My name is Mandy McDowall. I have been working in Surrey schools for the past 24 years. I am a mother of two boys who are aged 16 and 19 and I am passionate about ensuring that all children are given the very best education so that they have the tools to achieve greatness. I am very excited about starting as the Headteacher of Broadmere and New Monument Schools and meeting the families within our school community.
We are so delighted to have the children back in school. We are working hard to ensure that the school is as safe as possible for all our pupils and staff.
As always, the well-being of your child will be central to all our thinking as we take the next steps forward through this pandemic. Our plans will be adjusted daily where necessary to make improvements and meet the needs of the pupils and staff.
We thank you in advance for your support, patience and understanding as we embark on the next stage of this journey. If you have any further questions, please contact the school office.
This week is Children’s Mental Health Week, and this year’s theme is Express Yourself.
Expressing yourself is about finding ways to share feelings, thoughts, or ideas, through creativity. This could be through art, music, writing and poetry, dance and drama, photography and film, and doing activities that make you feel good.
It’s important to remember that being able to express yourself is not about being the best at something or putting on a performance for others. It is about finding a way to show who you are, and how you see the world, that can help you feel good about yourself.
For Children's Mental Health Week 2021 we will be encouraging children (and adults) to explore the different ways we can express ourselves, and the creative ways that we can share our feelings, our thoughts and our ideas.
