A big welcome to Harrington Junior School - even if this is under such unusual and difficult circumstances. I am so sorry that we will not get the chance to meet face to face as would be the usual procedure for new parents. Despite this, every effort will be made to include and inform parents and children over the next four weeks as we can now turn to focus on the transfer of Year 2 into Year 3.
Even though the progress regarding the premises feels slow, there are plans are in place to have all pupils on site for September. I feel very upset for the Year 2 children who will not be able to visit and have been missing school for so long. We will help pupils by having a very gradual introduction to life at junior school and we will need to spend some time completing some of the objectives from Year 2 that they have missed.
I intend to place an introductory presentation to parents on the Harrington website in the next week – this is a shortened version of what I would have presented to parents in our meeting.
Please keep checking back on our website for updates.
