We are pleased to announce that Nursteed School’s new head teacher has been appointed.
Mrs. Kay Vousden, a skilled head teacher with considerable experience, has agreed to assume responsibility for leading Nursteed School from September. Governors were pleased to attract a strong field of candidates and, following a rigorous selection process, had no hesitation in recognising Mrs. Vousden's suitability for the post.
In the summer term Mrs. Vousden will work with Mr. Heath and other members of the staff team to ensure a smooth transition to the new school year.
We’ve had a glimpse of some nice weather in recent days, even if it’s tailed off this week… Here are a few summer term related reminders.
Please ensure that your child’s clothing, especially his/her top, is named. Children have a habit of (sensibly) discarding their tops when the weather gets warmer but are not always so good at remembering to pick them up again. We have a large amount of lost property and would like not to add to it.
An early reminder, but please do provide sun hats and apply sunscreen when things get brighter.
Packed lunches brought from home are stored in a closed storage space out of direct sunshine and heat but we are not able to provide refrigerated facilities. You may want to consider the suitability of your child’s lunch box and provide one with a cooling facility (insulated and/or with ice pack) when the weather heats up.
Don’t forget our textile container for unwanted clothes, belts, paired shoes, bags, hats, bedding and towels. This generates funds for the school, and nothing goes to landfill. It’s an opportunity to generate extra income, promote recycling and help protect the environment.
As some of you are only too well aware, we have had head lice in school. The only way to minimise their impact is for everyone to check and treat their children’s hair thoroughly and regularly. Please take the opportunity of the Easter break to do this so that we can start the summer term without them. Thank you.
Three professional development days remain in this school year. On the days listed below the school will be closed to children:
The last one means that the effective final day of this school year for children is Wednesday July 24th.
(N.B. The leavers’ assembly for Year 6 will be on this day.)
In the summer term we will be starting a collection for a gift for Mr. Heath to mark his retirement from Nursteed School. If you’d like to contribute you can do so via the school office. Thank you.
