To those families of Ukrainian and Russian heritage in our school community,
I want you to know that the staff of Manford Primary School are all thinking of you and your families. You are valued part of our community and we wish to offer our support at this extremely challenging time. This must be a very difficult day for you all and we are very aware that the coming days could be difficult for your children too as they come to terms with what is happening.
We are very aware that your children may have particular emotional needs linked to the situation in Ukraine. All teachers are keeping a particular eye out for your children today and as things develop.
Please do contact the school if your child would benefit from some additional time to talk in school about anything general, or specific, linked to the current situation as we have trained staff who can work with them. Please also let class teachers know if there is any particular upset for your child that they should be aware of at any point.
Let us all hope that peace is resumed quickly.
