Welcome Back

Nobody could have foreseen this time last year what was on the horizon and it was so lovely to see the children returning to school this week after what had been, for so many of them, five months out of school (aside from a 40 minute visit towards the end of last term).  Given this significant time away, the children have settled in really well and adapted to the new ways of working.

The school looks very different now to how it did at the end of last term - with effectively a building site right in the centre of our school.  Mr Dudley couldn’t wait to remove a specific brick from the annex just prior to it’s demolition. We learnt, last year, from a visitor - who happened to be an ex-pupil from the school - that a brick with the initials EAW etched into it contained stamps and coins.  EAW were the initials of the head at the time that  the original annex building was built.  Mrs Wallace was her name and though the items themselves are not of any great value - it was exciting to see an image of Concorde and the QE2 on stamps and an old 5p and 10p coin (from 1969) appearing as the cement was carefully scraped off the brick.

I will share more photos of the building works in future issues of the Tadworth Times but thought this was a nice story to share in relation to our school’s History.

My thanks to Mrs Wilson (Bursar) who came into school frequently during the summer break to help ensure that the works were on track and that the school would be ready to open in time. My thanks too to our fantastic staff team for all they have done in preparation for term beginning.

It continues to be a challenging time but I am confident that by continuing to work together as a community, supporting one another in anyway that we can, we will continue to move forwards positively which leads nicely into this month’s value - ‘Community’.                                                                                                                                             JK
