PTA Meeting Thursday, 8th March 7.45 p.m. to 9.00 p.m.

I look forward to seeing as many parents as possible at this important meeting after the half term break. It is vital that attendance is high because key decisions will need to be made regarding the 2018 Summer Fete which has been scheduled for Saturday 30th June. Following my meeting with the Chair of the PTA this week, it is unclear what parents and carers will be committing to or whether a summer fete is even possible. Please do mark this date in your diaries – an agenda for the meeting will be emailed to parents before the half term break.

At this meeting, the school makes requests for funding to support activities such as the reception dance teacher, Enabling Enterprise, curriculum trips and workshops and so forth. Currently, there is some concern about whether these activities can run next year.



As we reach the end of the first spring half-term, staff have worked hard to ensure our children have been able to secure a good level of progress. The commitment of teaching, support and administrative staff, combined with the enthusiasm and resilience of our children, means that Montpelier continues to thrive throughout the year. At this mid-point of the academic year we begin a re-energised and sustained effort to meet the high expectations we have for all aspects of school life.
