Friday 16th July

Message from Miss Rutledge

I’d like to express my huge thanks to Staff, Governors, Parents, Carers and our amazing Pupils for the efforts, achievements and enthusiasm throughout an exceptionally challenging year. I’m so proud of the resilience, resourcefulness, and perseverance displayed.

I recognised our children, staff and community have coped with disruption and adapted to new systems admirably, moving between home learning and face to face, experiencing changes to the normal school day, adapting to staggered starting and finishing times along with staggered playtimes and lunchtimes. They’ve had to cope with threat of COVID and adhere to new rules and procedures. I’m incredibly proud of the way in which the Mount Pleasant Team have worked in collaboration to problem solve and to do the best for our pupils.

As we prepare to welcome our new Nursery and Reception parents to the Mount Pleasant family, it is also time to say good luck and farewell to our Year 6 pupils. I look forward to following their progress as they take the next step in their educational journey as they transition to High School.

I’d like to wish you all a happy summer break and look forward to seeing you on September 6th 2021.

Have a wonderful summer break!

Miss Rutledge
