Headteacher’s Newsletter – Friday 18th September – Autumn 3

The warm weather has been a  welcome blessing this week and the children have produced some fantastic pieces of work. Please go to our school twitter account – @headparkside – to see the children’s work.  Routines continue to be established and the children have adaped to them incredibly well. Mrs Taylor and myself will drop in to classes this week to see how well the children and staff are doing.  The school photographer comes to school this week on Thursday to take the children’s individual photographs.
