8th October 2021
What a fantastic start to the week it was: all of the school back in church, singing their hearts out and generously bringing items to add to the harvest collection for the food bank. It was a wonderful start to the week. I have really enjoyed showing various people around the school this week. We have had some prospective parents visit and I have also shown around many people interested in the permanent headteacher vacancy. So many of these visitors commented on the positive behaviour of the pupils and what a welcoming environment Northaw has; both are things which I can relate to, as a new member of the team. The school community should be very proud of this. One prospective headteacher commented that there is smile around every corner you turn. This has to be one of the best bits of praise we can receive; a place where everybody is happy and positive.
Next week, we are looking forward to the return of ‘normal’ break and lunchtimes restrictions arrangements, after a recent review of our risk assessment. Since the start of this year, when many were lifted for schools, we have taken a steady and cautious approach to making any changes to our procedures. We will continue to limit mixing inside at this time, with the exception of visiting church as this is a very airy and large space.
Wishing you all a marvellous weekend and see you on Monday.
