End of Term 3 Message from Mr Eden

Dear Parents, Carers, Children and Staff,

Well, we have made it to the end of this very bizarre, often frustrating, and highly stressful term. I have to say, that in the years I have worked in education, this term has been the most intense due to the lockdown and the need to adapt and evolve extremely quickly to the varying elements that have been introduced at speed. I have to be honest and say that it is down to you all that this has run has smoothly as it has-I am in awe of you all...throughout everything though, the trials and tribulations that have presented have been overshadowed by the smiles and the joy seen in the connections that continue to be made and the learning, in spite of everything, that has continued regardless of the barriers we have faced.

Parents and Carers-you are all truly phenomenal! Your patience, resilience, support, honesty, openness and kindness has known no bounds (as always) and your encouragement has helped get everyone through! To those who have continued to homeschool-I take my hat off to you-the job is relentless and difficult when you have to wear all of your other hats and I know first hand how that particular juggling act can go-you’ve done a great job and your children will only ever thank you as you both remember these crazy times-Well done!!!

Children-well, what can I say...every challenge and obstacle that is put in your way, you overcome it with determination, resilience and achievement! I am literally the proudest headteacher in the world right now as I sit and consider what an exceptional bunch you are! Thank you for your hard work and efforts-we are so proud of you and you need to make sure you rest and relax this half term (your parents will definitely appreciate a few lie-ins)! Keep smiling and keep safe-we shall see you soon!

Staff-we have planned, implemented, amended and evolved all in blocks of 24 hours, taking every day as it comes to ensure our children and families gain every ounce of support needed. Our school community is thriving because of every post holder in our glorious school...thank you for your service...thank you for your enthusiasm and encouragement and thank you for putting others before yourself as we continue in our quest to help our school community be the best we can be!

Have a restful half term break everyone...my fingers are so very tightly crossed that we can welcome the children back into school very soon...as soon as we know more, we shall be in touch regarding this but for now-we are where we are, which may well be in Lockdown, but ultimately, we are in this together and united and for that I cannot ever thank you enough.

Take care everyone, stay safe and well and I shall look forward to seeing you next term.

Best Wishes,

Mr Eden

Half Term-February Arrangements

Dear Parents and Carers,

I wanted to write to you with respect to the forthcoming half term that is scheduled to take place on week commencing 15th February. In the past, during the pandemic, the school has remained open for the provision of key worker families and vulnerable children during half term holidays. We have had notification from the Department for Education that for the February half term break, all schools are to close as they would if schools were open as usual, meaning that for the period of Monday 15th February to Friday 19th February, school will be closed to all pupils and no remote learning will be posted during this time. Children will not be expected to undertake any scheduled learning during this time.

Please use the holiday period to encourage the children to move away from their screens and devices as this term, unlike any other, has promoted the children spending more time than ever online.

Thank you, as always, for your continued support as we navigate our way through this lockdown. Should you need us for anything in the period before half term, please do not hesitate to ask. School will reopen for Key Worker/vulnerable children who have requested provision for the week commencing 22nd February and it is at the same time that the teaching staff will also begin posting online learning and live sessions with Term 4 starting on Monday 22nd February 2021.

Best Wishes,

Mr Eden
