Thank you!

I received a lovely gift at school today thank you so much. It’s incredibly generous of you all and I’m very touched.

What a year?! I hope you know how wonderful I think your children are. They have coped so well in truly exceptional circumstances and we are so proud of them.

As a parent myself I do truly know how challenging the last few months have been for you all. Trying to juggle work and home schooling has been incredibly difficult but you are all fantastic and you deserve just as much praise as the children do. Well done to you all and thank you for doing your best to help your children navigate this crazy time.

I hope you can all get some sort of rest and break over the next few weeks. We all need to digest what has happened!

All the very best to you all,

Jo
