Bishops Rachel and Robert have written to all school staff.
Text of the letter:
24 March 2020
To Headteachers, Teachers and School Support Staff.
We wanted to say a huge thank you for all you are doing in this time of national emergency.
You are yourselves key workers as you care for the children of other key workers serving our country and saving lives. While doing this you will each, we know, also be dealing with the way in which the current ‘lockdown’ and the spread of COVID 19 is impacting your own life and the lives of those closest to you. This is a heavy burden you bear, and we thank you for it.
In the midst of this vitally important work please remember to look after yourself, not least to care for your own mental health and wellbeing and please above all else, with our thanks, be assured of our concern and our prayers for you.
With every blessing
