Message from Suzanne Flack CEO

Welcome back. It has been lovely to welcome everyone back after the summer break. The lovely weather has certainly added to the joy of the new term and on my visits to schools it has been lovely to see so many children learning outside. Schools have been fine tuning their curriculum offer and the pupils can all look forward to a year of exciting opportunities. Across the Trust we are focusing on reading so please look out for all the ways we will be inviting you to support our work. Reading with your children at home is key to their success. We will be sharing lots of ideas and resources with you so you can both support our work and have lots of fun.   I’d like to extend a special welcome to the pupils, staff and families at Stockland who look forward to their first full year with the Trust. Already Stockland is fully integrated into the Trust and is both receiving and providing support to other Trust schools. It is this partnership working which is so beneficial to all of our schools. We’ve had a busy summer holiday upgrading facilities at many school sites. Over the last few years we’ve received almost £2 million pounds in additional funding to improve our buildings. Some of this has gone on work which can’t be seen but is much appreciated such as updating heating systems. Other improvements include new windows, roofs and the reconfiguration of Minerva to increase the size of the nursery.  As you know all schools are working within government guidelines but the changes have meant a return to some of our previous ways of working. This has had a really notable impact on our children who all look so happy and settled in their classrooms. We continue to work with Public Health England and follow their advice if we have a positive case. Fortunately we have had very few cases in our schools so far but we monitor this closely to ensure we are responding swiftly. Thank you for all your support with this. Clearly Covid has not gone away but I am very optimistic about the new school year.  Categories: 1 CategorySchool News
End of Term Letter from Trust Posted on: 16/07/2021

End of Term Letter from Trust

Dear Parents and Carers; As we race towards the finish line of this very unique academic year, our schools have still been a hive of activity with sports days, school trips and much more, all following covid guidance and restrictions.  We would like to thank all those involved in the planning, preparation and facilitation of these activities for our pupils. We would also like to thank our parents, carers and local communities for your understanding of the changes that had to be made to ensure everyone’s    safety.  Although parents and carers were unable to be there in person, all our schools are delighted to share some fabulous pictures from these events on Social Media and our school websites so please check these out. Throughout the year there have been a plethora of good news stories across all our schools.  Our children have benefitted from health weeks, winter wonderlands, art exhibitions, special community contacts, fundraising, returning to church school status, a new school joining ( a special welcome to Stockland C of E Primary Academy), forest school activities and art projects.  In a year that has been so changeable we have been immensely proud of all the achievements and  activities that our staff have managed to organise.   The Trust would like to offer a fond farewell to our year 6’s.  It’s been a pleasure to see you flourish and develop and we wish you well on your journey to secondary school.   As this is our last newsletter of the school year, we would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their hard work through what has been a very busy, certainly different and sometimes difficult year, we wish you all a very happy and relaxing summer break.   Best Wishes Suzanne Flack  CEO, TRLP    Sue Rogers DCEO, TRLP  Categories: 1 CategorySchool News

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

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

Message from Sue Rogers Deputy CEO

Dear Parents and Carers, I do hope you and your family managed to enjoy some time together over the half-term break. I appreciate that we couldn’t really go anywhere but at least the pressure of home schooling was relieved!  With the publication of the Government’s roadmap we can now have hope for the future. Whilst this has been a very anxious time for many of us, there is a light and real hope for those things that we have all been missing. Time with families, opportunities to take a drive to the seaside or for a walk somewhere different. Holidays! I wonder if we will ever take those things for granted after a year of not having those very basic freedoms.  It has been lovely to have as many as 40-50% of our children in our schools during this last lockdown but I can say that we are very excited about seeing all our children on March 8th. We are currently ensuring that we are ready and making plans for the continued safety of your children and our staff when everyone returns. Whilst we all know that learning is very important, and of course we are planning to accelerate every child’s progress as we move forward, we also know that for our children being back together with their friends, taking part in physical activity, creative work and opportunities to be supported with their social, emotional and mental health will also be very important.  I have just been reading a letter that has been written to share with children and young people and  I came across the following quote: You are the future and that future is not written. There are challenges but there always have been and always will be: we know we will get through this together. We have complete faith in you. We want you to know that; more than anything. Do not let us or anyone else tell you what you can or can’t be. We don’t know. We cannot imagine what you will achieve. But we are so excited to see and be a part of it.   We hope to see you back in our school very soon. Whatever happens next, it will just be another step in your journey.” What perfect encouragement for our children, our staff, our parents and the wider community to begin to write our unwritten future. We look forward to welcoming your children back to school on March 8th.   Best Wishes Sue Rogers  Categories: 1 CategorySchool News
