We have enjoyed catching up with the children’s news and adventures over the past few days and it’s been lovely to chat with so many of you at the gate. The week has flown by and I’m delighted with how the children have settled into their new classes, making friends and learning new routines with all the staff. I’d like to extend a warm welcome to our new families in Nursery, Reception and across the school. We hope it’s the start of a long and happy partnership with Summercroft. It’s lovely to see the children wearing their uniforms smartly and with pride. Please remember children should wear black shoes (not trainers) and ties should be worn with shirts in KS 2. Thank you for supporting us in this matter.
Newsletters to parents and carers are sent on a fortnightly basis to share children’s achievements and share some of the learning that takes place in classrooms. In addition, Curriculum Newsletters are sent at the beginning of each term outlining our planned themes for teaching. Please do speak with staff if you have a skill/talent or interest which could enrich our topics. We are always happy to involve the wider community.

Unfortunately, our roofing work hit several snags over the Summer and is scheduled to continue for another few weeks. I’m indebted to Mr Camp for his patience over the holidays in managing this project. In addition you will have noticed that the walkway has been refreshed and should protect us from inclement weather as we move between buildings. To support Mr Camp in managing the site, I should like to welcome Mr Glen McKay to the team. Mr McKay will be working from midday and has agreed to be an MSA as well as Assistant Site Manager.
Joining the Early Years Team: Mrs Catherine Hook, Mrs Gill Cannell and Ms Louisa Woodhouse.

Our new staff have settled in quickly and I hope that they thoroughly enjoy their new roles at Summercroft; I know that you will make them very welcome!
