With the change in weather it is good to see children arriving to school with coats, hats, gloves and scarves. Please ensure every item is clearly labelled to ensure lost items can be promptly returned to the owner. We have hundreds of pounds’ worth of unlabelled items in lost property, most of which has to be thrown away as charity shops do not accept school uniforms.


Last half term we finished our International Week with the annual highlight of the International Food Fair which was a resounding success, due to the commitment and hard work of the Parent Teacher Association (http://montpelierpta.org.uk/international-food-fair). The opportunity to share the world’s kitchen with our children and staff is both an exciting and, increasingly, vital part of the education offered here. Events over the past few days have reminded us of the need to recognise and cherish all that is positive about our diverse and harmonious local community. The strength of our values at Montpelier is central to our success and achievements. This was confirmed to me by many of the 40 parents who toured our school this week in the hope their child might be successful in gaining a place here next year.
