I hope this finds you and your family well. It’s just day 3 of our new ‘normal’ and for many of us it feels far from normal. We have however been encouraged by so many positive messages from members of our school community, the engagement of the children attending the emergency key worker childcare and hearing of exceptional home learning from our children in school. It has really put a smile on the faces of the staff in school. Thank you.
I am sure you will join me in thanking the whole Heath Mount Staff team for the efforts made to ensure this unprecedented experience for us all has been handled with upmost professionalism. Each and every member of the team has pulled together and are committed, as ever, to ensuring your child/ren are getting the best deal possible in these unusual circumstances.
We are sharing examples of positive learning in school on our Twitter feeds over the coming days. Please make sure you follow us at @Heathmount.
The class teachers will be ringing each of our families next week to ensure you are well. These phone calls will be brief as each teacher has a number of calls to make. If you are in need of help in anyway let them know and we will do our best to support you.
Yesterday’s briefing came from Matt Hancock Secretary of State for Health and Social Care who thanked NHS staff along with those in social care. He explained that retired nurses and doctors are returning to work along with Medical and Nursing students who will shortly qualify. A call for 250,000 volunteers to support the work of the NHS was also announced, with more details promised in the coming days.

As we all try and adjust to this temporary way of life, please do remember to look after yourselves, your family members, your friends and neighbours- a quick call or message to check in on them could make a big difference.
