Headteacher Christmas 2020 Message
Well, we've finally reached the last day of a truly unique term! Parents and carers have been so supportive of all the restrictions this has placed on us and changes we've had to make, so thank you all!
I wanted to pay tribute to all the staff, who have given up so much time to keep school open and functioning well, despite Covid.
Most of all, the pupils have as always, shown us how to make the best of things. From the moment the school opened on 9th September, seeing them all pile in with happy faces, they've been superstars! There has been so much high quality learning going on and they have fully engaged in all of it. They've put up with social distancing, bubbles, lunches in their classrooms, limited contact with their friends, stresses of all sorts! Yet, they keep smiling! We really are so privileged to work here and serve them!
We have been so lucky to have very few positive cases of Covid within our community, however I know of colleagues in other local schools where the virus has spread rapidly, staff and pupils are sick and they've closed the school. This is a stark reminder that the threat is always there, so I would ask that we all stay safe and sensible over the holidays and limit the number of possible transmissions.
I am on call until 23rd, should you have to report any positive Covid cases. The number to text or phone is 07507 316470 and I will be checking this every day before noon.
All that remains is to say a huge thank you to you all and have a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Marianne Best, Headteacher
