Message from the Head Teacher - 26th February 2024
Dear Parents and Carers,
As we begin, we would like to extend a warm welcome back to all our students and their families.
It brings us great pleasure to inform you that the first week of the spring term was a tremendous success. The children have seamlessly settled back into their daily routines and demonstrated exceptional enthusiasm for their learning. We are confident that, through collaboration with you, we can build upon this positive start and ensure a productive and fulfilling year ahead.
We would also like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the success of our "Reading for Pleasure Breakfast" event, which took place on Tuesday 20th February. It was a delightful occasion, and we were thrilled to see so many parents and carers in attendance. The event not only fostered a love for reading among our students but also highlighted the importance of parental engagement in supporting their child's academic development. We greatly appreciate your active participation and hope this event has inspired you to continue promoting a reading culture at home.
As we move forward, I would like to encourage you to continue supporting your child's education at home. Regular attendance, maintaining a consistent routine, and encouraging independent study will greatly contribute to their progress. Additionally, cultivating a love for reading by setting aside dedicated time for reading each day can significantly enhance their literacy skills.
Looking ahead, we would like to encourage you to maintain effective lines of communication with us. If you have any concerns or questions regarding your child's progress or any other school-related matters, please do not hesitate to reach out to the relevant class teacher or myself directly. We firmly believe that open and regular communication is the key to ensuring the best possible education for your child.
Furthermore, we kindly request that you remain engaged with the school community by attending the upcoming parent-teacher Termly Learning Conference – dates for these will be sent out next week, which will provide an opportunity to discuss your child's progress in detail and set goals for the upcoming months. We firmly believe that a strong partnership between home and school is essential in nurturing a child's academic, social, and emotional growth.
Once again, we extend our heartfelt gratitude for your unwavering support in making the start of this term successful. We are excited about the journey ahead and look forward to continuing our collaboration with you as we strive to empower every child to achieve their full potential.
With Warm Wishes
