Is it still appropriate to say Happy New Year given when I am sending this email and of course what is happening in the world and our own lives?

Ordinarily I would be sending you the January issue of our SMSC Newsletter but appreciate and completely understand that now is not the time. As a teacher myself I am immersed in remote learning with my students and that is the priority for them and me.  SMSC is naturally part of it and so not forgotten about but has a little less prominence now.

My intention is to start sending our SMSC newsletter out when the time is right – which isn’t now. The back copies are still available and have questions which could be used to pose to your students during this time.  Free resources are also available on my course platform and I am adding to them regularly. I am still here to support you so please get in touch if there is anything you need or want to ask.

Sending best wishes to you all.




Hi Hayley, thank you for your help.  It would be great if your give me any suggestions for the the 3 ‘I’ statements.  I am not 100% sure where to start if I am honest!
