Newsletter 22 October 2020

 

Dear Parents and Carers,

 

As we come to the end of our first seven weeks back at school, I would like to thank you for kindness and support. Your words of encouragement and understanding have been very much appreciated. I would like to thank the children for being so good and doing everything that we expect of them. They have been so happy to be back at school and it fills me with great pride when I see them enjoying their school day. I would also like to thank the staff and governors. What a team! They continue to give the children an excellent education and do everything they can to ensure the children the best but also care for them greatly.

 

I wish you all a happy half term!

 

Harvest

 

Sadly we haven’t been able to have our traditional Harvest Festival celebrations that we usually have. This hasn’t stopped us from producing a video presentation and I would like to thank Mrs McDonnell and the staff for making this happen. It will be uploaded onto Google Classroom for the children and families to enjoy. Please can I remind you that this is an internal school production and must not be shared on social media. Sadly we cannot ask for and sell produce this year. Instead, we would be grateful for a donation that will be split between a homeless charity and CAFOD. Cash donations may be brought in and will be left in isolation for a week. Parents and carers can also make a donation to our school account and Mrs Gordge will transfer the money. Please enter ‘CAFOD’ or ‘CHARITY DONATION’ if you are transferring money, as this will help Mrs Gordge to allocate the money correctly. Our account details are:

 

Sort Code: 30-98-45

Wear Red Day – Show Racism The Red Card

 

Thank you for all the kind donations for the Show Racism the Red Card charity! The children looked wonderful in red!

 

Car Park

 

A newsletter would not be the same if I didn’t mention the car park. Thank you for all your support with our procedures. We cannot afford to become relaxed with this and must follow the guidance we have put in place. I appreciate that parents like to drop off or collect as quickly as possible but I ask for patience with this. The car park is completely cleared most days by 3:40pm. Please read the main points below that I would like to emphasise.

 

-          Please be mindful of your parking in the car park and try to park as close to other vehicles to allow more cars into the car park.

-          If you are waiting in the road that leads to the school car park, please stay in your car. Do not leave your car to collect your child/children.

-          Please wait by your car so staff can escort the children to you. Keep in and close by your car so staff can escort children safely to each family. There have been parents that have left their cars and blocked routes for staff – this makes it harder for the staff and puts them at risk. Do not block the pathways.

-          Pedestrians must continue to stay by the fencing. Do not block the pathways.

-          The pedestrians of KS2 children (Only KS2 children in their family – not a family with KS1 and KS2) may continue to use the side gate in the mornings. An adult must stay with them until the gate opens at 8:50. We make an exception for Year Six children only but they must not be left at the gate before 8:45am.

 

Mufti Day on Friday 13th November

 

Just a reminder that we will be having a Mufti Day on Friday 13th November and will be asking for donations of items to be made into hampers for the raffle.

 

We would like the following items from each year group:

 

Reception class – Soaps / candles

Class 1 – Toys for girls

Class 2 – Toys for boys

Class 3 – Something sweet

Class 4 – Something savoury

Class 5 – Something for Mums

Class 6 – Something for Dads

I would like to thank Antoni’s mum for her kind donation to the raffle prizes.

 

Christmas Jumper and Christmas Dinner Day

 

We will be having our Christmas Jumper and Christmas Dinner day at the school on Thursday 17th December. The children will have their Christmas Dinner in the hall but will be remaining in their bubbles.

 

Best wishes
