Thank you very much to all of those who responded to our survey on Survey Monkey about the school and the current Covid situation. At last glance we had 85 responses which is great. The link to the survey was sent out in an e-mail on
Wednesday where you simply click on it which will take you to the survey, it takes on average 2 minutes to complete.
It was lovely to read the supportive comments from parents in regard to how we are adapting to the Covid situation. I completely understand the views of those parents and carers who are worried about their children -not because of anything we as a school are not doing, but because of the rapid rises of Covid-19 in Medway, the positive cases amongst staff which has resulted in them having to self isolate and bubbles of children going home. Despite lobbying from our professional unions and the concerns of school leaders -the DfE require us to stay fully open, to carry on right up to the 18th December end of term date and to expect all children to be in school unless absence is authorised by us. Our hands are tied– we are duty bound to remain open and provide education as we did pre-Covid, but we will continue to keep your children safe and review the situation almost on a daily basis. Your support and understanding is greatly appreciated.
Due to Covid-19 the Christmas usual festivities can’t happen as they normally do but we will have a Christmas dinner on 9th December, class bubbles singing Christmas songs and carols which will be posted onto the individual class Jotter pages and we are also planning to put a whole school Christmas song recorded in sections and then linked together for our website. Decorations will go up, Christmas cards will still come in but will be quarantined for 72 hours and we will make this Christmas as jolly for everyone as we always would, but again in the words of the Prime Minister, we will also continue to be “ jolly careful”.
Have a good weekend abiding by the Covid-safe regulations.
Mrs K Sexton
