As the end of the year draws to a close I would like to take this opportunity to say an enormous thank you to all our parents and carers for all the support you have given to school throughout what has been another challenging year for everyone.
I am so proud of what all the children have achieved and despite the disruptions they have ended the year having made so much progress and lots of fun along the way!
I would like to say a huge thanks to all the amazing staff - they have worked tirelessly throughout the year to enable the best possible opportunities for all our children.
Sadly, we now have to say some goodbyes...
Firstly, to Mrs Bagshaw who is retiring having taught at NGIS for over 30 years - she has added so much to the lives of so many through her creativity, caring nature and sense of fun over the years. Mrs Bagshaw - we will all miss you! Good luck and enjoy your retirement!
Secondly, to Miss Sagar-Hesketh, our Bears' teacher, who has been a joy to work with over the past 3 years. She will be missed by staff and children alike and we wish her huge success as she relocates to her home town. Good Luck!!
And finally, our amazing Year 2s. There was one part of the Leavers' performance where I think they summed it all up...
'Our Nether Green journey took us on a different path...but sometimes the path you take makes you the special people you are. And sometimes the unexpected makes you appreciate all the wonderful things in life'
Year 2, you are all so special. As you move on to your new schools be confident, and be yourselves because you are all amazing!
We will miss you all. Thank you for being such superstars!
Take a look at some of the highlights from this week

Amazing Efforts!! Keep Going we are still top of the Locality F leader board!!!

The challenge continues until 28th July!
We are hoping to take the Year 2 children for a short visit to NGJS on Monday morning, to familiarise themselves with the school site.
Unfortunately the previous visits were cancelled due to Public Health advice which advised against face to face transition, however we have been given permission for a short outdoor visit.
If your child is not going to NGJS they can either come to school for 10:30 or come at the normal time and join the walk. If your child is arriving late please let us know via email by 9:00 and what they would like for lunch.
Please bring beat the street fobs!
