Happy February to everyone and I hope that in the next few weeks we will see everything return to normality, or at least a normality where we are all free, whilst learning to live with the virus around us. I can honestly say that the past two years have been the most challenging for us as a school and I know for you too as parents and carers and I just wanted to thank you all so much for your support during the darkest of times. Your children are what we come to school for and they have ensured there has always been something good in every day at Loxdale.
You may have noticed lots of changes to our outdoor area, or our 'Anne Bowles Exploration Zone' as we are calling it. We hope it will be a fitting tribute to Anne and her family as a reminder of what she meant to us all. If only we could just get those last few 'snags' completed, we will be able to open it up to our children. Santa loved using the Pirate Ship and I am sure the children will too! On Thursday, we will be planting a 'Tiny Forest' on our site and this will be a fantastic legacy for the children of our school, watching the trees grow into a lovely wooded area to be enjoyed by generations to come.
Please have a look at the Governors area on our website as some of you told us you were unsure of the Governors and their role. Hopefully your questions will be answered on there, but please do not hesitate to contact me at school if you would like to find out more.
In the meantime, we look forward to you attending our parents' evening on 17th February and we hope that this will be the last one remotely. We are looking towards a hybrid approach for next year, where parents/ carers can select whichever system suits them better.
