End of Year Assembly 2021
For the first time since 2019, the whole school got together this morning for an end of year assembly. We all gathered in our separate bubbles on the school field, close to a section of the grounds that was sown with wild flowers and had trees planted earlier in the year.
We gathered together to reflect on the year, celebrate our success and resilience and to say goodbye to the Tait family, Year 6 and three valued colleagues: Mrs Hodgson, Miss Parry and Mr Wilson. Whilst Miss Parry has only been part of the school for a few years, she has done a wonderful job and has developed close relationships with children and colleagues alike. We wish her all the best in Manchester. Mr Wilson has been our site manager for 14 years and is taking his well-earned late retirement from the end of the month. Mr Wilson has done great work for the school and has been a real character around the site. Mrs Hodgson was worked at the school since the last century and has seen hundreds and hundreds of children pass through the school. We thank her so much for her wonderful work and wish her all the best for her retirement. All these colleagues will certainly be missed from September.
(All these flowers were grown on site.)
Despite everything, this has been another very successful year. Our commitment to home learning, and the hard work and support of our families, means that most children have made good progress – especially higher up the school where the children and curriculum was more adaptable to remote learning, and the lockdowns are a smaller proportion of the children’s time in school. We look forward to a full uninterrupted year from September, where we will put in place more support where needed and deliver a rich, vibrant curriculum for all our children.
Many thanks to all the staff for all their brilliant work this year, and I wish everyone a very happy summer holiday!
