  • Covid-19 Reminder

    Published 19/07/21

    Dear Parents,

    I hope you’ve had a good weekend and enjoyed the sunshine!

    In response to some questions from parents this morning, I wanted to reiterate the message sent out last week regarding our current measures to reduce the spread covid-19.

    DfE guidance given last week clearly states, ‘If your school is still open at Step 4, you may wish to continue with [existing] measures until the end of your summer term.’ In accordance with this, all our current measures remain in place. This includes children working in bubbles and also the closure of bubbles in response to a positive case.

    At this stage of the year, different schools and local authorities are responding to the updated guidance in different ways, and you may hear different information about schools’ responses in the media and from family and friends. However, the legal advice we have been given makes it clear that our school can work for this final week of term in accordance with our existing risk assessments.

    We do expect things to be different in September, with schools being less responsible for managing Covid-19 – the NHS seem likely to take more of a lead for managing school infections from that point. We hope this means school life will be less disturbed by covid-19. However, guidance is ever changing and often late to arrive in schools, so we will give parents an update in late August regarding our September plans.

    Kind regards,

    Mr Cresswell

  • Covid Measures, wb 19/7/21

    Published 16/07/21

    Dear Parents and Carers,

    You will all be aware that the covid-19 guidance in England changes on Monday. Although many schools across the country close for the summer today, most schools in Nottinghamshire will remain open next week. Schools that remain open past the 19th July will need to continue to manage the covid situation amongst pupils and staff.

    Guidance received yesterday confirms that schools remaining open after the 19th July can retain existing covid procedures to help contain the spread of the virus, hopefully leading to fewer children needing to isolate at the beginning of the school holidays. As a result, adults on the school site should continue to wear a face covering and observe all other existing measures. Existing measures in school for pupils and staff will also be retained. As ever, your support with this is greatly appreciated and very important.

    The guidance is still be clarified as this update is written, so we will update you further next week if necessary.

    Have a lovely weekend and enjoy the sunshine!

    Kind regards,

    Mr Cresswell

    July 2021

    Dear parents and carers,

    As we near the end of the summer term and indeed the end of the academic year, we would like to thank you for supporting your school throughout the continuing pandemic. It has been a year very different to any other and there have been more challenges to overcome than any other in memory. Your Head Teacher, staff and governors have worked incredibly hard to organise your school so that it has remained open and at the same time been as safe as possible.

  • Late start on Monday?

    Published 09/07/21

    Your family may be planning on staying up late on Sunday to watch England’s first major men's football final in 55 years. If you are planning to let your children experience the match, we want to support you by offering a slightly later start time to school on Monday 12th July. We would rather have children rested and in school ready to learn rather than absent or grumpy!

    School will start at the normal time on Monday but children arriving up to 10.30 will not be marked late and will not miss any crucial lessons. Staff will be in school as normal.

    To help us with our planning, we would like ALL families to complete the dinner register here (please click to complete the form) BEFORE Monday – we won’t be able to prepare hot meals if we don’t have that information.

    Have a great weekend and enjoy the match - is football coming home?!
