Dear Parents

We have now completed our fifth week of lockdown and home learning and I know we are all feeling the strain.

Many of you are having to juggle working from home alongside supporting your children to complete all the work that has been set. Dealing with technology issues and new ways of working has been a challenge to us all.

I just want to say well done to you all. We think you are all doing a fantastic job.

We know that times are really tough at the moment, but what is most important is to stay safe and care for each other. Looking after everyone’s mental health is vital. We are only a phone call away if you need to talk.

It has been lovely to hear how much you have all appreciated the phone calls from staff each week and how much the children are loving the live story times and Google Meet sessions. Just to see all the children’s faces brightens up our day.

Thanks to the teachers and other staff in school, your children have access to a great provision, whether they are in school or at home.  We are happy that you continue to do what you can and don’t put any unnecessary pressure on yourselves or your children. Give them time to read, watch TV, go for a walk or do the other things they love to do. Just do the best you can.

We will get through this and look forward to when we can all return to school.

If you are a Key Worker, THANK YOU from all of us for the work you are doing.
