10th September 2018 | Victoria Kidds Welcome back to our new school year. There have been a few changes over the holidays. Firstly, the admin offices have moved. All access for parents and visitors will now be from the Gilstead Road entrance. When entering this way, visitors are greeted with a modern front desk and waiting area which has been decorated with a combination of art produced by the children, and some historical pictures and documents from the school archive. Secondly, we have had some upgrades in the playground. We have decorated the shelter and the EYFS fence as well as adding some planters across the space. We have also created a blackboard on the wall and the roof of the play house. Children have already enjoyed decorating these! Playtimes have had an upgrade too with more equipment and now the enrichment room offers a calm indoor play space of board games, craft, and fun activities to help develop social skills. We also welcome two new members of staff to the Langford team. Ms Tuttle is our new Nursery teacher and Ms Castro will be teaching Reception. They have already put their mark on the Early Years classrooms and the children have made an excellent start with them both. We are all looking forward to the year ahead and we will be blogging about our journey as we continue to make Langford a hub of excellence.
