As I write this, it still frustrates me to know that we have no news on when our school will be able to reopen fully. Currently, we are open to children of key workers. At present 31 out of 50 children are attending school which allows us to feel a little bit like normal service but hard on those still at home, battling remote learning. It is no easy task to maintain a regular school timetable at home as well as manage multiple devices and in some cases weak internet connections - that's before we talk about the social benefits of seeing friends daily. For school, it is a challenge to teach all that are present while also educating those at home on what can only be described as appalling internet speeds - something I have been told is being addressed at the highest of levels. 
What we have to remember is that everyone is trying...trying their hardest to keep everything as 'normal' as possible and it is at these times that we have to sit back a little and remember everything that we do have. 
At school our key value this half term is courage - focusing largely on how this word appears in both, encourage and discourage. We have talked about how important it is to have courage to stand up for what we believe, encourage others to keep going and only show discouragement if someone is entering into something inappropriate.
Today, I feel encouraged. The internet is behaving, 3 videos are nearly uploaded for those learning at home, all staff have volunteered to take part in lateral flow testing and my parents are getting the vaccine at the end of the week. 
Life is busy but we will get there, and we look forward to a time when we can have you all back to celebrate with us. Stay safe.
