A message from our Executive Principal
Thank you for all the support and the lovely welcome you have given to teachers and staff who have begun their "Keeping in touch' calls. The teams at each of the schools have been really positive and we hope it helped your children feel connected with your school communities. We know at very difficult times, feeling connected and maintaining trusted relationships is so important.
Sadly, the reality in our country and within our communities is that some children, families and staff are going to be affected by loss and grief as this dangerous virus continues to spread. It is very hard to get the balance right between keeping upbeat and positive whilst ensuring we are equipped to support our children if they suffer a loss or experience significant illness within their family circle.
We do think now is the right time to provide families with some resources and support materials that may help through the difficult times ahead. So, we will shortly be uploading the websites with information that may be of help to you, your child and your family. Of course, we hope that they won't be needed but part of our professional role moving forward will be to support children to manage grief, change and loss. We hope you find this approach helpful. If you are struggling and need help or advice, please do get in touch.
We send our heartfelt thanks to the key workers across the community who now are recognised as being the glue of our society - we applaud you all, not just for now, but for what you have always done. I would also like to shine a light on the school teams - they have been brilliant. I am proud and humbled to lead such generous human beings.
It is an unusual Easter weekend. Quite simply - take great care, keep safe and be kind to yourselves.
