Summer works; building an even better school

I have been overwhelmed by supportive comments from parents given the recent news about the early school closure. One of the rewarding aspects of being a Headteacher is to share the school with parents who appreciate the long term benefits despite disruptions such as this. Hopefully we won't have to see building exteriors like this for too much longer. PLEASE NOTE - LAST DAY OF TERM: Wednesday 15th July. CHILDREN RETURN TO SCHOOL ON: Wednesday 2nd September.

There continues to be a buzz of lively activity across the school. Yesterday morning some of our governors walked around the school and came across children playing in the Early Years, violinsts practising, the Year 6 children rehearsing, sports in the junior playground and classes of children quickly returning from play to focus upon their learning. And that's not mentioning the numerous visits for new Reception and Nursery parents that ran through the morning. In the evening, I had the pleasure of attending the PTA meeting to discuss a range of issues and plan for the year ahead. As we draw towards the final days of this academic year, I want to acknowledge all the staff at this wonderful school who do so much more than the ordinary to give our children the very best opportunities. And thank you to the parents and carers who share in our efforts to help us make sure the school never "rests on its laurels."
