The Pines School
Dear Parents, Guardians and Children,
It is a pleasure to be back at school for this summer term, especially after having had such a lovely taste of summer weather over Easter. With this summer weather it was lovely to see so many children dressed in their summer uniform and if you are not sure what your child should be wearing then please do consult the re-issued uniform policy on the website.
Kate Davies, our soon to be Headteacher, has begun to work with Jatinder, our Interim Headteacher and myself, attending meetings and joining in the conversations and decisions so important to the future of our children’s education. We are currently advertising for a substantive new Deputy Headteacher and Assistant Headteacher and we believe that these two key appointments will help bring extra support both for our teachers and children but also for you as parents, guardians and carers.
I wanted to thank so many of you completing the questionnaire shared at the Parent evenings last term and the results will be shared with you all once analysed. This is an important exercise for school governors as well as for the staff and comments will be actioned if at all possible. Sometimes due to cost, safeguarding or custom and practice we cannot meet everyone’s requirements but I promise we will do our best.
Once our new appointments are made I will be able to share the information with you all but in the meantime I am looking for a new parent governor. If you feel strongly about the success and future of our school then please contact me to discuss what it means to be a governor at The Pines. I would be delighted to meet anyone who expresses an interest in this most important role.
In the meantime, I wish you all a very successful and enjoyable summer term,
Carole Ann S Roycroft, Chair of Governors
