INFORMATION & USEFUL LINKS

7.7.20 – School reports and next year

All children (FS2-Y6) should have received their school report by the end of today. Please reply to your child’s class teacher by the end of tomorrow (Wednesday 8th July) to confirm that you have received the report and to request a discussion, if required. If you are unable to view your child’s report via e-mail, please contact your child’s class teacher to request a paper copy.

Details of your child’s class name and teacher for next year will also be in the e-mail. Please note that, as numbers have allowed, there will be no mixed year groups across school next year. There will be three classes in each year group, all of mixed ability, and there will no longer be a Pearl or Crystal class. The new class names are Azurite (Year 1), Tourmaline (Year 4) and Ivory (Year 5).

If you have any further questions, please direct them to your child’s class teacher in the first instance.

 

 

3.7.20 – Children’s belongings 

During the summer holiday the school will be deep cleaned. There are some children’s belongings still in classrooms (including book bags, uniform, toys, lunch boxes, water bottles, PE kit etc.)

Please phone school to arrange a convenient time to collect anything belonging to your child. Anything that has not been collected by the end of term will be disposed of. If your child is in Y6 and would like their exercise books to keep, please contact school.

School Closure

We always aim to provide a full education programme, but in these unprecedented times we are following guidance from the DfE and Public Health England.

Following government direction school is now closed. You may have seen a few children in school today – these are the children of key workers who have no one to look after them during the day at home.
