New Term Update

Dear Parents

 

We hope that you and your families have managed to enjoy the lovely sunshine during the Easter holidays, despite the lockdown, and that you are staying safe and well.

 

Although we are returning to school on Monday 20th April for the summer term, coronavirus will unfortunately continue to keep schools closed, for all but the children of key workers, with the majority of children following a home learning plan for the foreseeable future. All learning will be sent out on Monday 20th via email and will also be available on the school website, on children’s class pages. All online activities, such as PurpleMash and MyMaths, will also become available at this time. We will continue to post engaging activities on the school Facebook page. Please keep sending us your lovely photos of the activities your children have been engaging in.

 

It is a good idea to work out a school learning routine with your children so that they have a timetable to follow. Children work best when following a regular routine. Remember to factor breaks, exercise and play into your timetable. Set some small, achievable goals to keep it fun and use lots of praise and encouragement.

 

Free school meals are available to children who are part of our pupil premium/free school meals list. Please note that this does not include universal free school meals, which are allocated on the basis of being a part of EYFS or KS1. This is for low-income families and will be delivered on Mondays for the week ahead. Please see the government criteria below:

 

Low-income families whose children are eligible for free school meals will be offered  food or meals to make sure they continue receiving this support, even if they are no longer attending school due to the coronavirus outbreak.

 

If you believe you are eligible for free school meals, please contact admin@churchendacademy.com

 

Do not hesitate to get in contact with us if you have any problems. The year group emails will be active again, between 10am and 12pm, from Monday for any queries you may have.

 

 

 

Keep well. Look after your families.
