A message from the Trust (Sue Rogers, DCEO)

The first half of the summer term is the shortest of all the school terms but this year has been one of our most important. For our children settling back into school routines and experiencing both renewed friendship and renewed learning has been our greatest priority. Whilst this has of course come with some anxieties for adults and children alike we are so proud of how your children have settled back into school life. I am sure, like you, we are yearning for greater freedoms and we trust that the Government will feel able to keep to the proposed timetable.  In building back together and hopefully building back stronger from our shared experiences over the last 15 months, we perhaps realise even more the importance of connections and relationships that we have missed during this time. Perhaps we will never take for granted the simple act of hugging friends and family ever again.  As a Trust of nine schools we belong to an organisation called the Confederation of School Trusts. This enables us to share and learn with thousands of schools up and down the country. At a recent on-line conference Kate Green OBE, Shadow Secretary of State, delivered an important message:  “Schools are one of the only public services that will touch all of our lives; they are one of the most powerful means we have to shape the life chances of every child and the life of every community.” We absolutely agree with this statement and every day in as many ways as we can we support your children to be the very best they can be in character, in attitude, and in their learning. I hope you all enjoy the half term break and fingers crossed for some sunshine!   Best Wishes Sue Rogers  Categories: 1 CategorySchool News

Message from Sue Rogers DCEO

It was so lovely to welcome all our children back on March 8th. Just to see them with their friends and settling back into school has been a pure delight for all of us. All our schools planned very carefully for their return.  The return to learning has been balanced with a great deal of social and emotional focus, along with plenty of practical and outdoor activity. Thankfully we have had some beautiful weather and this has been a real bonus.   As we head towards our Easter break we thought we would reflect on the year we have all experienced. For all of us this has been quite an incredible journey.  Together we have been through school closures, learned how to do home education, raised £20,000 in our crowdfunder to feed 90 families, delivered over 1000 food boxes over 15 weeks and tried very hard to protect each other from the risks of Covid19. What a journey!   We have all had the opportunity during this year to think about what is really important to us: our families, our children, coffee with friends and just to be able to walk wherever we want. When we get to the other side of this pandemic maybe we will value more of these simple things.   So let us hope the weather will be beautiful this Easter, even if we cannot travel, at least we can enjoy the sunshine in our gardens or on our local walks. We look forward to welcoming everyone back to school on Tuesday April 20th.   Best Wishes Sue Rogers  Categories: 1 CategorySchool News
