School Closure - Learning at home

Learning At Home

One of our parents is a key worker at New Cross. She wanted to express her thanks for the posters and cards that the key workers' children have made.

"The pictures have made me cry they are just beautiful.
I will make sure each and every one is displayed. Thank you!

From all the NhS staff and patients."

As we reach what is often the most refreshing school holiday, we are faced with some of the most challenging circumstances our country has seen in recent times.

In our schools, we are doing our best to ensure opportunities for learning are always available on our website and continually brought up to date. We continue to keep Elston Hall open for our ‘Trust’ front line workers and vulnerable families. We have moved to use the Government Voucher Scheme for Free School Meal families to begin after Easter.

I am very grateful to staff from all our schools across the Trust who are contributing to these efforts alongside the personal concerns this brings.

We will continue to review our current procedures and ensure we reflect any national changes and expectations. We do ensure that our ‘school email’ is monitored daily so please use this as a way to keep in touch, ask questions and check things out. While each school’s website remains central in our communication with you all.

Our schools are missing their children, our teachers are too – we just hope like everyone else that we can be back to normal as soon as possible.

All staff in our Trust would join me in these sentiments - Where possible, we hope you are able to enjoy some of this Easter Holiday with your family.
