Unusual Start to a Spring Term 2021
Strange Times As Covid 19 impacts on the school
Along with the Firs SLT, I would like to say how struck I have been by everyone’s resilience and the wonderful spirit of teamwork and positivity that has marked everyone’s response. The key worker children have come into school, coping with how different it all is, working in a different room, staff wearing masks, many children not being there etc. and they have taken that in their stride and got on with their learning each day.
We all very much miss the presence of the children who are not with us at the moment.
I sent a video greeting out which I hope your child has seen and I know that they will have had videos and/or Google Meet sessions with their teachers and I hope these have all helped to show how much the children are in our minds.
I'd like to say a huge thank you to all our staff, who have been so flexible and determined, to welcome the key worker children into school successfully, whilst also delivering high quality remote learning to those at home.
Thank you also to all our parents and carers for your support of the school, your patience with the last minute changes that occurred and the help you are giving children with their learning at home.
All in all, everyone working together continues to make The Firs the fantastic community that it is.
Thank you to you all.
Mr Adam Campbell
