This term is a busy one with lots of exciting project work with Pete and trips up to Narroways to explore the woodland. Good weather has enabled learning opportunities planned for outside to be maximised and the children just love the freedom that this brings. Our close relationships with local primary schools means that transition for children leaving us is smooth and well informed.
It is a strange time for me as I retire at the end of this term having been at the school for sixteen years. During that time the school has gone through many changes and challenges but the strength of the local community has remained—one parent only this week said “I just love this community”. The strength lies in the many children and families who come from such diverse backgrounds but who learn from each other as the school year unfolds. I will miss that and know I have been shaped by that over the years I have led the school. We have new challenges as we look forward with a real squeeze on our budget nationally and locally and I would ask that you share loudly with local councillors and MPs the benefits a Local Authority Maintained Nursery School education has given to your child.
