‚ÄčIt took a parent on P2 to let me know that today was "National Teachers' Day" - I guess that by not being on Facebook, I miss things like this.

However, I want to add here now how grateful I am to my staff for all they have done so far this academic year. The mood in and around school is fantastic and whenever I see them, the children are looking keen and settled. We are all aware of how important it is for children to be in school and we are doing all we can to keep it this way - this afternoon, as I had to cover a class for an hour, I explained how I would have to keep my distance from the children as I was entering their 'Bubble'; it was strange to not be able to go to them to help once I'd given my input but I found a way which appeared to work.
