Monkton Park Newsletter Friday 14th June 2019

Well done to Badgers class this week who have been on their residential trip to Hooke Court in South Wales. They represented Monkton Park brilliantly and had a fantastic time by the beach. Click here to see some of the activities they got up to. Thank you to Mrs Hughes, Mrs Douglas and Mrs Quarrell for taking them away.

Congratulations as well to Mrs Hughes who has been successfully appointed as a phase leader at Gorse Hill Primary School in Swindon. Mrs Hughes will be hugely missed but we wish her the best of luck in her new role. In September we are delighted that Andrew Prosser (currently teaching at Ivy Lane) and Annabel Collyer will be joining us as teachers in Y5/6. Andrew will also be our new KS2 Leader.


This morning all year 4s from Owls, Foxes and Pine Martens took part in Wiltshire Councils' 'Scoot-ability' programme, learning how to scoot safely, what to wear and how to look after their scooters. The children behaved impeccably and represented the school brilliantly. Well done year 4
