Letter to Parents from Mrs McBeth 24.2.20

Friday 24th April

Dear Parents/Carers,


It is hard to believe we are now at the end of our 5th week of lockdown. We totally appreciate that everyone’s lives have changed beyond recognition. I would like to say a big thank you for all of the kind messages of support we have received from yourselves during this time, they really have meant a lot.


We are obviously trying to support the issue of home learning with our weekly plans, which I hope you are finding helpful. We are aware that there is now an abundance of online materials available which must be quite overwhelming. Our advice would be to use our plans as your main support and dip in and out of other materials as you see fit.

You may now find on some of the weekly plans a link to Espresso/Education City. The login details the children will need to access this are:

Username student491

Password discovery 2020

Thank you for the emails you have sent to the distance learning email account, please keep them coming as the staff enjoy reading and responding to them.


However, I must reinforce my previous message which is please do not stress about school work. I think the following letter which has recently appeared on social media  sums everything up.


Dear Parents,

Don’t stress about school work. When school opens we will get your children back on track. We are teachers and that is our superpower. What we can’t fix is social- emotional trauma that prevents the brain from learning. So right now we just need you to share your calm, share your strength, and share your laughter with your children. No children are ahead. No children are behind. Your children are exactly where they need to be.

With love all the teachers on planet Earth.


On that note, please take care and remember that we are still open and here to help.

Mrs McBeth
