Dear Children / Parents and Carers,
It has been another fantastic year for Glemsford. Not only do we have happy children who enjoy coming here, they also leave with fantastic results. For the third year running, children are leaving year six with results that are well above the national average. In fact, it was our best year ever. Added to this, children are polite and confident. I am extremely proud of them all.
The year has had many highlights including the fantastic productions, the trips that the children have gone on (no matter what the weather!), sports day, sports fixtures and many more small events that make the year so special.
On a different note, Mrs Corke and Mr Watson are leaving us this summer. I would like to thank them both for everything they have contributed to the school. Mrs Corke has done a brilliant job stepping into Mrs Martin`s big shoes and has helped so many parents and children. I am sure we will see Mrs Corke back from time to time next year. Mr Watson will be fondly remembered by many KS2 children and has really helped improve the PE and sports provision at GPA. I wish them both all the best in the next ventures.
Next year promises to be even better. I am very excited about our new curriculum. Children will be doing a lot of science when we come back and class teachers should be in touch letting you know the name of their Science study. Any parents, grandparents or friends in the village with a scientific background would be extremely welcome to come into school and share their knowledge.
Finally, thanks to everyone who has supported the school this year. A brilliant example of your support was how we raised over £2000 at the Summer Fete. FoGs helped organise this great event and the turnout from staff, parents and children made for an extremely pleasant and successful day.
The first day of term is Wednesday 4th September and there will be a chance to meet your child`s new class teacher on Thursday 5th September at 3.30pm. I wish you all a great Summer holiday and will see you in September.
