Goodbye and Thank You!

16th July 2021
Dear Parents,
 
One of the first pictures I posted on our school website was a picture of planted wellies lined up in front of the shed in the garden.  I sent it to many friends saying "This is my new school - it's just perfect".
Ironically, I now have the same image to mark the end of my time at Slaley First School and that feels very apt.
Thank you for all your kind messages, cards and gifts - I can see a lot of thought went into each and every one and that is so lovely.
 
It has been an absolute privilege to be the Teaching Head of Slaley First School for these past 6 years. I have had an excellent, supportive, enthusiastic team to lead, wonderful children to teach, supportive parents and a village community who understand how important it is to have a thriving school at the heart of their community.
Who could ask for a better way to end their teaching career (31 years and 20 days according to my latest pension statement!).
 
Have a lovely summer and take care.
 
Best wishes,
Mrs. Brett
(Headteacher)
