Welcome Letter

20 September 2017 (by Sara Crowther (sara.crowther))

A very warm welcome to all our children, parents and families.

I am extremely proud and excited to be your new Acting Head of School for Strong Close Nursery School providing education for 3-5 year olds. Previously I have worked in Early Years education (as an Acting Deputy Head, Special Educational Needs Coordinator and Teacher) at Lidget Green Primary and Abbey Green Nursery School. Having lived in, and worked in this area for 30 years, and worked at Strong Close as a Teaching student many years ago, I know what an excellent reputation the school has for providing high quality nursery provision, with an experienced, highly qualified and hard-working staff team.

Our new Acting Executive Head Teacher, Sharon Hogan, is a National Leader of Education and is the Headteacher of Midland Road Nursery School and Lister Park Children’s Centre Cluster in Bradford. As well as supporting the Nursery School Sharon will also be supporting the Airedale and Wharfedale Children’s Centre Cluster, which is led by our Governing Body and provides services for children and families across the district.

Sharon and I would like to invite you to our Welcome meeting Wednesday 27th September at 9.15am (Continental Breakfast provided) or 3.30pm (Afternoon Tea provided) where we look forward to meeting you and introducing our new electronic classroom observation tool with information about how you will be able to access your child’s learning record, securely at home. We do hope that you will be able to attend.

Finally I would like to say please feel free to get in contact if you have any queries or feedback-your views are always very important to us.

We look forward to meeting you on Wednesday 27th September.

Helen Jones
Acting Head of School
