The last day of term finishes at 1.40pm

We have sent a fair amount of information by email, text and the school website about the last day of the term finishing at 1.40pm. Please remember to arrive at school by 1.35pm so that we can release children safely and swiftly. The after school club will run as normal and if you wish to use this provision please ensure you have registered and booked well in advance. Children return to school on Wednesday 4th January 2017 for the start of Spring Term.


It would be remiss of me not to thank our teaching and support staff for their hard work, commitment and dedication over the past term. Former and new staff help to maintain the success of our school and there is no doubt that our children thrive here. The PTA disco served as a reminder of the generosity of spirit within our parent community. I enjoyed meeting so many parents during the evening and, I must admit, welcomed the many positive comments that were made to me about Montpelier. I will share this appreciation with my colleagues. We enter rehearsals for our 5 seasonal shows now, whilst carrying on with teaching and learning. I look forward to seeing most, if not all, of our parents before the end of term and would like to take this opportunity to wish you a happy, peaceful (but not too peaceful!) holiday break when it finally arrives.
