In my final blog of the year I would like to pay tribute to all our wonderful staff who have worked so incredibly hard during these difficult and strange times. It has been a testing time for everyone involved in keeping our school open and I would particularly like to thank my fantastic School Business Manager and the site management team who have ensured that we comply with all the safety measures put in place to keep our pupils and staff safe.
For all the parents and carers working so incredibly hard to educate your children at home - thank you. It must have been a very trying time for you. Hopefully you felt supported by your child's class teachers and pastoral teams who were here for you whenever you needed them.
In my final letter of the year, I set out the arrangements for the return of our wider school community in September and I must say that I am excited by the thought of us all being together again. In the meantime, I particularly like this poem as I feel that it sums up all that we should be appreciative of. In these trying times, when people have lost loved ones and lives have changed, we must always still be grateful for all that we have. I hope that you have an enjoyable summer and I look forward to meeting up again in September!
Take care and God Bless.
A Day Will Come

A day will come in every life,
When appreciation is rendered.
And this should be taken seriously,
And given with love and tender.
Anyone who deserves appreciation,
Must have done something great.
So share with them the way you feel,
And always treat them right.
But keep in mind that appreciation,
Should be given again and again.
If you truly appreciate,
You'll remind them how great they've been.
Do something special to thank the ones,
Who've made a difference to you.
But don't forget to thank them again,
For everything they do.
