Dear Parents and Carers,
It has been a wonderful week in school, we have made it as festive as possible. Despite how hard and stressful it is to organise all the Christmas shows, we have really missed them this year. We do however believe we have given the children the very best memories we can in the current situation and hope they have had a lovely final week in school. For children learning at home, we really hope you have had some festive fun with the activities set.
The end of this week also marks my final week as Headteacher at Biggin Hill Primary School before I hand over the reins to Mrs Freeman as Acting Headteacher, from January. I know that Mrs Freeman will do an outstanding job at leading the school, continuing to maintain and grow our excellent standards and driving the school forward.
Mrs Lawrence will become our Acting Deputy Headteacher whilst maintaining her Inclusion and SENCO responsibilities. Mrs Lawrence will also be supporting Mrs Freeman in the management of the school.
Mrs Freeman and Mrs Lawrence are both outstanding leaders and have a wealth of experience and knowledge about children and how they learn. Their support during my headship has been invaluable.
I want to thank all of our wonderful children, families and our entire school community here at Biggin Hill Primary for being so supportive during my time as Headteacher; it really has been such a fantastic experience and the best 6 years of my career! I have felt a connection with the whole school community since I arrived. Although I am excited by my new challenge, I am also deeply sad to be leaving a place I loved
working at for 6 years.
This year has been challenging for everyone. The challenges of running a school through a pandemic have been immense. The staff you have working at Biggin Hill Primary School are amazing, and I can honestly say have done everything in their power to make the school as safe as possible for your children. The number of emails I receive on a weekly basis thanking staff for what they do just proves this point.
On behalf of everyone at Biggin Hill Primary School, I would like to thank you for your kind gifts and cards and I wish you a very safe and happy Christmas and the most wonderful New Year!
