Our value this half term is Friendship. We look forward to sharing with you everything we have planned for this exciting time as we head towards Christmas.

Year 5

Hi all,

I hope you are all still keeping well and enjoying the sunshine safely.

Most of you will know Mrs Ratcliffe as the teaching assistant in our Nursery. Mrs Ratcliffe has been working in the nursery at St George's for over 40 years !! That is a fantastic achievement and    I'm sure she has seen lots of changes in that time. However she has decided to retire and so this week will be her last week working with us. We will be very sad to see her go, but she will still be helping with the Stay and Play group and the Friday ladies group.

In the current situation we can't do a big celebration and send off as we would have liked to do, but we will do something for her later in the year.

If any of you would like to send a message or card or anything at all into school for Mrs Ratcliffe, we will ensure she gets them by the end of the week. I'm sure lots of you and your children will have very fond memories of Mrs Ratcliffe and will want to wish her well in her retirement.
