At the end of the school year, I always write to our schools to look back at what has gone well and to celebrate your successes. Since the beginning of the pandemic, the hard work of our headteachers, school staff and pupils has made me very proud. You, your parents and carers, and your teachers have been involved in teaching and learning from home, using technology in ways that are new to many of us. Some of you have also attended school so that your parents
and carers were able to continue their work in important services, such as the NHS.
Many of you will know that your schools are working hard to get ready to welcome you back safely in September.
For those of you who have not been in to school before the summer holidays, you will notice in September that there will be some differences to what you are used to. These changes are
there for everybody’s safety. For example:
Your school will explain any changes to you and your parents and carers before your first day back. Once again, I’d like to thank you all. I hope you have a safe and happy summer and look forward to welcoming you back in September.
