Staff keen to say thank you for COVID-19 Lockdown to July 2020 and as whole school returns Sept 2020
I wanted to take this opportunity to express my huge thanks and gratitude for how you have supported me in so many ways this year. In particular, I can’t thank you enough for your understanding, kindness and wise words of advice over the last five months. The impact that these unprecedented times have had on me personally has been so much greater then I would have ever imagined, but the way that you have helped me and my family is something I will always be so grateful for. In such uncertain times, one thing I have never doubted is your commitment to keeping each and every one of us safe during this storm, and I know that you will see us all safely through it until we find our rainbow. Thank you I am so proud to be part of the Howe Dell family.
I just wanted to thank you for this year, I have had the most amazing year and I am going to miss Howe Dell greatly. I am so grateful for you taking me on this year as this year has given me the confidence to go into my PGCE year. I hope you have a fantastic summer.
Thank you so much for being an amazing Head. I have loved every second of my time at Howe Dell and will miss you all terribly.
Thank you so much for always allowing the Staff to put their families first.
I am so grateful for all your support and care towards me. I honestly cannot put into words how lucky I am to work as part of the Howe Dell family. I cannot say thank you enough!
Thank you very much for all your support over the last year it has been great working with you.
Yay! Nearing the end of my NQT year and the end of a crazy summer term for us all. Just to say the biggest thank you for all the support you have shown and for being the friendliest, most caring team. For all the efforts since the 1st June, making it the safest and happiest environment possible. I have had a great first year teaching. Take care and have a lovely summer, you all deserve it… Lockdown Heroes!
Please see on site our training logs with impact which cannot be listed here under GDPR as information specific to each member of staff.
It includes the following:
The Facilities Duo – Colin & Sharon
This duo have had lots of projects to deal with over the past year – including the perennial battle with the wind turbine! (Which is now working!), the installation of the automatic car park gates and kestrels! Add to that Themed Weeks and Wonder Days for Maths, Shakespeare, Pet Day, Space & Time Travel week, Bird Art Attack and Our Living World, along with the regular annual Howe Dell events such as Sports Day, Remembrance Day etc..
Mel is a kind, caring person who will go out of her way for anyone. She is an active member on the PSA whether cooking amazing food for an event, helping to set up or henna painting. She always has a smile on her face when greeting parents and staff, and is an active and willing governor, and is very supportive to her R.E subject leader in all areas, wanting to do the best she can for the school and children.
Mrs Massey is a one in a million head teacher. She gives the children in her care opportunities that they would not receive at other schools, through all of the Wonder Day, Wonder Weeks and Theatre trip experiences, as well as other projects run in the school. There are very few head teachers who are accessible to parents both at the start and at the end of the school day and who know the names of so many children. She is inspirational, passionate, dedicated and exceptional. Howe Dell is extremely lucky to have her!
Julia is always bright, cheerful and approachable. She has many roles linked to Howe Dell but recently has been involved in some important Governor meetings. Julia has made staff feel appreciated and valued and this has been gratefully received during some challenging times. To ensure staff well-being she even brings staff packed lunches! She is also an active part of the community attending and supporting local events, even bringing along her ever expanding group of children who she child minds.
Year 1 wanted to thank Mrs Walkerdine for reading with Year 1 children over the past 2 years. She has helped the children to progress in their reading and has helped them to grow in confidence. They respond well to her and look forward to her coming into read with them.
