Head's Welcome 2022
I am delighted to be starting as the new Head of School and cannot wait to meet the children on Monday morning.
Throughout this week, you will find me on various gates welcoming children as they return to school. I will also be aiming to be around at the end of the day, when I hope to have a little more time to speak with parents and begin to get to know you all better. Please do come and say hello!
I am sure yourselves and the children have mixed feelings about returning to school. I must confide that I have these feelings too! These include a mixture of nervousness and excitement.
Something that has helped put my mind at ease is meeting and working with the staff at Rushy during the inset days last week. Adults have been busily preparing for the new term to ensure the school is a welcoming, vibrant and inspiring learning environment.
In creating my first assembly to share with children this week, I stumbled upon the below quote from Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie:
The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease for ever to be able to do it
I think this is the perfect thought to begin our new school year with. I am looking forward to working with you on our journey towards supporting the children to reach their full potential.
