Welcome to Whitemoor Academy Weekly Newsletter: 20th October 2023
Head of School Welcome
Thank you to everyone for a fantastic first half term of this school year. We have had a lot to celebrate and are looking forward to what the next half term holds.
Thank you also to those of you who completed the termly parent survey. Your feedback is invaluable. Most of the feedback has been incredibly positive with over 80% of parents stating that their children are happy, feel safe and make good progress in school. Having said this, I would really like to speak to those of you who have disagreed with these comments. As the survey was anonymous, I invite you to please get in touch so that we can see how we can make things better for your children.
I hope that you all have a great week off and are able to enjoy some quality time with your children. Please remember that we do not have any INSET days added on to this half term and look forward to seeing you again on the 30th October.
Take care, Mrs G Hooper Head of School
