A message from Joanne Crocker

In our previous newsletter, we were looking forward to welcoming all of our children back into school and with their return, Spring appeared bringing it's message of new beginnings. We have all been incredibly proud of the children, who have shown remarkable resilience and positivity and bounced (literally in some cases) back into school ready to embrace new experiences. Nonetheless it has been a challenging term for everyone and the children are certainly ready for a break.

Thank you all for your support of our small schools and we wish you a joyful, safe Easter.

Assistant Head of the Small Schools’ Hub

A Message From Sue Rogers Deputy CEO

Dear Parents and Carers, I do hope you and your family managed to enjoy some time together over the half term break. I appreciate that we couldn’t really go anywhere but at least the pressure of home schooling was relieved!    With the publication of the Government’s roadmap we can now have hope for the future. Whilst this has been a very anxious time for many of us there is a light and real hope for those things that we have all been missing. Time with families, opportunities to take a drive to the seaside or for a walk somewhere different. Holidays! I wonder if we will ever take those things for granted after a year of not having those very basic freedoms.    It has been lovely to have as many as 40-50% of our children in our schools during this last lockdown but I can say that we are very excited about seeing all our children on March 8th. We are currently ensuring that we are ready and making plans for the continued safety of your children and our staff when everyone returns. Whilst we all know that learning is very important, and of course we are planning to accelerate every child’s progress as we move forward, we also know that for our children being back together with their friends, taking part in physical activity, creative work and opportunities to be supported with their social, emotional and mental health will also be very important.    I have just been reading a letter from the Youth Sports Trust’s ‘Well School’ Board, that has been written to share with children and young people but I thought this was such a positive and life affirming message for all of us as we begin our new journey on March 8th.   Here is a quote from the letter:   “You are the future and that future is not written. There are challenges but there always have been and always will be: we know we will get through this together. We have complete faith in you. We want you to know that; more than anything. Do not let us or anyone else tell you what you can or can’t be. We don’t know. We cannot imagine what you will achieve. But we are so excited to see and be a part of it.   We hope to see you back in our school very soon. Whatever happens next, it will just be another step in your journey.”   What perfect encouragement for our children, our staff, our parents and the wider community to begin to write our unwritten future.   We look forward to welcoming your children back to school on March 8th.   With best wishes,   Sue Rogers  Categories: 1 CategorySchool News
