Dear Parent/Carer,

Firstly, I would like to thank you for your support and understanding this term as we have worked together to navigate the new ‘normal’. It has not been without its challenges, but in true St Oswald’s style, our children continue to be a credit to you, us and themselves.

Unfortunately this term, we have had some of our bubbles burst which has meant that it has been necessary for staff and children to isolate. Therefore, children have needed to complete their lessons remotely.

Though we fully recognise how difficult it is to supervise young children working from home, this work is not optional, but an essential element of blended learning to ensure that our children do not fall behind their peers and continue to make progress in these challenging times.

Blended learning can be done online or via a paper pack which can be collected from school. It mirrors as closely as possible to what the children would be doing if they were in their classroom.

Moving forward, if your child’s bubble does burst, we would appreciate your support ensuring that your child completes all work set by their class teacher.

If you have any problems, or need our support in anyway, please do not hesitate to contact school.

Thank you in advance for your continued cooperation and understanding.

Miss Hay

Deputy Headteacher
