From the Desk of the Executive Headteacher

S Pywell
Update: 18th March 2020

“”May you live in interesting times “” is a well know expression that can be interpreted in many ways.

For some it is about how we live during times of challenge and uncertainty. 

All of us are facing a period that worries, frightens or even scares us but we are not alone if we are together.

How we behave and respond to this challenge and time of uncertainty defines us as individuals. What qualities can we show to others and what qualities will people see in us, we need to be resilient, determined, resourceful, creative, caring, compassionate and thoughtful.

We need to be the role models for our children. Our children will remember how we behave when times are hard.

We are ordinary people; nurses, teachers, assistants, support staff, carers, shop workers, electricians, refuse collectors, engineers, builders, plumbers, cleaners, being extra ordinary in extraordinary times.  

When this is all over, as it will be, we will be different but will we have made a difference to those around us? Will we have become better people and will we have made people around us better individuals?

We are extra ordinary people living in extraordinary times.

Best wishes, Stuart Pywell
