End of Spring Term 2020 Statement
This has been the strangest half-term of my working career if not potentially my life time. We have been working with daily directives from the government and rapid changes to life as we know it.
Before all we could talk about was COVID-19, we had a few activities at the beginning of the half-term. It was lovely to see you all at parents evening and we will be sharing our results of the questionnaire that was completed by staff, parents and pupils at a later date.
Later in the half-term, we were so sad to have had to cancel a number of school events, clubs, our mother’s day afternoon and our Yr 4 play.
Hopefully you are all looking after yourselves and your families and following the government guidance to stay inside, wash hands frequently and keep yourselves as safe as possible.
This world-wide pandemic will be taught and talked about in history lessons of the future. We are all living this event which feels very much like a scary film. We all need to stay strong and support one another, take time to reflect and live in the moment.
School has been running (whilst closed) since the 23rd March in a very different way. The numbers of children and staff needing to be at school are reducing and we are trying to offer the children a good experience whilst their parents are out working on the front line. Most staff are also working at home aswell.
The majority of our children have been at home working on school tasks and other indoor activities. We are already loving seeing what they have been doing and we are really missing the noise, laughter and learning that normally take place at school. We can’t wait to have them all back as soon as we are allowed.
We will continue to communicate with you to share new ideas to be done at home, but please don’t feel the pressure to do them, just try and carry on with some activities and daily exercise.
Please stay in and stay safe and we will be in touch soon.
