20th July 2021 - A end of term letter to all from our Chair of Governors, Mr D Edgar

20th July 2021 - A letter of thanks from Suzanne Webb MP for Stourbridge

Sunday 18th July 2021 - Message from Mrs Hannaway

What a challenging year it has been! 
 

I was really hoping that it would end in a positive way, and all the staff would be waving you and the children off on Wednesday, wishing you all a Happy Holiday. Sadly this is no longer the case.  I am writing this with a heavy heart to let you know that since Friday evening through to this morning, we have four further bubble closures due to positive tests for children. With a further 120 children and 18 additional staff isolating it is not possible to continue until the end of term as planned. 

 

Having spoken to Public Health and the Local Authority, the governors have now made the decision that school is now closed to all pupils from Nursery to Year 5, as we do not have sufficient staff to operate safely. 

School is only open to Year 6 pupils on Monday who will need to come in via the Heath Farm Road entrance - Monday 19th July will be their final day. Remote learning for all pupils is in place, please access everything through the school website and purple mash as usual. 

 

Despite all the challenges, we are so proud of the children and staff who have shown great resilience, good humour and independence throughout this pandemic. Huge thanks to our Gig Mill family too for your support – it really has kept us going. 
 

Please stay safe and look after each other over the holidays. I do hope that you all have a wonderful time making special family memories. 

 

See you all on Monday 6th September 2021.

Headteachers Welcome

As Headteacher, I hope that our website will give you some idea of what our school is like. However, I
hope you will come to visit us in person to see our wonderful school in action.

 

Gig Mill strives to provide the best possible education for your child. An education where each child feels valued, cared for and motivated to achieve their very best. We have high expectations and we aim to develop in our children a real sense of belonging along with high levels of self esteem and confidence. Whilst recognising that our pupils need to be equipped with key skills in English and Maths, we strongly feel that they also need to develop a real passion for learning and we try to enhance this learning through a whole range of experiences both within and outside the classroom environment through an exciting and vibrant curriculum.

 

We work in partnership. Governors, staff, parents and children all help to make this happen. By working together, we move forward and create a nurturing environment and opportunities for all our children to succeed.

Ours is a happy, secure, purposeful environment. Why not visit the school? We are an open, friendly school and parents and visitors are always welcomed. I look forward to meeting you.
