These may well be the most challenging times we have faced as individuals, as parents and as workers – whatever our role in the community may be.
For us at Birches, we have certainly faced huge challenges in recent weeks but through this adversity has come a huge sense of pride. I am incredibly proud of my team and very proud to belong to the education profession at this time and serve our community in such a way. As we come to the end of the Easter holidays, I would like to express my thanks to all the staff who have worked hard to provide childcare for our Key Worker children and ongoing support for families at home over the last few weeks, as well as those staff who are currently unable to work in school with the children but have provided valuable support to the team in very many ways. I would also like to express thanks to the wider CMAT team – our colleagues from St Nicholas First School and Codsall Middle School who have enabled us to offer such support for Key Workers across our community.
