Dear Parents and Carers
We have had a lovely day. Year 4 enjoyed their picnic on the field. There was lots of bubbles and more than a little rain. I hope the Y4 parents enjoyed my very fetching poncho?
We said goodbye to our Year 6 children this afternoon. :((
This was a Leavers Service with a difference but I have to say it worked! I loved listening to the staff talking about the children with such knowledge and affection. I said one thing to every child when I gave them their cross. 'We are here if you need us'. I meant it.
We give them a cross, yes, because we are a church school but also to help the children remember the love we have shared with them while they have been with us. I talk about love with the children in assembly regularly. It is the most important value for me.
If we have love then all other values: respect; forgiveness; trust; tolerance etc all fall into place.
Best wishes and love go to all our Year 6's. I expect to see them in their 'too big uniforms' in September.
I speak to Mr. Bell fairly regularly and I believe the High Schools have a thorough transition package to welcome the children in Year 7.
I have attached a letter from Karen Dolton (Bury Local Authority) to all parents of children returning in September.
Have a lovely evening everyone!!!
