Dear Families,

Emails

Please check then read your emails. A few carers/ parents are missing out on important information, or asking about details that have already been sent to them. It might be better to mark all emails from Groupcall/ admin2571@welearn365.com as a VIP contact, or any another way, so you are alerted by your device when these are sent out.  

 

INSET Day and Half-term

A reminder that school will be closed for an INSET day on Monday 18th October, also the half-term holiday begins on Monday 25th  October. School will re-open at the usual time on Monday 1st  November 2021.

Term dates for this academic year can be found on our website: https://exhalljunior.org.uk/calendar

Black History Month

As part of a month of learning, on Friday, we will be focusing on the stories of those individuals whose valuable contributions need to be shared. Their achievements aren’t only of interest or relevance to black people, they belong to us all, whatever our skin colour.

Covid

A simplified 'what to do if' document has been issued to you. Attendance is very important, but we have had another positive case in school and we need to make sure that we do all we can to keep everyone in our school community safe.  All those identified as a close contact have been notified directly.

Another local school had 32 confirmed cases over the last two weeks, so we are getting off lightly in comparison. There is the recommendation that LFTs are done to ensure asymptomatic passing on of the virus is stopped.  

 

Curriculum

After half term we are starting our next block of learning on Thursday afternoons, this will impact on PE and Forest School.  We will issue a document next week confirming PE and Forest School arrangements from 1st November, so that parents/carers know when to send their children into with alternative clothing.

 

Harvest

Thank you for all our donations, you have been very generous, they will be collected this week by the local foodbank.    

Data Collection Sheets

We are still missing data collection sheets that have been issued to all carers/ parents can you check the details, amend if necessary, sign and return so that our records are up to date.
