A PRIMARY school has thanked home-schooling parents by sending out cards ... and tea bags.

Colne Engaine Primary School is paying tribute to parents for their hard work while home-schooling during lockdown.

For months parents have been forced to keep their children out of school due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

As a result, many children have had schooling from their parents at home as well as online lessons.

As a thank you to parents for their hard work, the school sent out cards to all parents with a message of thanks in time for half term.

Included in the card were tea bags so parents can have a sit down and enjoy a cuppa.

The card said: “A heart-felt thank you for all that you are doing in your home-school ‘classroom’ and for working with us to support, guide and nurture our little people.

“Please find a little time to put your feet up and enjoy a cup of tea on us over half term.”

But parents says the school should also be recognised for its amazing work.

Mandy Page says the school has gone above and beyond the call of duty, with welfare calls, cooking videos, PE lessons and extra Zoom sessions.

She said: “The school has been phenomenal during this difficult time.

“They do welfare calls every week to check on the parents.

“Our school cook Mrs Scillitoe uploads cooking videos on YouTube for the children to do.

“Our PE teacher Mr Larkin does two Zoom live PE lessons each week.

“Every teacher will offer extra Zoom sessions if a child is finding the work tricky.

“I wanted to share how amazing the school has been and say a huge thank you to each and everyone at Colne Engaine Primary School.”
