From March 23rd, when schooling as they knew it changed overnight, the children have achieved some amazing things and shown incredible reliance in a time of uncertainty.

They opened to Key Worker children during the initial lockdown period and although they had children worried about their own families, their thoughtfulness and kindness showed no boundaries.

Each week the children thought of innovative ways to show our local community that they care for them and were thinking about them. This has continued beyond lockdown and into the wider re-opening of the school.

The children created videos to send as Thank You messages to parents and key workers, they made gifts to remind the elderly and hardworking NHS staff that we were thinking of them, and they also made gifts that were placed in local shops to remind our community that they were in out thoughts.

The children have made a firm links with our local care home and have invited our lovely neighbours to become Pen Pals, so they can continue to keep them company.

As a school, they have celebrated their acts of kindness on social media platforms but we feel that their kindness needs to be spread! Well done to you all!

Miss Hydes, head teacher said:  “We are proud to work with such wonderful children and families; Boston has a bright future!”

Mrs Carr, Deputy Head Teacher said: “The pupils here at Staniland Academy School have made us so proud, their kindness and caring attitude to others, even when they have been scared and unsure too, has really been astonishing.”
