Dear Parents and Carers

 

I hope that this letter finds you well.  I would like to thank you once again for your continued support at this very difficult time.  The school recognises the significant pressure that many families are facing for a variety of reasons.

 

It is not surprising if many of us have had a dip in energy this week as the effects of COVID continue to impact us. I would like to thank and reassure you that you are doing a fantastic job to support your children with their learning.  We are very grateful for this.

 

Despite what you may read in the news, the school is not closed as in the first lockdown. We are operating 6 bubbles which means staff are in school as well as providing remote learning activities. I would like to thank the staff for their ongoing hard work despite difficult circumstances. The school continues to monitor and improve our provision.

 

Please keep our staff and their family members in your prayers as several have been very unwell with COVID and their recovery is taking some time. As you may know, we have had to close some bubbles due to staffing levels and/or Covid related matters.

 

With the country in lock down and our children spending significant time online it is important that we continue to consider e-safety. Please ensure your children are supervised whilst online. 

 

The Net Aware website is a fantastic source of information covering subjects such as keeping your child safe online, online learning and advice on the safety of a huge range of apps. https://www.net-aware.org.uk/online-safety-lockdown/

 

Mass is broadcast each day at 9:00am via www.facebook.com/stpatricksbristol

The church is open seven days a week for private prayer from 10am to 4pm.

The parish office remains closed. An emergency number is available on the parish answer machine.

 

At the present time, I am unable to give any firm time scale for the full reopening of schools as we await government guidance. The school is planning ahead to when we can welcome all pupils back to school. We look forward to seeing all families as soon as safely possible.

 

Thank you again for all that you are doing for your children.  It is greatly appreciated. Please contact the office if you have any questions or concerns. 

 

Regards
