... Have a Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year!! - School Re-opens Tuesday 6th January 2015....

We have finally reached the end of term and, like every week since September, the children have done us proud. Choir took part in an amazing performance at Shirley Methodist Church on Saturday, well done to all of those who took part and a special thanks to Miss Stokes and Miss White for organising and running choir since September; I know the children love it!  On Wednesday evening our Year 3 children performed ‘The Match Girl’s Christmas’ at Shirley Baptist Church. Here we enjoyed performances from talented musicians, dancers, singers and actors and I’m sure that there was not a dry eye in the house by the end of the night! It was a truly memorable performance thoroughly enjoyed by all, it definitely started Christmas for me! Well done to the Year 3 team for their hard work – you are all fabulous!

At the end of this term, sadly, we have also had to say goodbye to a number of staff. Mrs Stewart retired after 16 years in school on Thursday and we will be saying goodbye to Miss Turley and Mrs Afzal today. We will miss you all deeply and wish you the very best for all that lies ahead. We know that you’ll stay in touch and keep us posted on your future adventures. We will also say goodbye today to Mrs Williams who is starting her maternity leave. We hope that you enjoy every minute and can’t wait to see the new arrival in 2015.

I would also like to take this opportunity to say thank you to everyone for your support and kind words over this term whilst I have taken on the role of Acting Headteacher. I can’t quite believe where the last 15 weeks have gone! It has definitely been a steep learning curve but made very much easier because I work with fantastic children, staff and parents every day. I know that Miss Wilkes is very excited about the year ahead and we look forward to welcoming her into the Sharmans Cross family in January.

Have a wonderful Christmas break; stay safe, keep well and enjoy!

Please may I again remind parents about the parking restrictions around the school. Some parents are continuing to park inconsiderately on both Woodlea Drive and Sharmans Cross Road where yellow lines are in place. The safety of our whole school community is very important and we are continuing to monitor the situation closely. Please let us know if you see cars parked illegally by giving registration numbers to the school office, repeat offenders will then be published on our newsletter. Thank you for your support in this matter and ensuring the safety of our children.
