  • Welcome Back to School!

    Published 14/09/21

    Last year was another challenging year, but the children, parents and staff have been amazing and we thank you for all your support.

    Parent Survey

    Thank you to those who completed our parent survey. All those who responded said that their child is happy, safe and makes good progress at school. 100% of parents agreed that school effectively deals with bullying or that they have not had any experience of this. 100% of parents stated the school is well led and managed and 90% agreed the school responds well to any concerns raised. Comments raised are always useful, parents find communication via Class Dojo effective.

     Staffing

    The end of summer term sometimes means a change of staffing and we were very sad to say goodbye to Miss Wilson, Mrs Farrington and Mrs Pickering. We will miss them greatly and wish them well. Mrs E Ripley has joined GBA in Ladybird class, and Mr G Large has taken over our Year 5 class and is our Digital learning lead. We have also appointed three new Teaching Assistants: Miss K Campbell, Mr A Briggs and Mr D Godfrey. Additionally, we are happy to inform you that the Trust has appointed a specialist music teacher, Mr Greenwood, who will be with us on Friday each week, and will teach all pupils in KS1 and KS2.

    Covid Restrictions

    Following the latest guidance for schools, we have removed year group bubbles and staff, parents and visitors will no longer be asked to wear face coverings whilst on the school site, unless they choose to. We are, of course, still be encouraging hand sanitising and regular hand washing throughout the school day and will continue to provide good ventilation throughout the school site. From September, children who have Covid symptoms should still remain at home, get tested and follow the guidance after testing. If children display symptoms in school, we will continue to notify parents/guardians and request that they are taken home for testing. However, we will no longer be required to send home entire groups of children. Instead, NHS Test and Trace will organise contact tracing. The school will be notified of close contacts by this service. Naturally, we will inform you if government guidance necessitates any further change to these arrangements.

    Morning drop-off:

    All year groups now enter school through the main school gates next to the Pre-School. Please note that the classroom doors are open at 8:40am and school starts at 8:45am. Gates close at 8.50am. If your child is late for school, please bring them to the school office, where a member of staff will escort them to class as appropriate. Afternoon pick-up: From September, we have also returned to pre-Covid arrangements for the end of the school day. Gates are opened at 2.55pm and parents / carers will be able to enter the school site and make their way to an outside area close to their child’s classroom. Children are dismissed at 3:00pm. If anyone other than a listed contact is collecting your child, we need consent from a parent/guardian in advance. Please ensure that you have informed your child’s teacher and/or the school office. If we have not received consent from you, we will always call to check before allowing your child to leave with another parent or relative. If we have received written permission from parents, Year 5 and Year 6 pupils may be dismissed from school without a parent/carer present. For all other year groups, children are dismissed when a member of staff has seen the collecting parent/care.
