23rd February 2021 Horsley & Mapperley Newsletter

Dear Horsley & Mapperley families,
The Prime Minister announced last night that all primary school children will return to school on
Monday March 8th 2021. I am very pleased that we are able to return all of our children to school, to
allow them to spend time with their friends and teachers and to engage with rhythms and routines of
school life once more. For some of you this will come as an enormous relief, although there will also be
mixed feelings, with some anxieties about this too. This is totally understandable and, as always the
staff and I will do what we can to ensure that all your concerns are answered, so that you can send
your children back to school confidently. As our school communities begin to come together under one
roof once again, each child’s health and well-being will be of paramount importance to us and will be at
the centre of what we do. Our children need to feel that they belong again and to re-engage with school
and with each other.
