Head Teacher’s Message

I used the picture below in my weekly note sent out to all staff recently. We have a lot to smile about. Staff are working very hard to help all of our pupils succeed and to understand what a positive attitude to learning is. The majority of pupils get on well every day, showing respect and enthusiasm for their work whatever problems they may have. There is a quotation from Henry Ford “whether you think you can or you think you can’t you are probably right.” I believe that all of our pupils can succeed and should aim for the best they can be. A smile and words of encouragement at home and school can make all the difference to life chances and give young people the confidence to try something new. Thank you to all of you who help young people by modelling a positive attitude with your smile combined with an honest dialogue. Working together we can create great opportunities for young people in our care.
