Last few days of term

What a lovely Leavers' Assembly we had today. It was very special under the canopy of the trees and the children and audience thoroughly enjoyed themselves. All Year 2 leavers received a special book to remember their time at the infant school too. The scenery was lovely and the show ran without a hitch. Thank you to everyone on the Year 2 team for all their hard work putting the show together.


We have stayed in the shady areas of the school and have continued to monitor the children through the heatwave. They have been great, and we did have a cool off today with the sprinkler-they may be a little damp coming home, but lovely and cool!


Our Year 2 disco is at 4.30pm tomorrow. Pick up and drop off is at the hall door, so please come on round. We can't wait to have a boogie with them!


On Thursday we will be saying goodbye to Mrs Barnaby, Miss Miners, Mrs Marston and Miss Campone. They will all be missed by us all, and we wish them the very best!


Louisa Milburn and George Wakely are stepping down as our Co-Chairs of Governors and Lewis Cleminson, who has been Vice Chair this year, is the new Chair of Governors from the 1st August. I am sure you will all join me in giving him a warm welcome to the role.


Cathy Wilkinson will be stepping down as Chair of our PTA, as her youngest will be going to Year 3, along with some other PTA members. I am sure you will agree that Cathy has done a brilliant job over the past few years arranging and organising events for both adults and children. She will Chair our Annual General meeting in the Autumn Term (date to be arranged), and then a new Chair will need to be voted for. So if you think this is a role within our school community that would play to your skills, please come along (dads too!). The current PTA are very well organised and have a big folder to help plan regular events, with new ideas always welcome.


We have some preliminary data for our school, and how our standards look against Hampshire, and National. The Hampshire and national results and unvalidated at the moment, and will be finalised in the Autumn Term, where we will officially publish our results. The standards can be found here:

On a personal note, I would like to thank everyone in the school community for the care and support they have shown myself and the staff this year. We have caring, supportive staff who all love teaching. We watch our children grow in confidence gaining skills and knowledge year on year. Our children love coming to school and we are united in making sure all the children in our care feel valued as they form their opinions about the world around us. We wish you the very best in the Summer Holidays and will see some of you again in September.


P.S. We have loved reading your report comments this year! Please can you fill in your thoughts on the school on Parent View (The link is below), if you haven't already done so this year. We are always looking at ways to improve. If you would like to write a more personal email, please send to class emails or the school office.
