Wherever you’re from, you belong here!’

A few weeks ago, whilst waiting for a ferry to cross over to Staten Island, I looked up to see the above words written across the ferry terminal wall: Wherever you’re from, you belong here! These great words were clearly meant to sum up the spirit of New York. This then triggered thoughts of Burleigh and our school community, as this is something we want everyone here to feel, too. Even though we’ve only been back for a week and a half, there’s a real buzz about the place – an air of excitement. All classes seem to have bonded in record time with their teachers and have knuckled down to work straight away. Our new teachers are settling in quickly, and are already contributing richly to the school. Here’s a reminder of the times and venues for our ‘Meet the teacher’ meetings which will take place next week on Wednesday 19th September. It would be great to see all of you there.

New governors for Burleigh

Mr Coleby, Mrs Keys and Mr Rees-Winter have recently joined the school’s governing body.

New School Uniform

Once again, ‘Thank you’ for the time and attention you give to ensuring your child has the correct school uniform. The slightly lighter shade of purple has brightened up the place considerably! Please ensure that all items of uniform are named.

School trips and clubs

Meetings for the Year 5 trip to Kingswood (3rd-5th Oct) and the Year 6 trip to the Isle of Wight (May 2019) will be held during the ‘Meet the Teacher’ sessions for Years 5 and 6 (see above).

A full programme of after school clubs has started. Now is a good time to try something different and explore what you can do.
