Last day of school, good byes and holidays begin!

It's the final day of school and it has been a wonderful year! We've had amazing sporting achievements, including winning the District Sports competition last week, great academic results, our outstanding Section 48 Inspection report and seeing all the children’s individual success stories.

On Monday morning we had our very special Leavers Mass at Ladywell Chapel. Being in the chapel is always special and it was a lovely setting for our final Mass of the school year. The children read and sang beautifully and we would like to thank Fr David for celebrating this Mass for us. I love seeing the children walking together and I hope that this is one of the many things that they will always remember about their time at St Edmund’s.

Yesterday we had our final Golden Assembly of the year, there were some very special awards presented and the overall winners of the House Points Cup were announced. This year St John's house won with an impressive 10,639 points! We have so much to celebrate this year and hearing all the wonderful achievements of the year reminds us all of how much progress the children have made.

This morning we have our final Leavers' and Award assembly. The children were presented with special awards: for academic achievement, writing, sporting achievement, upholding the school ethos, and the Governor’s award for the most improvement. We also looked at some funny photos and shared memories of our Year 6 children from long ago, before they started school. It is a lovely, entertaining way to finish their journey here at St Edmunds. We wish them every happiness and success in their new schools. They leave us proud of their achievements, and confidently ready to face exciting new challenges, we look forward to hearing all about their future successes.

I wish everyone a very happy and restful summer holiday, we hope the beautiful weather continues into the holidays. Please look after each other and I look forward on seeing everyone safe and well in September.

Have an amazing summer,
