7 November 2014

Dear parent /carer

 

Thank you to all the parents and students who attended the recent School Opening event and Open Evening; I am sure many of you will have read the super news reports in both the Advertizer and the Shropshire Star documenting these events and others.

 

I am delighted to announce the following staff appointments:

 

Joining us as Assistant Head in our Primary phase is Carol Jones. Many of you will already know Carol; she joins us in January following her time at Gobowen School where she is currently the deputy head following a long secondment as the acting headteacher. Carol has strong connections to our school and community and will be a real asset to our team.

 

Alex McKinnon joins us from Church Stretton School as our Head of Mathematics.

 

Appointed to Head of English is Rhian Phoenix; Rhian has worked at the school for many years and will now lead the department.

 

Phase Managers have been appointed and I welcome Zoe Mottershaw and John Holmes to these exciting roles. Primarily, these roles will focus on pastoral issues as well as ensuring students make required progress across all their subjects.

 

Just as a reminder, if parents have an issue they need to raise with school, the following procedure may be of use:

If issue remains unresolved, Assistant Head Primary If issue remains unresolved, Head of Phase

In the morning class teachers are preparing for the day and settling pupils for learning. If you wish to speak to the teacher please either phone or call into the school recepton and they will get a message to the teacher who will telephone you at the earliest opportunity.

Just a reminder that Review day for secondary students and parents in on 20 November. Normal lessons are replaced with extended appointments with tutors. Letters have been sent home to invite you to select an appointment time.

As previously communicated, most letters that do not require a reply are sent out via e mail and placed on the school website. Hard copies will be available in the glass foyer of the main reception. Please contact school with any updated e mail addresses.

Message from the Head of School

St Martins School is a very special place and it is my privilege and pleasure to be leading the school at this exciting stage in the schools history.

As a 3-16 through school at the heart of the community of St Martins, we are  able to deliver child centred, individually tailored education because of our small size and unique position in the community.

The family ethos of the school surrounds all who work  and study here creating a safe,  supportive and nurturing environment. We value academic progress and social development equally .

Our children are individuals, respected for their differences and celebrated for their strengths. Within this caring family environment our children feel confident to push themselves to achieve the best they can, they enjoy an exciting and sometimes daring   curriculum which challenges and stretches them. We love our school and we hope when you visit you will too.

I look forward to meeting you all on Open Day.

Sue Lovecy
