Headteacher News Update February

Wembley Crest web

Dear Parents/Carers,

I hope you and your families are keeping well.

I would firstly like to say a big thank you for all the support that you are providing for your children. I know and understand that supporting your own children with learning is not always easy! I am so impressed with the high levels of engagement in the remote learning. We need to keep this up so that we can ensure our children continue to make progress in their learning. Our policy and expectations with regard to home learning is available on our school website.

Last week the Prime Minister announced that it will not be possible to resume face-to-face learning immediately after the February half-term and instead hopes it will be safe to commence the re-opening of schools from Monday 8th March. This is in response to the national public health data and pressure on NHS capacity. Schools have been promised two weeks notice of opening, we will keep you informed of any updates.

We continue to promote the wellbeing of our school community during these difficult times. Year groups are ensuring that this is threaded through the planning and structure of the week. If you feel you need any specific support, please contact me on the school number or through the learning email.

The school will be closed for the half term holiday (15th-19th February). The school is also closed on Monday 22nd February, this is a staff development day which will be organised remotely. School and remote learning will begin again on Tuesday 23rd February.

Again, thank you for all your support.
Mrs Taylor-Kent
