CEO blog - Working together
This week, one of our schools welcomed back its bubble of pupils and staff at the end of the self-isolation period. This experience has been a good test of our procedures and communication channels and I am pleased to report that our systems have proved to be robust and effective.
During this challenging time, we are constantly adapting and exploring new ways to reach out to our community. This term, we are introducing virtual open days, alongside our usual open days, for our new families and online parents’ evenings to give parents and carers the opportunity to meet their child’s teacher in the way that suits them best. I am proud to be working with such a creative and innovative staff team!
The prime minister’s message this week has confirmed that COVID-19 has not gone away. We all need to continue our efforts to protect our pupils, staff and families. I would like to thank staff, parents and carers for supporting and reinforcing our key messages at school and at home. Your support is vital and much appreciated. By continuing to work together, we continue to protect the safety of our Rivers family.
Be kind to yourself and one another,
