Dear Parents/Carers,

Another year at Westfield Junior School has gone by in a flash and we are saying goodbye to our lovely year six pupils as well as staff and pupils who are leaving to go on to other schools.


Mrs Christie is leaving to go back to Ireland with her family and Miss Brett is off to Australia to do a bit of travelling and teaching. We wish them both well for the future – they are both amazing teachers and will be sorely missed at Westfield.

Good luck also to pupils who are leaving to go to other schools – Freddy Parkyn is going to Newbold Verdon with Skye and Lewis Greenwood going to Weavers’ Close – all fabulous pupils who will do well at their new schools.


We also say goodbye to our year six pupils who are moving to high schools. Last night we held a Presentation Evening in St John’s Church where the children sang their hearts out and received certificates, medals and shields to celebrate their achievements.

It was a wonderful evening and I would like to especially thank our brilliant year six staff who worked so hard to make the evening the success it was: Mr Lambert, Mr Millar, Mrs Mayfield, Mrs Food, Mrs Chambers, Miss Thornber, Mrs Charity and of course, Mrs Osborne our music maestro! Other staff supported this evening and the PTA paid for all the awards. Thank you also to Mr Hall who presented the Governor Award to Alexa Rey and our Vice Chair of Governors, Jon Berry, who let us have the church for our special evening. Everyone put such a lot of work into this event but it was well worth it! There were lots of tears in the audience but I guess that was because parents/carers felt proud of their children and rightly so.

Today the children sang to the school on a last assembly which was lovely.

Good luck to them at high school. We have done what we can and they are definitely ready!

Have a lovely summer break with your children. We will see the children in school on Thursday 30th August. I hope the good weather holds...

Best wishes, Margaret Greig
