News from the Trust
Dear Parents and Carers
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!
