Glade Hill Primary and Nursery School

We are Golden and we SPARKLE

Start of Autumn Term 2 - Headteacher letter

Dear Parents and Carers of Glade Hill,


I hope you all had a nice half-term break. It has been so lovely to see all of the 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 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 your child’s learning. There is a ‘Stay and Learn’ for our F2 (Reception) parents and carers, more Excite and Engage drop ins for Year 5 and 6 and a ‘Cuppa, Cake and Chatter’ meeting for parents to learn more about how to support your child’s reading and writing. We will also be having our first parents’ evenings of this year on Tuesday 15th and Wednesday 16th November, so make sure you return a slip for each of your children with your preferred time slots as soon as the letters go out later this week.


This Friday in our weekly celebration assembly, myself and Mrs Want (Assistant Headteacher) will be starting to announce which classes have the best attendance each week, and these classes will earn extra outside time. Take a look at our website to see which classes won!


Finally, make sure you also check out our website for useful information regarding what your children are learning in their classes. Our teachers have been working hard on the ‘Class Pages’ and they all contain photographs, examples of work and useful links. I hope you enjoy looking at them.


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


Mrs Stapleton - Headteacher
