Dear Parents and Carers,

These past few weeks have been like no other and as the weekend approaches we are saying goodbye to many of our pupils without knowing when they will return to school. 

Firstly I want to say ‘thank you’ to you for the support that you have given the school while we try to navigate our way through such challenging times.  Your patience, understanding and cooperation has been fantastic and meant a great deal to all the staff in school. 

As I write this letter I am not sure when we will be able to return to our normal routine and welcome everyone back to school. 

I recognise that this is a difficult time for you  and I want you to know that the staff are all committed to ensuring your children are supported while they are at home.  Please make sure you check the blogs daily and support and encourage your pupils to work through the activities that the class teachers put on the blog.  Your children’s learning is so important and we want to support you as much as we can with the work that we set.  The blogs will be updated weekly.

As you know, the school will be open to some pupils over the next few weeks but for those of you who will be at home with your children please support one another, and  those in your local community, in whatever way you can.

Our school motto is:

Pupils, families, community: learning and working together.

Let’s make sure we keep that at the forefront of our minds in these challenging times.

I look forward to seeing everyone back in school but for now, take care.

Ms Bretherick
