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.

This week’s winner is the perfect person to be given the Pride of Prince Edward Award! She is a real role model in Sapphire class! Since the start of the year, she has worked exceptionally hard in every lesson. Not a day goes by that she does not try her absolute hardest and push herself to achieve new goals. She has so much pride in her work! She is kind, polite and charming and we feel very lucky to have her in Sapphire class! She is a shining star with so much potential. I am absolutely thrilled to be able to name her as the new Pride of Prince Edward.

Here is a superstar! It is hard to believe she hasn’t become a Pride of Prince Edward before now. Kind, friendly hardworking – she is an absolute pleasure to have her in our class. She wants to be friends with everyone and goes out of her way to make other people in class feel happy and at home. She tries just as hard in lesson time, where she works her socks off to listen, understand and learn. I can’t imagine what our class or school would be like without her in it: she truly is a Pride of Prince Edward!
