Dear Parents and Carers
The Prime Minister's announcement on Monday laid out the road map to end the current lockdown. All schools are to re-open on MONDAY 8th March. We are currently working hard to make sure everything is in place ready to welcome our children back. We are reviewing the risk assessments and are making sure the building and resources are ready to go. The children will remain in their class bubbles at all times, including break times and lunch times (which will be staggered). With the exception of staff, no adults will be allowed on the school site. More details about the slightly amended pick-up and drop-off arrangements will be posted on the school Dojo.
Please do check that uniforms still fit! Every child will need their own pencil case (not ACORN or OAK) filled with a set of their own resources to avoid sharing resources at school. The class teachers will post this as necessary on the class Dojo pages.
Thank you to everyone who has successfully managed to log in using their children's new Google accounts and passwords. This was introduced to all children and has made it possible to join live meet sessions safely. Even after the lockdown has ended we hope to continue using this valuable learning platform. The technology is improving and changing at an alarming rate but we have been extremely pleased with the remote learning provision across the school. So much so, that we will be using this method to enhance our in school teaching and learning provision.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we transferred over to the new system. As with most things, there will always be glitches. Please do get in touch if you are experiencing problems. The IT support within the Trust will also be helping us.

Wishing you and your families a lovely weekend. Spring feels like it is finally here. I hope you can get out to enjoy the sunshine.
Thank you so much to everyone who took part in our first virtual balloon race. 110 ‘FONTS’ balloons took part and just over £260 was raised for the school. Congratulations to Jayne Webber, owner of the balloon that travelled furthest – an impressive 1007.02 km!!
With the easing of lockdown restrictions underway, and hopefully continuing, we are hoping to see a return to some of the usual fundraising activities in the Summer Term. Watch this space!
If you have any questions – please contact us.
Keep safe and thank you for your continued support,
