The last few weeks of this summer term mark the transition of our Y6 pupil to eight different secondary schools.
Most of our children will make the transition to Y7 at Monkwearmouth Academy. Yesterday, the school outlined to parents its two week extended transition programme. While we were aware of the plans, this wasn't officially confirmed with feeder primary schools until yesterday afternoon.
As a result, the children's final day - as a class - will take place on Friday, 8th July. This will include all the traditional end of year activities, including clapping the children out at the end of the school day.
It is with a degree of frustration, that we haven't been able to confirm and share this with you at an earlier date. We have been awaiting confirmation from our colleagues at Monkwearmouth.
Meanwhile, there are lots of exciting plans for those children who remain with us until the end of the school term, which we look forward to.
Please look out for further information/reminders, regarding events and activities, in the coming weeks.
Mr John Howe.
