Dear parents and carers,
I cannot believe this will be my last newsletter for this academic year! This year has flown by but looking back as a school we have done and achieved a great deal. We are so proud of how far we have come and are excited already for the year ahead. Thank you to all the staff in school for their continued hard work, dedication, passion and enthusiasm, it is a joy to come to school everyday!
Thank you to all the parents who have joined us in school this week for our end of year celebrations. It has been lovely to see you and catch up with you all. Thank you all for your continued support this year, I am so incredibly proud to be the Headteacher of this amazing school.
I hope you all have an enjoyable summer break together. There are lots of fun and free activities available over the summer, when I see these I will add them to the school social media for you!
We look forward to welcoming the children back on Wednesday 7th September and wish all our Year 2 children luck on their first day at South Kirkby Academy.
Goodbye Mrs Conway
