Dear Parents and Carers
Let me begin by wishing all our Muslim families Eid Mubarak and all the best for your celebrations.
On Monday the 17th May it will no longer be a requirement to wear facemasks when out doors on the school premises. However, people are advised to wear facemasks if they feel at risk. Anyone who enters the school building will still need a facemask on. Social distancing must continue to be followed.
We will also see our wonderful volunteers return to support in school. Please contact your teacher ( or they will contact you). All volunteers will only work with their child’s “Bubble” and by default, they are already a part of the class bubbles. All school safety procedures will be followed and staff will go over these with the volunteers.
Much of the government guidance for schools has remained the same and so we soldier on with our separateness. Educational visits and residential visits are now permitted. We will keep you updated when guidance changes.
We are seeing a number of school improvements now that contractors are able to move more freely. The playground markings are part of a larger initiative linked to health and well-being and getting children to move more. Next week we have the “Walk to School Week” and we would encourage all families to enter into the spirit of “moving more “.
The library is being improved along with an initiative to engage children in more reading. We had a family kindly donate a large sum of money that has been directed towards this. At the same time we have invested in 30 new laptops and had a delivery of laptops from the government. Our IT potential is now at its best. The forest that has been planted is the beginning of our Forest School Programme being delivered on site. This will enable greater provision of activities for all children and we are currently bidding for funding through the National Lottery.
Please ensure your children arrive on time for the start of their class lessons. If your child is 5 minutes late every day then they miss 25 minutes of learning every week.
I have attached another information document on internet safety.
Have a great weekend
