Head Teacher's Blog 17th September 2018

17th September 2018

We are very definitely back in the swing with lots of exciting things to tell you about.

This week we’ll be sending home the clubs brochure; there are a few changes due to available staffing and we have also considered how popular the clubs have been previously. If your child is attending recorder lessons please remind them to bring their recorder with them.

Last week our Chair of Governors, Bill Grisdale, stepped down due to pressure of work. Bill has given of his time generously and has been a great supporter of Swansfield Park - fortunately he will remain as a governor. He has been replaced by Julie Henderson who is a retired head teacher and a very experienced school leader. I am sure that she’ll be in school soon to meet you.

This Thursday at 3.15pm there is the Ford Castle meeting for our year 4 children, come along and find out what the residential visit is all about.

As ever we are monitoring the attendance and I’m pleased to say that we have made a good start with a whole school attendance of 97.1%. Congratulations to Beech, Maple, Rowan and Larch who all have 100%.

Please can you remember that all children need a PE kit - white T shirt, purple shorts with sand shoes for indoors and a track suit with trainers for outdoor games.

Other events this week include:

  • The Friends of Swansfield Park AGM on Wednesday at 7pm in the Studio
  • Year 6 assembly with Mr Hall from The Duchess’s Community High School is on Wednesday morning
