Crawford’s Primary School
First and foremost, we hope you are all well and safe. During this continued difficult time, it is ever-more important to reach out and support each other. We are here for you so please do contact your child’s teacher or me if you require any assistance.
It has been uplifting to see the nation come together and, during these unprecedented times, show their support for all key workers, most notably the NHS staff who continue to inspire us through their aspiration to treat, care, and support. I have to say, this must not omit everyone who is working together to fight this pandemic. You and your children at home have been incredible in adapting to a very difficult home-learning situation and for that, you must feel incredibly proud. I must also thank all of our teachers and staff who have been amazing in continuing to work long hours, while also attempting to home-school their own children. As a staff, we have been planning every single day, continuing our own training, and having ‘virtual’ whole staff meetings every week.
It has been amazing to see so many of you engaging with the communications and learning we have been sharing with the children. The teachers are working extremely hard ensuring that your needs and interests are catered for. Google Classroom is proving to be the most effective approach to supporting your child(ren). While I appreciate there have been some teething and access issues, I am delighted to see more and more of you engage with this approach. I am also pleased that the delivery of Chrome books to many of you has significantly supported your home-learning provision. We are due to receive a new stock of Chrome books so please do contact your child’s teacher or the office if this is something that would help you.
So, until the next important update, remember ‘inspiration follows aspiration’. Keep up the amazing caring for your children and continue to aspire to provide them with happy, fun, productive, rich-filled learning experiences.
‘There is no education like adversity.’
