On the look out for an expert …

Our next expedition in KS1 is going to be all about keeping ourselves healthy. We are going to be thinking about:

  • Keeping our bodies healthy (exercise, looking after our mental health, eating healthily etc)
  • Growing food (gardening, planting and growing our own vegetables and herbs)
  • Cooking (preparing and making our own simple recipes)
  • Supporting local food banks and soup kitchens.

As always, we are on the lookout for some experts to come and speak to the children. If you or someone you know thinks you could help us out, please let me know.

It would be greatly appreciated.

Dress Up Day – Immersion Week

As part of our immersion week, we are asking the children to come to school on Friday 9th September dressed as someone who may have lived or worked in a castle – people like servants, kings and queens, princesses, court jesters, knights etc

Please don’t feel you need to spend lots of money on these at short notice, it may be a costume you already have at home, a mask you can print and make from the internet or there are lots of crafty ideas online too. As part of our immersion week we will be making crowns etc also, so every child will be involved.

On this day, we will be doing lots of fun activities relating to our new expedition – we will make sure we share lots of photographs and videos so that you can see what we get up to.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Welcome Back

Good Morning everyone,

It’s one week until we get to open our doors and welcome you all back – we are really looking forward to it. We just wanted to clarify a few things to put your minds at rest.

Nursery parents – you have all already received a letter confirming your start dates and times as these days are slightly different to the rest of main school.

Reception and Key Stage One – you are starting back on Tuesday 30th August, for full days – our doors will be open at 8.40 until 8.50 – we will have staff around the first few days to point you in the right direction if you’re not sure (if you arrive after this time you will enter through the main entrance and will receive a late mark). The school day ends at 3.20 and you collect your child from the same door which you dropped them off.

Children will need to bring a clearly labelled water bottle, also could we please ask that jumpers are labelled too. Anything else they need, we will provide.

Finally, PE days will be confirmed by your class teacher during the first few days and you will be added to your new class dojo pages too during that first week.

We hope you’ve all had a lovely summer and are looking forward to coming back.

We confirm that we will continue to support our school community by:

From 23rd March 2020, 

  • Keeping our schools open for the children / students whose parents work as ‘key workers’, defined by the government as NHS staff, Police and Delivery Drivers, more details to follow on this.
  • Opening the schools for children / students who have a Social Worker and/or Education, Health and Care Plans
  • Ensuring children / students who receive Free School Meals will be able to access the schools to collect a free Meal provided by the school (further details to follow from the schools themselves)

For children / students who have been asked to stay at home by the UK government, we can confirm that:

  • Our curriculum is now online for all children / students to access at home. 
  • Every school in the Trust will send details by the end of the week, on how everyone can access these resources
  • Every school in the Trust will have plans in place to touch base with their children / students throughout the closure period, they will communicate this to you

For those parents whose children will continue to come to school on Monday 23rd March, please could you support the schools by ensuring:

  • Your children / students wash their hands before they come to school and when then get home
  • You keep the communication between home and schools open via email, websites and phone calls 
  • Follow the government guidance on household self isolation 

Schools will continue to send out updates where the situation changes and for your reassurance and information.
