Dear Parents and Carers
I am STILL waiting for further information regarding the Bury Offer on summer schemes. I have spoken to our Coach Leon. Your children know him well. Leon was planning our school summer scheme but in light of the work on the drains he will be based at Bury Grammar School this summer.
The details of the BGS summer scheme is below. Just follow the link for information.
I have also been working with Mrs. Hardy to get an idea when Smarties can re-open in the Autumn Term. There is a lot to consider. All the children will be in their class bubbles and these bubbles must apply to Smarties as well. (You see the immediate issues of staffing, numbers etc).
Priority needs to be given to the safe return of our pupils. Smarties will re-open but this will not be until the middle of September at the earliest. I know that parents need to get back to work but the safe return of our children is paramount, whether it is in school or in Smarties.
As you will know, the children will work in their class bubbles and school needs to ensure that bubbles do not mix, where possible. St. Margaret's was built for 190 pupils. We currently have 243 on roll. I think you can appreciate the challenge of bringing back such a large number.
We will try our utmost to make the return as safe as possible for everyone. Your children have been missed and there is a strong desire to make things work in September from every member of staff and Governor.
I hope to see as many of you as possible before the end of term.
Have a lovely evening
