September 2017
Dear Parents and Carers,

I hope you all had a relaxing summer break and that your children are looking forward to returning to school. I would also like to say a special welcome to all of those parents and carers of those children starting school this term. I have found Burrough Green to be a very friendly school and I am sure you will too.

I am certainly looking forward to the Autumn Term here with you all in my role as Interim Headteacher and I look forward to meeting as many of you as possible over the next few weeks. I will be available in school most mornings and afternoons when you drop off and pick up your children. In addition to this a ‘Meet the new Headteacher’ meeting has been arranged by the PTA on Monday 18th September at 7.00pm where light refreshments will be served.
I would also like to draw your attention to the dates below for our Mighty Maths sessions which will be held this term. This is a chance for you to come in and join in with Maths lessons in your child’s class. A letter with more detail will follow shortly.

The first Friday Celebration Assembly will be on 15th September at 9am and will continue weekly, except for Friday 6th October which will be our Harvest Festival service held at the church. Other dates, so far decided, for the Autumn are detailed overleaf.

My role over the next term will be to work closely with staff, governors and parents to ensure that your children continue to receive an excellent education here at Burrough Green Church of England Primary School. I am really looking forward to getting to know all of your children in my role as Headteacher as well as teaching RE in Mrs Pledger’s class every Thursday and supporting staff on an on-going basis as they work hard to make learning exciting yet challenging across the school.

Yours faithfully,

Madeline Vosper (Mrs)
Interim Headteacher
