It has been brilliant to see all our children and families again after the summer break. The children have settled back into work and routines with the minimum of fuss and I am pleased with such an excellent start to the new school year. It has also been a pleasure to welcome Miss Nicola Batham, our new teacher in Key Stage 1, and see her working so well with her class this week. Our Reception teachers, Mrs Sarah Hawker and Miss Hannah Hurst, have been busy getting to know their new children through a series of home visits. Look out for our new Reception children as they start school next week, when they shall be doing either mornings or afternoons before joining us full-time on Monday 19 September.
