Dear Families,

Whilst the temperature increases in summer, so does the level of activity in schools. We remain determined to keep pushing the children forward with their learning and we want them to achieve the aspirational targets that we have set for them. We are keen for as many children as possible to be at the level ‘expected’ of their age- and beyond. If your child has been offered extra tuition, please try and make arrangements for them to be in earlier/ picked up later so they can attend these extra sessions – thank you.   

Dropping your child to school

Parents are reminded that the school gates to the playground do not open until 8.45am, unless your child is attending our breakfast club provision, in which case the gates will open to these children from 7.45am. We have noticed some children arriving at the school gate as early as 8.00am, this is far too early. Unfortunately, we are unable to take any responsibility for any child left unsupervised before this time.

Please encourage your child to walk the path into school and line up quietly as staff are entering the school site and parking up. Some children are meeting on the pavement outside, and this is causing an obstruction, and isn’t safe.

Thank you for your co-operation.

Out in the Sun

Please ensure your child is prepared for the weather (even on dull days as these can turn into hot days) – sun cream/water bottles/ hats.

Events

Tuesday – Y6 are shopping for their £5 Challenge

Wednesday - Favourite Meal Choice of Y4/5

Friday - Y6 £5 Challenge starts at 2.00pm – all students are encouraged to bring their pennies in to spend on the activities Y6 have prepared.

COVID

We are following the NHS guidance regarding Covid Symptoms in school. If your child has a temperature and sickness, please keep them at home until they are well – three days is recommended. You do not need to carry out a test unless medically advised to do so. The NHS guidance for children is available here: NHS Link

The coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccines are being offered to children aged 5 to 15, printed details are available, or have a look at this LINK. Two doses are being offered to children aged 5 to 15 to give them the best protection against COVID-19.

PE and Forest School Days

Students will need to come into school in their PE and Forest School kit on their specified PE days. Even if the weather is hot, children are still required to wear long sleeved top and trousers, as this protects them during the activities.

Class A Monday & Thursday

Class C Monday & Tuesday

Class D Tuesday & Friday

Class E Wednesday & Thursday

Class F Wednesday & Friday

Class G will have Forest School on Thursday afternoons during these weeks instead of PE.  Further information about PE/ Forest school kit has been emailed out to you.

Outside Achievements

Please remember to send in details if your child has achieved things outside of school for our Friday celebration assembly. The students love sharing with us what they have been doing.
