Video thanks for primary school staff

Staff at a Swansea primary school have an extra spring in their step and some even shed a tear after pupils and parents sent them a video message thanking them for their support during lockdown.

Craigfelen Children

Since Craigfelen School closed in March staff have been going the extra mile to keep in touch with pupils and make sure they have school work to.

There has also been lots of fun as well with events organised remotely including a Craigfelen's Got Talent competition which was judged by Swansea icon Kevin Johns.

To say thank-you a video featuring many pupils from the school has appeared on Youtube.

Craigfelen headteacher Alison Williams said: "I think the parents are most grateful for the personal contact they have been having with their teachers.

"Each pupil has a personal learning programme either online or, if digitally excluded, delivered to the door.

"We have sent lots of rewards in the post and all pupils have received personal letters and cards from their teachers. Regular calls and texts checking on wellbeing, achievement assemblies, storytelling online, dance parties and quiz nights for the families have all helped keep everyone positive and happy."

Staff have also been involved in helping to deliver food bags for children who have free school meals.

Mrs Williams added: "The staff have been so touched by the parents efforts to get the video together, there were lots of tears at the weekend.

"I think this has changed the way we will work together with our families ​in the future. They are so grateful for the way staff have helped get everyone though this  difficult time."
