14th January 2021 Newsletter

Dear Horsley & Mapperley families,
I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a happy new year- it really hasn’t been the start to
the year or term that any of us were hoping for. I hope that you are keeping well and coping with the
impact of another national lockdown. I am very grateful for the lovely comments and support that so
many of you have shared. The next few months are likely to present a real challenge to us all and it is
vital that we give support to each other and work together. With putting together our ‘in school’ and ‘at
home’ plans so quickly, it has meant that there are things that we will need to alter to ensure that they
work as well as they can for everyone. We are looking to introduce some virtual contact with children at
home, which will be through Microsoft Teams, which is being set up for all children by our IT providers.
More information about this will follow next week.
