Wednesday 26 August
I hope you are all well. I was in school today and several staff were there too, getting ready to welcome you back to your classes. I feel that as we approach the new term there are more and more things to tell you. I will be in touch more regularly now to answer questions and tell you of any new / additional arrangements. None of us have faced a new term like this so please be patient and try not to worry. We are all here to support each other.
Lunchtime arrangements: For the first three days all the children will have a packed lunch. This is not ideal but I want to get the children back into school as a first priority and 'test out' our risk assessment. From Monday 7th September it is our aim to have the school kitchen up and running with a full menu, including hot meals.
No child who has opted for a school lunch needs to bring their own. If a child has opted for packed lunches from home then this will continue as normal.
Children will be doing PE so please get their kits ready. It will be useful to keep an eye on class pages on the website so that if there is any extra guidance from your child's teacher; you are aware of it. This will be particularly true for the youngest children. (Keep an eye on Tapestry for Reception children).
The guidance around wearing masks in school is changing constantly. AT THE MOMENT the recommendation is that children under 12 do not wear a mask in school. At this point in time, if a member of staff feels more comfortable wearing a mask, say for health reasons, then this will be permitted following discussion with me.
I am sure there will be many further questions to answer. Again, please try not to worry. We are here to help.
Have a lovely evening,
Mrs. Perry x
