Reflecting on the Positives
Literally overnight, back in January, many people answered the call, and the fact that we come to the end of this remote learning period in such good order is testament to the combined skill, patience and fortitude in the King's Hall community: enormous thanks are due to so many. Parents re-jigging plans and home routines as well as supporting their children’s learning whilst also managing their wider obligations, those staff who have underpinned our significant Critical Worker provision on site as well as those who have come in on a rota, the Nursery team who have adjusted and then been at school every day pretty much as usual, the teachers who expertly adapted well laid plans and have continued each week to entice the children from their lairs into an optimistic learning space full of diverse discoveries, the operations and medical teams keeping everything here as organised and Covid-secure as we can through admin, cleaning and testing, and, of course, last yet anything but least, the vitality and vivacity of the children who give us cause to do it all in the first place.
It feels as if the children have not lost significant pace with their learning. In fact, the recent Scholarship results at both 11+ and 13+ are impressive and the extraordinary volume of high quality work and submissions in all aspects of school life is quite overwhelming.
Our Year 7 and 8 children have been in for their tests and we simply cannot wait to get back together again – school, particularly in a warm-hearted and physically beautiful school as King's Hall, is so much better in school.
