4th January 2021 - 8.35pm
As I outlined to you in my message of 30.12.20 - I am sure that many of you will have just heard the Prime Minister’s broadcast. Schools do not get given any prior knowledge about announcements so we find out news about schools at the same time as parents and the general public. There are huge changes across England from tomorrow.
So unfortunately Gig Mill will now be closed to all pupils tomorrow whilst we create contingency plans for key workers and vulnerable pupils as outlined at 8pm.
This is not the start to the school year we had planned for, and like you we are very disappointed. Many of your children may already be in bed, and expecting to be in school tomorrow, and I know this news presents huge challenges for our school community.
The remote learning plans for this week are already uploaded to our website, which is a starting point for your children.
Kind regards, Mrs Hannaway & Mr Edgar
Looking for older messages?- these have been moved to the Covid-19 tab.
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.
