From the Office
Earlier this week the Principals made an exciting announcement about important developments at Claires Court.

The full letter to parents can be found here<http://www.clairescourt.com/attachments/download.asp?file=1779&type=pdf>. However in summary:

It is the School’s long-term vision to have a new, single campus alongside our Junior Boys site at Ridgeway. In recent weeks our aspiration has moved closer to reality and as such we are seeking to submit plans shortly. We will of course keep you well informed of the timeline once we have firmer detail.

To facilitate this development there will be a change of Senior Leadership at Claires Court.  Justin Spanswick is stepping down as Head of Junior Boys at the end of this academic year to take on a corporate role to support the Academic Principal.   His role, working across all sites alongside the current headteachers, will encompass strategic and compliance matters, including pupil recruitment and scholarships, new campus implications and parental engagement, overview of operational management and designated safeguarding lead.

We are now actively seeking to appoint a new Head to take on the leadership and management of Junior Boys, with effect from September 2018.  The new Head will be fully supported by Justin to   facilitate a smooth transition into post and to ensure our School values, ethos and learning philosophy continue to be at the forefront of his successor’s vision for the pupils, parents and staff of Junior Boys.

Rabbit winners this week are Theo Ainsley in Year 3 and Thomas Rendall in Reception. Both Thomas and Theo have been absolute stars this week, helping out their teachers and especially helping their friends when tasks and challenges become too difficult. These are two boys who always follow their Golden Rules, and I am very proud of their efforts this week.

As Winter Approaches
As the weather gets colder, may we take this chance to remind our parents of the School’s Emergency Closure Guidance in case we need to close the School due to adverse weather conditions.
