End of term
I want to thank you for your support this year. It has been a challenging year, covid has still had an impact and of course, the unnaturally hot weather this week has also presented us with different challenges. Your support and understanding of the measures we have had to put in place has been much appreciated. Despite these challenges we have had a very good year. The children’s learning and the progress they have made has been excellent.
I am very grateful for the commitment of all the staff in school for making this a year where we began to get back to pre-covid times. All the children have been able to enjoy some amazing trips and workshops as well as a range of after school clubs. The music and sport opportunities for all the pupils have been incredible. So much has gone on, both in school and out, throughout the year!
Sadly, at the end of the year it is often a time where we say goodbye to some staff members and to our Year 6 - we wish them all well.
As you know, I too shall be leaving Rushy Meadow. I definitely have mixed emotions as I say goodbye. I have loved working at Rushy Meadow. The pupils are amazing, the staff are so supportive and committed to doing their very best. I have enjoyed getting to know you as parents and carers, and building strong relationships with you and your children over the years. Coming to work these past five years has been a pleasure. Your kind words to me over the past few weeks mean a lot to me – thank you.
I have no doubt that Mr Needham will be welcomed by you all in September and that he will make sure this wonderful school continues to thrive and flourish.
I wish you all an enjoyable summer break. I hope you get the chance to spend time with family and friends.
