Dear Parents and Carers,

After 7½ years at St Giles, it is time for me to retire. I’ve really enjoyed watching all the children grow and develop, reaching their goals and moving on to life beyond St Giles.

The school has changed enormously over this time with lots of building work to adapt the classrooms to meet the needs of the current children; changes to curriculum and assessment; and the introduction of new events like the Prom and the Primary Show. But the work in school is never finished and I know that the new headteacher Kathy Lewis will continue to develop the provision to ensure that your child is supported to ‘Be the Best They Can Be’.

Thank you for all your support for the school, and for me, over the years.

Happy holidays,

Ginny Marshall
