Dear parents, carers and guardians,
As we approach the last day of the summer term, I wanted to write to wish our Year 6 pupils every success for their future schooling, as they transition to comprehensive school. We are extremely proud of their achievements and our only disappointment is that we could not celebrate in the usual way, but we know they will flourish as they move forward into Year 7 in September 2020. If you have not already seen the Year 6 Awards Presentation, then please visit the link on the school website:
With regard to the return to school in September, I am pleased to inform you that we would like to welcome all pupils from Reception to Year 6, to return to school on Thursday 3rd of September 2020. We would ask that you send a packed lunch with your children for the first two weeks and this will be reviewed from that date. It is hoped that school meals will start back from Monday 14th of September 2020. Breakfast club and afterschool clubs will recommence when we feel we can safely organise this. We would like to offer the nursery pupils to join us from Monday 7th of September 2020, 8.50am to 11.30am and on a daily basis thereafter.
There will be much planning going into preparing for September. New operational plans, risk assessments and systems will be put in place to ensure we can welcome all pupils back safely. We will still be keeping up high levels of personal hand and surface hygiene; allocated toilets, staggered playtimes, and our one-way system, with adults, required to maintain social distancing at all times, on the school premises. There will be specific guidance available for you regarding the organisation, timings and arrangements at the beginning of term, such as drop offs and pick-ups etc. so I will write to update you all further when we return to school in September 2020.
We will remain prepared to revise plans and to work flexibly in order to respond to ever changing guidance and new situations. Your support has been greatly appreciated over the past few months and we look forward to working closely with you as we move forward with the return to school. If you have any further queries, concerns or questions then please do not hesitate to contact me on the school telephone or via my email firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope everyone stays safe over the summer holidays and we look forward to welcoming you back to school in the first week of September 2020.
