UPDATE 08/06/20

KEY WORKER CHILDCARE - WEEKS BEGINNING 22nd JUNE, 29th JUNE, 6th JULY and 13th JULY

Please be aware that currently we cannot guarantee the opening of school for education of Nursery, Reception, Year 1 or Year 6 or exactly when this may happen. Therefore, if your child is in one of these year groups, please book any childcare you may need IF the school has not opened. (If and when the school has opened to your child’s class we will assume your child will attend with their class rather than for child care, unless you inform us otherwise.) Please note that it is vital that we have accurate information of your child care needs as this will impact on the number of children/classes we can offer education to in school.

PLEASE NOTE, THIS BOOKING FORM IS AVAILABLE UNTIL 9AM WEDNESDAY 17TH JUNE 2020.

 UPDATE 13/05/20

 Dear Parents/Carers

Urgent response required from Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 6.

I hope this letter finds you and your family safe and well.

As you are aware, the government would like schools to start to reopen to Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 children from Monday 1st June 2020. In order for us to prepare for this and to ensure the safety of all children, parents and staff, it is necessary for us to know if you will be sending your child/ren to school when we are open those year groups.

Please can you provide us with this information by Monday 18th May at 12pm using the registration form on our school website. You will need to complete a separate registration form for each child. If you cannot do this online, please call the school office, on option 3, to let us know your decision either way. Your response is really important to us; we would appreciate a 100% response. If you do not reply, we will assume you do not want a place.

We need this information urgently in order to plan the following: classroom allocation, timetabling, staffing requirements (ratios), safe movement around the site for children, parents and staff (to include the potential staggering of pick up/drop off) and lunchtime arrangements etc.

Please be aware that if and when children come to school, they will be in much smaller groups which may mean they could be in different classrooms from the one they may be used to, they may not be with their friends and they may be with different teaching staff. School will no longer look and feel the same as it has in the past; the groups will not mix e.g. no assemblies, no competitive sports, no playtimes with their friends etc. We will endeavour to provide a broad and balanced curriculum within the constraints of this current situation. However, restrictions on the sharing of resources and movement around the classroom will inevitably have an impact. We are aware this could be unsettling for the children and we will support them in every way we can with this.

All of this information will be used to manage and reduce risk and to ensure the continued healthy and safety and well-being of the children, parents and staff whilst on site.

If the risk assessment indicates that the risk is too high, then we will have to reassess our position. Whilst we will do all that we can to support the children returning to school, the health and safety of all staff and pupils will be the overarching priority and if we feel that this may be compromised in some way, we will not open the school until it is safe to do so.

Once we have your information and have conducted a thorough review of need, in line with current DfE guidance, we will then be in a position to advise you of arrangements and protocols which will need to be in place to start a smooth transition back to school. The DfE has advised that parents will not be fined for non-attendance.

May I take this opportunity to thank you all for your continued support at this very difficult time.

Yours sincerely

Deborah Allen
Head teacher

De la cabeza a los pies with Señora Stevens

sharkIt's time for another Spanish story from Señora Stevens. 


This one is written by Eric Carle and features animals getting active.
Can you copy the movements made by the animals? If you can, you can join in and shout ¡yo también! 

It's called De la cabeza a los pies - From Head to Toe in English (although the more observant of you that have been doing your Spanish homework may notice that 'los pies' are feet not toes!)

 

Mrs Allen - Retirement Information

Dear Parents / Carers,

When Mrs Allen announced her retirement none of us could have envisaged that within a few short months we would see a national lockdown or foreseen all of the measures put in place to stop the spread of Covid-19. This has also meant that we have been unable to recruit a Deputy Head Teacher in time for September.

Therefore, I am delighted to announce that Mrs Allen has agreed to work alongside us in school for a couple of days a week in the Autumn term. This will provide us with some extra support for the temporarily reduced Senior Leadership Team.

So although the time has come for Mrs Allen to officially begin to enjoy her retirement, it is not yet time for her to say goodbye completely and we will enjoy welcoming her back to school for the Autumn term.
