Bits and Pieces W/C 29/06

Dear Parents,


We hope this week's Bits and Pieces find you and your family well. Today we welcomed back Year 5 into school, who have very quickly adapted to the new routines in place. We are exceptionally proud of how all our children have adapted so easily to the new normal.


Attached with this e mail is an overview sent from Knowledge Schools Trust detailing more about them, as well as a summary overview from the parent meetings held last week. Below this paragraph is a short survey to complete, which includes the option to ask Ian Hunter and Laura Lund further questions and whether those parents unable to attend last week would be interested in attending a further session before the end of term. Please complete this survey by 9am Friday.

17th July - school closes for the summer

3rd September - school re-opens for the autumn. We are waiting for further guidance from central government about restrictions which will, or will not, still be in place for September opening. We are currently planning for a full return to normal school, though this may change.

1st - 4th September - Home visits for Reception class (tbc)

7th September - Reception start full-time school


Re-opening for Autumn: September 2020

Until we have further guidance regarding provision in September, we are unable to confirm whether we will be able to run Breakfast Club and After School Club. As it stands, this is not something that we would be able to do as it would involve mixing children from bubbles and also mixing staff members. We will keep you updated on any changes to this guidance and will let you know once we are able to provide this wrap around care for our children.


End of term: Friday 10th July

To enable us to run our transition sessions and welcome sessions in the last week of term, all of our current bubbles will finish on Friday 10th July.  Details below about booking in to our transition sessions.


Parent survey reminders: Closing date Wednesday 1st July 9am

Thank you to all of those who have taken the time to complete the parent survey form - it is greatly appreciated. It is really important to us that the results represent as many of our parents as possible so if you haven't yet completed the survey, please follow the link below; the average time to complete the form is just 5 minutes . Thank you in advance.

Transition sessions/ Welcome sessions reminder: Deadline 9am Tuesday 30th June

9am, Tuesday 30th June is the deadline to book your child a place on our transition sessions and welcome sessions that will be running the week beginning 13th July.  We are offering 1.5day sessions for all of our current children who would like to return as per the email sent out last week. For our reception new starters, we are offering two two-hour sessions. Please complete the relevant forms by clicking on the following links if you would like to book a session; letters will be sent out at the end of this week to let you know which sessions your child is invited to. If you are a key worker whose child is currently in school, there is an option on the form to choose between the transition sessions or whether you require your child to continue in a key worker bubble. Unfortunately, we can not offer both. It is really important that we have confirmation of who would like to attend these sessions, so when the form closes on Tuesday, we will be unable to offer any transition sessions after that date.
