Glade Hill Primary and Nursery School

We are Golden and we SPARKLE

Letter from the Headteacher - Start of Autumn 2

Dear Parents and Carers of Glade Hill,


I hope you all had a nice half-term break. It has been so lovely to see your children back in school this week and ready to learn.


This next half-term is always a busy one, so make sure you check the MarvellousMe app, your Arbor app and your emails for updates, reminders and messages regarding all the fun things we are going to be doing in school. If you do not yet have the app, please speak to a member of our Office team who will be able to help you get set up. This app is also used to send ‘badges’ when your child has been praised by a member of staff, so keep a look out.


There are lots of opportunities coming up as well, for you to get involved in school and find out about your child’s learning. There are ‘Stay and Learn’ sessions for our F2 (Reception) and more Excite and Engage drop  ins for Buttercups and Bluebells parents and carers. We will also be having our first parents’ evenings of this year next week on Monday 13th and Tuesday 14th November, so make sure you return a slip for each of your children with your preferred time slots as soon as possible. We are hoping that our School Cook will be attending part of the Tuesday session, providing samples for parents and children of our amazing school meals!


Finally, after being in contact with his family, we are hoping to create some in-school memorials to our Year 1 child who passed away shortly before the school holiday. Our FRoGS parent group (Friends of Glade Hill School) will be meeting with school staff soon to discuss how we can raise money for this, and once we have decided on a fitting tribute we will be sending out information to parents and carers. I am sure you will join me in sending all our love and support to the child’s family at this sad time. If any child or family has any personal messages they wish send to the family, we will be putting a memorial book in the office for people to add to. You can also send any messages via email which we will print to include in the book.


I look forward to seeing you all very soon, kindest regards,



Mrs Anna Stapleton - Headteacher
