Weekly Whiteboard

I am delighted to say that we have appointed Mrs.Caroline Norris as Deputy Headteacher from September. Caroline  joined the school fifteen years ago , at the same time as me. We know each other and work together extremely well and I am really looking forward to a close collaboration  on the senior leadership team. I am confident she will provide the support and challenge to me to enable us to remain an outstanding school.

On another note: BON VOYAGE! to the group of 8 adults and their 8 children led by Jenny Ferguson  (our KS2 French specialist) who are visiting Hudimesnil in France for 3 days. We look forward to seeing some photos and hearing about their  experiences with the children and parents from Hudimesnil School.

Enjoy the rest of the term, particularly Healthy Learners Week!
