Start of the day - Infants
Given that we are now into January, we would like to encourage parents and carers to leave children in the playground before 8.50am. Currently, supervision is available and there is always somebody at the gate to monitor safety. At the very least, we do require adults to move away from class lines before 8.50am. This is still not the case and causes difficulty in terms of our staff safely being able to observe children at the start of the day.
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.”
