Miss Kendall 

Firstly, I would like to introduce myself.  My name is Miss Kendall and I have been teaching at Montreal Church of England School for the past 5 years. I love teaching and making learning fun and I hope that we can make lots of great memories together. This year, we will have lots of opportunities to get creative; get messy and enjoy our outdoor area.  When I am at home, I enjoy running, walking and spending time with my family. 

I can’t wait to meet you all. 
Take care, 

Miss Kendall. 


I have set up all the children that I had forms for on Tapestry.  You should have received an activation email.  If your child already has siblings in the school you can continue to use your current log in details.  


Tapestry is a great way to show you, as parents all the exciting learning the children have been getting involved in.  It is also a great way of keeping in touch.  I would also love to see photos of what the children get up to at home and how they like to spend their free time.  Please upload pictures and comment anytime you want.  


If you have not received an email or would like help logging on please let me know.

P.E Days and Forest School 

To support our experiential learning, every Wednesday morning Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children will have a Forest School Morning. They are to come to school every Wednesday wearing old clothing appropriate for the weather. They are to bring their full school uniform (including shoes) to get changed into at dinner time and a plastic bag which the children will put their muddy clothes into. Forest school will count as one of the children's PE sessions.

The children in Miss Kendall's class will have their other PE session on Tuesdays and will need to bring in their full school PE kit.

The children in Miss Freestone's class will have their other PE session on Fridays and will need to bring in their full school PE kit.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to come and chat to us. Have a lovely weekend!

Forest School 

Please send the children in old, warm clothes that will be ok to get muddy.  Children should wear wellies and waterproofs if possible.  However, we do have some waterproofs and wellies in the forest school.  


The children will then get changed into their school uniforms at dinner time.  It is advisable that they bring a plastic carrier bag to put all their forest school clothing into.  



Thursday 2nd September 



I hope you have all had a wonderful summer and are looking forward to starting your new adventure.

I can’t wait to meet you all properly. 😀

A few things to mention for parents: 

  • Doors will open at 8:50am and they will be adults on site that can guide you in the correct direction. 
  • We ask that all parents leave their children at the door before entering the cloakroom. This is for two reasons. Firstly, the cloakroom is quite small and we still need to be mindful of coronavirus. Secondly, last year we found the children settled much better this way.
  • All children will be in school for the full day. This has worked well for the past few years. 


I am sure many of you are getting anxious about your child’s next step. Please do not hesitate to contact me at if you have any questions, worries or concerns. 

Miss Kendall. 😄
