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 June week 2

Here we have a true Pride of Prince Edward. She is a delightful little girl who brightens up our day with her smile. She is kind, considerate and has a great sense of humour. She gives 100% to everything she does, even if she finds it a little bit tricky. She perseveres and gets the job done. We are honoured to give this special and rare title to her.

What a superstar! This young man may only be in Y1 but he has already proved himself to be worthy of the Pride of Prince Edward. He has an amazing attitude to school and all of his learning. He is always eager to learn and always able to answer questions when asked. He always completes his work to the best of his ability and perseveres when things get a little bit tricky. He is a popular member of the class who is always kind to his friends! A perfect choice for the Pride of Prince Edward!
