Dear Parents, Pupils and Carers,
We are now in the second week of the new academic year and the pupils have settled in well to the school routine.
Last week, we updated you on the revised start and end of day procedures. I would like to reiterate that everything we have put in place is to keep the whole school community safe. We thank you for your continued patience in navigating the new entrances and continuing to observe social distancing rules. Please make sure pupils arrive to school on time and are picked up promptly at the end of the day as this will avoid congestion.
All parents are reminded that pupils must not attend school if they have any of the Covid-19 symptoms. Parents should call 111 in the first instance for advice and relay that advice to the school as soon as possible. Please refer to the Covid flowchart for reference.
By now, you should have received the year group newsletters via email, which provides information about the curriculum as well as guidance regarding the school day and homework. Please note that pupils will be expected to complete homework through the online platforms. All homework will be posted on Class Dojo for pupils in the Early Years, and on Seesaw for pupils in Years 1-6. If there are issues regarding homework, please notify the class teacher. For further information, visit the school website where you will be able to view curriculum letters for your child’s year group.
At this current time, staff will not be available for face-to-face meetings; however, if you have any questions regarding your child’s learning or the curriculum, please communicate with the class teacher through Class Dojo. Similarly, if there are any concerns, please contact the school office to arrange an appointment and the relevant member of staff will contact you by phone.
Tomorrow, all children and staff will be coming into school wearing their favourite denim in support for Jeans for Genes Day. It is a worthy organisation that raises money to support children in the UK that struggle with life-altering genetic disorders. Please make sure that you bring £1 on the day to show your support. I would also like to note that all children will still be required to wear school uniform and correct footwear, with the exception of denim
