Notes from Pat
Thank you to those parents who came to see us about their children’s progress.  It makes it easier when everybody is on the same page with the children’s goals and needs.
As this is my last newsletter many thanks once again to you all for welcoming me in to your lovely school.  It has been a pleasure working with you and your children and a special mention to all the staff who are absolutely fabulous.  You live in a beautiful area and I wish you all the best for the future.

Thought of the Week
The good thing about making new friends is that they haven’t heard all your old stories.

 Have a fantastic week
Pat and the team
