Parent Helpers

Yesterday our Year 2 children visited Ealing Abbey as part of their curriculum studies. It was wonderful to see parent helpers giving their time to this trip – but also essential. Thank you to all the parents who volunteer their time to supervise curriculum trips each term. Without this voluntary help we simply could not fulfil such a broad and vibrant range of curriculum opportunities and we look forward to seeing more of you throughout the academic year.


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.”
