Newsletter 21st April 2023

Dear Parents and Carers,

Welcome back after the holidays. I hope you all managed to enjoy the sunshine and time with friends and family.

The children have started back confidently and have enjoyed meeting up with their friends after the break. The outdoor learning environments are being used well, with flowers and trees blooming. The children love to see the seasonal changes in their environment.

Partnership News

Welcome to Sam Petchey, Head of School at George White Junior and from this term partnership head across Mousehold Infant and Nursery School and George White Junior School. Here is a short message from Mrs Petchey.

Welcome back to the start of the new term. As I officially take on the role of partnership head across Mousehold Infant and Nursery School and George White Junior School, I feel extremely honoured to be leading both schools. I have a fantastic team of experienced, caring and dedicated staff around me, and together we will be able to strengthen what we already have in place for our pupils and our families. This is an exciting time to be part of our partnership, with joint events and opportunities already planned for staff, pupils and parents across this term. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. 

Warmest regards,

Mrs Petchey

Please help keep our children and families safe on the roads and paths outside school. Yesterday there was a collision involving 2 cars, and there were also several cars not following the traffic calming measures. Please be considerate, drive slowly, be mindful of very small children on pavements and crossing the road.
