Dear Parents and Carers,
Almost every end-of-term newsletter begins with the phrase ‘it’s been a busy term’, but I think I am justified in saying it this time! The children and staff have worked so very hard and time has simply flown by. It seems hard to believe that we began this term packing away Christmas decorations and wishing everyone a happy new year.
The abundance of new buds and blossom all around us, now that Spring has finally arrived, reflect the many new things that are flourishing inside school too. This has truly been a term of innovation and creation. We unveiled our new library recently and have marveled at its unique designs. We have introduced weekly Forest School activities and brought in several new after-school and lunch clubs too, including Jun- ior Road Safety Officers, Newspaper journalists, tag-rugby, book club and French club. We have introduced our new Feoffmentor Programme, where inspiring speak- ers come and talk to our children about their interesting professions and hobbies. We have even had a host of friendly and talented students visit us every week from West Suffolk College to paint and decorate the Early Years rooms and corridors. Our Early Years garden has seen many new improvements (thanks to our fantastic parent vol- unteers) and we have started placing pots and plants around the main playgrounds – with many more to come! At the beginning of next term, we will see our brand new website launched!
Behind all these exciting new initiatives lies a community of hard-working staff and volunteers dedicated to enriching the learning experience for our children. Any organ- isation like ours runs on goodwill – that positive energy which turbo-charges every- thing it touches and turns ordinary projects into gold. Without the goodwill of our dedi- cated governors, staff, volunteers, parents and pupils, Guildhall Feoffment would not be the vibrant and energising place that it is. We are very lucky to have so many stakeholders who regularly give up their time and energy to make memories for our children.
I hope you have a lovely Easter with your families and return safely in the summer term, to more new adventures, hopefully in the sunshine.
