At the end of our first full week, I am so relieved and proud. Every single person in our community has pulled together and worked with the new systems, even as we continue to tweak and refine them. Pupils, staff, parents and other community members have followed the one-way system, worn masks, kept distance and been patient - even in the rain! Thank you so much to every single one of you for this. We are a strong community and we continue to face this new era together, with a positive, cooperative, supportive attitude. Working together makes it easier for everyone so thank you for that.
We are pleased to release the results of the three distance learning surveys we undertook in August. We hope to have the distance learning plan ready and shared by 18th September and then we can work together on developing skills, routines and competencies that we will all need for distance learning.
Our Parents Association have published a poster showing the key messages for parents in keeping our community safe.
We have decided to continue using homework diaries in the senior end of the school. A key change this year is that parents are not to sign the diaries. The child should be the only person - at school or at home - who touches the diary.
This will be the only book or copy that will be shared between home and school.
Wishing you all a happy and peaceful weekend,
