We were very honoured, proud and humbled last week to receive a letter from the Mayor's Office informing us that we have been awarded the Mayor of Preston's Pandemic City Hero Award. What an amazing recognition! This recognises the hard work and effort of all the school staff during the lockdowns and the pandemic. We have placed a high emphasis on helping our families and community with food parcels, a food bank, visits and calls to the homes of our pupils and ensuring the families were able to keep in touch with school. This is part of the school putting the Christian Vision and Values into practical action. We also made a huge effort to provide our families with work packs each week - that involved around 400 pupils collecting their pack for the week each Friday, then we followed this up with videos and input from our own staff to help the children continue with their learning. We also had a good number of our pupils in school continuing their learning with our staff too.
It has been a very tough time for lots of families but the school staff team have done their very best to make sure we kept in touch and helped our families the best we could. It is very humbling that this hard work has been recognised.
We are hoping the Mayor may be able to visit our school soon, to meet the children and staff and share what we have done and continue to do.
