We are well into the swing of things for the school year now, and there is a lot going on. As you probably know, I spend a lot of time around and about in the school, talking to students and teachers and popping into lessons to see what's happening. Since the start of this term I can honestly say that I have been really impressed with the way our children have started the year. The corridors are quiet and orderly and the classrooms are busy and productive. There are happy faces and lots of smiles, and I see teachers enjoying themselves as much as the children too. On the whole, the school is a wonderfully positive and busy place and it is a joy to be here. I wanted to tell you this, because whilst I recognise that teachers are working hard and doing a good job for our students, it's also equally clear to me that our parents are supporting us in our endeavours at home. As we always say, the education of our children is a partnership of school, parents and children, and on behalf of the school may I say how magnificently well you are supporting us.
There are several future events I would like to draw your attention to. Firstly, on Wednesday 7th November we will be hosting one of our regular coffee mornings. I have asked our school counsellors to prepare a presentation for parents which has the wellbeing of our students as its theme. We will of course remind you closer to the day. Lastly, Friday 16th November is the CES Picnic. This is a great opportunity for you to come and have fun whilst supporting our PTSA charities for this year (please refer to me earlier emails for a reminder of these).
I look forward to seeing you at these events, and thank-you for your continuing support for our school.
