After such an unsettled end of year in July, it has been especially good to see everyone back at school together this week. The children have settled in well, following new arrangements carefully, returning to old friendships and being open to forming new ones. We came together in groups for face to face worship sessions in the hall on Wednesday, something we have not done since last March. It was so special to be back together in this way and hearing the children share their ideas with each other thoughtfully and confidently.
A special welcome to all of our new children and staff who have joined the school, and to those children who will be joining us in our early years classes next week. You will notice the playground, especially at the end of the day and in the early years area, being a little busier next week as our new pupils and families settle into life at St. Bede.
