Whole School Changes!

Only two weeks ago, our school was operating as normal. Our children were learning in classrooms and playing outside among the spring flowers during breaktimes. Our teachers were planning exciting lessons for the remaining weeks before our Easter holidays and even some staff, were planning on travelling abroad for a week or so. 

Suddenly, we found ourselves working hard to follow the new rules in our country. We were all washing our hands at every opportunity, sanitising, and in recent days, we were keeping social distancing rules. Throughout all this, our families kept bringing our children to school, our pupils kept learning and we all stayed calm. Our Y6 pupils even went on residential for the week! We’re a close community! We work well as a team. We’re strong! 

In the background, the staff in our school were planning for big changes. We didn’t know what would happen next but we were planning. As I write now, our school, like all the schools in our country, are closed. We must stay at home as much as possible. We know we have a few exceptions. We also know that we need our key and critical workers to still go out to work to keep our country  ticking over. 

Our school is dedicated to keeping our key and critical workers doing their jobs. We remain open for the children of these workers, for our most vulnerable pupils and those with Educational Health Care Plans. The staff in school, are selfless. They are still showing up for work to teach some of our children. I am proud of them. Behind the scenes, the other staff are designing home learning, making videos, sharing links and answering emails from the children. Our children won’t be forgotten – no matter how long this goes on for. 

I will continue to update all our families too. The most important message from me for now is this: stay safe, stay at home and stay healthy. We want to see everyone return when we are allowed to open our doors to everyone once again.

Pride of Prince Edward

POPE MArch 3

This wonderful pupil has been trying incredibly hard to become a Pride of Prince Edward and she’s finally done it! Our school just wouldn’t be the same without her caring, hard working and friendly nature. It is lovely to see her helping the reception children on the yard as well as supporting other children in class. You are an absolute superstar and we are so lucky to have you in our class to bring smiles to all of our faces.
