I had a lovely day in school on Monday. The children were showing all the new words they are learning. I was delighted. A wide vocabulary makes for an articulate and confident young person who is set up to succeed in later life.
Life has changed for me recently. I am spending at least three days a week at our partner school in Leyland, Farington Primary. However, my heart and my attention, are very much still with Marus Bridge as well! I know the day to day running of school is going well in the capable hands of Mr. Aldridge, Mrs. Atkinson and everyone else. When I am at Farington, we talk on the phone or on Teams daily and the buck still stops with me in terms of school ethos and culture and the quality of education.
On a lighter note, I was overwhelmed last week by a gesture from one of our grandparents. We have had a large cash donation as a thank you from the family. I have never known such a generous contribution in all my years in education. I want to say a massive THANK YOU from everyone here. We would like to spend the money on a large and beautiful history mural to go in our Key Stage Two department. It will look amazing and be enjoyed by children for years to come. With the family’s permission we would like to put a plaque alongside this artwork with a dedication to the family.
I am in school on Thursday and Friday and hope to see you on the gate.
If I don’t manage to see you, I would like to wish you a restful and enjoyable half term.
All the very best
