A Message from Mrs Webster to start the Summer Term
Dear parents / carers,
I hope you all had a restful Easter break and welcome to our very first remote summer term!
We’ve all had to adapt to new ways of working, so I wanted to take the chance to say what an amazing job you’re doing supporting your child’s well-being and learning during this time.
It’s definitely been a strange and challenging time, so it’s understandable if you and your child feel anxious and frustrated at the moment. We’re here for you every step of the way as
we figure this all out together.
Remember, if you have any concerns about helping your child learn or you need any other support from the school, please let us know by either calling the school during normal school
opening hours (although limited staff are in the office to answer your call) or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Form tutors will be continuing to support you and will try and make daily contact with you again from Monday 20th April 2020, via phone or e-mail. We hope that this is helping you as a family in a number of ways.
We miss having the pupils in school, but we must continue to follow the government’s guidance to keep everyone in our community safe. So, we’re carrying on with our 'remote
learning' while providing education on-site for a few children of key-workers in the fight against COVID-19.
Our teachers will be setting plenty of tasks for pupils to get stuck into over the summer term. Please do not feel they have to complete all tasks as we know some students work much
better in school with support and their well-being is far more important to us and to you. These tasks can be found on our website on the dedicated pages for each of the subjects
the students learn. Do remind your child to take breaks away from screens as well, and also make time for having fun, exercising and chatting with friends and family. The PE
department have been sharing ideas daily via Twitter for how to stay active and there are plenty of additional ideas on our website on our dedicated COVID-19 page: https://www.claremountssc.co.uk/covid-19-information/
While we can’t say yet when we’ll be able to open the school fully, rest assured that we’ll continue doing our utmost to keep pupils upbeat and learning.
A couple of specific requests:
- During the Easter break, our staff have put together a lovely, fun 'message' for the students that I'm sure they'll enjoy!! To ensure you don't miss this (and other updates we have planned over the coming weeks!), make sure you are following one or both of our social media accounts: Twitter: @ClareMountSSC or Instagram: @ClareMountSSC
- We would like to decorate our school gates with rainbow messages for the NHS. If you're able to 'get creative' please send your posters / images to email@example.com and we'll make sure they are displayed outside the school
