Dear Parents and Carers,

Although our school site was closed on Tuesday due to snow, children across the school enjoyed Internet Safety Day with a range of remote learning activities. We were delighted to be able to continue with our teaching of live lessons and remote learning
through the use of our Google Suite. This last year, we have all realised how much the Internet has enabled us to continue with learning, work and connect with family and friends we cannot see. Thank you to Mrs Lucas, Computing Lead, for arranging our Internet Safety Day activities across the school.

I hope you find our virtual Parent Consultations useful and informative, our teaching staff are looking forward to speaking with families. These meetings are vitally important for your children and help us to inform our planning and teaching for the
next term.

This week has also been Maths Week and children have enjoyed a range of activities themed around measurement and comparison and concluded with the usual celebration of maths hats both virtually and in school. My thanks to Mrs Buchanan,
Maths Lead, for organising fun and engaging activities across both KS1 and KS2.

I would also like to extend our thanks to James Broomfield of OurTech for his donation of laptops to our school. This kind gesture has enabled us to assist more of our children and families with easier access to remote learning.

As this half term draws to a close, I must thank my staff team for their continued commitment and support in doing the very  best for all the children - thank you. I would like to also express my thanks to you all for your engagement and commitment with both home learning and in school learning. As a new “acting” head teacher, navigating remote learning in national lockdown,followed by the worst snow we have had in three years - I am  very grateful indeed for your support and positivity.
Finally a massive SHOUT OUT to Mr Walpole for the hours of extra work that he has done this week - in the freezing cold - making the site safe for staff, parents and of course children.

Please remember that tomorrow, Friday 12th February, is an INSET day; our key worker provision will be closed and there will be no online learning set.

Have a wonderful half term. We look forward to continuing with both our in school and home learning provisions when we return.

Have a wonderful week.

My very best wishes,

Mrs Freeman
