A New Nursery Playground

We are in the final stages of preparing our new nursery playground. The play space will be almost three times as large and it will be much closer to the Reception playground and the rest of the school. We are hoping to share our ideas about how the new space will be used later this term and will also be consulting some of our pupils for their ideas. 

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.
