Christmas Wishes

Firstly, and most importantly, we hope that you and your family are coping as well as you possibly can be at this difficult time. You will no doubt have seen or heard Professor Chris Whitty, the Chief Medical Officer for England, discussing the pandemic today (you can read or listen to what he said here, https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-55612270). Within his key message he highlighted that the next few weeks will be the worst of the pandemic for the NHS and he urged everyone to stay at home wherever possible in order to reduce the spread of the virus. Additionally he stated that, "This is everybody's problem. Any single unnecessary contact you have with someone is a potential link in a chain of transmission."


With this in mind, and with each and every one of us needing to play a key role in safeguarding not only each other but also the NHS, we are asking that where you are deemed to be a key worker and have a place for your child at school you only send them in if you do not have any other childcare provision and where it is absolutely necessary. As a school (and a group of schools within the Trust) we want to support key workers and ensure that those who offer vital and critical services and infrastructure are catered for during the pandemic whilst also balancing the risk of transmission in around the school site. We aim to do this by ensuring that we only cater for children whose parents are key workers and have no other childcare option available along with those children who are deemed to be vulnerable by the school. Currently we have on average 170 children attending on a daily basis. Clearly this means that despite our best efforts, minimising contact between parents becomes increasingly difficult at this time. We are living through a defining moment in the history of our country and as such it is important that as a community we are all supporting each other.


Today has been the first day of our live lesson sessions and whilst we know that there have been (and will continue to be for the next few weeks) teething problems we hope that many of you have been able to access this new form of learning. Our teachers and support staff have put in many hundreds of hours to ensure that this approach offers the best solution to your child other than actually being in school (which we know nothing can compare to).


We know that home schooling is a challenging process which is why we have decided to have a blend of live lesson opportunities along with recorded lessons. In taking this approach we are aiming to ensure that families with more than one child or both parents busy working from home can either access both live and recorded lessons or, where this is not possible, simply access the recorded lessons at a convenient time for the family. We want you to know that we are doing our very best to support you and your child and over the coming weeks we will be looking to offer further support in a number of ways. In the meantime, please ensure that you are all kind to yourselves and know that we understand that things might not always go according to plan with home schooling so please don’t feel that we are judging you at any point. You know your situation, circumstances and child best - our aim is to give you the tools to make the very best of a challenging situation. If you do not have access to a device or the internet and have not been in touch then please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Stay Home. Protect the NHS. Save Lives.
