A Better Environment

We returned to school to find the back of the school looking better than it has for years. The school site was a hive of activity over the summer with the replacement of external wall cladding, ceilings, and doors. In addition, we added double glazed windows that will, undoubtedly make classrooms more comfortable and help us to be more energy efficient. I would like to thank our Site Manager, Matty Wojtczak, for his calm, intelligent and industrious approach over the summer. I know we are all grateful for his determination to ensure the school was ready for children and staff.

Welcome back after what I hope was a refreshing summer break. Our staff have been working hard to get the school off to a super start despite building works that caused so many classrooms to be closed for the whole summer. As always, it was a real pleasure to see a school full of smiling faces and the children’s enthusiasm gave everybody a lift on the first day. We have some exciting initiatives that are planned for this year that will further improve the already high quality of education at Montpelier…....more on this in the coming weeks. We are also pleased to have new staff in the school and I know that our parent/carer community will extend a warm welcome to each and every one of them. Finally, congratulations to Mr Tomlinson on his recent wedding and also to our deputy Mrs Bracken (formerly Ms Walker) on her marriage over the summer.
