Head Teacher Welcome Back Post

Dear Parents and Carers

Firstly, a very Happy New Year to you all! I hope that you and your family have had a relaxing seasonal holiday break and have kept in good health.

A reminder that pupils start back tomorrow (Thursday) with no changes to the start and finish times.

We are ready for some disruption this month due to COVID related absences. We are thankful that school will at least be open as usual. Once again, thank you for you understanding of any potential changes to our service during this period.

Parents are again asked to keep to 2 metres physical distancing from other adults at drop off and pick up times and not wait any longer than needed.

We kindly ask that all nursery parents use the black gate entrance at the right-hand side of the school and do not cut across the main playground when the school children are lining up. Thank you for your continued cooperation with this request.

Children may wear extra layers of clothing to keep warm in class as windows must be kept open for ventilation.

We ask that additional items from home such as toys and balls are not brought in to school.

Parents are kindly asked not to enter the school building unless by prior arrangement. Please continue to call, text and email first wherever possible.

Our new Office Administrator, Ms Catherine Rose, starts with us this week. She will need some time to get up to speed with our school systems. Can I thank you in advance for your patience and understanding whilst she settles into her new post. We will do whatever we can to ensure a smooth service for parents and pupils during this time however there may be some delays with support of some services eg; ParentPay. I am certain you will find Ms Rose a very friendly and helpful addition to our team. She is eager to support our pupils and families in any way she can.

Please let us know if your child has tested positive for COVID either by a home LFD test or PCR test. 

Finally, please can you let the school know if you have changed your phone number or home address recently. It is very important that we have working contact details for you in case you child becomes unwell during school time.

Thank you again for your ongoing support of the school and we look forward to welcoming the children tomorrow morning.

Yours sincerely

Fiona Craig
Head Teacher
