New Class Transition

On Tuesday 6th July (am) your child’s new class teacher will meet with your child’s class. We hope that these sessions will enable your child to feel more comfortable with the move to their new class in September.

On this day, can we ask that you drop your child off at the new classroom in the morning and collect from the new class in the evening. Please keep the same staggered start/entry time that your child currently starts and ends school.

One Way System Reminders

Thank you to everyone for being so flexible and understanding with the one-way system - we really do appreciate your support.

Please continue to use the allocated entry points. This is to ensure that we do not have too many people entering at the same point. To enable social distancing to take place, everyone should also be walking in the same direction. Here is a reminder of the entry/exit locations and times:

Once you have collected/dropped off your child(ren) please leave the site as soon as possible and remind your children not to use the external play equipment. We are following current Government guidelines and we are trying to ensure there is minimal contact between bubbles so we can keep the children, parents and staff as safe as possible.

Nut Allergy

We have some pupils in school with a severe nut allergy and we would greatly appreciate your support in ensuring that we can keep them safe and healthy in school. We would appreciate your support in reducing the risk of an allergic reaction taking place in school. Therefore, we ask that your child does not bring nuts, or products with nuts in them, into school. This may include some types of cakes, biscuits, cereal bars and vegetarian products. Please be assured that the school has clear policies and procedures in place for managing any allergic reactions in school. Our allergy policy is available on our website.

If your child has any allergies, please ensure that you inform the school office straight away the relevant steps can be taken in school to keep them safe and well. We do speak to pupils about what allergies are and how they can help reduce the risk of allergic reactions happening in school.

If you do have any questions about this, please contact the school office. Please click below for advice from the NHS: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/food-allergy/living-with/ 

Thank you once again for all your support.
