New Beginings

Today is the last day of term and as always, it is met with a mixture of sadness and joy. Joy because we can stand back and proudly reflect on how much our children have grown, developed, matured and progressed and sad because we have some goodbyes. Our first goodbyes are to all our year 6's who have achieved amazing things this year. We are so so proud of them all and will miss them a lot. We wish them all the best in their new schools and we know they will have a a really successful time there.

Another sad farewell is to Alison Bacon our admin assistant who, after many year service is retiring. We wish you well Alison and thank you for all your support and enjoy your adventures.

As one door closes another one opens for Nicky our assistant principal as she leaves us to take up a new role supporting special needs in Derbyshire. Thank you Nicky for all you have done. Good luck in your new job,we know you will ace it.

So as we think back over a successful year, we would like to thank you for the privilege of working with your children and for all the support you have given us.

We wish you all a restful summer ready to do it all again in September.
