In the whirlwind of busy-ness that is the end of term, all of a sudden we find we are here, at the end of the school year.
We have competed in Sports Days, celebrated at Prize Giving, enjoyed the most fabulous school productions, open days, trips out and then our Summer Fair, a highlight to end our year at Weston Green.
It is natural at this time of year to reflect on our achievements across the year and we do so with immense pride in all we have achieved collectively. We end the year with smiles and gratitude for the many successes of the school year.
It’s always important that the school never sits still, identifying priorities, moving forward and addressing the changes we need to make, to ensure that what we offer remains relevant, engaging and forward thinking. This year our priority has been clear; shining a spotlight on the academic success and enrichment that make WGS so successful. Either through explaining our rich curriculum in a series of parent workshops, highlighting the work of our specialist teaching staff through the “A Glimpse into..” series, through celebrating our academic achievements and the progress in learning through our social media channels, our successes in ISA and external competitions, to the huge success at 11+ entrance of our Year 6 pupils.
It was with enormous pride that we said goodbye to our Year 6, all having secured onward schools of their choice, at a highly regarded range of schools and schools that are right for them and where they will continue to thrive. We can’t wait to hear how they all get on in September, through our recently launched alumni programme in each newsletter.
Already we are planning forward for the next year and are excited to share with you in September how we will continue this focus on excellence, whilst developing the pupil experience and expectations for all and placing an emphasis on the difference that Weston Green makes to each and every child in our care.
Before then, we thank you all for your support over the year and wish all our families a restful summer break. We look forward to seeing you refreshed in September!
