End of Year

Can you believe we are almost at the end of the school year! 


We have had a wonderful end to the term at Rushy Meadow. Our Year 6 pupils bought a tear to the eye with their Leavers’ performance of The Next Big Step, including a goose-bump inducing rendition of The Greatest Show. 


A huge thank you to the PTA, who organised our Summer Picnic. It was lovely to see so many parents (including my own!) come along to support the event. The Picnic raised over £700!  


This week, we say goodbye to three staff members. Miss Wakelam, Wren class teacher, Miss Maclaren, one of our Hearing Resource Base Teaching Assistants and Mrs King, Year 6 teaching student. Miss Wakelam has been with us since September 2022, quickly settling into life at Rushy and developing a lovely rapport with the students in her class. Miss Maclaren has worked at Rushy since June 2021, supporting a number of pupils with communication and language, and always looking to ensure children felt confident to use their voice. Mrs King was first a parent at Rushy, who has since worked with us for a number of years as a teaching assistant and completed her teacher training this year. She will be fondly remembered by many pupils and staff, particularly those who she accompanied on Year 6 residential trips.  


We are delighted to announce that two staff members will be celebrating weddings over the Summer, returning in the Autumn Term with new last names. Miss Knight (Key Stage 1 Phase Leader and Kestrel class teacher) returns as Mrs Nairn. Whilst, Miss McCarthy (Year 2 and Emotional Literacy Support Assistant) returns as Mrs Greenfield.  


We are looking forward to enjoying the final few days of term with the pupils, including a celebration assembly that will give us a chance to say our goodbyes to Year 6 and recognise pupils’ achievement this year.  


Please be reminded that school finishes on Friday this week (21st July). Pupils from Years 1 to 6 will return to school full-time on Monday 4th September. Meanwhile, Nursery and Reception pupils have a staggered beginning to the school week.  


We wish you all a relaxing summer break and look forward to seeing you in September.
