Friday Newsletter – 4th September 2020

Well Done & Thank You!

Well, we have reached the end of what was a very different first week for us all here in school. I want to say a massive well done to each and every one of the children. They have adapted so well to all the new routines and procedures in place and are just getting on with the ‘new normal’. I would also like to thank all of you, our parents, for also following and adapting to all the new procedures in school. So far, everything seems to be working well – long may it continue. Our main priority in school, as always, is to ensure that every child is safe and that we continue to provide the best learning experiences and opportunities.

Data Collection

Could any remaining data collection sheets, permission slips and Covid Home/School agreements please be returned to school on Monday 7th September?

Lunch Menu

For week beginning Monday 7th September, we will be following Week 2 on the school lunch menu.

School Uniform

It is lovely to see all our children looking so smart in their new uniform. A few reminders:

– Boys should be wearing grey trousers/shorts

– Girls should be wearing grey trousers/skirts/pinafores

– Long hair must be tied back

– Children are permitted to wear one pair of small stud earrings

If, for any reason this cannot be adhered to, please inform me in writing. Please also make sure that ALL items of school clothing are clearly labelled.

Healthy Breaks & Lunches

We do promote healthy eating in school and encourage children to make healthy choices. Our school kitchen provides healthy and nutritious meals and also items for snack at break time. Please try to limit lunchbox treats to one per day. Thank you.

Mrs Scott is the Designated Teacher for Child Protection and Mrs Smyth is a member of the Safeguarding Team.

Breakfast Club

Our ‘socially distanced’ breakfast club is working very well. Please remember that if your child needs to be in school before 8.40am, they must use breakfast club (£1.05). This is the only supervision in school at this time.
