Friday update

Happy Friday everyone! 


Thank you for another week of positivity. We have had some lovely messages over the week and as a school community we feel very well supported. We know that you are all working hard too so really appreciate this.


Planning for September

From this week's guidance we are creating plans for September. All our plans will be driven as always by the government guidance.

It looks most likely that class groups will be in bubbles. This will hopefully mean all children in with their regular class teacher. You will therefore be given information about how this will look with drop off times etc nearer the time. 

If, however, we are required to continue with set year groups and keyworker children only ( for example if there is another spike or return to full lock down) we will start the registration for this once we are directed to do so. This will mean that all Key workers will need to re register so that we can allocate spaces before taking on other year groups.

Once again I must state that much of our planning is dependant on guidance and we cannot make promises for how the school opening will look from September, as I know you are very aware that the guidance is dependant on many factors, but we will continue to keep you informed.


Class teachers

We will inform you of your child's new class teacher next week via text.

There will be a meet the teacher session either in person or virtually on Friday

4th September at 3.30. The children will have their transition days on the Thursday and Friday we start back in September as outlined in my previous update.


Contact details

If you have changed or need to change your contact details please make sure the school is kept up to date with these. This includes phone numbers, addresses and emails.


Holiday club provision

We are now taking bookings for holiday club. The deadline for registering is Friday 17th July. This should be done by contacting Bernie directly. Details under the parent's tab - WRAP around club.



I have done some safeguarding assemblies this week under my updates tab and hope that the children have been able to view them.


We hope you all have a lovely weekend.
