I hope everyone had a good Easter break. It is hard to believe that it is the summer term with all the rain that has been falling but at least the farmers will be happy. The children are not because they enjoy playing on the field in the summer term so we are all hoping for a change in the weather.

We have had some Australian head teachers visiting us this week. They were guests of Cambridge University and have been visiting schools in the London and Hertfordshire area to take ideas back to Australia. Although they have visited many schools they seemed particularly impressed with Little Heath and took lots of pictures to share our practice with teachers in their own schools. They felt very at home when they walked into Year 3 and saw they were doing some aboriginal drawings (totally unplanned) and the children learnt something from their visit because the heads were able to explain some of the stories which were the origins for the drawings.

I am looking forward to seeing some of you next week at our meeting to keep you informed about our progress with the Ofsted action plan. This is not going to be a meeting where you have to sit and listen to teachers and governors talk to you but one where you will be actively involved in discussions about the key objectives of the plan and where you will be able to share your ideas with us about moving the school forward. The meeting is on Tuesday night at 7.30pm.
