Dear Carers and Parents,

We are very much looking forward to welcoming all your children back to school on Monday. The staff have been working hard to ensure we are all prepared, and by last Friday, all the tables, chairs and equipment were back in the correct places, and have been thoroughly cleaned. We are ready!

We will spend tomorrow sharing experiences from lockdown alongside allowing time for the children to chat to class friends they haven't seen in a while. The following weeks will have a focus on activities to help your children feel happy and safe in school plus the usual curriculum, with some little assessment tasks intermingled to identify any support needed. We are anticipating that with learning in and out of school matching so well, we will be able to carry on as normal. All work on Seesaw is still there for you and your child to recap on the areas the staff have covered so far, so please support them if they feel that they have forgotten anything.   

Our Year 6 pupils received notification of their secondary school places last Monday. I hope that you were all pleased with the allocations that you received. If you have not been sent the notification of a secondary school for your child or your child has not been placed, please contact the Warwickshire’s School Admissions Team. Please also make sure that you respond to your allocation by either accepting or declining the place that has been offered. Details of this would have been included in the information sent to you. Or check the link below for more information.

Thank you for your support last week in helping the children to enjoy World Book Day. It was fabulous seeing their faces in school as they tried to work out who the Masked Readers were, their favourite was the talking Wotsit – thank you Mr Lee!

Finally, well done to you all... carers, parents and children for reaching the end of what we know has been a tricky period, whether sending your children into a different bubble within school or supporting them in learning remotely. We have been incredibly impressed by the Exhall community in how you have all navigated this situation. We have had so many compliments from carers and parents about the level of support the staff have given in school and virtually, thank you, your recognition of our work buoyed us all, but please don't underestimate what you have achieved, you have been fabulous.

Be assured, the routines to keep your child and the staff safer in school remain in place as the threat of the virus spreading is still present. We look forward to seeing you all in tomorrow.

Adults, don't forget your face mask when collecting, please keep to dropping off at the correct times, and remember to socially distance yourself from others should you arrive a few moments early.

Thank you for your continued support, stay safe and well.
