Optional Collection from 1pm-19th July 2022

Dear Parents and Carers,

 

We have been keeping an eye on the temperatures and the way our classrooms are responding to today’s heat. Today feels different to yesterday and we have now already exceeded the highest temperature that we saw yesterday during school time. As a result, we have decided to offer you the opportunity, should you wish, to collect your child this afternoon so that they can be more comfortable in their own home.

 

We are not closing the school and will remain open as usual for anyone that needs us to. If you’re unable to collect your child, please do not worry-we will do everything we can to help them manage and keep safe with usual collection expected at 3.30pm.

 

All children will have had lunch today in school as usual.

 

If you would like to collect-then we ask that you come to the main gates between 1pm and 1.15pm and we will direct you to collect from your usual spaces. If you need to arrive after this time, please come to the main reception. You do not need to let us know if you are coming to collect-please just either arrive at the designated time or afterwards to the main office and we will manage the collection for you.

 

Thank you for your understanding and patience and I hope that you are all ok during these temperatures.

 

Best Wishes,

 

Mr Eden

Headteacher


Extreme Weather: Monday and Tuesday 18th/19th

Dear Parents and Carers,
 
On Monday and Tuesday the forecast is due to be extremely warm with temperatures predicted to be in excess of 30 degrees. Please note that school will remain open and there is no current plan to close the school. We will take steps to increase ventilation and reduce the amounts of time spent directly in the sunshine and we will be encouraging the children to stay hydrated throughout the day. PE will be cancelled for the 2 days, with sessions moved to another point in the week when it will be cooler and exposure to sunshine during lunchtime will be kept to a minimum with shady areas being maximised.
Please send your child to school in their PE Kit, making sure their clothing is as loose fitting as possible (no flip flops or open shoes please)-please do not worry about the usual uniform requirements/expectations for these two days. Please also ensure children come to school with sun hats, water bottles and suncream already applied (with more if needed).
 
Please do not worry about your child during this time, we will take every step possible to ensure their health and safety at every point in the day.
 
Best Wishes,
Mr Eden
Headteacher

Sports Afternoon Information

Dear Parents and Carers,

We are very much looking forward to welcoming you into school on Thursday afternoon for Sports Afternoon. The children are very excited to take part in the different sporting activities. Below is information related to how the event will work and the associated timings.

Please can we ask that parents and carers arrive around 1.10pm. We will open the main gates and direct you to the playground and field where the children will be waiting to begin the afternoon activities. The front of school will be busy so it would be wise for those who can to walk rather than drive.

The children will be split into 4 teams-please ask your child which team they are in as this will help you to quickly locate them on arrival.

Approx. 1.20pm-Carousel of activities. Children will rotate around 4 activities in mixed age groups. As groups move to each activity-parents will follow their child, with siblings in the same group to make this easier.

Approx. 2pm-following the carousel of activities, we will then move to the running track on the field. The children will sit on the playing field side of the track in class groups and parents can congregate along the other side to watch the children undertake the races which will last for around 45m-1hour.

We envisage that the Sports Afternoon will finish around 3pm and we will then take the children back to class to collect their belongings. If you would like to collect your child at this time, we will ask that you wait patiently in your usual collection areas and we will release the children to you. All children are to be collected as usual by 3.30pm.

Parents and Carers will be able to take photographs throughout the event. We just ask, as usual, that you do not put any children, of which you don't have permission, on social media without taking steps to protect these children's anonymity (blurring faces etc).

We are very excited to run this event and hope to see you on Thursday.

Best Wishes,

Mr Eden

 



Clubs-Term 6

Dear Parents and Carers,

We have been busy putting together a menu of clubs for Term 6 and are delighted to offer an array of different clubs all provided by our incredible staff team. Please click here for more information on each of the clubs.

We have simplified the way that you apply for a place on these clubs. Each of the clubs has a link to a Microsoft Form related to that particular club-we are asking you to complete these forms to register interest in your child joining the club. If more children apply for places than the total places available, a draw will be held to determine the places and this will be done as fairly as possible to ensure that all children receive access to at least one club across the week. We are asking for all expressions of interest to be registered by Wednesday 8th June 2022. Parents will be notified if a place has been gained by Friday 10th June.

We are very much looking forward to delivering these clubs and enriching the wider curriculum and ensuring children get the opportunity to continue their learning and enjoyment in different areas of the curriculum.

Best Wishes,

Mr Eden
Headteacher
