I would like to say a big thank you to you all for the sensible way you have been working with our new guidelines. I know how confusing it can be and I want to thank you for being cheerful about it, and very helpful. We are delighted that our attendance is around 95% too. It means that the majority of our children are getting the important learning to support them moving forward after all the time they have missed.
Remote Learning – don’t forget to login to Google Classroom with your child, and check everything is working. Our Remote Learning Policy is in place and will be sent out next week. If your child is isolating but not ill, they can still take part in the learning.

We all need to follow the latest guidance https://bit.ly/34PCpej and will provide updates as restrictions change and adapt. If you have changed any contact details, please make sure you contact the school office either via phone or email to update them. This will be vital for us to get any urgent information to you. Email admin account at: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 01992 622180. The information below includes much of the same material as was sent out in July, this should just be a reminder for you.
Please remember that all of us must continue to follow the latest guidance from DFE/Public Health England: https://bit.ly/2BdyD26. If your child or anyone in your household shows symptoms you must get a Covid 19 test and isolate. Please do not put yourselves and others at risk. You must also inform the school so that we can take the appropriate measures. If we get a confirmed case/s we may have to close a class ‘bubble’ or potentially the school, so please be sensible. We have guidance to follow and will have to follow the advice we are given in terms of action to take following a confirmed case. We will expect you come to school immediately and take your child home if they are showing symptoms.
Should you be shielding or have any concerns about your child coming into school please let us know. If you have any concerns about your child, or feel there is additional information which it would be useful for the school to have before or after we start back, please email the admin account at: email@example.com or phone 01992 622180. This includes if there have been any changes to circumstances, bereavements or anything you feel may impact upon your child in school, please also update us. We are happy to call you to discuss in more detail. I know that children starting back to school will be a different experience this year. Please keep in contact and let us know of any concerns or worries you have.
