Thorney Close Primary School

"Where Learning Blossoms..."

End of Year letter

September 2020 Opening Information

Dear Parents and Carers,

Tomorrow will be the strangest last day of summer term ever in my 30 years of teaching. We have faced the unprecedented challenges of Coronavirus and tried our hardest to keep the children learning in difficult circumstances. The staff have worked brilliantly since March to keep everything going and I'm immensely proud of all of my team. I am delighted at the thought of us all being back together as a complete school in September.

I'm excited by our plans to get our whole school family back safely, whilst, at the same time, recognising we still remain in the middle of a pandemic. (A copy of the plans shared previously are at the bottom of this message). School won’t be the same as it was, but these are all steps in the right direction. We have faced, and continue to face, challenges together as a school community. I am incredibly proud of what we have achieved together and, as I have said before, we will emerge from this stronger.

Parents you have been amazing keeping your children learning over the past few months. I'm sure you'll join with me in wishing our year 6 leavers all the best as they start their secondary school careers. All that's left to say is have a fabulous summer holiday and look after each other. I cannot wait for September and I'll see everyone again on Wednesday 2nd September and our new reception starters on Thursday 3rd September.

Kindest Regards
Catherine Jones
