2nd Autumn Half Term

I hope everyone is enjoying a restful half term break – despite the rather wet weather!
This is a quick reminder that the term starts for children on Tuesday 2nd November (tomorrow is a PD day).
The good news is that we can come out of the Step-Up Measures that we were in before the half term break – so we will be operating normally again.  This means now that all children access school via the main gates at Reception in the morning, and leave via the Top Gate at the end of the day.
We have got the updated bus lists, and for children on these lists, we will assume that children are going home on the bus unless you notify us otherwise.
Swimming will start again on Tuesday for Dragonflies and Scorpions, and Care Club will return to operating in the GP room.  School meals will also return to normal in the school hall.
It is still important to follow the current guidance with regards isolation and testing:

Self-isolate straight away and get a PCR test (a test that is sent to the lab) on GOV.UK as soon as possible if you have any of these 3 symptoms of COVID-19, even if they are mild:

  • a high temperature
  • a new, continuous cough
  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste

We are also still required to send children home to book a PCR if children present with any of the above symptoms in school.  We appreciate the inconvenience, particularly at this time of year when coughs are common – but we have to be consistent and are unable to diagnose coughs.

Please can we remind you of the importance of sending your child in with a warm, waterproof coat every day, as we do endeavour to ensure all children get a break in the fresh air as much as possible – rain or dry!
As always we really value your support and co-operation, and we will endeavour to continue to be as informative and helpful as we can – please do follow the school website for information (School News, Class Information, Class News) – as these are our main sources of information.
We will be holding Parent Feedback sessions in the week beginning 15th November – these will be via phone calls again – so please watch our for booking forms which will be sent out shortly.
If you have any questions please do contact us,
