Dear Parents

January is a month of new beginnings, a blank page on which we have the opportunity to write new stories. As we continue with the many and varied activities and endeavours here at Heath Mount, it is important to remember that not everything we ‘write’ on the 365 pages of 2018 will be perfect – and equally important to know that this is ok! We hope that during the course of this year, our children will try new things, dare to challenge themselves and take the risk of not succeeding first time round.

In this year to come, I hope you make mistakes. If you are making mistakes, then you are trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world.’ Anon

Our pupils need to know that their failures matter as much as their successes and that the highest value is in greatness of character, rather than greatness of achievement. Our January message to our pupils is this: ‘let your failures as well as your successes define you, as in doing so, you shape perseverance, resilience, risk-taking and self-belief as qualities of your character. These are the building blocks of your future success.’

Heath Mount abounds with opportunities for pupils to try new things and push themselves onwards and upwards. We look forward to the many exciting moments of personal ‘greatness’ that our children will achieve over the coming year!
