Dear Parents & Guardians,


It is so strange to think today is the end of term; I am not sure it can be without singing Spring Chicken!  I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your support with home learning.  The feedback is wonderful and the children seem to be enjoying themselves and their learning.  As I have said previously, it is vital that we prioritise our wellbeing in the current situation.  Staff have put some Easter activities on the class pages of the website which we hope the children will enjoy and may provide a focus for the children.  I will be adding links to support with mental health and e-safety which you may wish to read or at least know they are there if you need them.


Mrs Craddock has been in touch with the suggestion of producing the Finch magazine and emailing it out to all families.  This is again another lovely way to connect the children and keep them busy.  If you have anything you think would be good to add to a magazine or if you write an article or send a photo, please email it to: with the subject of Magazine.  


I want to finish by thanking our key worker families for all they are doing; we are pleased to be able to support them.  The teaching staff, as key workers themselves, are all incredible and I cannot thank them enough for the support they are showing the children, each other and me.  We will remain open over the Easter holiday but there will be no learning set, the email address will only be monitored by myself on a daily basis and I will only respond to urgent messages.  I wish all staff a restful time with their families.


We are living through such a frightening time and hope you all keep safe and in good health.

Happy Easter

Jacquie Vanstone
