Thank you for your continued support regarding trips. The visits are an enriching aspect of the curriculum on offer at Montpelier and, indeed, past pupils tell us they particularly enjoyed these experiences as part of their learning. Contributions to trips are voluntary, however if we do not receive enough contributions to cover the costs, some trips are at risk of being cancelled as the school has to subsidise the shortfall. Where possible, please help the school by making these payments either online or by cheque.
If you would like to volunteer for a trip please contact the School Office once the trip letter has been distributed. We will add your details to the trip volunteer helper list and will do our best to make the process fair and easy to manage.
With the Spring term in full flow, it is easy to overlook what a super lead up to the Christmas break we had, with several shows that were exceptionally well attended by parents and carers. The outstanding efforts of staff and children resulted in performances that left us with some very special memories.
Over the past few days, the international news will doubtless have affected the thinking of many in the Montpelier school community. I therefore took the opportunity to re-read the school’s statement on British Values and reflect upon the commitment to our tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs through the celebration of similarities and differences. Most importantly, I reaffirmed my commitment – and that of our staff and governors – to ensuring that all we hold dear is protected and valued to continue making our school a safe and positive place for our children.
