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.
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.
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.
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.
Favourite meal choice is on Wednesday, don’t forget we have a healthy selection of food at breaktime – the toast is delicious.
