Menston Primary School

Making our world a better place

September 2021

Welcome to the new school year everyone!

I hope that you all had a brilliant summer holiday, that you have had a good rest and are ready for an exciting year ahead.

I’m sure that you will be very pleased to know that we no longer need to stay in our class bubbles and we no longer need to sit facing the front of the classroom. We can sit in groups again and play with more children in the playgrounds. Everyone will be eating their lunch in the lunch hall every day and we can book school trips and residentials.

We will still have to keep on being careful though, so we will continue to clean our hands regularly, keep our classrooms well ventilated and have extra cleaning in place.

I am very excited to be the Headteacher of the school now, although I know that we will all miss Mr Jones. Our new Deputy Headteacher, Mrs Gilmour, will be starting her job here later in the school year. I will let you know more about this later in the term.

If you have anything that you need to ask me about or let me know about, please email the school office, come to see me or give me a call and I will get back to you.

Mrs Wilson
