CO-VID 19 UPDATE

 

While we are not publicly able to recognise the contribution that so many of our pupils will have made this term in the usual way, I wanted to take this opportunity to congratulate all of them on the way that they have adapted to the new way of learning that is now in place. Feedback from teachers has been that the overwhelming majority of pupils are keeping up with their work and many are accessing additional online tasks and activities. 

We also appreciate that the challenges of accessing work in some households are significant, with lots of people all trying to get onto the family laptop. Please reassure you son(s) / daughter(s) that as long as they are doing their best, that is all we can ask.

Please note school “re-opens” on Monday 20th April for Key Workers and Vulnerable children. We are aware that the current restrictions on movement and leaving the house can put strains on normal family life and you may find some value in alternative online activities to keep the children occupied over the break.

The following list has been recommended for sharing; Joe Wicks Daily Workout https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAxW1XT0iEJo0TYlRfn6rYQ 

Virtual Days Out https://inews.co.uk/inews-lifestyle/virtual-days-out-best-coronavirus-lockdown-ukonline-art-galleries-modern-wonders-world-2528733

At a time of great uncertainty, we look forward to school re-opening and life returning to normal with no indication yet as to when this might happen. Please continue to check the school website for updates.

If any key worker or vulnerable families need any support or childcare over the Easter period then please email head@rawtenstall-st-marys.lancs.sch.uk

The emails send a notification and will be accessed permanently.
