Thank you & see you on Monday

Dear parents & carers,

 

As we come to the end of this period of homeschooling, I want to pass on the appreciation of everyone here at Bignold for all you have achieved in supporting your child's education during this lockdown.

 

Since January, kitchen tables, living room floors, bedrooms & dining rooms have become teaching spaces. You have had to wrestle with webcams & support with Zoom sessions. Stationary cupboards have been raided & printers have been working on overdrive. You have done PE in parks/gardens & contended with online yoga.

 

Many of you have also had to juggle all of this with your own work commitments. Something I know from personal experience is not easy at all.

 

In short, you have been amazing! Well done for surviving homeschooling ... again!

 

We are really looking forward to welcoming the children back on Monday. Please see some brief reminders below:

  • Adults need to wear face masks on-site - please speak to a member of our team if you are exempt from this.
  • Only one adult per family at pick-up & drop-off times please.
  • We operate staggered start/finish times (see below):

Lateral flow testing for families:

Please find on our Newsletters page a letter from Norfolk County Council explaining how adults in your household can access Lateral Flow testing kits. This testing is being made available to all households where there are school-aged children. The tests are for adults NOT children.

 

With my very best wishes,

 

Chris Newman
