Message From CEO – 12 April 2020
In every one of the Bath and Wells Multi Academy Trust schools, you have all embraced and supported your communities, gone above and beyond to care for the children of key workers and those that need extra support. You have distributed food parcels, provided lunches, delivered meals to children at their home, provided support activities for children and parents working at home and enabled uplifting experiences for all those children attending school. You are an invaluable support network for the communities you serve and the importance of your work has never been more needed or evident.
The pupils at Churchfield Church School, like many across the Trust, have been painting Rainbows of Hope. With the sun shining brightly, they were able to enjoy painting outside. They even sent a message to Boris!
Staff and pupils at Churchfield have also been carrying out investigations, learning outdoors wherever possible, creating wild tree artwork using natural materials found around the school site. They also reinvented their favourite PE and games activities so that they reflected this time of social distancing. On Tuesday, over 100 food parcels were picked up by or delivered to families within the school community.
A Kingshill Church School this week some wonderful learning experiences took place both in school and at home. In school pupils played in the forest and created some wonderful artwork outdoors.
At home, Bora worked outside and had great fun baking a cake.
Archie has been busy helping outside, cleaning windows, pressure washing the drive and he even helped paint the fence.
Erin and Rohan enjoyed learning new woodworking skills at home.
Sophie had lots of fun baking cakes, going on a bike ride and making her own book cover for the Gruffalo.
At St John the Evangelist Church School lots of children have been getting creative, constructing some amazing structures with Lego.
At St Saviour’s Church Schools dozens of food parcels have been given to families and members of their community this week.
At St Andrew’s Church School in Bath children have created beautiful Easter gardens.
Your actions exemplify the care and dedication embedded in the education profession. You are ensuring that our Trust of schools are rooted in each community, where you are selflessly Serving, Celebrating and providing Hope. You are transforming sadness and difficulty into something quite wonderful and uplifting – a truly uplifting celebration of Hope on this Easter Day.
Thank you everyone for all you have done and continue to do for pupils, families and communities across our Trust. Please take some time to relax as well as you can over the Easter period.
