To the Parents and Carers of Vranch House Pupils


Dear Parents and Carers,

As the new Head of Education at Vranch House I have been busy getting to know the amazing staff, pupils and as many parents as possible; if we ha ve not met yet then please do come and find me!  I will continue to make myself visible at morning drop-off times, 09:00 to 09:15, every Monday, Wednesday and Friday and my door is always open if you would like to come and talk with me at any time.

This term sees the welcome addition of other new staff including Zoe Letten who is covering Michelle Tomlinson's maternity leave in Class 2 and two new Mealtime Assistants: Nicola Roy and Kay Dennis and relief Mealtime Assistant, Jo Ledger.  It has been an absolute pleasure to join Vranch House this September and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the staff and children for making me feel so welcome!

The new state-of-the-art Hydrotherapy Pool is tantalizingly close to being completed and we hope to hold an official opening ceremony on Wednesday 19th October, to which all Parents and Carers of Vranch House pupils will be warmly invited.  We will confirm this date as soon as possible.

Other dates for your diaries are:

  • Monday 3rd October, 13:30 - the School Photographer will be in.
  • Tuesday 4th October for Parents Coffee Morning here at Vranch House. I will be available for an informal chat and am always happy to hear your views on how we are doing in meeting your children's needs and promoting their learning.

I look forward to meeting you soon.

Yours Faithfully,

Ian Norton

Head of Education
