Dear Parents and Carers,

I can’t believe that we have come to the end of another school year. I am sure that those of you with children transitioning to the next phase of their education might be feeling that time passes all too quickly!

It was a pleasure and a joy to see our pre school children “graduate” on Wednesday. It was such a lovely afternoon and we wish each and every one of them the best of luck with their first year of school - whether that be here or elsewhere! Thank you to parents and carers for coming to this event and to the amazing pre school team for all of the effort that they have put into the graduation celebrations and gifts!

It has been an emotional day - culminating in our Year 6 graduation ceremony. We are so sad to be saying goodbye to this wonderful group of children and we wish them every success at secondary school and beyond. Please do keep us up to date with your childrens’ successes as they move through their education and into their adult lives - we really love to hear about how everyone is getting on!

I was lucky enough to watch the final Y6 performance last night and it was fabulous! It was amazing to see children perform - so many of them overcoming their worries to do so! The singing was fabulous - well done Year 6 and the Year 6 teaching team for putting such a great show together!

As I say, emotions have been running high today not least because we have said goodbye to six members of staff this week: Miss Pluim, Mrs Horgan, Mrs Rooney, Mrs Johnson, Mrs Hemmings and Mrs Archer are all leaving us today. We would like to thank them for the contribution that they have made to the school and to the lives of so many children. I know that you will join with me in wishing them every success for their futures. We hope that they will all stay connected with the school in some way or another but for now - they will be very much missed!

We hope that everyone has a restful yet fun-filled summer break! Please do keep up with reading at home - both children reading themselves and also being read to by a grown up or older sibling. This coupled with talking to your lovely children is the very best thing that you could do to help them with their learning!

Have a lovely summer.

My very best wishes,

Mrs Freeman

Headteacher and Designated Safeguarding Lead
