Welcome back to school after the summer holiday, we hope that you managed to enjoy the break even though at times the weather was quite unpredictable. I am really looking forward to joining Newlands this term and have been impressed by the fantastic learning environment the school provides for the children. I have had a range of experiences both here in the UK and in Australia, however , I have now finally returned home.....Leicester has certainly changed in the time I have been away and I didn't recognise the Shires (Highcross) when I was last in town.
This half term we will be focusing our attention upon our Newland Cares—Going for Gold strategy to reward and recognise those children who consistently put in 100%.
The start of the new school year is also an ideal opportunity for us to review where Newlands is now and begin to identify where we need to go to ensure we continue to strive for excellence....so on the back of this newsletter is a survey for you and your families to put down your thoughts on how you think the school is doing. Please return them to the school office and I appreciate your assistance in this matter.
Finally I am usually out on the playground first thing in the morning so please feel free to come up and say hello..
