Changing End Of Day Collection Arrangements
Sometimes there is an emergency that causes an arrangement for the collection of children to be changed at short notice. These times should be rare and certainly not as frequent as they have been this term. It is unhelpful to receive a call 15 minutes before the end of the school day to be informed that somebody else is collecting a child as this places the school under immense pressure at one of the busiest times of the day. We would be grateful if you provide at least a day’s notice so that we can communicate this information efficiently and ensure safety.
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.
