Information for New Parents
Message from the Headteacher
I’m Cath Bainbridge and I am the Headteacher here at Maple Tree Primary School and we are going to take you on a virtual tour of the school to help you decide whether Maple Tree is the right school for your child, or children.
Choosing a new school is a little bit like choosing a new home. It’s really difficult to get a sense of what the school feels like from looking at the website or talking to parents outside the school gate.
We know you want to visit but that’s really tricky at the moment so we have created a video for you to give you a flavour of what Maple Tree is like.
When you are watching the video, ask yourself a series of questions:
- Do you think your child will be happy at our school?
- Do we offer what your child needs?
- Is it the right fit for your child?
Maple Tree is a values school and as such we promote key values such as respect, kindness, cooperation, trust and thankfulness throughout our school day. Our children show empathy and sympathy with each other and their thoughtfulness towards each other has been commented on by visitors to the school.
There will be a number of points raised on the video which will hopefully give you an idea of what it is like to be a child at our school, but if you have any questions, please do get in touch with someone in the school office who will be able to help you with your query.
Enjoy the video tour and we look forward to meeting you soon.
