Message from Mrs Barrow    25.3.20

Dear Children,
I hope you are all ok and keeping yourselves safe and well at home. I know these are strange times and it must feel very odd to be at home and yet not really on holiday and not able to go out and see your friends and family. I am sure that this and the worried faces of the adults around you and the things you are hearing on the news are making you feel anxious. That’s ok, everyone is feeling a little anxious at this time and it is a perfectly normal response to what is happening around us. It is important to talk to a trusted adult if you are feeling worried and they will help to explain and reassure you. I will be sending out some information for parents to share with you that might help. You might want to write down or draw a picture of your feelings in a journal too.

  
All the teachers and I are missing you and your lovely smiling faces and are missing the great conversations we share and the learning we love to do together. They are all working very hard to keep in touch with you through Class Dojo and emails wherever possible so you know we are still here and thinking of you. They are always happy to hear from you and to see the lovely pictures of the work and activities you are getting up to at home. I feel like I was just getting to know you and you’ve all disappeared but I am sure it won’t be long before we are all back together again.
It has been great to hear from all the teachers about the number of you who are having a go at the activities they have sent out. I know it must be very strange trying to do things at home and even more strange having mum or dad trying to teach you. Be patient with them I know they don’t do it quite like your teacher does but believe me they are trying their best.

  
I know the teachers keep sending lots of new things please don’t think you have to do everything they send. Just do what you can, a little bit is better than nothing and will mean you are ready to learn and go further when we are all finally back together. I also heard that sometimes the Class Dojo is not always working so teachers are trying to email you instead we are also looking at other ways of setting you work and activities while we are apart.

  
Your parents don’t like having to say no to you meeting friends or going out to the park either but Mr Johnson our Prime Minister has given everyone instructions that they must stay at home unless they are working in essential industries or in hospitals helping to keep everyone well and well fed. Some teachers are also looking after the very small number of children who have mums and dads who work in these critical areas and trying to keep them safe too. Everyone is doing their bit and you are doing your bit by staying at home and keeping away from others.
It has been wonderful on my drive to and from school to see all of your lovely rainbows in the windows. The rainbow is a symbol of hope and a promise that there are better things ahead. Let’s remember that.
I will stay in touch with you and your Mums and Dads.

 
Take care and stay safe.

  
Mrs Barrow

   

   

Coronavirus Update   23.3.20

As you are aware school is temporarily closed for the time being. This closure is intended to support efforts to contain the virus.

We are providing childcare for children of key workers and other vulnerable children at New Mill Infant School. This is to keep children safe and to allow key workers to care for the sick or to keep supply chains running. If you are a key worker but not currently at work, please keep your child at home to prevent the spread of infection to other children and staff and follow the social distancing guidelines.

Every child who can be cared for safely at home should be. If your child is not in school then follow the social distancing guidelines. Parents should do everything they can to ensure that children are not mixing socially in a way that could spread the virus.

If you are a key worker and your child or someone in your household becomes unwell, follow the the Government guidelines regarding self isolation. Do not bring them to school.

Thank you for your cooperation and continued support at this difficult time.
