3rd September 2021

 

Dear Parents/Carers

 

We hope that you have all had a lovely summer break and are looking forward to coming back to school and getting back into the school routine!

 

We are really looking forward to welcoming your children back to school, for what we hope will be something more like 'normal' and that we can bring back some parts of the curriculum and extra curricular activities that we haven't been able to do under Covid rules. Things like swimming and the Lineham Farm Residential. Or, trips to the Meanwood Valley Farm and Middleton Woods, the seaside for paddling in the sea and eating ice-cream! Taking part in sporting events such as Football, Hockey, Basketball and Athletics...we feel that we have missed so much, but there's so much to look forward to this year!

 

Whilst there are lots of Covid rule changes in the UK, as a school we feel that we would like to retain some of the measures we had in place. We are calling these 'Covid -Keeps' - either because they proved to be more efficient, sending emailed letters and information instead of paper for example, or because, we feel that we would like to continue monitoring the Covid situation locally and think that if we continue with the measures we put in place before the summer, we stand a better chance of being able to easily 'roll back' to previous plans so that we can effectively manage any future problems the virus may present.

 

Considering we were really fortunate with the low number of 'burst bubbles' we had in the last academic year, (just THREE in the whole year!) we think we did a really good job of keeping everyone safe. So, we hope you agree that by keeping some of these measures in place we are less likely to have situations where we have to have children learning from home. Parents did a fantastic job during lockdown, but I've heard many of you have a new understanding of the teaching role and what it entails!

 

I would be grateful if you could please read the latest advisory about the children in Reception and Years 1-6 coming back to school next week: Parent Advisory so that we can get the new academic year off to a good start.

 

We are keeping the staggered start and end times to reduce the number of people in the school vicinity at any one time. We appreciate that some parents have more than one child to collect, but please bear with us and join the appropriate queues to drop off and collect your children so that we can get them safely inside school each morning and back to you as quickly as possible.
