Top 10 Songs For Primary School Leavers

Previous PostAll PostsNext Post
The transition between primary and secondary school is an important moment for pupils, and it’s an occasion schools up and down the country put a lot of effort into marking. Leavers’ assemblies might look a little different this year, but just as teachers and students have adapted their learning for this unusual time, we know there’ll be lots of innovative ways to adapt leavers’ assemblies.

These are some of our top  songs for Primary School Leavers:
