“Thank you so very much for the success that this year has brought K. You all personally are responsible for this!! You all make the school!! That I truly believe. Without your dedication to each student, the passion you bring, none of this would be possible. You are all truly wonderful human beings, who are in this profession because you want to make a difference. These students will be your legacy. I’m dyslexic, I have achieved so much in my life due to a teacher Mr L. My dad had a teacher he speaks about who made a difference in his life, Mr D. Teachers are life changers, especially for children who join Potterspury! You are a gift in life, please remember what you mean not only to your students, but also to parents.Thank you from every part of my being. It’s been a long painful journey, I speak for many… we are so very very lucky!”
