Welcome back to all our children, staff, parents and members of the Copthorne family. We hope that you have had a wonderful summer break and are ready for a great term ahead. A special welcome goes to all of our children who are attending Copthorne for the fist time, either in Reception, Nursery or Saplings. I am sure that you will enjoy all of your learning at Copthorne throughout your time with us. We would also like to welcome our new staff: Miss Holmes (Class Teacher in Hazel); Miss Owen (Class Teacher in 3 Larch); Mrs Swain (Class Teacher in 1 Oak); Miss Johnson (Teaching Assistant in 5 Willow) and all of our Schools Direct teaching trainees and apprentices. I know that each of you will be a great asset to the Copthorne community.
