Please bring in coats and water bottles

Summer is nearly over. Because the weather is so changeable, it is sensible that every child brings a coat (or waterproof) to school each day. In the event of light rain we still expect the children to go outside at play time in order to get a physical break before the next lesson. Your child can always leave a spare (labelled) waterproof in school in case they forget (or refuse to!) bring a coat to school. This is far more preferable than cancelling playtimes as it is not practical to leave some children indoors without supervision whilst the majority are outside. Please remind your child to bring a labelled water bottle to school every day.


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.
