A Message from Mrs Thompson

Dear Parents/Carers,


This has been an eventful week with the torrential rain and resulting flooding in the school. Many thanks to you all for your support and understanding when we were forced to close the Academy on Wednesday. After a lot of hard work from staff on Wednesday we are now open again - although work will continue for a number of weeks to dry out the classrooms and replace carpets etc. In the meantime Year 2 have moved back into three classes freeing up teaching space for year 3. We are proud of how sensibly the children have behaved throughout.


It is hard to believe that another academic year is coming to a close. This half term is always one of the busiest in the calendar and this year will be no different. As parents and carers you have the annual sports day to look forward to and to those parents with children moving onto secondary school in September a graduation ceremony and the opportunity to see the year group perform on stage. For the children there are numerous sports competitions that we will be entering teams for and our choir will be performing at the Symphony Hall. A fantastic achievement for our choir in its first year of existence. September will come around more quickly than we can imagine. I am hoping to have all staffing for the new year agreed in the next few weeks and will be sharing with the children the name of their teacher for next year as soon as possible. We have arranged a transition day on Thursday 30 June when the children will spend time getting to know their new teacher. Please do not hesitate to contact the school if you feel your child will need some additional support with the transition to their new class.


We have many visitors in our school on a regular basis. The comments and praise we receive about the manners, politeness and respect shown by our children is incredible. As parents you should be very proud of our children. We are very proud of them especially when they are out representing our school at events.


Mrs Thompson, Head Teacher
