On behalf of the Governing Body, I would like to welcome you to Windhill Primary School.
It has been my privilege to be on the Governing Body at Windhill for several years ever since my own children were at the school. They are all grown up now but together we share many, many very fond memories of their years at Windhill and are very, very proud of the education they received here.
Here at Windhill Primary School, we are very excited about our New School Year.
We are grateful to the parents and carers of our pupils, who support us in so many ways. Every day, Mrs Howard, our Head Teacher, our Teaching Team and Office staff are busy welcoming all of our children and families into exciting and vibrant classrooms. Our cleaners and site supervisor are working hard to make our school lovely and clean. Our cooks are cooking delicious and nutritious meals. Our midday supervisors keep our children safe and happy at lunchtimes. Our Governors work with Mrs Howard to make important decisions that will support our school to continue its journey from being an Ofsted graded “Good” school to becoming “Outstanding.”
Most importantly, every day we celebrate the children who come into our care; children who are kind, caring, friendly, hard-working and a credit to their families, carers and to Windhill Primary. They make us proud every day.
Fifty years ago, on 20th July 1969, Neil Armstrong, a United States astronaut, became the first man to set foot upon the moon. So many people had worked very hard in the background to launch the three astronauts, Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, Michael Collins, into space, to the moon and back again safely.
The words that Neil spoke as he took his first step are well known: “That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.”
As we at Windhill Primary School begin our journey into this new Academic Year, some of our steps might be small ones, some of them might be giant leaps. However, we will take none of these steps by ourselves. We are grateful for all of the people who are supporting our pupils in lots of different ways, every day.
You are always very welcome to come and meet the team at Windhill. We would love to meet you.
Chair of Governors
