It has been an extraordinary Autumn term like no other...

It has been an extraordinary Autumn term like no other and, as we are about to embark on our holidays,  we can all be very proud of how the whole school community has adapted to the restrictions and changes imposed on us,  from PTA fundraising to online learning and performances, to name but a few. We have all learned new skills and sometimes this has required a certain amount of courage to step outside our comfort zones, as we have been on both sides of a camera!


The Nativities and Carol Service have been produced as online versions this year. I’d like to thank everyone who has been involved  in their production (which has even included family members for some aspects). Social distancing, following rules of limited groups singing inside, battling wind and rain for outside recording, coping with logistics of not sharing props or costumes, plans having to change suddenly due to self-isolation expectations... the list of challenges goes on, even before the matter of joining scenes together ready for publishing! The staff have been creative, resourceful, patient and innovative and I’d  like to thank each and every one of them. 'Bravo bravissimo,' as we sing in celebration service!


We will be putting the final version of the carol service and nativities on an unlisted secure YouTube school channel which is only accessible via the link you will be given. It cannot be found via a search. We ask that you enjoy these school events within your families and please do not put the link on social media. The children were magnificent and I know you are going to be delighted with their efforts!

Although it has been a difficult year, 2020 has perhaps shown us all how important it is not to take things for granted in so many different aspects of our home and school lives. It has helped us to appreciate what is important and when things begin to return to normal, I hope we will continue to recognise what is truly valuable. We have produced a booklet Wrington Primary Booklet of Learning Dec 2020 which has been delivered to people in our community who may be on their own, or who may value some connection with the school over this Christmas period. It reflects some of the great learning including photographs, art work, poetry which has been going on in the school since March. 

Thank you very much for all your kind messages and gifts. On behalf on everyone at Wrington Church of England Primary School, I should like to wish you all a very happy and peaceful Christmas. Let's hope for a less complex 2021!
