Our Community Matters
Thanks to your amazing generosity, the Malawi team have set off with approximately 9k to support children in Malawi. The funds will be used to feed children, get them medical appointments, improve school facilities and to help the Sisters at the Kasina Clinic. We have also sent money to Nepal and to Zoe’s Place and Rosie’s Dream. Thank you.
Our local community matters as well. Before she left for Malawi Mrs Middleton, Mr Lloyd and I met with local residents ,councillors and our excellent community policemen because of the bad publicity caused by the actions of one child. A handful of our students cause a problem for the very well behaved majority and we take action against anybody caught around Potters Green as long as we have a description.
The main complaint is actually about cars and how dangerous Potters Green Road is at the end of the school day. I agree with them! The road is narrow with buses trying to get out. With so many cars parking, it is an accident waiting to happen. Please do not park on Potters Green Road at the end of the day. We have agreed with the local Councillors that, if the problem continues, mobile traffic attendants will come down. They can issue fines to anybody parked in the wrong place. Please make sure that you meet your child at the top of the road or we will ask the Council to act at the end of September.
We have also agreed to work with the Moat House Community group to improve the environment. They know that it is not just our students but we could all start by taking our litter home with us.
Thank you for your ongoing commitment to the school.
