Headteacher's News March 2017Download PDF


Since September 331 different children have been late 899 times. Shocking. Arriving on time is something that only parent and carers can dictate. Please support us in improving punctuality because the disruption to lessons is unacceptable. During a recent monitoring visit by Governors, it was noted that every lesson had started by 9am and that late comers were disturbing the teaching and learning in their respective classes.

This newsletter provides a good overview of the wide range of curricular activities that have taken place during the past few weeks. Even more information is available at https://twitter.com/Montpelier_Sch where you can see photographs of school life. I have drawn attention to the importance of viewing school assemblies and performance as community events and the role that can be played in supporting us at such times. There is important information about absence before and after school holidays as a change has been made to the school’s attendance policy. My thanks to our administrative, support, teaching and leadership teams for making sure that children here have had a fun and informative few weeks. I would like to wish everybody in the Montpelier School community a happy Easter holiday and look forward to seeing you again in April.
