Farewell to Mr Andrew Cooper
After 5 happy years, Mr Andrew Cooper has taken a promotion and will be leaving us tomorrow. Andrew has helped to establish the sports curriculum and pre / after school provision at Montpelier, leading it very successfully. He is very popular amongst staff and children alike and I know he has developed some excellent relationships with parents too. He has asked me to thank everybody for their support during his time here and he takes away many fond memories. Andrew will continue visiting the school in his new role, ensuring compliance, and has worked well with Damien and Louise who will lead on pre / after school provision and the curriculum respectively. We wish him every success.
After a busy summer break at Montpelier, the new academic year has started brightly and positively. We welcomed new parents, staff and children, most notably in the Reception and Nursery classes where many families have started a journey through school life that will hopefully be fruitful, invigorating and successful. There have been a number of changes in the school building, all aimed at further enhancing what is already a bright and stimulating learning environment. As always, we start the school year with the singular focus of endeavouring to ensure our children experience the best education possible, underpinned by academic, personal and emotional development.
