I hope that you all enjoyed a restful and happy summer holiday. Your children have returned to school ready and excited to learn in their new classes and have settled back into school with positive attitudes.
I would like to take this opportunity to welcome our new reception pupils to Bowmansgreen. They spent their first full morning in their new classes, having great fun exploring and enjoying their new classrooms and learning environment. The reception staff team were impressed by how well they all settled in and look forward to welcoming them again tomorrow.
During this morning’s assembly, pupils were reminded of our school rules and values.
School Rules: Be kind, be safe, be respectful
Truth and Honesty
Courage and Determination
All staff will be looking out for pupils going over and above – demonstrating excellent behaviour and conduct and consistently displaying our school rules. These expectations will be reflected and reinforced in our new behaviour policy which will be introduced to parents this half term.
Please can we remind parents to ensure that all items of their child’s school uniform are named. Pupils looked really smart and ready to learn today. To ensure that this continues throughout the year, we need to help pupils take responsibility for their appearance and equipment and they can only do this if all of their belongings are named so that they can find them easily if they misplace them. Each class has a fabric marker which they will ask pupils to use to label any unnamed items next week.
Don’t forget to take a look at the calendar on the school website to keep up to date with the activities and events taking place this half term. These include our monthly book swap event, a Macmillan Coffee Morning, our first curriculum evening of the year, a FOBS disco and our Harvest Festival celebration. There is lots to look forward to and get involved in.
It really is a pleasure to be back to school with our fantastic pupils who are already working hard and doing themselves proud. I am sure that this year will be another successful one at Bowmansgreen and look forward to working closely with you all to ensure that our school continues to go from strength to strength.
