BACK TO SCHOOL - MONDAY MARCH 8TH!
I am writing to you following the Prime Minister's announcement on Monday that schools will be fully reopening on Monday 8th March. You are aware that I had put arrangements in place to add additional bubbles to the school so all children could return regardless but I am pleased to say these will now not be necessary and we will be returning to our Procedures and organisation from September.
We will be running the same timings as in the Autumn term which worked very well. Drop off will be from 8.20-8.55 am and pickup from 3pm-3.15pm. We will not be operating after school clubs for the remainder of this term. Parents should continue to leave the school site as soon as they have dropped off or collected in order to ensure continued social distancing.
We cannot wait to reopen and have all the children back on site. We will be continuing to operate class bubbles for the time being and will be keeping the teams working with the children as static as possible.
I want to take this opportunity to thank you all so much for the immense efforts you have taken in keeping our children as on track as possible and for keeping in contact with us throughout this time. We now need to request that all work completed during the lockdown period be brought into school as this will form a key part of your child's portfolio of learning. I am aware that many of you will want to know whether the work has kept the children on track and so have requested that the teachers share this information with you during your parental consultation meetings next term.
Having been in an excellent position to review the children's work which has already been shared with us, I can see our children have been working very hard to keep up the high standards we have in place, especially with their writing and Maths. The fantastic portfolios will be returned to parents at the end of the year which will give us ample time to add the key pieces to the work which has been completed in school.
Again, there is a lot of press around the plight of this generation of children and the toll on their learning. Please know that the work your children have been producing counteracts this argument considerably, whilst they have missed out on the social aspects of school and this will be a key focus on our return, our children have continued to learn throughout this time.
Thank you again for all of your support during this difficult time and we look forward to seeing you all again on Monday 8th March.
