HEAD OF SCHOOL UPDATE - 26/6/21
Dear Parents and Carers
Welcome to this week’s update.
As I am sure you are all aware, we have had to make some changes to the proposed plans for our end of year summer events. This is due to the rise in Covid cases locally and the recent advice from the government in how schools need to operate safely.
However, we are delighted that we are going ahead with sports day for the children, as they are keen to develop their athletics skills and participate in team events. As I communicated in my letter on 15 June, we are sadly unable to invite spectators. We will ensure that you have an update and we will share photos of events etc. when we are able to. We plan to organise ‘bubble’ events so the children can take part in the fun safely.
On Tuesday this week, we welcomed Kit Messenger into school. Kit is a former primary head teacher and Co-founder of Changing Chances. She is a tutor at the University of Sussex and a qualified coach. Kit is determined to bring about big changes in how behaviour is tackled in the education system and beyond. We are so excited to be working with Kit again. Kit believes in “building unconditional, positive, supportive relationships between adults and children.” It was wonderful that Kit expressed this is exactly what she saw at Glenleigh Park, she voiced that she was incredibly impressed with the children’s focus and attitudes, despite the challenges they have faced this year due to the pandemic.
I really hope you have a lovely weekend and that the sun does make an appearance.
