Thank you so much to all at Godfrey Ermen Memorial Primary School for the very kind donations of food we collected this week. Great support for our Emmaus Salford community and Lucie's Pantry. 👏👏
Aiden Davidson (year 1), Joshua Davidson (year 3) and Isabella Davidson (nursery) made a dragon for 'Dragons in December'.
Charlie and Millie (year 3 Bell) helped to make poppies for our window to remember all the soldiers who lost their lives during the war.
We can't fully understand ur struggles but I have no doubt u will all do ur best to make this work as well as possible..

*pinched from elsewhere *

To my children’s teacher,

If you need my kid to sit on the floor while you figure out numbers, and flexible seating and seating plans- that’s ok. 👍

If my kid has to wear one pair of shoes to school all day- that’s cool- I do the same thing all day long, they can too while you figure out how to manage high traffic areas and teach the kids the importance of social distancing- Groovy!

If you need me to supply you with a bottle of wine, or vodka, or whatever every Friday so you can go home and destress and cry about your highly emotional and stressful week- I got you... name your poison. 🍷🍺🥃🍸

If you need me to search high and low for every available container for wipes so you can spend your unassigned time after school wiping down every surface in your classroom- Done! I will keep my eyes peeled!!!🧼🧽

If my kid has to wear a mask so he can sit with you and read a story- which is her favorite activity on the planet, or sit beside a friend and work in their journal or on an art project- no worries! I will make sure they understand the rules for mask wearing at school. 😷

What I won’t do:
1- Berate you on social media
2- Undermine you and your profession at every turn
3- Buy into the hysteric and irrational things I read online that have not been fact checked
4- Fear monger others


Because I know that, at the end of the day, you don’t have any control over the decisions that are made by higher ups, and you are just doing your job.

I know that you will treat my child as your own.

I know you are killing yourself putting in a ridiculous amount of hours on your own time to make your classroom a safe and welcoming place.

And I know in your heart of hearts you are doing everything in your power to make my child feel loved and successful in the school year.

You have been tasked with a seemingly insurmountable task of keeping kids safe and happy and engaged during a GLOBAL PANDEMIC- and regardless of how I personally feel about Covid and masks and shoes and seating plans and all the craziness this new school year will bring... know I have your back!

I got you, and all my teacher friends- you are valued and you are worthy... and I see you! 💕
Luke's first day in nursery and last day in year 6, he has had an amazing time at GEMS, not the last day we expected for him but we are extremely proud of how he has coped in this crazy situation.

We are so proud of two of our children for demonstrating our PRIDE values this half term. They were visiting the beach and were upset by the amount of plastic and rubbish so decided to do a beach clean up! They collected many plastic items, one was a washing up liquid bottle that dated from the 1960s, an excellent example of how plastic does not break down and pollutes the seas for a very long time. Well done boys, you are an inspiration ! 💎

After 16 years as the head teacher at Godfrey Ermen, Mrs Clancy has left today to start a new adventure… owning a bakery. Whilst she will be incredibly missed by us all, we are so excited to hear all about her new business (and taste the cakes!). We hope you will join us in thanking her for everything she has done at GEMS and wish her well in her exciting new venture! Remember Mrs Clancy, Once a GEM, always a GEM!


Arrangements for next month's World Book Day - we're doing it on Wednesday 2nd March because we've got some very special visitors...

What’s more, reading can also support children's wellbeing.
