Welcome back to the start of a new school year; I hope that you all managed to have a wonderful summer and that you are, like me, looking forward to the start of another school year at RTS.
I am delighted to welcome Mrs Styles and Miss Sherwood to our teaching staff as well as welcoming Miss Eckart who will be working with Mr Starkey as a trainee teacher this year.
The school is looking pristine thanks to Mr Gibbons and his team, ready to welcome the children to school on Tuesday. Please remember that Monday is a staff training day.
Over the summer the school has installed new smartboards in every classroom and I am sure that the children will look forward to using our new laptops.
In other staffing news the school has a new kitchen team led by Mrs Joanna Richter, who was appointed during the holiday period. She is a wonderful addition to the staffing team and I look forward to introducing her to the children when the term begins.
You will be delighted to hear that Mrs Heard has given birth to a healthy baby boy named James William. Everyone is doing well and Mrs Heard is looking forward to the rest of her maternity leave.
The week begins quietly as everyone settles in to their new classes although at the end of the week the school will be joining the congregation at St John’s to participate in the service to mark Education Sunday.
Please look out for the first newsletter of the year which will be published shortly; it will contain lots of useful information for all parents.
I look forward to seeing everyone at some point this term.
