Dear parents and carers
I hope that you don’t mind me writing to you but I felt compelled to ensure that our parents and students are confident that we are acting to ensure that there is no further reputational damage to our fantastic school which is such an integral part of our community.
I am sure that many of you will have seen the Look North report on Friday evening and were saddened by the representation of your child’s school. My colleagues and I were devastated by the way that the school was presented in such a public forum, and that our statement was not fully included in the report.
Millthorpe School is really a special place to work and for our students to thrive and grow. I’m so grateful to the many parents, of children with and without SEND, who have written to me over the weekend to show your solidarity and support for the wonderful school, teachers and students that we have here; this is the truth.
