On Friday 21st March we closed our doors to the vast majority of children and families for the foreseeable future, but please know that we are filled with sadness and will be thinking of you and missing you all. We now ask, that you continue to look after our wonderful, resilient, creative, beautiful children so that they can be returned to us as soon as possible.

Take care.

Prayers

We say prayers with our children each day. This is something they are used to and at this worrying time it might offer some children comfort.

A prayer remembering God is with us

Lord God, you are always with me.
You are with me in the day and in the night.
You are with me when I’m happy and when I’m sad.
You are with me when I’m healthy and when I am ill.
You are with me when I am peaceful and when I am worried.
Today I am feeling (name how you are feeling) because (reasons you are feeling this way).
Help me to remember that you love me and are with me in everything today.
Amen
