National Teaching School

Before the summer the Department of Education and the National College of Teaching and Leadership awarded Montpelier the prestigious status of being a National Teaching School. This means that we will be involved in leading system wide improvement across a number of schools in west London. Over time we will take a lead on teacher training, leadership development, professional development and support for schools requiring improvement. More information for which will be available during this term.

After a lovely summer break it was great to see our children returning today for a fresh start to the new academic year. Whilst our youngest children are at the start of their new school lives, it was also pleasing to learn about those who left us in July and the positive start they are making at their respective high schools. So, we wish them well and now welcome our Nursery and Reception children to what I hope will be a happy, successful and rewarding time at Montpelier. For the children who have returned for a new school year, this is a good time to set their sights on being as ambitious as possible during a year of interesting and active opportunities.
