Well, as the term draws to a close it is an opportunity to reflect on what has been a very challenging term and indeed year. Although COVID-19 restrictions have changed how school is organised - it has not changed the spirit and values of the children and teachers. We have all been working tirelessly to ensure that the children catch up and make progress in their learning. Our catch up programme has completed its first phase, with children from all year groups having extra lessons with a qualified teacher. A huge thank you to Mrs. Westwood and Mrs. Smith for their work on the year 5 and 6 catch up programme. Meanwhile Mr Turner and I have been teaching catch up sessions for lower school in maths and reading. In addition to this, we have been able to offer 6 children intensive after school catch up sessions in maths or reading. Mr Turner is now planning phase two of the programme, when more children will be selected to receive additional academic support.
Have a lovely, relaxing Christmas with your loved ones and we will see you again on Tuesday 5th January 2021.
