Pupils at West Yorkshire academy produce video to ease coronavirus fears
Ahead of pupils returning to school in September, key worker pupils from West Yorkshire academy Thornhill Junior and Infant School have produced a short video for their fellow classmates explaining what measures have been introduced to ensure their safety.
Taking the pupils and parents on a journey of what a new school day will look like, the video explains how the school layout has changed, where washing and hand sanitiser facilities will be made available and the requirements that will be expected from all children.
Incorporating a catchy song written by pupils and staff which stresses the sentiment of ‘working together as one community’, the five-minute clip has been produced to alleviate any worries that pupils may have about returning to school.
Michael Rowland, Headteacher of the school said: “The last few months has shown the resilience of our community at Thornhill J & I and our willingness to adapt and move forward.
“I’m very much looking forward to seeing our pupils return in September and I hope that the pupils who have remained in school have shown that pupil safety is of the highest importance to us and that we will be supporting each child in the transition back to the classroom.”
