A special thank you from our Chair of Governors on his retirement:
"Thanks everyone at Jump Primary for the gifts and good wishes on my retirement. I have had the great privilege of working in a wonderful school, with wonderful people for many years. It has also been a privilege to contribute to the success of the school over this time.
I would like to thank all my friends on the Governing Body for my send off...Can I pay particular thanks to Sue, Kath and Cheryl for preparing and setting up the staff room for the memorable afternoon tea. Thanks to the children in Year 6 for the assembly, to all who contributed to the gifts (all super!) and all who attended the "do!"
I am confident that Jump Primary will continue to go from strength to strength with a terrific staff team and a committed Governing Body."
- Peter Briggs
