A Christmas Letter

Posted on December 07 2020

Dear Father Christmas,

This year myself and all the Forest Park team have been good and we have all worked hard at school. In fact, this year we have worked harder than ever before to ensure the continuity of learning for all of the children at Forest Park. You see, due to rather strange circumstances (I am sure you have heard by now) for the first time in its history the school was forced to close in spring but we managed to keep in contact with all the boys and girls via Google Classroom. 

To be able to see the children’s faces everyday really helped us through quite a difficult period. They always brighten up our days, so it was a delight to see their smiles and enthusiasm as we continued lessons online at home. Our brave key worker families went to work on the front line safe in the knowledge that their children were securely looked after in school by our dedicated staff team.

Thankfully, this closure and lockdown did not last for long and we opened the school again in June and made sure that we could welcome every child back to us again. For this to take place we needed the help of our friends at The Life Centre where the junior pupils went to learn until the end of the summer term. We even managed to allow the Year 6 children to take part in their end of year ‘Alice in Wonderland’ performance, which was, as it is always, an amazing display of talent!

A very well earned rest for staff and families over the summer was welcomed, but soon every child and family were reunited when we returned to our site on Oakfield in September, where we welcomed new joiners to the Forest Park family. A family that has grown and become stronger together through this experience of 2020.

At Forest Park, the global pandemic has made us appreciate one another even more and we are back better than ever! So in essence, all I want for Christmas this year is to continue to keep everyone safe and make our little school in Sale the best it can be and for everyone to be happy and thankful for the small things in life.

If you could please ensure that everyone is safe and well and ready to return to us in 2021 with the same mindset, then I would be most grateful. 

Your sincerely,

Nick Tucker
