well done and tank you to our wonderful families for kick starting that term with effective community spirit. Together we are great.
Old and New Faces
It was exciting welcoming back our children and equally exciting welcoming our new families too. All the children have settled in well. Reception’s staggered admissions are now complete and Nursery pupils will be attending for three sessions next week too!
Due to morning changes, Joan is now holding her Community Café on a Thursday morning. Please do not hesitate to pop in for a cuppa and a chat. All families are welcome.
I am pleased to announce that our ESOL classes will commence this Friday. Due to the fact that we wee oversubscribed, many Parents and Carers are on a waiting list for the next round of classes. We will keep you posted on dates and availability.
Meet The Teacher
This year saw our most successful and highest attended “Meet the Teacher” sessions to date. I would like to thank all the families who attended and also my great staff for leading such welcoming and informative sessions.
To support our efforts to ensure we all have living healthy lifestyles, Alison Asamoah, our borough nutritionist, will be back to lead a session on healthy packed lunches. Whether your child has a packet lunch or a school dinner, I urge you all to attend her workshop. It is going to be packed with useful ideas and suggestions and as always, it will be interactive too! This session will be held in our Dining Hall at 9am on Wednesday, 19th September.
Have a smashing weekend!
