Welcome back to school!
Children and families gave some wonderful feedback on how they spend their half-term break. Question’s like ‘when is school opening’ and ‘I am looking forward to coming to school’, made us realise the importance of school life to all the community.
The pandemic defined and brought to focus the roles teachers play in the development and growth of young lives, quickly adjusting to a new ways of teaching, working extremely hard because of their passion, to see each and every one of their pupils to excel in education, and everything that they do.
Covid – 19’s sudden appearance last year taught us not to take anything for granted. It has taught all of us around the world to adjust, plan, and review the way we live and work in a ‘never’ before way. Some children may have thrived in being schooled differently; others may have struggled in not having the structure, routines and boundaries in place, and there will be for some ‘catch up’ needed, however in the face of adversity, we have all been creative in learning.
Resilience and self-sufficiency are life skills, and how our children have learnt has been different from other communities, especially for the children with parents who have no or limited English or technical knowledge.
Parents have looked forward to our wellbeing call weekly, and staff felt that trusting relationship has been build, which gave an insight in how we can support each and individual family.
As we are about to start school, many of you and your children may be anxious, worried about the do’s and don’ts. The school has sent information to all parents on the protocols, please read Mrs Davison’s letter. Children will be excited in coming back to school and a little worried, talk to your children, check the information from Miss Wilkinson our Family Lead Support, who has put on information on the school website, for you to help your child manage those worries and anxieties.
