Welcome to our first ever Remote Summer Term

20th April 2020

Dear Parents/Carers,

I hope you all had a restful Easter break and welcome to our very first remote summer term! 

We’ve all had to adapt to new ways of working, so I wanted to take the opportunity to say what an amazing job you’re doing supporting your child’s wellbeing and learning during this time. 

It’s definitely been a strange and challenging time, so it’s ok if you and your child feel wobbly and worried at the moment. We’re here for you every step of the way as we figure this all out together. Remember, if you have any concerns about helping your child learn or you need any other support from the school, please let us know by emailing enquiry@stwilfrd.bham.sch.uk or contacting their class teacher through eSchools.

We miss the children very much, but we must follow the government’s guidance to keep everyone in our community safe. So, we’re carrying on with online activities for the children and provision for vulnerable pupils and children of critical workers.

We’ll also be continuing phone calls to families and children over the coming weeks to see how you are getting on and to have a little chat!

But just because we’re not all in the same building, doesn’t mean we can’t have some fun together! Your children will have lots of activities they can get stuck into over the summer term – so keep a close eye on eSchools and also new today are resources from BBC Bitesize on BBC IPlayer, the Red Button and online at www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize.

We also love seeing the children’s fantastic learning at home – please keep sending their work in as we would like to showcase it on our school Twitter feed.

We can’t say yet when we’ll be able to open the school fully, but rest assured that we’ll continue doing our utmost to keep your child learning and our school community connected. 

Let’s get cracking with our summer term! 

Yours sincerely

R.Baker and all the staff

Stay safe!
