We have come to the end of our first full week in school and we are very proud of the way in which your children have settled back into school life. Every classroom has a calm learning environment and all children are engaging in learning very well.

We are working in a new and changing climate at the moment and would like to, once again, thank you for your understanding and support as we move forward.

Social Distancing

It is really important that we all try to maintain social distancing whilst dropping off and collecting children from school. We know that this isn’t easy and hope that the staggered exit times support you in doing so. We are grateful to you for your support and patience.

Government New 6 Rule

At-a-glance: What are the new rules?

  • Social gatherings of more than six people in England will not be allowed in law from Monday 14 September.
  • The new rule applies to people in private homes, indoors and outdoors, and places such as pubs, restaurants, cafes and public outdoor spaces.
  • It applies to all ages.
  • The rule does not apply to schools and workplaces, to people living together or in the same support bubble, or to weddings, funerals and organised team sports.
  • The full list of exemptions also includes protests and political activities subject to "strict risk assessments", jury service and providing emergency assistance.
  • People who ignore the police could be fined £100 - doubling with each offence to a maximum of £3,200.

Wellington Boots

Please can you ensure that all children have a pair of wellington boots in school with them. This year every class will attend the Woodland Area for a weekly planned lesson and it can be muddy depending on the weather.

Just a polite reminder: please do not leave litter on the school premises.

Late arrival at school

When your child arrives late at school, he/she misses the teacher's instructions, their morning task and possibly the introduction to the mathematics lesson. Your child may also feel embarrassed at having to enter the classroom late. School begins at 09.00am. Please help your child to be punctual.
