Dear Families,

Welcome back to school for the final term of the year tomorrow. It will be nice to spend the next 12 weeks of school without interruptions -so that everyone can make the most of all the exciting learning that is planned. Please keep to the times agreed when dropping your child off tomorrow.

Y6 8.30am

Y4/5 8.45am

Y3 8.55am

 

If you would like brothers and sisters from different year groups to leave at the same time, this is possible, but one child will be leaving their classroom earlier. This helps with everyone exiting safely, and also to not distract the remaining children in the classroom, just let us know. If you’re waiting for them on the playground, please can you remember to wear a face mask and stay 2m apart.

 

Warwickshire has put this video together to help everyone keep safe.

Returning to school safely

 

Over the coming months we hope that as the country eases out of lockdown we too will be able to make positive changes to the systems that we have in place at school that will allow a greater freedom and an increased sense of normality. The teachers are excited about the months ahead, ready to support and encourage your children to make progress, please keep checking emails from the office for further news.

 

A lot of the media reports focus negatively on what has been lost and the damage that has been caused by repeated school closures and lockdowns. Whilst we are fully aware of the impact the past year has had, we are focussing on building what your children can do and ensuring they make the progress they are capable of. Learning is a journey, the road has had a few more twists and turns this year, but we’ve got around them together, and the voyage continues.

 

There’s a suggestion that the days ahead will have warmer weather, can you make sure your child has a water bottle in school.

 

PE

Following the first Covid lockdown we requested that children come into school dressed in their PE kit on PE days.

This practice is working well however we are noticing that not all children are wearing approved PE clothing. Correct PE kit is as follows:

· Plain black or navy blue tracksuit bottoms.

· School jumper or cardigan.

· Plain black or navy blue shorts or skorts.

· Plain white or navy logo t-shirt.

 

Bright coloured clothing or fashion clothing with logos is not acceptable PE Kit. We believe the right PE kit is smart, practical and contributes to a feeling of belonging to our school and its community. It also promotes equality, reduces comments being made about clothing choices and removes any perceived peer pressure to wear a particular brand. Staff will be monitoring PE kit worn more closely this term.

 

We look forward to being seeing everyone, tomorrow!

 

Thank you
