Dear Parents, Carers and children of Chilton Foliat Church of England Primary School
So it is nearly holiday time. It is also time to say goodbye to our super Year 6’s of 2020. I am sure a sparkling future lies before you, full of exciting challenges, new friendships and new opportunities. Take our values with you, thankfulness, courage and love and you will be sure to succeed in whatever you do.
We also need to say a few more, fond farewells. To Edward, who is leaving us to enjoy a new educational opportunity. Just like our Year 6’s, take our values with you Edward, enjoy meeting new friends, work hard and have fun! We are also saying goodbye to Mr Hughes. We all hope you continue to progress in a profession which you are clearly made for.
Talking about our values, I would like to say how truly thankful I am that I have such a dedicated, professional and supportive team to work with. I am also blessed to work alongside an encouraging, proactive and yet challenging (in a positive way) Governing Body.
Covid aside, we must remember and take great pride in the successes we have enjoyed this year: the completion of our building project, the new club house and classroom: our Ofsted GOOD outcome and the quality of the report that was written a result.
Whilst I have given my thanks to all my colleagues, both teacher and governor, it is because of our families… because of you… your support, your love of the school and your courageous commitment to continue to build an exciting and progressive educational future for all our children, that I must give my greatest thanks.
Have a lovely summer holiday and we are looking forward to welcoming you all back to school on Thursday 3rd of September.
Take care, with thankfulness courage and love.

Remember we can keep in touch, albeit remotely, there is a special email address available to use if you or your children would like to ask any questions about the work that has been set, send in examples of work completed or photographs of your activities outside of school. We have loved being able to share your children’s achievements and experiences on our website.
The email address is: email@example.com.
I would love to hear from you all, at least to know that you are able to access the website. If I don’t hear, I will pick up the phone to say hello and to check that you have a device and internet access – that way, nobody will feel left out of our virtual community.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for making the dramatic adjustments needed so that we can all play our part in protecting ourselves, families and friends from increased transmission of the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) and thereby limiting its impact.
CSKidsBooks have produced a free book explaining Covid-19 and social distancing in a child friendly manner as many children are feeling worried and anxious, this could help alleviate some of their fears click here to access the book
