News: Easter Update

Dear Parents/ Carers,

Firstly, a huge ‘THANK YOU’ to everyone who has supported their children over the past two weeks with their home learning. We have been overwhelmed by the commitment and support you have provided, during these challenging times.

Our staff have continued to do an amazing job, providing work for the children, responding to their questions, supporting critical workers’ children in the hub and ensuring that they continue to put the children of Brynford first, during these unprecedented times. On behalf of everyone, I wish to THANK THEM for being brilliant!

It seems strange to say that we are now approaching the Easter holidays. Despite everything, the Easter break should be exactly that, for all children, staff and parents; a break from home learning, an opportunity to spend quality time with the people that you love (whether that be in person, or through social media.) So I ask that you suspend your children’s home learning for the next two weeks. This ensures everyone has a well earned rest.

I have asked staff to do the same. They are doing an incredible job, supporting the HUB, giving up their family time, to provide support for the critical workers, who so rightly, need our help at this time. So staff will not be responding to home learning queries, or setting work for the next two weeks and I ask for your support in ensuring they have this well- deserved break.The well- being of all, is of paramount importance. By continuing to support each other as a community, we will emerge from these events, stronger and more resilient.

I am in awe of everyone’s commitment, dedication and support. Keep safe and well everyone.We will be in contact again after the Easter break. Thank you.

Rachel Critchell.
