A Message from the Head Teacher...
It is with a heavy heart that I write this, even though I know we will continue to be in touch weekly through our weekly newsletter, I have been directed to close the doors and gates to our fantastic school community: pupils, parents, carers, staff and Governors.
As I said to Year 6 pupils on Friday, we will meet again! I have hope (however disillusioned it may be) that we might be back before the end of the academic year however if we don’t manage that we will endeavour to make up for it in so many ways when we do open up again.
I have been so very impressed and not at all surprised at our Headcorn School Community’s calm, positive, supportive and encouraging ‘can do’ attitude and approach in the face of these difficult times. Saying thank you to our school staff does not seem enough but I hope you will join me in letting them know that we are so thankful that they have continued to work successfully, collaboratively and with such amazing capacity, showing determination, resilience, initiative and tenacity all the while encouraging, championing and supporting each other and our parents, carers and children. We have an EXCEPTIONAL school team!
I thank you all also for your understanding, support and encouragement.
Thank you to those individuals that have shared kind words on the gates, sent in cards, written emails, sent in boxes of chocolates, even shared a knowing smile, please know that these things have bolstered us and kept us pressing forwards when our staff team have been frustrated, anxious and even on the verge of tears as we are all heart-broken at this closure and separation as well.
Cross Country Running @ Greenfields Community School...
Congratulations to all the children who represented Headcorn at the recent Cross Country event at Greenfields Community School at the end of Term 3.
Pupils from Years 2,3,4,5 & 6 took part in a very muddy and wet event, but all thoroughly enjoyed their experience with many setting personal bests, and some children finishing in the top three positions during their race.
