END OF TERM

We have reached the end of one of the most extraordinary school years in living memory. In the last term particularly, as a community we have all faced incredible challenges, and it is likely to continue for sometime. However, there are many positives which have come out of the situation. You have succeeded in helping your children with their school work, supported them through a confusing time, and engaged well with the school. Well done, I know this has not been easy.

I would like to thank my staff who have risen to the challenges we have faced, learnt how to operate Google Classroom and supported our families throughout. They are a credit to our community, and I know you will join me in wishing them a well-earned break.

We said a fond farewell to our Year 6 children and families. We had a lovely, socially-distanced service. Thank you to all those families for their support throughout the time they have been with us.

For those families leaving the school completely, we send you our best wishes.

We wish you all a lovely summer. Stay safe, our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Wednesday 12th February Whole school sponsored walk. Attached is a sponsor sheet, please sponsor your child and all proceeds will be going towards the school library and reading books. Please dress in funky sports clothes and ensure you have a change of shoes as we will be on the school field. (Children can wear wellies as it may be muddy!)
