The week ends after all our children have experienced school. Reception to Year 6 have been at school all week and our youngest Nursery newbies have spent some time getting to know their new setting. The children have been wonderful. It has been without doubt, tiring and strange with so many different practices at school in the current situation. I congratulate every one of them. I am so proud of the way little ones have left their parent/carer at the gate and walked into school and how all have managed the break and lunchtime arrangements.
Parents and Carers also have been amazing - thank you for showing patience whilst we practised the safest exit routes, for being punctual and standing on our red stars to drop off and collect the children. We are now in a very good position to continue with this next week even if the weather is poor.
I have written a letter to all parents to explain some minor changes for next week, as follows -
- all children can bring a small bag into school as home/school books and reading books will be issued
- if you want your child to have fruit for breaktime, please provide this
- children to wear P.E. kit on their allocated day please
Already, the school has experienced some staff absence (non covid) this term, as a consequence, we have secured regular supply teachers to become part of our school staff bubble in the shorter term with an aim to secure consistency if teachers are absent.
I thank nearly all our parents for their respectful social distancing - it is imperative that we set an example for our children and keep each other safe.
Also, sent home today is a P.C.C. parental advice sheet regarding Covid symptoms with children.
If you have any queries or wish to get a message to your child's teacher, please ring the school office and staff will support with your query/request.
Thank you all for a good week at school. Have a great weekend!
