WE WORK VERY HARD, I SORT OF A HAVE CHIP ON MY SHOULDER, I WANT OUR CHILDREN TO BE SEEN WITH THE BEST IN THE WORLD, WHY SHOULD THEY NOT BE. I WANT OUR CHILDREN TO HAVE, NOT ONLY A PRIDE IN THEIR SCHOOL BUT IN THEIR COMMUNITY AND THAT COMES FROM PRIDE IN YOURSELF, THAT PRIDE WILL ALLOW THEM TO MOVE FORWARD WITH A CONFIDENCE ON WHATEVER PATH THEY FIND THEMSELVES ON.
WE ARE NOT ABOUT GATHERING UP ALL OF THESE AWARDS AND RECOGNITIONS, THESE ARE ABOUT RECOGNISING OUR CHILDREN, OUR PARENTS AND OUR STAFF AND IF THAT IS SEEN TO BE THE SIN OF PRIDE THEN I’M GUILTY. I AM PROUD OF WHERE I AM FROM, WHERE I NOW WORK AND MOST IMPORTANTLY OF OUR CHILDREN. WE ARE NOT ABOUT AWARDS WE ARE ABOUT FAMILY, ABOUT CREATING AS CARING AND AS LOVING AN ENVIRONMENT AS WE CAN. I WANT OUR YR. 7 CHILDREN TO WALK UP THAT LANE ON THEIR LAST DAY HAVING DONE THEIR BEST AND ACHIEVED SOME SUCCESS IN ACADEMICS, MUSIC, ART, SPORTS, DRAMA WHATEVER BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY I WANT THEM TO WALK UP IT WITH A SMILE ON THEIR FACE AS THEY REMEMBER THEIR TIME IN OUR SCHOOL AND A VERY, SMALL TEAR IN THEIR EYE.
THE DEFINITION IN THE DICTIONARY STATES, BUT WE STRIVE TO MAKE THOSE WORDS COME ALIVE. OUR VISION STATEMENT FOR OUR SCHOOL USES THE NAME OLIVER TO SHOW WHAT WE TRY TO BE; O FOR OPENNESS, L FOR LOVE, I FOR INTEGRITY, V THAT WE HAVE VISION, E FOR ENTHUSIASM AND R IS FOR RESPECT. WE WANT OUR CHILDREN TO RESPECT EACH OTHER AS THEY GROW WITH EACH OTHER, TO RESPECT YOU AS THEY GROW AND TO RESPECT THEMSELVES.
WE ARE DELIGHTED THAT WHAT WE HOPE FOR OUR CHILDREN IS RECOGNISED AS HAPPENING BY PEOPLE LIKE THE INSPECTORATE.
I HAVE INCLUDED THIS QUOTE FROM THEIR REPORT AS IT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT FOR ME AS THE PRINCIPAL OF OUR SCHOOL AND I THINK ALSO AS A PARENT.
DUE TO THE FACT OUR 2015 INSPECTION WAS SO HIGHLY RATED WE HAD ANOTHER VISIT IN 2018 JUST TO MAKE SURE THAT ALL WAS AS GOOD AS IT WAS IN 2015.
IT IS A BIG WORLD OUT THERE AND WE WANT OUR CHILDREN AS I SAID AT THE START OF THE TALK TO TAKE THEIR PLACE IN IT WITH CONFIDENCE. WE THINK THESE EXAMPLES SHOW THAT WE ARE REALLY TRYING TO ENSURE THAT THIS IS THE CASE.
NOW FOR THE TECHNICAL BIT. LAST YEAR THE EA HAVE CHANGED HOW YOU APPLY FOR A PRIMARY SCHOOL PLACE. IT NEEDS TO BE DONE ONLINE. WE WILL BE HERE ON JANUARY 8TH TO ASSIST ANY PARENTS WHO MAY NEED A BIT OF A HAND WITH THE ONLINE PROCESS. THE PARENT PROTAL OPENS FOR ADMISSIONS ON JANUARY 7TH. IF IT IS YOUR INTENTION TO SEND YOUR CHILD TO OUR SCHOOL PLEASE FILL IN A FORM THAT WE WILL GIVE YOU TODAY, IT GIVES US A HEADS UP AS TO HOW MANY CHILDREN WE HOPE TO SEE NEXT SEPTEMBER.
