Dear parents, carers, staff, governors and friends,
This year at Brindishe Lee …
What an exciting year we have had at Brindishe Lee. The children have learned about the Greeks, the Romans, the Egyptians, how to grow food from seed, celebrated festivals from all over the world and understood how to keep themselves safe in the real and virtual worlds. They have developed new skills in all areas of the curriculum, reflected on themselves as learners and led their own learning. Very well done to all Brindishe children.
Thank you to all parents / carers for the support you have given this year and a big thank you to those of you who have given your time to accompany visits and to volunteering in school.
End of Year reports
You should have received your child’s end of year report by now. If you haven’t got it yet, please pop in to the office to collect it from there. Thank you to all parents / carers who have returned the feedback sheets at the end of the report, please remember to return yours if you haven’t already. Thank you.
The Summer Reading Challenge 2018
Don’t forget to visit Manor House Gardens and the library this holiday to try this year’s Lewisham Libraries’ Summer Reading Challenge ... ‘Mischief Makers!’ It is totally free and, to get started, all your child has to do is sign up at their local library. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information
Farewell to Year 6
We say goodbye to our Year 6 children today. They have worked so incredibly hard this year and we are very proud of all they have achieved – they should be proud of themselves too. We wish them all the very best of luck for their next step to Secondary School and look forward to hearing news of how they grow… Thank you to all Year 6 families for your support for your children and the school over the last seven years too.

As you have read over the last few weeks, we say farewell to a number of our staff team this term and we thank them all for their energy and dedication to Brindishe Lee and wish them every success in their new ventures.
We will welcome Mrs Verity Ferrant in September as she takes the role of Inclusion Lead.
We are also saying goodbye to our Chair of Governors, Spyros Elia, and our Executive Headteacher, Dame Vicki Paterson who, together, have successfully led Brindishe Lee School, and the Federation of Brindishe Schools, over the last 28 years. We thank them both for their guidance and for the wisdom and knowledge they have poured in to building the Federation to the outstanding place of learning that it is today.
My very warmest wishes for you all – families, staff, governors and friends - to enjoy a happy and relaxed holiday together. I hope the sun keeps shining and look forward to seeing you all in September.
