Head Teacher's Message

It is hard to believe another term has flown by and we are breaking up for Christmas.  It has been a particularly busy and exciting term, starting on a real low with the sad loss of Dawn Williams in August, but ending with the celebration of her life at the opening of the memorial garden yesterday.  This was funded through the generosity of our families and her  friends within school.  The opening ceremony attended by many members of Dawn’s family was beautiful.  We will all remember her.

 Following really positive feedback from our Ofsted team we look forward, in the Spring Term, to building on our strengths  and developing our practice in line with the advice and guidance provided. 

 The children have been involved in a variety of activities and experiences, planned around our new curriculum which have excited and engaged the children with learning.  The activities have included many exciting visits out of school and some interactive experiences arranged within school.  We look forward to many more visits and experiences next term.  Thank you to all of our parents for supporting these experiences through paying the termly £5.00 contribution.  Without this contribution these trips and experiences cannot take place.

 I know you will all want to join with me in wishing Mrs Burke and Mrs Evans every success and happiness in their new ventures;  Mrs Burke takes the next step on her career path by taking up her first headship at Percy Shurmer Academy, and Mrs Evans as she begins a new life in sunny Spain. Both Mrs Burke and Mrs Evans have given so much to the school over the years and made many friends across our community.  We will all miss them greatly. 

Everyone at Lea Forest Academy would like to wish you all a happy, safe and enjoyable Christmas and a prosperous New Year
