HEAD OF SCHOOL MESSAGE – 11th September 2015

HoS Message Banner

I would like to extend a very warm welcome to all our pupils and parents.  This year promises to be even more exciting, as we continue to grow, and add to the provision that we offer.  We have a number of new staff who have joined the academy.  In reception, we have Mr Kenney, in year 2 we have Mr Simmonds, in year 3 we have Miss Russell and in year 5 we have Mr Cook. 
This academic year, we are focusing on a number of key areas, and would appreciate you working with your child at home on them.  The first are times tables, the second is spelling and the final area for term 1 is capital cities of the world.
We will be continuing our achievement raffle this academic year, and the prizes for the raffle will be announced soon. 
Senior leaders will offer drop-in sessions for parents on Mondays, and would welcome visits from parents.    Final dates for the term will be communicated when this is finalised. 
Finally, below are some key dates over the coming term.  These are subject to change, and you will be informed if this is the case.
