I’m sure that many of you will have been following the news and have picked up on the statement regarding school closures.
The key announcements from the government are as follows:
- The earliest schools might ‘begin to re-open’ will be Monday 8th March
- There will be a plan/review set out on Monday 22nd February with further updates
- Schools will not be asked to open over half-term for children of critical workers
Sadly, this means that we have at least four more school weeks of home-learning under the current arrangements. I know that this will be very disappointing for many families and for our children. School staff are very sad too that we won’t be returning to normal school life for a while. We hope that the work being provided, the live meetings on Google Classroom and the weekly celebration assemblies and information posted on Facebook are helping everyone to continue to feel a part of our Tree Tops community.
Moving forwards, we will continue with everything that we have in place and keep looking for ways to keep everyone supported and motivated.
We are very grateful for the effort that you, as parents, are putting in to support your children. We have been so impressed with the messages, photos and completed work that we are receiving. Many of our staff are also parents and we really do understand how difficult this can be! Please remember that we are here if you need us. We are just an email or a phone call away. We are all in this together, it’s just that being together does not always mean that we are in the same place.
