The A-Z of Tudor 2018-19 (and more)...
What an awesome assembly it was on the final day of term. In addition to the prestigious Tudor Headteacher Awards, there were special goodbyes, attendance awards, a fun A-Z review of the year and even the announcement of a child who had reached a diamond merit award!
For the winners of the Summer Headteacher Awards, follow this link to our 'Celebrating Success' section of the website that shares this information. These children were able to sit on the Velvet Tudor Thrones that are brought in especially for this prize giving each term.
It was great to see so many 100% attendance certificates for the summer term. This really highlights a true commitment to education. Furthermore, to see the number of children that received an extra award for having 100% attendance for the WHOLE YEAR was also so pleasing. A huge well done to every child and family that achieved such perfection...
The A-Z of Tudor for 2018-2019 was also fun to read out. Some letters were easy to think of but it is only when you look over the complete year that you realise how much we have all done together! Here is the complete A-Z:

A massive well done to Klara in year 4 who achieved the fantastic milestone of the 'Diamond Merit Award'. Only a very few children have received this special badge and she should feel very proud.
As you know there has also been a few goodbyes to some staff members and all those moving on to new things (like jobs on the other side of the world!) were able to receive some special gifts.
They will always remain part of #TeamTudor... just like all the children that took part in this special assembly...
Enjoy your summer everybody.
