Today is the last day of a very strange Spring term, and not one that many of us will wish to repeat. Our Home Learning will be ending today, and fingers crossed we won’t see it returning. I will be producing an Easter Activity pack, which will be available from the shop early next week. This will be a purely optional activity pack, aimed to try and reduce boredom.
Manx Sport and Recreation are running some Easter Activities, open to everybody, and details of these are attached.
Many children have been engaging in our daily Teams meetings, and it is fair to say that all of us have been working online more than ever. Whilst technology brings many befits with it, there are also a few things we need to watch out for. E-safety is an ever present issue, and one which we talk to the children about on a regular basis. With this in mind I have attached an e-safety newsletter which I have produced in partnership with the Thinkuknow website. In addition the Safer Schools organisation are holding a free online webinar looking specifically at how to use Roblox and TikTok safely.

At the moment we don’t yet know when our school will re-open, any decisions around that will be led by Public Health, and based on how the Coronavirus situation looks closer to the time. I'm sure we will hear about that during the holiday so, as ever, stay tuned to local news, and of course I will be sure to be in touch once the situation becomes clearer.
Last week I e-mailed you all to let you know that your child’s School report was available via E-mail if you would like a copy. If you have not yet asked for a copy, please do get in touch, via e-mail, and I will send it out to you. The address to use is Jurbyheadteacher@sch.im. Please don’t reply directly to this e-mail as the address does not accept incoming messages.
Finally on behalf of all the staff at Jury Community school I would like to wish you a very happy and safe Easter.
