End of Year Thank You from Mrs Nation

Dear Parents/Carers,

As the school year draws to a close it is a good opportunity to reflect on the past year. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with the whole school community this year and I feel both privileged and proud to be Headteacher of the school. The school is going from strength to strength and we are looking forward to our visit from Ofsted next year. Our strapline, One Chance,Let's Get It Right, runs through the school like a stick of rock. Everyone involved involved in the care and education of your child at our school wants to 'get it right' and looking back over the school year the events, opportunities and day to day care we offer, bear testament to this fundamental and strong belief we all hold as a staff and governors.

We are very sad to see our Year 6 leave and wish them the very best for their future. They have been an inspirational year group who have worked hard, faced challenges, pushed themselves as well as having great fun along the way. They have achieved a superb set of SATs results, put on an awe-inspiring production of Macbeth, overcome fears at Swattenden and been great fun. They leave us as well rounded individuals, confident and prepared for what lies ahead. We will miss them.

We also have to say a few goodbyes to staff. Mr Faux-Bowyer, Miss Wade, Mrs Peaks, Mrs Dearburg and Mrs Goddard are leaving us to take up new challenges. I know you will join me in wishing them all the best. I am pleased to say that Mr Faux-Bowyer will be returning to the school at certain points in the year to help with musical concerts and events. We look forward to seeing him again soon. We will also be saying goodbye to Mr Hope, who has kindly stepped in to be class teacher for 4PC for five months. I know Mr Hope will be greatly missed by his class and we wish him well.

Music Concert

Our ever growing band of talented young musicians finished of the year in style with a laid back but hugely entertaining concert this week. Credit must go to Mr Miles for seeing the potential of the bike sheds as an outdoor stage and for all the children who took part and made it the perfect ending to a perfect year of music making at HBJS.
