My colleague Sue Sanderson, Headteacher at Swarcliffe Primary School, sent me this e-mail at the end of a quite remarkable year for the school...

"Hi Chris, I wanted to take a few moments at the end of the year to share with you that everyone here has made, yet another year at Swarcliffe Primary School, such a success and amazing place to be! As headteacher I am so lucky to work with a fantastic team. A team of Governors, parents, children and staff. EVERYONE here gives 100% and more!! I want to especially highlight every member of the staff. Our staff are so keen, enthusiastic and willing to have a go! Yes! they certainly throw themselves in to everything from Wake Up Shake up..Street Dance….dressing up to time travel...challenging learning...discos...Christmas performances.. Summer Fairs... Prom...digging up the allotment...organising tiles on a new welcome mosaic ...the list is endless. Everything they do they do because it has a impact on our learners. And what amazing learners we have! As I watch our Year 6 leave I am so proud knowing we have released a group of young adults in to the wider world! As the team leave this evening to relax, rejuvenate and regroup the message is we've been a bit down but we are not out! We look forward to September to starting it all again! Watch out on Monday 7th September we will be back with a bang to launch our focus on Sculpture. Please look at this picture ~ its from the Year 6 Prom last night ....

...look at those faces; they are the future, they are what keep us coming back for more!!!
Thanks again, Sue."

It's wonderful to watch the real progress that the school has made during the last year under Sue's inspirational leadership and to see the results of her hard work in her childrens' faces is simply wonderful.
