Welcome back to another year at Old Mill. I would particularly like to welcome all of our new pupils, parents and staff!
I hope you all had a wonderful holiday—the weather this Summer has certainly been the best that I can remember for a long time!
Mrs Peckover takes up her new role of Assistant Headteacher. Mr Ahmed starts as our new Year 6 teacher. Miss Addison has returned from maternity leave and we are joined by Mrs Purdey-Piggin to cover Mrs Blount’s maternity leave during the Autumn term.
Pupils in Year 4 will all be learning a musical instrument this year, free of charge!
Each year group will be sending out a ‘Welcome to the Autumn Term’ letter to parents detailing what topics are to be covered, any up and coming trips and events and daily information relating to P.E., homework etc. These will be with you by the end of the second full week. There will be a similar letter at the start of the Spring and Summer terms too and I hope they will support the improved communication for parents we wish to achieve, referred to in the parent questionnaires in the Summer term.
