I love the beginning of Autumn term- children in pristine uniforms with happy smiling faces and relieved parents, delighted to return to the routine that school brings. School is full of the sound of new learning, excitement and fun!
Coming back to lead High Hazels, after working away in London this past year, has been really lovely . There are some new staff and a number of interesting changes that have happened in my absence. Lots for me to learn about. Lots of new children too- so many names to learn!
That mix of the familiar contrasting with the new is, I suspect, what most of the children experience too as they begin a new academic year. It can be a little unsettling at first but they soon get back into the swing of things. Happily, the youngest children settle into school routines so quickly and confidently that teachers are often heard to remark that it seems like they have always been with us!
As the nights draw in and the weather cools, our summer holiday seems like a distant memory. There are so many exciting times ahead for us however; residential trips for Y6 and Y4, theatre visits, and new topics to learn about. Don’t forget we also have the now famous ‘Lantern Parade’ to plan for too!
Please make sure that you have downloaded the ‘My ed’ app on your phone so that you can be kept up to date with all things High Hazels.
Encourage your child to come to school every day and arrive here on time for the very best start.Let’s work together to make this year the best yet.
Welcome back to school!
