Challenging today's child to be tomorrow's future

Newsflash: Welcome back! Our value for term 1 is honesty

Principal’s Welcome


A huge welcome back to everyone at Mountford Manor and a special welcome to our new children in nursery and reception. I hope that you have all had a relaxing summer break and are ready to start the new school year with lots of energy and enthusiasm. We have some new members joining the Mountford team this school year. We have Miss Redgate teaching in 3R, Miss Bloomfield is a trainee teacher in year 2 and Miss Baker is a trainee teacher in year 4. We also have Cracker, our school dog. She is a Cockapoo (a cross between a Cocker Spaniel and a Poodle) and 3 months old. Cracker will mainly live in my office but will be seen around school every now and then, she especially loves to listen to children when they read.


Our Value for this term is HONESTY, ‘If it’s not right don’t do it; if it’s not true don’t say it.’ Please talk to your children about honesty and the importance of telling the truth.


Our whole school topic for term 1 is ‘What can we learn from Roald Dahl?’ Each year group will focus on one of Roald Dahl’s books and we have a performance about Roald Dahl by a theatre company near the end of term. Linked to Roald Dahl’s book ‘The Enormous Crocodile’ reception, year 1 and 2 will be visiting Crocodiles of the World based in Burford please keep a look out for the letters.


Please remember if you have any worries or issues please come in and see me.


Here’s to a great school year.
