On behalf of the staff and governors I would like to extend a warm welcome to you and your child.
I was delighted to be appointed Head Teacher at Middlestone Moor Primary School from September 2021 after being the Deputy Head teacher for 11 years.
The warmth and friendly atmosphere of our school is very important and many of our visitors comment upon the happy and positive ethos. The staff are all 100% committed to the welfare and education of the children. Our school is full of happy, well-behaved, hard-working children who are a pleasure to teach.
Our aim is to create a happy, safe and stimulating place for children to learn and thrive so that their potential is fully developed. At Middlestone Moor Primary School we strive to make every child feel that they are valued and unique and that they are an important part of the school.
The children are taught that everyone has rights, alongside responsibilities and to make choices in their attitude and behaviour, recognising the consequence of these choices. We believe that frequent (merited) praise and encouragement is vital for all of us, especially children.
Close communication with parents is also necessary to ensure that everyone feels valued and informed, we really do value your contributions. In order for your child to get the best from their education we need to work together and positive partnerships with parents are high on my list of priorities. As far as my diary permits, I aim to operate an ‘open door’ policy.
I would urge you to take the opportunity to come and visit us. I am always happy to show you around, simply make an appointment at the school office.
I look forward to meeting you in the near future.
Miss G Richardson
