Dear Parents, Carers, and Families

We started this term together with a new approach to our school building, redesign of classrooms, and changes to our approaches to learning. As the community moved into a second lockdown we came together to protect this incredible and special community. Thank you for supporting each step so that the pupils could continue to engage in meaningful and challenging learning opportunities. Their growth and development during this very complex term reflects our strength and unity as a school community. Society is facing such challenges with the pandemic. We are so proud that those challenges are tackled together for Swiss Cottage School.

We are so proud of your child’s engagement in learning and progress. We wish every family a safe and peaceful festive period. We are looking forward to the light that will shine bright in 2021.

Warmest wishes,

Vijita Patel
