Holy Family School closed on Friday 20th March and re-opened on Monday 23rd March to provide childcare support for the children of critical key workers. It has been lovely to see some of our children in school and a privilege to support the work of the NHS and other key services.

I want to thank all the staff at Holy Family for keeping school open and for attending on site in these difficult days. This has involved all the school team of: teachers, teaching assistants, admin staff, Site Manager, cleaners, kitchen and welfare staff. When people thank teachers for doing their bit – we should instead thank all those staff connected to schools as we can’t do it without them.

We have been keeping in touch with all our children through our learning portal ‘Seesaw’ and ‘Tapestry’ and appreciate all the lovely comments we have been receiving from children and parents.

Please stay safe during this difficult time. By us all following the guidance of social distancing, self-isolating, hand washing and making journeys that are essential we are all doing our part to help the NHS deal with this national emergency.
