30.03.2020 We know that our families are having very different experiences at this time. Many of you are able to commit lots of time to your children while at home, some of you are needing to work and juggle phone calls/emails and others may be struggling with establishing a routine and getting or keeping your children focussed. For these reasons, it’s worth clarifying that the most important thing is keeping your children safe, happy and motivated for learning. We are giving you ideas for some remote learning- stick to this as much as you feel appropriate (or choose your own activities). Please do not, under any circumstances, feel under pressure!
I’ll be in touch again soon to give you my thoughts about learning over the Easter holidays. In the meantime, thank you and remember we are here if you need us.
27.03.2020 Just a quick note before I sign off for the weekend to say I have never been prouder of our team than this week. Every single one of us (staff, parents, children) have been thrust into completely unfamiliar circumstances and we have managed like absolute superstars! I have been so thoroughly impressed with the enthusiasm, positivity and support seen on Facebook, in school and in the communications I have had with parents and staff! What a wonderful group we make - all of us doing our very best for the children and community we serve. I so hope that we are back together in our little school soon but in the meantime, THANK YOU and WELL DONE from the bottom of my heart! Have a good rest this weekend everyone before we do it all over again next week! :-)
26.03.2020 Hope you are all doing well. It's been great to see what some of you have been up to at home this week on the Facebook page. Please keep sharing your home learning! Parents: please remember that we are able to provide childcare for children of critical keyworkers (at Great Staughton) if you need it. Please contact us via Facebook or on email@example.com.
22.03.2020 While school is closed, we will use this area of the website to leave you general notes and messages. Please refer to your child's class page and then click on home learning to find activities specific to their year group. :-)
