Preparing for the wider opening of school

Posted on

I hope everyone enjoyed half term and made the most of the lovely weather especially as we seem to have returned to a typical British summer this week !

We have been busy this week working with the children that are in school and getting school ready to welcome more children back next week.

Feedback from other local schools has been really positive and their children have been really excited about returning which is encouraging for us as a school community.

Home learning will continue to be posted on class dojo and the website for early years and the children will be expected to carry on with this on the days they are not in school please. This will be used in school too on the days the children are in so there is consistency across the week. Please be aware that staff will be physically in school more now and won’t be able to respond in the same way to messages but will do their very best !

We will include in next week’s newsletter a section on celebration as we would at our weekly assemblies on a Friday. There will be Head teachers awards given for individual children which will be announced in the weekly newsletter and we will also include birthdays. This will include all children those in school and those remaining at home. Please try and let us know about anything outside of school that we need to celebrate too so we can include it.

Finally just a reminder that the dropping off and picking up of children next week will naturally become more complicated. Please adhere to the timings you have been given and be patient as we will be operating a one way system which everyone will soon become used to ! We have had a practice this week with the key worker children and it has worked well ! A link to a film clip has been sent out to those parents with children returning via parent mail so I am hoping that this will help.

Have a great weekend and hopefully we will see the return of the sunshine soon !
