Dear Parents/Carers

Thank you for all of your support this week and for keeping in touch with the school, especially with the lovely photographs you have been sharing. We appreciate that things are very different for all of the children at the moment and seeing all of the lovely smiles is testament to the fantastic job you are all doing.

As we move into a new week on Monday we have made some changes to the home learning packs we’re sending out through Showbie in order for us to streamline, be more consistent across the school and enable efficient management by staff. There will be suggested timetables for the week but as I said in my last letter, these are suggestions only and not an expectation. Do what works best for your children and family.

Showbie is a professional online school portal, which allows children to access work or assignments from home, sent from their teacher safely and securely. Each year group has their own Showbie account and have been given a specific code for children to join with.

Your child should use Showbie to access work at home which they can view on a laptop, phone or electronic device which has been connected to the internet.

For more information please use the link below which can help pupils and parents access Showbie:-

Should you still experience problems with using Showbie or any other online platforms please do not phone the school, it is more effective for you to EMAIL– heronsgate@mket.org.uk enabling us to pass your query to the appropriate person and reply to you.

I hope it goes without saying that should any of you require any support or assistance of any other nature please don’t hesitate to contact the school. You may also be pleased to know that whilst the school is operating on a smaller scale our contract cleaners are deep cleaning all areas.

Thank you once again for your patience, support and contributions this week. I wish you all a very good weekend and hope you stay fit, healthy and happy.

Kind regards

Jane Edwards

Headteacher
