As schools in Leeds West break up for the summer holidays, I wanted to pay tribute to the hardworking staff and wish them a well deserved break – and all the parents who have been home schooling too.
Despite some challenges, I’ve been able to keep in touch with school leaders via email, Zoom round tables and I have even made a couple of socially distanced visits.
Year 6 children have kept me on my toes too! I recently held the very first Children’s Question Time. This was an inspiring end to what has been a difficult term for many children and adults alike. I look forward to visiting schools in person again as soon as the guidelines allow.
Enjoy your break – you’ve earned it.
