Just a quick note to thank all of my hardworking colleagues at Claires Court for the incredible week or so of heavy lifting all have engaged in across the 3 sites and additional sports/outdoor education venues. Nothing is normal about our new way of working, and from the most senior employee downwards, we all have to unlearn the routines embedded in our ‘professional’ muscle memory for the physical way we work in class. New rooms, new spaces, secure bubbles and the rest have to be learned anew, with every action and reaction taking twice as long, as we check again that we keep our colleagues, students and children safe. For their part, on almost all faces returning to school, nerves and joy – for a very few, unfettered joy, as if the caged animal has been released from the chains that were binding its ‘childhood’ freedoms. You can see here the Wilding brothers’ briefing to staff – it’s been an incredibly impressive 5 months and more – #WEARECLAIRESCOURT.
Please read below the Wilding brothers’ start of year newsletter to staff, providing further detail on their amazing engagement with all that we do.
