Dear Parents/ Carers,

I am delighted to say that school will reopen tomorrow as planned. We are now confident that the site is safe and the school has a working fire alarm. Staff cannot wait to get the children back into school and learning. Please read the housekeeping arrangements below:

  1. The site may still be a little muddy, we have cleaned the paths as much as possible but the bad weather has meant this has been a bit of a challenge.

  2. The children should enter the playground down the usual path which is now between the Portakabins and line up as usual in their normal lines. Year 6 will line up with year 4 and 5, outside the KS2 entrance. To access the reception, please follow the sign on the gate. Myself and Mrs Neal will be out early to greet you all tomorrow and direct you if required.

  3. Please be aware that we don’t have as much space in reception as we did so we ask that all money is sent in to school with your child and class teachers will ensure it reaches the office safely. Also, if you collect your children on time from clubs rather than coming early, it will mean you aren’t left stranded in the rain if there isn’t room in reception.

  4. Breakfast club will start tomorrow as normal. Please take your children to reception and then Mrs Hewlett will escort them to Mrs Silk in the small hall.

  5. After school clubs will begin again next week.

  6. School dinners:

    Thursday- Roast Turkey and cornflake tart and custard.

    Friday- Spaghetti Bolognese and apple sponge and custard.

  7. Please bear with us while we get our phone system up and running. You can ring reception as usual but we don’t yet have the facility to transfer calls so if you need to talk to myself or another teacher, a message will have to be taken and we will call you back.

Christmas Celebrations

During the final two weeks of term, we will be enjoying:

  • Christingle celebration

  • Christmas parties

  • Christmas dinner (9th December)

  • Christmas Jumper and/or bobble hat day for Save the Children and the

     NSPCC (4th December)

  • On Thursday 17th December at 4.00pm there will be a carol service at St Luke’s church where our school choir will be singing.

Unfortunately, we are unable to go ahead with our usual Christmas productions for parents this year for a number of reasons. First and foremost, I am concerned that the children have missed a significant amount of education and practising for the productions would mean they’d miss even more. Also, time is now limited so we would be unable to prepare something in time and finally, due to restricted access to the building, we would be unable to run them without contravening fire regulations.

Thank you once again for your understanding and support and I look forward to seeing you and your children in the morning J

Yours sincerely,



Miss Gemma Bradford
