Welcome Letter to Parents

Dear Parents
I am delighted to be writing to you as Headteacher of St Mary’s Hare Park Primary School. It is an absolute privilege to have been appointed by the school Trustees and entrusted with the job of leading such an outstanding school.
I am committed to the continued success of St Mary’s and will ensure all students receive the outstanding education they deserve. I fully intend to build upon the success the school has already achieved under the superb leadership of Mrs K.
I am dedicated to building opportunities for students to achieve the highest academic standards, ensuring that they are known well as individuals and that their unique personality, talents and interests are nurtured and developed to the full. 
I strongly believe in providing the children with exciting, creative and meaningful learning experiences, which build their enthusiasm for learning and help them to grow and develop positively in a variety of ways. 
We are lucky to have a highly-skilled, committed team who strive for the upmost success for our children and who have a caring and supportive ethos at their core. St Mary’s is undoubtedly a unique school and I feel privileged to be leading us forward.
I think it is crucial to involve the children and their families as partners in their education. I am also keen on building a whole school community which thrives on mutual respect and values positive relationships. I know how vital working in partnership with parents really is in order for children to find school a positive and rewarding experience. As key educators in your children’s lives, I feel that it is important that you have a voice and that as a school we are approachable and allocate time to listen to your concerns, worries or thoughts about the school. 
I was hoping to be able to meet many of you in the coming weeks for an informal coffee morning. Sadly, given the restrictions currently in place this will not be possible for the time being. However, I do encourage you to contact me via the school office and will endeavour to get back to you with any questions or for an informal chat. No doubt our paths will cross in the not so distant future.
These will undoubtedly be challenging times for us all as a community and a school. If we maintain a sense of unity and togetherness with the best interests of the children of St Marys as our common goal, I am confident that we will emerge from this crisis the stronger.
I send to you all and your families my warmest regards.
Ludovic Bernard
Head of St Marys Hare Park Primary School & Nursery
