Headteacher Update 26.7.2021
Dear Parents and Carers,
As a school community we have overcome so many barriers over the last 16 months since the first national lockdown. It has been such an incredibly difficult time for everyone and we have been so grateful for your support during this time. Our staff team have worked extremely hard in very challenging circumstances to try and provide both onsite and remote education and additional support. We have been amazed at the resilience of the children who have settled back into school so well, but there is no doubt that their learning and progress has been impacted by the disruption. To reassure you, we have worked hard to ensure they are back on track and making progress again.
Moving forward, we will continue to deliver excellent whole school enrichment projects i.e. Outdoor Learning Week and Black History Month, which have been a significant feature of our Recuperation Curriculum this year. We will also continue to buy in additional therapy and specialist services (i.e. sports coaching) to support all children and young people across the school, as we are mindful that this is something that really enriches their wellbeing, learning and personal development.
We are hopeful that next term, as national restrictions ease and the risk decreases, that we can gradually make changes to get back to normal; which will of course mean that we can welcome you back into school and we are actively looking at how we can support that when it is safe to do so. I will write to you early next term to update you regarding our plans.
Until that time, please stay safe and we hope to see you all in person soon.
