Head’s Blog: Back to Better

As we approach the end of the third week back after the summer break, it is difficult to comprehend that the boys have had a somewhat challenging experience over the last six months. Despite the school looking a little different than normal, we are so happy to have the boys back at school, socialising with their friends and engaged in their lessons.  

We have launched straight into the year and are pleased to be hitting the ground running with various projects throughout the school, including the launch of ‘Our Space’. The wellbeing of each and every Elmhurst boy is of the utmost importance as they continue to thrive in an environment which is clearly different to the way things were. ‘Our Space’ is the newest room in our school, where boys can spend time reflecting on their experiences with the support of our dedicated teaching staff. Along with form time periods and regular PSHE lessons, our pupils have the ability to reflect on recent events and have their voices heard, at a time when this is so important.

We are building on the lessons that we have learnt during the lockdown period and implementing these into our daily school life to try to make things as easy as possible for you, our parents. For example, our early years team facilitated an excellent Phonics Workshop for both parents and pupils last night through Google Hangout. We look forward to exploring a variety of different ways of delivering school workshops and events in the future so any feedback about how we can use these platforms would be greatly appreciated.

Finally, I would like to thank all of our parents for their continued support. The bond born out of the lockdown period shows how strong the Elmhurst community is. I am so pleased that we are back to hearing the chatter in the classrooms and the laughter in the playground once again!
