HTPD 24/7/19

24 July 2019

Dear Parents and Carers,

What a great end to a fantastic year! I hope that your children had a good day today. They certainly deserve a restful summer break, as do our amazing teaching team!

I’ve just arrived home after the Year 6 leavers’ barbeque and disco – what a lovely summer’s evening spent wishing our Year 6 children on their way. They are certainly well placed for a move on to secondary school and we all felt confident that they are “embracing the future with hope and confidence”. They have been a remarkable year group, attaining high SATS scores, winning copious sports awards, achieving excellence in music, art and drama, singing with enthusiasm, particularly in church this week, and demonstrating to the younger children how to live life to the full! We will miss them all.

Finally, thank you all for your good wishes, kind words and generous gifts to our staff team. We have all been so touched by your generosity and appreciation. Thank you!

For those families that are moving on, we wish you well and hope that your memories of happy times at HTPD live long into the future. For those still with us next year, we look forward to welcoming you back to school on Thursday 5th September. Until then, enjoy a wonderful summer holiday!

With best wishes,
