Friday update

Good afternoon all,


I hope you and your families are all keeping well. Remember if you have any concerns or worries we are here to listen. Contact through the school office and we will try to support you through this ongoing difficult time.


As we are now moving in to 'tier 2' can I suggest that parents/carers picking up or dropping off wear a face covering. It can get a little busy at times and I am naturally conscious of keeping you all safe. I know it isn't mandatory outside at the moment but may make some people feel more secure or comfortable and we are all in this together.


I am happy to report that all our year 2 children will be returning on Monday with only the 1 case having been reported. Although it is frustrating to have to isolate we know this is the way forward to keep all our children safe and feel that any further cases were minimised on this occasion. The children have been receiving daily home schooling and this will be the case with any future bubbles affected. Your class teacher will be in touch via dojo if this is the case and there is a secure area under the children's tab for this offsite learning. Please make sure you have signed up for the dojo app. We know it can be very difficult for parents to home school-please discuss any potential barriers that we may be able to assist with now with your class teachers or myself so that we can address them just in case. (fingers crossed we won't have to have any more closures).


Please remember to send your child in to school with an appropriate coat for outdoors. The children need to be in the fresh air but it is getting rather damp and chilly!


As of next week we will be selling poppies and the other usual items (In class bubbles only). Please send children with money in a purse or envelope if you would like them to buy something. (If you would like to stipulate 'poppy only' then just pop a note in with it as there are things like wrist bands and rubbers usually available).


I have put this week's REACH assembly on the website under the offsite learning section.


I hope you all have a lovely, safe weekend.
