We are so pleased to see the children back where they belong. The school opened its doors to all pupils on Monday and it all went very smoothly. I was very pleased to see parents standing socially distanced and wearing face protection. To reduce the congestion further do come alone if you are picking up and don't linger unnecessarily by the gate as it obstructs our view when trying to reunite children with their adults.
We are operating safely in our respective class bubbles. The staff and children were very pleased to see each other and to have face to face conversations in the real school surroundings.
To help the smooth running of the day and to ensure the gates are safely secured please help us by being on time.
8:45 Gates open
9:05 Registers close
3:20 End of the day (slightly earlier for Acorn).
Welcome to New Starters
Not only did we welcome back our pupils on Monday but we also welcomed our new starters in the Nursery. Under normal circumstance our new starters are shown around the whole school and have the chance to meet the staff, but these experiences have obviously been limited this year. They all bravely came in on their first day after saying goodbye to parents at the gates and they had a fantastic time in Acorns. We hope to offer a belated welcome meeting just as soon as we can, but well done on preparing your children so well to cope with starting in nursery.
World Book Day Winners
Well done to these worthy winners of the toilet roll competition. Thank you to all those who entered this World Book Day fun activity. Your creative skills were second to none this year! Very impressive and very inventive.
Get Set Tokyo
Thank you for preparing and equipping your children so well ready for the return to school. We have learnt much from this challenging period and want to harness and build on these experiences and discoveries. The children have learnt how to face challenges, overcome adversity and have built their resilience. They have approached the return to school with such great positivity. It is such a pleasure to see them (and you!).
Have a wonderful weekend.
We are hoping to see a return to some of the usual fundraising activities in the Summer Term. Watch this space! Ideas, thoughts and suggestions are very welcome.
Keep safe and thank you for your continued support,
