Dear Parents and Carers,
I hope this letter finds you in good health and high spirits as we begin the new school year at St. George’s CE Primary School. It is with great enthusiasm and joy that I extend my warmest welcome to all of you. As you were informed at the end of the school year, St George’s has formalised a partnership with two other local church schools, St. Saviour’s in Herne Hill and St. Jude’s in Herne Hill. As such, Mr. Rojas is now the Head of the Partnership and I have taken on the role of Head of School. I am very excited by the role and look forward to continuing to build on past successes.
The staff and I are very excited to welcome all of our children from Years 1 to 6 back today. Reception children will begin their settling in from 11th September. Please find below some key messages, reminders and the dates when you can meet the teachers. I have delayed these by a week so that more time is available for you to organise to be there.
Remember that you have a voice in our school community, and we value your thoughts and ideas. Our doors are always open, and we are eager to hear from you. Thank you for entrusting us with the education and well-being of your children. Together, we will continue to foster an environment where every child can thrive.
