Eaton House Manor Preparatory Autumn Term 2016 Welcome letter

Thursday, September 8th, 2016

Dear Parents

A very warm welcome back to Eaton House after the summer holidays, I do hope the boys have enjoyed themselves and are refreshed and ready for the term ahead! We welcome 50 new boys into Year 4 this term, many from our Pre-Prep, and I look forward to getting to know them all in due course. I will be teaching Reasoning to all boys in Year 5 and Year 6 and hosting breakfasts for boys in Years 7 and 8 on Friday mornings and will endeavour to get to know your sons as soon as possible.

Staff News

We welcome Mary Christie onto the staff team this term. Mary is our form teacher in 4MC and joins us from Mayfield Primary School in Cambridge where she was teaching Year 5. We also welcome Guy Tillson as our Gap Assistant for the term, fresh from Dulwich College, and one of our distinguished old boys.
Ms Mary Pedder (Year 6 English) is expecting her second baby later this Autumn and will be heading off on maternity leave in October. Recruitment for this position is currently underway and I shall let you know once we have appointed her replacement.

Parents’ Information Evening

There will be a Parents’ Information Evenings for all forms next week which will provide an excellent opportunity for you to get to know your son’s new form teacher and to get an overview of the year. The evenings will be split between the Theatre (where I will give a short talk to the year group) and the Form Rooms (where the form teachers will talk in more detail about the routines and expectations within that class). If you have sons in more than one year group I suggest you attend the higher year group session, as hopefully you will be familiar with the younger years. Please see the arrangements below:

Day: Year: Start Time: Location:
Tuesday 13th September Year 4 6.00pm Classrooms, then move to Theatre at 6.45pm. After my talk there will be an informal drinks party for all Year 4 parents and staff.
Tuesday 13th September Year 5 6.00pm Theatre, then to classrooms at approximately 6.30pm
Tuesday 14th September Year 6 6.00pm Theatre, then to classrooms at approximately 6.30pm
Tuesday 14th September Year 7 7.00pm Theatre, then to classrooms at approximately 7.30pm
Tuesday 14th September Year 8 7.00pm Theatre, then to classrooms at approximately 7.30pm

Additional Clubs

I am pleased to announce that there are three new clubs running this term. Please email the relevant teacher to secure a place for your son.

Early Morning Room and Homework Class

I would like to tighten up the arrangements for both these sessions to ensure we have the correct supervision in place. If you would like your son to attend either of these sessions please email Miss Kate Bullock prep.pa@eatonhouseschools.com and she will add your son’s name to the register. Early Morning Room will now take place in the Library with Mr Tillson and boys should make their way directly there at 8.00am.

Building Works

I am delighted to report that the final phase of our development work is on track and due to be finished in April. We are looking forward to our new science lab, DT lab, dining rooms and playground with great excitement. Do keep checking in on the Twitter feed to see photos and updates @BaxallEHS

Presentation

I am keen to ensure the boys present their work neatly. Please may I ask that from Year 5 boys use fountain pens (e.g. Lamy) with blue washable ink for their written work. I understand that some boys in Years 6, 7 and 8 may have used a friction pen last year but I hope that they will not find the transition to fountain pen too onerous. If you think your son may have a particular difficulty with this then please discuss it with your son’s form tutor.

Calendar

An electronic version of the calendar will be sent out today, and the card copies will follow in due course – apologies for the delay with this.

I am very much looking forward to meeting you all at the Information Evenings next week, but in the meantime if you have any queries please do not hesitate to get in touch. My email address is ssegrave@eatonhouseschools.com and I can be reached on the main school telephone number. Appointments may be made through Kate Bullock prep.pa@eatonhouseschools.com

With very best wishes

Mrs Sarah Segrave
Headmistress
