Dear Parents and Carers

I hope you are well despite these challenging times.

We have worked together as an amazing team, in exceptional circumstances, and I am  proud to call myself Head Teacher of such a fantastic school community.

Andy Gray, Chief Education Officer at CEC, has sent out his latest communication and asked me to share it with you. Please find the links below:



I thank you for your support, your enthusiasm and continued kind words, which I have shared with the staff. It genuinely means so much to us as do each and every one of your children.

There are a number of agencies that you can be in touch with during the school closure to support you and your children’s health and wellbeing. I have been asked to share their numbers with you and attach the document along with Andy Gray’s letter.

I also wanted to share this information with you from the Council detailing support available for families who may be struggling either financial or emotionally.




Please contact them on the numbers and email addresses on the posters.

Remember we will be in touch through the school website and Twitter.

You can contact us at any time through our account which will be checked regularly.

We will all miss your children and their families over the coming weeks and wish you well.

Take care and stay safe.

Many thanks.

Miss Chad
