Dear Parents and families,
Following the exciting news that all schools are to reopen fully on March 8th, I feel I must congratulate the pupils at Irthington Village School! All of the staff are so proud of the children; their enthusiasm and keenness to engage with the online lessons and complete all the work set has been amazing! To be honest, delivering daily literacy, numeracy, spelling and phonics lessons have been the highlight of our day. Seeing the pupils’ eager faces and checking in with the children each day has been just lovely, plus this has been a really effective way to deliver targeted key skills for English, Maths and Spelling.
A special mention must be made to all the parents, grandparents and other family members who have fully supported the children and staff to facilitate the home learning. This has not been an easy task by any measure, but you have all done a remarkable job! So, well done and thank you!
