Many parents and carers will already know that we received some delightful good news over the Christmas holiday period. Mr Deane was fortunate enough to be included in the Queens New Years Honours list and will travel down to London at some point this year to receive an OBE. This is a tremendous honour and tribute to all members of the school community; teachers, support staff, children, parents and governors. We want everyone to share in this joint honour and it is on that basis that I will accept this on your behalf. I hope to do a special school assembly later in the year to show children the actual medal and photographs/ film of the investiture itself. In this way children can hopefully understand what is meant by an OBE and also understand that they have an important share in this award.
Can I say a huge thank you to all of our parents for donating money towards a brilliant staff party last Friday evening after school to celebrate together the Queens Award. The food was delicious, the cakes especially and also the beautiful engraved statuette. I will treasure this gift for many years! Thank you for your kindness and generosity.
