Dear Parents,

This week we celebrated World Happiness Day, rather aptly on the day we all returned from our long weekend. It was great to see so many of our Primary parents celebrating with our pupils and generally being..well…’happy’! As always, please do look out for the article on our website.

This week has also been a busy week for several of our staff who have been completing their middle-leader training, while we have also hosted meetings here with colleagues from all the other King’s Group schools at the termly Primary Heads meeting.

Our older pupils are breathing a small sigh of relief as their mock examinations are drawing to a close and they now prepare their final revision schedules for the ‘real thing’ after the Easter break. Also, many of our girls have been taking part in our interschool netball tournament held here at KCM. At the time of writing, I don’t know the outcome, but I am sure our teams will have been brilliant!

A few things this week….

 

SPANISH TRANSLATION OF INSPECTION REPORT

I am pleased to say we now have an officially translated version of our inspection report available on our website. You can download it here.

As you know, our school undertook what was to be an extremely successful inspection towards the end of October. The report has been available on our website (and at the DfE website in UK) since December, but only in English. Now, we hope many more of you will be able to enjoy our success with us.

 

STAFFING

I am very happy to announce that Miss Williams has been appointed to take over Mrs Mirfield’s role as SENCo in our Secondary department. You will, of course, know Miss Williams in her role as Head of Arts (which she will continue to do). Miss Williams has a considerable amount of SEN and leadership experience, particularly in special schools in the UK and is very much looking forward to her new role within the school.

 

INTERHOUSE ROAD RACE

A reminder that this year’s charity for the Interhouse Road Race will be AFACMUR. They are a charity based in Murcia that was set up by parents and it is there to support families whose children have been diagnosed with cancer. They offer many types of support, psychological, social and financial support and they are based out of the Hospital Virgen de la Arrixaca. This charity was chosen as it is local and a children’s charity. Please remember that if you wish to donate, please do place some money in the box in reception next week. There is also a donation link on the website.

But of course, the best way will be to help your child gain as much sponsorship as possible!

 

OPEN MORNING IN EARLY YEARS

A reminder from our Admissions department that if you have any friends, relatives or acquaintances with children aged 2-5 who may be interested in our school, please spread the word about the Open Morning in Early Years that we will be holding on Friday 29th March from 09.30 to 12.30. Thank you for your support.

 

SCHOOL TUCK SHOP

After the success of the Tuck Shop, we will be continuing to run it every Tuesday. Therefore, Tuck Shop will return on Tuesday 26th March.
