Head of School update

It’s Christmas!…….

It is my pleasure to write this final update for 2023.  

This year we have had a number of changes already in new staff, wishing others well as they enjoy new parenthood and welcoming back other returning staff.  Our children, as always, have set a great example, working hard at their learning and showing us just how amazing they all are.   This year, as always, we have finished off with the nativity at the infant school. For our Year 2 children, it’s the first performance they managed to deliver to an audience following the pandemic and last year’s wave of illness.  For our Reception children this is their first experience.  As always, their hard work and perseverance has paid off with a superb show!  Thank you to everyone who managed to attend and see them in action. 

In the junior school, we have seen how hard the children have worked on their subjects and they have already represented us on a number of occasions at sporting fixtures.  We continue to see good progress in Year 6 as they all focus on SATS for next year and the journey towards High School which is only a few months away.  In the rest of the junior school, the children have been launching themselves into their reading and our Mundesley Merit shop is being topped up regularly as the children are able to “cash” their merit points.  Each daily read with your child really does make a huge difference to their overall performance at school.  

Finally, thank you to all of our lovely staff who work together to make everything run smoothly for our children, and to our parents and carers without whose support so many things just would not be in place.  With your support you enrich the learning that your children have access to and support their achievements both in and outside of school.  With all the challenges that we know each and every one of you in your families have and continue to face, we remain as always here to support however we can.  

All that remains is to wish you, your families and loved ones wherever they may be a safe and healthy Christmas, and all our good wishes for 2024.  From all of the staff here at MIJS. 

Please note that school will be closed from Thursday 21 December 2023 and will reopen on THURSDAY 04 JANUARY 2024
