Year 6 End
It is clear to everyone that pupils have had a year 6 experience that was so far from what we had hoped for and expected.
The pupils have missed out on so many events (trips, Trewern, SATs...to name but a few). However, I hope that in the midst of disappointment we can be grateful for the fact that we are safe and have our lives ahead of us, which we will need to grasp with both hands.
I am thankful for all the staff who have sought both remotely and in-school to support your children. It has been a real challenge for them too, and I know that they have sorely missed the face-to-face contact with so many.
We know that the pupils would love to have had a proper send-off from Valence. Our proposed plan is to invite all the leavers back to school one afternoon after school for a leavers’ celebration. We are planning this for September at each site and will give you more details when we return. We believe that event will help us bring closure to the Year 6 2020 team and furnish us with lasting memories (and photos!) of Valence.
