Dear Parents and Carers,
Returning to school Monday 8th March
We are all looking forward to welcoming all the children back to school on Monday 8th March. As I said last week, our Covid-19 control measures and systems will largely be the same as before Christmas.
As a reminder, the ‘Infographic’ and ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ that we sent out in September with key information have both been updated and are attached, as it is useful to refresh everyone. Please check the drop of and pick up times for each class bubble.
We want all the children to return on Monday. School becomes compulsory for every child from Monday 8th March. If you have any concerns about your child returning, please do speak to us this week, and we will hopefully be able to reassure you. As coming to school is compulsory, we will be working closely with Liz Cummings, our Education Welfare Officer. This will be to follow up with any families where children have not returned to school and to help reassure everyone
As all children whether they have been working at home or in school get used to being together in school, we are making some slight changes to the curriculum over the next few weeks. This is to help everyone come together as a class again and prioritise mental and physical health alongside the reading, writing and maths. My May’s overview of the curriculum going forward is also attached.
Thank you for your continued support during lockdown. Finally, I wanted to pay tribute to the whole staff team. They have been absolutely amazing and have worked so hard to provide in school and home learning. They are a brilliant team made up of dedicated and caring individuals.
