Core Books roll-out
If your child brought home a Core book this term, it is due to be returned on Tuesday 8th February. We hope you are enjoying reading your book at home and appreciate the positive feedback this scheme has already received. We look forward to offering Core books to the second half of each class before Half Term and ask that books on loan are returned promptly. For this unique programme to work it is really important that you help us by ensuring that books are returned on-time.
With the Spring term in full flow, it is easy to overlook what a super lead up to the Christmas break we had, with several shows that were exceptionally well attended by parents and carers. The outstanding efforts of staff and children resulted in performances that left us with some very special memories.
Over the past few days, the international news will doubtless have affected the thinking of many in the Montpelier school community. I therefore took the opportunity to re-read the school’s statement on British Values and reflect upon the commitment to our tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs through the celebration of similarities and differences. Most importantly, I reaffirmed my commitment – and that of our staff and governors – to ensuring that all we hold dear is protected and valued to continue making our school a safe and positive place for our children.
