The beginning of the new school year can be a tricky time, particularly for children starting at a new school. And so too for new Heads and teachers!

Ali and I received a letter a couple of days ago from one of the girls at Knighton which went something like this:


“Dear Mr and Mrs Gainher,
I hope you’re looking forward to your first day. I hope you’re not too nervous like I was on my first day. There is no need to worry, I made lots of new friends on my first day and I think you will too.
Love Daisy”


I read the letter out this morning in our first Knighton assembly to remind us all of what’s important in life: kindness, thoughtfulness, thinking of others and empathy.

Thank you to Daisy, what a star.
