Children at the Dr South’s Primary School in Islip have shown their support for the NHS by making and decorating a 'thank you' banner to hang on the school gates.

Schools across the country have closed, but the children of Key workers are still attending school, and this includes those whose parents work in the NHS.

Many medical front line workers live in the Oxfordshire village and even more pass by on their way to the John Radcliffe Hospital, so staff and children at the school were keen to show their appreciation, in many cases to their own parents.

To show how much they cared the children at the school painted a banner with 'Thank you NHS' written on it in big blue letters.

The banner was even decorated with bright colours, hearts and rainbows.

The 'thank you' sign has been placed on the school gates for everyone to see when they walk past.

The Islip primary school will continue to care for and teach the children of Key workers over the Easter holiday.

Headteacher Huw Morgan said: “I am in awe of the commitment of the staff to providing care and continuity to children at this difficult time and I was overwhelmed by the number of staff volunteering to come in during the holiday.”
