Parent view summary

Just before the Christmas break we invited all parents to complete a short-survey about our school and I am pleased to confirm the results below. Thank you to everyone who completed the survey; the feedback is invaluable and instrumental in future planning for the school. We are pleased that the results are positive and that the school remains a popular choice. We will be focusing on homework and pupil progress in our planning going forward.

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.
