The End of a Fantastic Term!
What an amazing start to 2019 this term has been. In six short weeks, the children have given their all, making the most of the learning opportunities and showing everyone around them the progress they have made. We always look for ways to celebrate this and meeting with you at parents’ evening is just one way. Thank you for taking the time to meet with your child’s teacher and looking through their work. I hope that you were impressed with the work in their books as well as the information the teachers shared.
We have had several special visitors to the academy this term and only this week, welcomed both Sam Ruddock, the Para-Olympian and also Ben Smith (who ran 401 marathons in 401 days). The children are always really inspired by such motivational speakers but they are not always aware of the reciprocal element of these events; that visitors such as Ben and Sam are equally inspired by our pupils! It makes me very proud to hear that they love to visit the academy and spend time with our pupils and I hope you are too. Our pupils demonstrate a keenness to learn as well as a positive attitude to new experiences. They also epitomise the values that we have built our academy round and we will continue to find opportunities to motivate our pupils further.
We are about to begin our half term holiday and I wish you and your family a restful week hopefully full of bright, sunny days. We look forward to seeing you back at the academy on Monday, 25th February for the start of Term 4.
