Weekly Newsletter

Newsletter Friday 19th July

Dear Parents/Carers,

What can I say, it has been an absolute privilege leading Knebworth School into its new chapter over the last academic year. As I often say there is something very special about this school, the colleagues I work with, the parents and of course the children make it such a wonderful place to work. I want to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for your support, your faith in the leadership and your continued positivity.

This time of year is always bittersweet. We welcome the summer holidays but by the same token we have to say goodbye to some of our children and staff. Our Year 6 children are entering a new chapter in their lives and we wish them the greatest success. We have seen them grow, develop and become the amazing individuals they are. We are all so very proud of them. Last week, they inspired us with their performance of Chocolate! which I can honestly say was West End quality. I was speechless for once. This week, they also found the time to host an Enterprise Extravagance. After a brilliant afternoon full of sold out tables and delighted customers, their total profit was a massive £341.70 and all monies raised will be going to the Dog’s Trust charity.

This week at school we have had many sporting successes. On Monday, we started off with our Sports Awards Assembly where we celebrated all of the fantastic sporting achievements this year for our KS2 children including achievements both inside and outside of school. In the afternoon, we played our annual staff vs children netball and football matches where the Year 6 teams had the opportunity to play the staff and their coaches. It was a competitive yet fun afternoon and all of Knebworth enjoyed cheering for the adults and children alike. Furthermore, our Year 5 and 6 netball team played in their last netball tournament of the year where they showcased excellent sportsmanship and were awarded 2nd place in the tournament – well done to all involved. A BIG thank you to Miss Knappett and Miss Breckenridge for their continued dedication towards sport at Knebworth School this year.

From one building site to another our Year 2 children visited the new library site this week. They had a wonderful time seeing the machinery in action and they also asked some great questions, were respectful and polite. We all look forward to visiting again when the build is complete.

Finally, I wish you all a restful and enjoyable summer. We very much look forward to seeing the children back in school on Tuesday 3rd September.

Kind regards,
Natasha Laskey and the Senior leadership team.
