Dear Parents and Carers,
On behalf of all the Governors I wanted to welcome you and your children back to Eastcroft Park following the most recent lockdown. Hopefully we can all move forward positively as we follow the roadmap out of the pandemic.
We have had fantastic attendance this week – so well done with all those daily preparations for school, getting back into the swing of things.
As you will be aware the most recent lockdown brought a number of changes to the way the school was working. The school provided an extended number of places to families of key workers and vulnerable children with over 20% of the Eastcroft Park population attending each day. In addition there was a greater level of sophistication to the remote learning offer. Staff worked tirelessly to provide imaginative education opportunities via a range of methods including traditional paper packs, learning via online platforms, live lessons, support with technical advice and the loan of IT equipment. School based provision and the remote learning offer have been a great success but could not have worked without your support. So thankyou and well done to staff, children, parents and carers – for creating a learning team to support all the children during lockdown.
As we continue our journey out of lockdown safe organisation of the school is key. I look forward to seeing many of you at the school gates at the beginning and end of the school day. Can I remind you to continue to maintain social distancing and wear a mask when at the gate or on the school playground.
Steve Dixon - Chair of Governors – on behalf of Eastcroft Park Governing Body
