Friday 17th July 

It is hard to believe that we are at the end of the Summer Term. It is now more than 4 months since some of the children at Beckfoot Allerton last came to school.  

Some children of key worker families have been coming to school every day since we closed to most children in March so their families can carry on their important work.  Even in the school holidays!  We have enjoyed getting to know those children even better and have loved the smiles and laughter they have brought with them to school.  More children were able to come back to school in June when we opened to Year 1 and Year 6.  The children in school have delighted us with their energy, enthusiasm, ability to quickly understand and adapt to new routines in school and the amazing artwork they have created.

For those children who have not yet been able to come back to school, we continued to support them to learn at home and to check in with them and their family by phone each week.  It has been wonderful to see their learning journeys continue on Class Dojo and to hear how they are getting on.  I know that the time at home will not always have been easy for children or their families.  Some parents will have been juggling their own work whilst supporting home learning.  I can promise you that it is not easy!  I wonder what they have learnt whilst they have been at helping their children to do their school work?  I have certainly learnt a lot more about quadratic equations and history from my boys!

One thing which has become even more clear this year is what a strong and supportive school community we have – I really hope that you have also felt this.  I am very privileged to be Head Teacher of such an amazing school community and am very proud of the way that the children, families and staff have worked together through these strangest of times. I would like to take a moment to thank the staff team here at Beckfoot Allerton.  They have worked tirelessly over recent months the find ways to keep children and families connected with our school and to support learning at home. 

We are so looking forward to welcoming children back to school in September.  In the meantime, keep safe.  We have really missed all the Beckfoot Allerton-ers and our school is just not the same without everyone here!

Take care
