I just wanted to pass on my huge congratulations to you for your fantastic SATs results. As a fellow Y6 teacher, I fully acknowledge how hard the tests are and how much dedication is required from both pupils and staff. What an achievement to meet or exceed the national percentages, especially considering the social diversity of your pupils.
My Son is only in Y3, but we have been thrilled with how he has progressed and the experiences he has had. Many thanks to the teachers and support staff for all their hard work and enthusiasm over the year.

Dear each one of you,
Thank you very much for the commitment, enthusiasm and hard work which you, your staff and your pupils all put into the Minster's Choral Outreach project during the past term.
I hugely enjoyed working with you all had great fun too. The pupils were so attentive, polite, friendly and enthusiastic: a real credit to you. I know how much work is involved from you in terms of keeping the pupils focused and ensuring that they knew the repertoire as well as possible before the concert. I must say that in the 11 years of running this project, I have rarely had a school who knew the songs quite as well (and as musically) as your pupils.
The concert was extremely successful, with many in the audience saying that it was the best Outreach concert yet. This would not have been possible without your help and without the receptive interest shown by your pupils. Judging by their faces during the concert, they hugely enjoyed the experience of singing in York Minster.
The schools' solos were also highly praised by many of the audience. It is very nerve-racking standing up in the Minster in front of 1000 and conducting this item. My sincere thanks and congratulations for this.
I like keeping contacts with the schools with which I’ve worked, so if I can ever be of help in any way, please let me know. In the meantime, please thank and congratulate the pupils and all the staff who participated, including the admin teams who were always very welcoming.
Have a great and well-earned summer holiday when it arrives.

Just a little email to say a big thank you for enabling the year fives, in particular my daughter to sing at the Minster yesterday. It was truly fantastic.
Mrs Hunton, you were amazing and your commitment to the children to enhance their singing ability was evident. Even those who wouldn’t normally sing or be happy about standing in front of a huge crowd embraced it and lots of teeth, through the smiles were seen.
Proud to be a Carr Junior parent
Thank you – My daughter absolutely loved it!
