Dear Parents and Carers,
It was lovely to see our school community in red, white and blue on Monday in recognition of our fantastic participation in the Euro 2020 tournament. I hope the ‘soft
drop’ enabled families to enjoy the match!
In response to some of the racist abuse that members of the England Team experienced after the Euro 2020 result, we have taken the opportunity to talk to the children about racism, about celebrating who we are and being proud of our differences. We have made it clear that this kind of abhorrent, racist behaviour
has no place in our society or indeed in our school.
On Tuesday, childrens’ reports were sent home. We hope the new reporting format is helpful to families. Please do remember that there is an option to discuss your child’s report up to 21st July. if you would like to request a virtual meeting, please contact your child's class teacher. If there is anything you would like to discuss with Mrs Lawrence or myself, please do drop us an email.
Our ‘Tea and Tots’ has now finished for this term. My thanks to our families for supporting our relaunch and to Mrs Sargeant and Mrs Helps for running this for our school. In September, ‘Tea and Tots’ will be on a Tuesday. Our first session will be on Tuesday 7th September, 1-30-3.00pm.
Last week, we also celebrated the work of the NHS with our Art Day. We have seen some beautiful work from across the school - I hope you enjoy our article on page 2.
This evening, the Year 6 Leavers’ Committee which is made up of year 6 parents and carers are hosting the Year 6 Prom for our amazing children who are about to move on to pastures new! I must say a huge ‘thank you’ to the Year 6 Leavers’ Committee for providing a wonderful ‘Fun Day’ last week and also all the preparations for this very special prom. We will provide a full article on our year 6 celebrations in our final newsletter next week.
On Monday, we all look forward to ‘All Change Day’ and our picnic on the school field - we really do hope this is a positive, fun and relaxed day for the children to enjoy some time with their new teacher and enjoy a social lunch on the field. Please do ensure that children have applied sun cream prior to coming to school, have a hat and water bottle.
We look forward to announcing the winners of our ‘Perfect Parking’ road safety poster
competition next week.
Finally, Connie S, a former year 6 pupil, is climbing Mount Snowdon to help raise money for Young Minds, a charity that supports young people’s mental health and wellbeing. Connie’s inspiring story and JustGiving page can be found at:
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
My very best wishes,
Headteacher and Designated Safeguarding Lead
