In order to minimise disruption to your child’s learning we kindly request that medical appointments (GP and dental) are made outside school hours, wherever possible. To ensure the safeguarding of children, our office staff are required to ask for an appointment letter or card when a child is collected for an appointment during the day. Please do not be offended by this as it is a standard safety procedure. If a card or letter is not produced, whoever is at the reception desk may need to refer this to a senior member of staff. Thank you in advance for your cooperation in this matter.
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.
