Dear Parents and Carers

I hope this weekly update finds you well. Thankfully the weather has been a bit better this week and whilst not always dry, we have not needed to have any disruption.

I must say  I have been really impressed with pupil’s punctuality this week which has meant lessons have got off to a flying start. Thank you for supporting this message at home – I have seen a really good improvement in this regard and it was a pleasure to tour round the site today three visitors – Jon Webb, the Regional Director for Ambitions; Sian Thomas, the CEO of Ambitions and The Reverend John Mackenzie who has taken on the leadership of All Saints Church. Thank you to all pupils who welcomed our guests and shared their work with them.

This week has certainly been a very busy and fruitful one outside of the classroom too with the following events taking place:

Mr Purkis and I also spent time with pupils in assembly reflecting on British Values and the need to understand these clearly in 2023.

I think the above would certainly count as “living life to the full.” Well done to all pupils getting involved.

Coming up, we have the following events:

Looking even further ahead, I have sent out this week communication about Christmas Jumper Day and the annual Christmas Meal, as well as details about the Dry Ski Slope preparation for those going on the Ski Trip next year.

There is a huge amount going on – please encourage your child to get involved positively.

Finally, thank you for all of your support as ever. If you ever need to, please contact the office directly and they will pass details to the right person who can help.

I hope you enjoy a restful and peaceful weekend

Kind Regards

John Cornish
