There’s a ‘deep’ blog coming with a title I’ve been considering for a little while… I’d scoped it for this week but forgotten (how?) that Friday, which is today, is the deadline for most of our centre assessment grades to be submitted to exam boards so I’ve spent a significant amount of time with our… Read More Week 34…or week 12 of lockdown…A short summary
I decided as I was writing last week’s post that this week would be a ‘week in the life of’ diary style to give you a genuine, day by day insight into my world as it currently unfolds. The only way to write it I thought would be to do each entry at the end… Read More Week 30 : Week 7 of Lockdown. ‘May the 4th be with you…’ A week in the life of…
It’s been a strange week this week. Yes the now usual Covid-19 roller coaster but perhaps greater extremes than I’ve felt for a few weeks now. Really feeling like I’m nailing this working from home lark, overseeing key worker school in school for a few days, home learning routines with the #crazypair one day to… Read More Week 29 – ‘You are just as worthy of the love and time that you so freely give out to others’.
I wrote a long blog last week about my lockdown thoughts, reflections and experiences to date so this week’s is much shorter! I have said before that writing the weekly blog is cathartic and it certainly has felt this week, having hit publish on the fairly personal and exceedingly honest reflections of my lockdown experiences… Read More Week 28 – ‘If music be the food of love, play on.’ William Shakespeare.
It’s the start of the Summer Term 2020! And what an odd start it is too… I’m in school along with just our KWS pupils and staff ensuring that the work of our critical key workers can continue…. I wrote this last week then family life took over and I forgot to post it… So…It’s… Read More Lock Down 2020 Week 4. Here’s some things I’ve realised…
It has been another completely and utterly surreal week as I am sure it has been for everyone. Adjusting to a new normal that is enforced upon us…albeit it absolutely for our own good but with little warning or time to plan, adapt in anticipation or adjust. Certainly for me as far as leading a… Read More Week 27: A blog about being grateful.
It’s interesting to try to work out where to and exactly how to start a blog when you’ve just had the most surreal 2 weeks of your entire professional career….culminating in the fact that I now find myself CEO of Key Worker School (Miss Noble is the Headteacher…) and Headteacher of Cams Hill Online Home… Read More Week 26 -‘The expected is what keeps us steady. It’s the unexpected that changes our lives forever.’ Shonda Rhimes
To be honest, this is the week that has been. I’ve had no PA (old one sadly left with notice etc, new one starts on Monday) and I’ve spent so much time this week on our #coronaclosureactionplan that there really hasn’t been time for a blog. But here’s a few reflections and a few pictures… Read More Week 24 – ‘Individual commitment to a group effort; that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilisation work.’ Vince Lombardi
Those of you whom are regular blog readers will know I love mornings… It’s the time when I am at (I believe) my most efficient and effective; where I find it so very easy to see positivity and optimism in everything and when the sun rises it is nothing short of beautiful. I love it! […]
It’s been a tough day. Having chosen a quote for the blog from Charlie Mackesy for the past few weeks…quotes that are so special, so beautiful and so very meaningful and pertinent at what has been a really tough period of time for us all, today I’ve chosen one from a pupil here at Cams… Read More Week 22 – ‘Be More Joe’ (Year 11 pupil Cams Hill School)
