Have a Happy Weekend... A message from the Head Teacher
Dear Parents/Carers and Families,
As the Head Teacher of Red Kite Special Academy I wants to share my thoughts with you at this
challenging time. I love my job, our children, staff and families and I know that as parents you always
want to do the best for your children.
So do what’s best for your child at this awful time! Go with your instinct to be Mummy’s, Daddy’s and
Carer’s. ONLY do home learning if your child wants to and is happy to engage. Give them, and
yourselves, space and time.
Play games, do Joe Wicks PE, take photos and keep an album and create memories; have a look at
what our school has sent out - give it a go if everyone wants to.
Read together and share books and stories, make up games, play board games and do silly role play.
Bake cakes and garden, do mini-make overs or wash the car – these are all learning opportunities so
do not stress that you aren’t teaching!
Our Teachers are naturally doing their job, getting information out to the children in their class to
help them to learn. But in real life, our teachers adapt, change, abandon, alter their plans about 1000
times a day. THAT is their skill. Don’t expect to do that in less than a week with your wonderful
children who see you as a parent not teacher.
Many, many children have gaps in learning over their school career and, just like us in adult life, they
find their way through.
Be kind. Be calm. Have fun and try to be as happy as you can with your families. We promise we will
carry on the teaching and learning when things get back to normal.
Take care all, have a restful, happy and safe weekend! Stay home and save lives.
