A Message from Mrs Amos
Well the new academic year certainly feels like it’s in full swing now. As I walk around the school and pop into the different classrooms, I’m encouraged to see so many children getting fully immersed in school life and taking up new opportunities as they arise. With such a variety of roles to play in the school, there really is something for everyone: from buddying to peer mediating; being a ‘librarian’ to representing a year group on the School Council or acting as a Sports Rep. Taking on a role involves taking on responsibility; being reliable; learning new skills in order to best support other children and making a greater impact on the school for the benefit of everyone. These are fantastic learning and character building opportunities.
In addition to the jobs children are adopting, there are the wealth of extra-curricular activities and the learning moments provided through our exciting new curriculum. These are stimulating our children’s brains, exercising their bodies and lifting their spirits. It is a privilege to see such a level of engagement in our school.
As the term progresses I will continue to encourage all children to embrace the attitude of ‘you never know what you can do until you try it’. Parents please join me too in challenging your children to make the most of this academic year; to stretch themselves and foster along the way key attributes of resilience, confidence and tolerance. I am sure that as a result, every child at NCPA will be able to look back on this year with personal pride at what they have achieved and how their achievement has contributed to the atmosphere of learning and fun that characterises NCPA.
