We have just finalised the last INSET day for this academic year. These are days when the school is closed to learners, to allow us to access training for our staff. This will be taken on Monday 7th June, which is the first day of next half term.
We will write to parents again nearer the date, but we wanted to give the community as much of an advance warning as possible.
* nb – This has changed today from Friday 28th May – apologies if anyone saw the earlier announcement *
At the end of term, we shared the news of the vandalism of the statue in Telegraph Hill park of the anti-slavery campaigner, Equiano. On the very last day of term, we also heard that the missing head of the statue had been relocated. We headed off into the Easter break feeling that we had at least the parts of puzzle, if not the solution.
Then, during the break, on the grapevine, we heard that the head and body were being reunited. This ‘reheading’ was attended by members of the local community and both the current Edmund Waller headteacher, Anne Rennie, and the headteacher at the time of the statue’s creation, Graham Jameson.
