As you will be aware we have been working with Public Health this half term due to the high volume of illnesses. Please see below for further information.
Last academic year was quite a difficult and challenging one for everyone. Despite bubble closures, isolations, lockdown and remote learning, we were so proud of the way all of our children adapted and responded to the ever-changing circumstances we found ourselves in.
They quickly found their feet with our new classroom layouts, coped with split playtimes and lunchtimes where they may not necessarily have been in the same bubble as all of their friends. They have sat in rows, followed one way systems, been given first aid by staff in full PPE and had to learn to log on to Showbie. Despite all of this, they remained happy and cheerful, ready to learn and followed all of the rule changes magnificently, knowing that by working together we were all trying to keep each other safe.
This has been a lot to cope with, yet the children managed all of this. They have been resilient and remained cheerful in some very difficult circumstances. We are proud of each and every one of them and they should be very proud of themselves too!

We have our fingers crossed for a a less disruptive year. Whilst we still do have measures in place to keep us all safe, these will be constantly under review and discussion in order to make the right decisions for our the whole school community.
It is lovely to welcome everyone back to school in this new school year, and we are all really looking forward to the fantastic things we can do together.
