Welcome letter to parents
It gives me great pleasure introducing myself as the new Head Teacher of Appleton Wiske Community Primary School. The school is at the heart of the village; there is a real family atmosphere here with a caring and inclusive ethos. We focus on the needs of each individual child and as a team of professionals work together to meet those needs in an exciting and well-resourced learning environment.
During the Autumn Term, I spent a good deal of time getting to know the families, pupils, staff, governors and members of the community in order to develop positive relationships across the school. It is essential that we build strong partnerships so that we may work together to meet the social, emotional, academic and personal needs of every child in our care. We aim to provide the best possible education for your children and hope you will share our high expectations, particularly in behaviour and achievement.
Our close collaboration with a range of neighbouring settings and skilled professionals ensures seamless care with adults who have a wealth of knowledge and understanding of children and their development and learning. This reflects our school vision of TEAM: ‘Together Everyone Achieves More’.
If you have any queries or would like to discuss any issues, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Thank you for your commitment and support.
Mr Neil Clark
