I would just like to say thank you to all of the parents, carers and family members who have taken the time to stop and say hello to me over the past two days. Thank you for making me feel so welcome. It is lovely to meet you all, and so useful to hear your feedback about the school. Selsdon is a fantastic school which has already won my heart!
I have listened to a lot of your comments and ideas. You may have noticed that the gates are now opened earlier, so that you have access to the playgrounds from 8.30am in the mornings, and 3.00pm in the afternoons. I am struck by everyones willingness to support the school and how upset many of you have been to feel that this has not always been welcomed.
I have taken this on board and would like to see you all in and around school as much as possible. With this in mind, from Monday, I will be asking the staff to open the school doors at 8.40am every morning so that you can bring your child(ren) into their classes – if you wish! I know some children prefer to come in on their own, but the offer is there. Children will be brought to you in the playground at the end of the school day as normal.
I am very much looking forward to the year ahead. I believe, that with your help we can achieve great things here at Selsdon!
