I am really excited to have heard the news, announced by the Government, that schools are to reopen to all pupils on Monday 8th March. I will be putting together information on what this will look like for the children, but am going to endeavour to keep it as similar as possible to last Autumn Term, with staggered starts and finishes, class bubbles, and wearing PE kit on PE days.
As families you have all done such an incredible job over the past 6 weeks, but it will be fabulous to get back to some semblance of normal. 😊
Lots of things really aren't easy at the moment, and so Mr Seal has put together a list of organisations and their websites which could help.
Remember, you are not alone in all of this, and there is help out there.
