Head's Newsletter

Dear children, parents, staff and governors,

What a wonderful KS1 and KS2 sports day we had yesterday, in the Paddington Recreational Grounds and today, in the school playground, with nursery and reception classes. It was lovely to see so many parents enjoying all the sporting events that their children took part in. I would like to say a big thank you to Miss Armstrong and Coach Grant for organising all of the events. The winning House was St. Francis with a mere ten point lead. Well done to all the children who showed such wonderful sportsmanship and physical prowess. The children will enjoy their ice lolly reward today.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your friendship and support over the past year. It has been an honour and a delight to spend my final year of Headship with you all. I have many happy memories to take with me. I am absolutely delighted to know that I am leaving the school in such capable hands as those of Mrs. Husain. Having worked with her for the past year I know that she is a very capable and experienced senior leader who knows this school so well and has already done so much to raise attainment levels and to keep this school in the top 60 state primary schools in the country.(Sunday Times League Table 2016). I know that you will support her and her team as she continues to give your children the most enriched and academic education.

I would like to thank all of the staff of St. Joseph’s for being such wonderful educators and support workers. It has been a priveledge to work with you all. I would also like to thank the Governing Body for giving me this opportunity and supporting me over the past year.

I hope that you all have an enjoyable summer break.

Yours sincerely,
Mrs. V. Richardson Head teacher
