Happy New Academic Year Everyone! I was delighted to welcome everyone back to school yesterday - so many smiling faces, all eager to meet up with their friends and share their summer news - and that was just the staff! It really was lovely to see all our wonderful pupils again after our summer break - we welcomed 12 new pupils, 5 new members of staff and everyone else from last year - in total 97 pupils! The majority of pupils have remained with the same staff team but some have naturally changed classes - so far everyone seems very happy and settled!
I have spent a lot of time today going through the diary for this forthcoming term to identify dates for all the various events that take place during this very busy term - dare I mention we have set the dates for all our Christmas activities!! A calendar will be sent home this week for parents/carers in order for those important dates to be shared with all!
For the first time in ages there was no building work during the summer holidays so no changes to share! Actually there is not any spare building within school left to change so unless we build on our roof I think this is probably it! Mind you I do still have a vision of a purpose built rebound therapy room within the garage space but.....!! I received notification from The Lords' Taverners that our new minibus is moving up the production line - still hopeful for it being delivered around Christmas!
As usual we will be holding our annual Macmillan Events at the end of this month which is a great opportunity for parents/carers to come into school and meet new class teams whilst raising money for a wonderful cause at the same time - I hope to see many of you then.
