Warmest welcome back to Morda and a big hello to all those new children in the reception class.
It has been wonderful to see how well the children have settled in to their new classes and begun their learning this week.
We were all of course shocked and deeply saddened by the announcement of the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on Thursday evening. There was a special assembly on Friday morning to mark her passing where we looked back at all her years of service and devotion to the country and the church and had a minutes silence.
We are very mindful that children need to make sense of this period of national mourning and we are working carefully following Mental Health Lead and DFE guidance to ensure we deal sensitively and appropriately during this period.
We very much look forward to the year ahead and seeing our Morda children grow and flourish with Courage Compassion and Fairness.
John and Helen
