Governors Welcome

Message from Mrs Mathers, Chair of Governors: April 2021

Message from Mrs Mathers, the Chair of Governors, Spring term 2021


Time flies and we are already seeing signs of spring: bulbs bursting through the soil, days becoming longer, buds appearing on twigs that seemed lifeless and very bare through the months of winter.

For so many of our families, it’s been a very long and worrying winter - our thoughts go out to all of our families who have experienced sadness and loss through this pandemic.

Sometimes, we just do not know what to say when troubled times come. Sometimes we find comfort from words that others have said.


The artist, Charlie Mackesy, has produced a beautiful book of charming illustrations – “The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse.” Maybe his words can bring us some comfort through our difficult times.                                                           

As we look ahead into the rest of this year, so much remains uncertain and unpredictable. We have been so proud of the way our school community has supported each other and found strength in the midst of so much uncertainty.


We look forward to welcoming all of the children back to school- and seeing all of our families- as soon as it is safe to do so. In the meantime, our Remote Learning Offer is available to all children and we thank our families for all of your kind and invaluable support.    


Our very best wishes to all of our school community.


From, Mrs Mathers on behalf of the Windhill Governing Body.
