Dear Parents/Carers and Children,
We were really pleased to welcome everyone back today. We have been sent information about the new bus route being used at present.
Please look under 'Parent Information', 'School Bus' for full details.
Please do not forget to review our Risk Assessment for September which is available on our website. The Risk Assessment has been approved by the Local Authority health and safety department as well as our own Governing Body. It plans for full opening; partial opening and full closure. It is vital that online access is maintained to keep everyone informed and to provide home learning each week as well as a full timetable in the eventuality of a partial or full closure.
A reminder again of our opening and closing times for each class.
- Nursery: 8:45 – 11:45 and 12:15 – 3:15 (facilities will be available for a full day if required)
- Reception: 9:15 – 3:00
- Year 1: 9:05 – 2:50
- Year 2: 8:35 – 2:20
- Year 3: 8:45 – 2:30
- Year 4: 8:55 – 2:40
- Year 5: 8:25 – 2:10
- Year 6: 8:15 – 2:00
It is vital that these times are adhered to so that we are able to maintain ‘social distancing’ and guidelines we must follow. As you may have noted Year 6 children may walk to and from school when we receive written parental permission to do so. Please complete the form available on our website under 'Parent Information - forms' should you wish to take up this offer and print it and return it to school .
A reminder about uniform:
Each day children should wear their school polo shirt and jumper/cardigan but may wear suitable clothing/joggers and trainers to enable them to take part in P.E. No jewellery should be worn (as usual) including watches. No bags should be brought into school. Online homework will continue to reduce any possible cross-contamination. Reading books will be sent home but will be set aside upon return to school for the required time before returning to circulation within their class.
A reminder about lunches and drinks bottles:
Children who are eligible for Free School Meals or Universal Free Meals (those who are in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 classes) will receive a packed lunch prepared at school to reduce the possibility of cross-infection. Packed lunches may also be purchased at a cost of £2:05 each day All children should bring a full, named water bottle with them each day. Should you decide to provide your own packed lunch please send a healthy lunch without fizzy drinks, chocolate bars and any item which contains nuts including Nutella due to allergies of some children. Fruit snacks may also be sent for morning break.
Please continue to take care, stay safe and be kind. Thank you again for your understanding and co-operation at this most difficult time and have a lovely summer.
TIK TOK Alert
You may be aware of a current video circulating on Tik Tok regarding a male committing suicide with a firearm. This is a significant concern that young people may access this material which is extremely disturbing and demonstrates the risk of apps and material accessible online to children and young people.
