Dear Parents and Carers,

On Wednesday the interviews for Headteacher took place at Hart Hill and I am extremely pleased to be able to say I was successfully appointed.  I feel very privileged to take up the post and really look forward to working closely with you and my fantastic staff team to make your child’s first experience of school a fun and happy one.

Also on Wednesday 10th May 2017 the children were invited to bike or scoot to school.  I was pleased to hear that lots of children took up this opportunity and seemed to really enjoyed the different way to come to school.  Thank you for supporting this event.

The children all had there photographs taken yesterday and it was fantastic to hear that everyone really listened to the instructions and smiled beautifully for the camera; we hope that you are pleased with the results.

Kind Regards
Katey Thompson
Headteacher
