Letters to Parents

Letter to parents

Dear Parents/Carers,

I hope that you and your family are keeping safe and well at this time.  My best wishes to you, especially if you or someone in your family has contracted the virus.  It is a worrying time for all of us.

I am writing to you today on what would have been the first day of the Easter holidays.  Families and staff would have normally been having a break from school and indulging in activities that we enjoy with friends and family. 

In this abnormal time, I would like to let you know that we are still here for you during the Easter break and your wonderful teachers will be sending you one PowerPoint that you can use at your leisure to give you some ideas of things to do.  None of the suggestions are compulsory however they may just give you some valuable ideas while we cannot do the things we would normally be doing.

There is also no expectation on emailing the class teacher examples of what you have been doing or if you have completed any of the examples the teachers have given you but I do think your teachers would actually quite like to see some of the things you’ve been up to as they are struggling not being in the school with you!

Your class teacher will be emailing you on a Tuesday and Thursday in the holidays to let you know what they have been up to.  This is valuable to our wellbeing as well as yours.  It helps stay connected at this time and therefore, if you want to email back for an informal chat and maybe upload a photo or two please feel free.  We would love to hear from you.

On Monday 20th April, which would have been our first day of the summer term, your class teacher will be sending through your daily learning as normal.

I hope you all take some time to do something that makes you happy this unusual Easter holiday.  I know I am going to do some baking with my children and maybe watch that box set I haven’t got to yet.

Take care,

Kate O’Connor

Head Teacher
