This final week of our school year has been special. Saying goodbye to our Year 6 pupils, who are moving on to the next phase of their education, is difficult. We feel happy celebrating their successes and achievements but are sad that we won’t have the chance to work together again. It was a pleasure to attend the Prom and Prize Giving on Tuesday, when the parents of our Year 6 pupils were treated to a showcase of the children’s gifts and talents. We are especially grateful to our Year 6 staff team for putting in such a huge effort to make this last half term so memorable for our pupils with the excitement of our Year 6 Show, Leavers’ Trip and Prize Giving.
As our 39 Year 6 pupils leave Greenfield, we say goodbye to 20 of our families, whose youngest or only child is moving on. The three elements of partnership between children, parents and school are central to my philosophy and vision for our school. This close co-operation between home and school has helped these children to feel secure, gain confidence and meet with success. We thank our Year 6 parents for being such an important part of their children’s education and for working so closely with us.
