The last couple of days have been a bit of whirlwind for us all but we are starting to get a picture of how the next few weeks or months will work.
Those who are eligible for places have been contacted. If you have not heard from us, please assume that your child does not have a place on Monday.
Whilst a large proportion of our pupils will no longer be allowed in to school, there are plenty of activities to keep them busy on the website – please keep checking back as we will continue to load up work, links and suggestions for as long as we are able to remain open. If they would like to and have the facilities to email work in to us, we would love to see what children are doing. Staffing levels will dictate how quickly we will be able to reply.
We have spoken with the children and explained that this is a unique time in our lives, instead of being worried, we have the opportunity to spend time with our families, to learn new skills, to be creative. Our pupils’ children and grandchildren could learn about the corona pandemic of 2020, wouldn’t it be great to have stories to tell them of what we did, how we helped each other, how we were creative and thoughtful (and didn’t just play on our x-boxes all day!). Any diaries we keep now could be used in history lessons in years to come!
I can honestly say that we have no indication of how long the closure will go on for but I can say that we will continue to be open and provide for those eligible families, for as long as we can.
I’d like to take this chance to say thank you to all our families, you have been very understanding, followed our new rules and just been all round supportive and lovely. Your comments and words of encouragement and support have been very much appreciated by us all.
We will do our best to keep you all up to date via email and Facebook.
Stay safe and we look forward to seeing you all again as soon as possible.
