Sports Day/Parental Involvement

Dear Parents and Carers,

As we move through this term and begin to make preparations for the end of the academic year, we are beginning to get enquiries about how events such as Sports Day will look this year.

This evening, the Prime Minister is due to announce what will happen next with respect to further easing of restrictions. It is likely that freedom from restrictions are to be delayed by a period of time, but despite this we have already decided that we will not be changing any of our current systems or procedures between now and the end of this academic year. We envisage that any further changes that we do make will be made for the start of the new academic year in September (which will, of course, be made in line with updated guidance).

With this in mind, we will be holding Sports Day on Friday 16th July. This year, we will be holding our Sports Day events during the school day and unfortunately, due to current restrictions, we will not be inviting parents, carers or family members to attend. All end of year events that would usually take place will be modified to ensure that we finish the end of year as we always have, but due to Covid-19, parents will not be able to attend I am afraid. If we are unable to hold Sports Day on 16th July, we have also pencilled in 19th July as an alternative date. I can also confirm that we will not be holding a Summer Fayre this year.

We do appreciate that Sports Day is a special time in the calendar and an opportunity for parents and carers to see children in a different light away from the classroom. Please be assured that we will share as many pictures as possible from the day and look forward to helping each child continue to be the best they can be in all aspects of the curriculum. I very much look forward to next year, where we can hopefully return to normal; involving parents and carers/family members in all aspects of school life.

Thank you, as always, for your continued support.

Best Wishes,

Mr Eden
