September 2017: Beginning of the Year Newsletter
Welcome back to everyone and I hope you all had a lovely Summer break. As we begin another school year, I want to thank you very sincerely for your support of my work as principal and your support of the teachers in the school. This support is very important for the smooth running of the school and it is genuinely appreciated. I look forward to working with you and your children during the coming year. Please feel welcome in the school at all times and make an appointment to discuss any concerns at a mutually convenient time. If you wish to contact me by phone, the best time would be between 11.15 and 12.30 each day. If I’m not available at other times, I will return your call as soon as possible. Please find useful information below.

As we come to the end of this school year, it is time to reflect on the work and activities that have taken place during the year. No doubt your children are tired and ready for their summer break – I’m sure you are too as are all staff members. It has been a very busy year and hopefully we will all have plenty of time to re-charge our batteries and enjoy the sunshine. I wish each of you a very happy and safe Summer holiday period. The school will re-open on 31st August.
