School Newsletter - September 2017

Welcome to the new school year! I am excited and honoured to undertake the role of Acting Head of School at Sunny Bank Primary. As many of you may know, I have been at Sunny Bank School since January 2017 and have received a warm welcome from pupils, parents and staff alike.

The year ahead will bring many wonderful learning opportunities for your children, the school is looking fresh, the teachers are full of energy and we are all ready to go on a journey of rapid improvement.

We welcome several excellent new members of staff to Sunny Bank, Mr Christison, School Business/Office Manager, Mr Riggs, Caretaker and finally Ms Harper. Ms Harper is the extremely experienced teacher of Baird Class.

Over the past two days, we have all been busy in school implementing a new behaviour and rewards initiative. The initiative includes parent updates of their children's behaviour on a daily basis via a range of interactive platforms and devices- iPad, iPhone and Android Apps.

Keep an eye out for further opportunities for parents/carers coming up in the next few weeks- we have vacancies for parent governors. Could you contribute to the schools continuous drive for improvement? Full training given if successful.

My office is now on the Sunny Bank Site, Mrs Gee now has an office on the Church Road site should you wish to book a meeting with either of us.
