Michaelmas Village Fayre

by Headstart School in Events, Open Day Comments: 0 tags: Events, Open Day

For the first time ever the Ninfield Bonfire Society held their annual Michaelmas Fayre at our school site on Saturday 13 September 2014.  It has been a number of years since I enjoyed a Fayre as diverse as this from dog shows to ferret racing, market and craft stalls to Morris dancing and buskers corner to the reading corner. Tons of other activities took place, from traditional face-painting and a coconut shy, to dog agility sessions and falconry displays. Headstart school site turned into a hive of excitement, as the sun shone throughout the event, making it a great day for the whole family. This was a traditional fayre and more,  a superb day was had by all.


Headstart Open Morning

I was delighted to welcome so many parents and carers to our recent open morning where you all had an opportunity to view the ever developing school; view your child’s work and ascertain progress through reading reports alongside meeting a range of new faces: Mark Gransden (Key Stage 4 and 5 leader), Sue Sheeran (Assistant SENCO), Paddy Boorman (Support Worker) and a range of existing staff.

Parental engagement in education and partnership working are areas in which I firmly believe promote positive outcomes for young people. A major factor in children achieving their potential in school is parents/carers supporting them in a knowledgeable way and being actively involved in school life. It is Headstart’s purpose to provide a safe environment where students can develop academically , emotionally and socially whilst promoting achievement and enabling success.

Headstart believes it is a fully inclusive school catering for the needs of students in a personalised, individualised manner, respecting individuals unique talents and strengths whilst promoting positive outcomes.

I am keen to continue to build upon the positive relationships already established within Headstart School and hope that we will continue to work together to imprve life chances of our young people.
