Return to School KS2 15th March
Welcome back Key Stage 2
We are all incredibly exited to see your Key Stage 2 Pupils return to school on 15th March. Please do not worry if your child has grown out of their uniform, the important thing if for your child to be back in school. I ask our school community to follow the guidance sent out earlier this week and take note of the entry and exit times to site. This will help us ease footfall on site and transmission too. Remember to wear a face mask on site at all times.
Parking could be an issues as work on the ‘SEASON’s’ site has begun, the carpark won’t be available for parking. If you are able to walk to school please do, if you can’t walk please park responsibly.
Have a lovely weekend, we can’t wait for Monday.
PARENTPAY – SCHOOL MEALS FROM MONDAY 22ND – 26TH MARCH
If your child has a school meal, please can parents book their meals from Tuesday 16th March for the last week of term, as our computers are being upgraded. Meal numbers will be printed off on Friday 19th March for the following week.
RED NOSE & DOWN SYNDROME DAY ON FRIDAY 19TH MARCH.
On Friday 19th March we will be raising money for Red Nose day (Comic Relief) and World Down Syndrome Day. Both charities are close to our hearts. Please wear a red nose (painted red if you can’t get a nose!) and/or odd socks and bring in £1.00 for charity. Half of the money raised will go to Red Nose (Comic Relief) and half to supporting Down Syndrome.
Lateral Flow testing
Lateral Flow Testing for staff has now been introduced, please be aware that this could impact on possible class closures at short notice. In the event of a member of staff testing positive a class bubble will need to be closed and pupils and staff will need to isolate. This will be communicated with you via text to parents in the first instance and followed up with a letter from school regarding the situation.
It is essential that any pupil, teacher or staff member who have COVID-19 symptoms, or who share a household with someone who has symptoms, does not attend the school / setting and follows the self-isolation guidance and access a test.
THE MAIN SYMPTOMS OF COVID-19:-
a high temperature: this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
a new, continuous cough: this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste: this means you’ve noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal.
