The End of the MLE

Over the course of the last 18 months, we have realised that the MLE (Fronter) is not working in the way we had intended. Repeatedly lost passwords, accessibility issues on tablets / smart phones and general navigation issues mean than that parents / carers get frustrated and many children do not always get the access to spellings or homework they need. We have now decided to close down the MLE and replace it with a more engaging and accessible online platform, specific to Montpelier and its families. The school has been working with a local company to design a new online platform that will have ease of use and high quality content at its core. The site will be launched during the autumn term but until then both spellings and homework will be sent home either in paper form or via email. Please bear with us during this transition phase. It will be worth the wait.

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.
