Important Letter to Parents/Carers - re Last week of term - 23 June 2020



Dear Parents and carers,

Re the last week of term.

I hope that you are all keeping safe and well. As we get closer to the end of the summer term we normally arrange transition activities so that the children get a chance to meet and spend some time with their class teacher for the next academic year.

We would very much like to offer all children this opportunity and as such in the very last week of term (week beginning 13th July) we have organised a time for children in Years 2, 3, 4 & 5 to meet their class teacher. As children in Year R and 1 are eligible to come into school at the moment we have organised transition activities for them as part of their allocated days.

 As Mrs Dean is still currently shielding and not in school, she has kindly offered to provide a video message for her new cohort.  We would still like to offer Year 4 the opportunity come into school and chance to see their peers. We will shortly send out a timetable for Years 2, 3, 4 & 5 advising you of the time allocated for your child to meet their new teacher. Due to room restrictions and staff being unable to mix with more than one group a day, these sessions will be approximately two hours and the children will be split into small groups over three days.

I am sure that you will appreciate the need for all children to be given the opportunity to meet their new teacher and to experience school before the summer break. For this reason we will not be able to accommodate the eligible Reception and Year 1 children on the last week of term – 13th July/ 14th July and 15th July. We will be open to Year 6 on both the Thursday (16th July) and Friday (17th July) morning.

Provision for keyworkers will remain for those parents who have already booked a place. However, for health and safety reasons parents will need to decide as to whether their child will attend as a key worker child (for the whole day) or as part of their cohort transition group.  Government advice is that children will not be able to transfer from one group to another so will need to go home after their transition session.

If you have any questions or queries please do not hesitate to ring the office and they will happily help you.

Stay safe and well

Kind regards,

Mrs B. Davies & Mrs K. Jones
