Dear parents and carers,
September seems like a distant memory now – it has been a long and busy Autumn Term! We are all looking forward to Christmas and our whole staff team would like to wish you all a very happy Christmas and a wonderful New Year. This term has been packed with activities, visitors into school, educational visits outside of school and of course our annual tree lighting ceremony to mark the beginning of Advent. This has all been in addition to our staff and children working extremely hard to cover the national curriculum and to ensure our children all fulfil their potential.
Our school continues to grow with additional children starting all of the time which is a wonderful compliment and testimony to the team here. Let’s not forget our recent R.E. inspection, where we were recognised as being a grade 1 school (outstanding) which is a fantastic achievement and something we have all contributed towards. The highlight for me this year were the three amazing Christmas productions where literally hundreds of people attended to watch fantastic acting, singing and dancing. It was great to see the confidence in our children and the smiles on their faces. Again, these events enrich the curriculum and allow education to take place both inside and outside of the classroom.
Christmas is such a special time of year, the opportunity to spend time with our loved ones and taking time to reflect on and appreciate all that we have to be thankful for. It can be very easy to become distracted by, and allow our thoughts to focus on the challenges that life brings and the many upsetting events that we hear about in the news. In these difficult times it is important to recognise and celebrate all that we have to be thankful for.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all well at this special time of the year and hope 2020 brings you more amazing experiences. As always thank you for your continued support – it is greatly appreciated. I’ve said this many times but the past twelve months have showed that it is very true – together we are making a difference.
Thanks and Best Wishes,
