End of Year Celebrations!

What a year! This year has been wonderful. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed seeing the children grow and learn; achieve and make progress; investigate and explore; and all the while enjoy their time here at Prince Edward Primary. I personally want to thank all the  governors, school staff, children and families for working in partnership to provide the best possible education and life chances for our children. I feel so proud to be part of this amazing team. 

Today, it is our last day and we had a celebration assembly. Children received certificates for the Children’s University, for knowing all their multiplication facts, for 100% attendance and for homework. Some children not only had 100% attendance for the year, but some children had 100% attendance for two, three and four consecutive years!

One child had five consecutive years of 100% attendance and she was presented with two very special gifts. She loves reading, so she was presented with a bundle of books to take with her when she leaves for secondary school. She also received a glass paperweight with inscription. Well done. We are all so proud and we will miss you. 

There were three sports awards to present too. One child received the school’s Outstanding Contribution to Sports’ Trophy. This was for putting 100% effort in to a range of sports in school. She takes part in the daily mile run, Take 10 daily aerobics, the school’s orienteering team and the girls’ football team. Another child received the Outstanding Sporting Attitude Award. A few months ago when she started swimming lessons at school, she was petrified. With her growth mindset, she persevered, worked on her weaknesses and focused on putting in the right effort in order to get better. As a result she can swim a full length of the pool and has even taken up swimming for pleasure after school. The newest award to add to our huge collection of trophies was a trophy awarded to two girls who took part in speed cycling in the city finals. They came third out of all the competitors. 

Finally, we were proud to present the highest accolade our school can award. It is the Outstanding Approach Cup. This young lady was awarded this for her thirst for knowledge, her love of reading, her consistent 100% attendance, her ambition to be better everyday, her love of school, her love of challenge; and how she can create an epicentre of positivity with all those who know her. We are so proud and we will miss her. 

I sincerely wish everyone a wonderful summer. Please stay safe and I look forward to seeing you all in September when you return. I can only hope that next year brings as much success as this one. 

Thank you and best wishes.

Two Very Special Awards

Friday is a day we celebrate the week’s achievements. We celebrate all those children showcasing the school’s values: from Charming Citizens, Perfect Pride and Presentation, to Leaders in Learning. We present trophies for the best attendance, the best punctuality and tidiest classrooms. Parents join us to congratulate the children and are always so proud.

I have a very special job, and that is to present the school’s most prized awards and trophies too. Today we have a new Pride of Prince Edward and a boy who has received a much rarer school trophy: The Prince Edward Sports Trophy.

The Pride of Prince Edward this week…


This special young lady has been ready to be the Pride of Prince Edward for years! She is such a fantastic ambassador for our school both in class and when she is out and about. She is sensible, hard working and a fabulous friend to others. It is great to see her doing her best. We can’t wait to see what she achieves next!

The Prince Edward Sports Award


This award goes to a Y6 pupil. He is a talented footballer and represents our school in the football team. He is a great sportsman with a great attitude. Last night, during a match, he was ‘talent scouted’ for Sheffield Boys! One person even said, “He’s the best I’ve seen in a very long time.”

Congratulations both. The school is very proud!
