Dear Parents

With so much going on in the world outside of the school walls, Brexit and Coronavirus to name just a few; it is all too easy to feel less than positive. Well this is true until you realise we are now through the worst of winter (we hope!) and the evenings are now getting lighter from 5pm. With this renewed positivity we start to see the green shoots appear on the trees and from the spring bulbs in the ground. The children at Cumnor are those green shoots for our future, seeing their positivity, endeavour and belief gives me great confidence that all will be well with the world if this generation are given the responsibility to mend some of the issues our generation have caused for our planet. Stay hopeful, be positive and trust in our children, winter is nearly over and the world has a bright future.

My assembly this week discussed the very pertinent topic of ‘Respect’, and how we have to give it to receive it. It is something I expect from all of our Cumnor family, from pupils to staff, staff to pupils, staff to parents and parents to staff, all stakeholders associated with our school. We all have great responsibility to set excellent examples to those that look up to us.

I have been very pleased to see the many positive comments and development points received from our parent survey. I can see improvements in almost every area that we have surveyed, but still areas that require further development. In the coming weeks I shall be sharing a summary of our strengths and areas that we shall be continuing to focus on as a school. If you have not taken the opportunity to record your valuable opinion, please do so. Every parent should have received a link, if you haven’t please contact the office and we shall ensure you get one.

Have a great weekend.
