Head of School message week beginning 4th May 2020

Dear Children, Mums, Dads and carers,

I hope that you are all keeping safe and well and that you were able to have a nice weekend.

Thank you so much to all of you that have been in touch to let me know how you are getting on at home. I received some lovely messages and some great photos of all your creative home learning projects. Please keep them coming if you would like to and I know that lots of you are sharing your work with your teachers too.

The new home learning weekly documents are on the website ready for you to use this week. We hope that you enjoy the new Oak Academy lessons and the other ideas that your teachers have put together for you. Children who are in school at the moment are also going to be completing the same lessons so we will know what you have all learnt once we do get back to school.

Please do get in touch with your child’s year leader or teacher if you have any problems accessing the learning on the Oak Academy platform or if you need additional exercise books to record the learning.

We are all waiting for the Government announcement this week regarding gradually moving out of lock down and how this will affect schools. We know no more than you at this stage but I want to reassure you that the health and safety of our children, parents and staff is always our number one priority. We will keep you informed of any developments as soon as we can.

Thank you if you have already completed our consultation survey around school opening; the deadline is this Wednesday so you still have time if you would like to add your views.

We know that this is a very difficult time for many families; there are lots of local organisations offering support with food and other resources. Please do get in touch with us and we can help you access this. Email our Parent support advisor, Heather Blythe hblythe5jrq@nsix.org.uk

As always, please check the website for up to date information.

I hope that you all have a great week and take care of each other.

Kindest regards

Alison Whalen
