We are expecting to be fully open in September (Thank goodness) we are still waiting guidance and are expecting that next week so hopefully in a week or two I will be able to give you exact plans for our return, they may include staggered start and end times, separate lunch times, no classes can mix – these are all speculation of course, so we will wait until guidance is released so you know exactly what to expect.

School Reports

You should receive your child’s school report no later than Friday 10th July. They will either arrive via the post or will be hand delivered.

Year 5 Parents

The application process starts soon for applying for a place for high school. At this time had we have been in school then Liz Stevenson would have come to school for a meeting with you, as this cannot happen she has created a video containing all the information you need. The link below takes you our school website relevant page.

Teams

I am delighted to inform you that we have been awarded a grant by the Government in order for us to have teams as a platform for students. Over the next few weeks this will be set up for us by the provider. As soon as I have details of how your child can access it I will let you know. This is a big relief as I have been working on this now for several weeks.

Wider opening – how did it go?

On the 8th June we welcomed back some pupils from Reception, Year 1 and Year 6. It has been great having more children in school and we were delighted how settled they have been coming back into a school environment that was different to when they left. The Reception and Year 6 group are running at capacity now and we have some space left in the year 1 group. All children in school have been doing the same work that has been posted online each week.

Free School Meals

The government has extended the voucher scheme for over the summer. However, the guidance is that it is a one-off voucher that covers the whole 6 weeks. You should receive this at the beginning of the holiday in the same way you have received your other vouchers. If you think you might be entitled to free school meals please follow this link and complete the online form

Please remember we are here if you need help or support with anything. Take care all and we will be in touch when we know more.
