Summer Term is here…

Welcome back everyone, I hope that you and your family have managed to have a good break and have enjoyed the good weather as best we can.

Today is the first day of the Summer term and we are back to remote learning. Your role is critical in re-establishing routines at home. Whilst I know that you will ensure that your children are taking part in their remote learning, please also try to ensure that they engage in physical activity each day, read for pleasure, pursue other interests and engage in activities as you were before. Routine and structure is so important for us all and keeps us healthy in mind and body. We thank you for all that you are doing. We have loved all the emails and updates-keep them coming!

As announced by Gavin Williamson during the briefing yesterday, a wealth of resources have been made available by the Oak National Academy and BBC bitesize. Please feel free to explore these yourselves but please remember our teachers are working hard to make sure they are providing learning that is suitable for our children.

As you will have also heard, the government is funding devices and connectivity for some families. These are for children attending secondary school. However, if anybody is struggling to access any of our online learning, for any reason, please feel free to contact us at and we will do all we can to help.

There was also some news yesterday about when schools will reopen physically. This fake news and speculation has been unhelpful and has caused much anxiety. As soon as we have concrete information about this, we will share it with you.

Please keep all of our community in your thoughts as some staff and families will have different struggles during this time. We know that there are brighter times ahead and that we will once again, be able to socialise and be with our friends and extended family. In the meantime, we are here for you and working alongside you. Please keep talking to us as you are all greatly missed.
