End of each term office arrangements

I would like to thank everybody for cooperating with the early closure of the office last term. This enabled administrative and teaching staff to better prepare for the new term rather than working in their own time during the break.

School Council

In the Autumn term we raised over £1,300 for good causes selected by the School Council. Thank you for your support. The School Council members meet fortnightly to discuss ideas relating to the running of the school and to agree upon charities that are important to them. Well done, School Council, for your hard work and commitment to our school and others.

Happy new year and a warm welcome to the new term. We start 2018 looking forward to an interesting and optimistic year, with the next two terms continuing our renewed focus upon teaching and learning, the school’s core purpose. We are as determined as ever to ensure our children achieve well within a happy, safe and secure environment, despite having to make some changes due to challenges being faced by all state schools. The latter part of the autumn term illustrated all that is great about Montpelier – inspired children enjoying lessons, trips and challenging activities, parents and carers sharing in events leading up to the holiday – including the highly successful PTA Disco and many performances – and staff whose dedication and commitment always give the school its particular “edge.”
