Dear parents/carers,  

Attached here is a first draft of our plans for September 2020. Please read through and share any questions, queries or thoughts with Parent Reps. This will be the main focus for discussion at the Parent Forum meeting next Wednesday.

News/announcement:  Government guidance for September arrived in my email inbox yesterday. We are busy reading through it and deciding what this means for our school. We will send out information for parents next week to help all families understand what September looks like for them.

Please continue to trust that we will put your children’s safety and happiness at the forefront of our decisions.

Kind regards

Lisa Radcliffe

 Free School Meals – Support for Parents

As you will be aware, the current crisis has had significant impact on the financial circumstances of many families.  As a result many more will now be eligible for free school meals and we are keen to make sure they get the support they need, both short term with meals / vouchers but longer term in terms of schools support via the pupils premium,  which can help with uniform, trips and afterschool clubs.

Free School Meals provision information can be found here.

 

Home Learning

Your child’s learning is important to us, so during the closure we’ll continue to support pupils by setting learning tasks via the school website.  Learning tasks will be posted by 5.30pm on a Friday for the week ahead by clicking on the relevant year group on the home learning menu option.

Home Learning letter to parents can be found here.

As a school, we would like children to have the opportunity to contact staff if they require to do so. Due to this, we have enabled children and staff to email via Purple Mash. If the children have any questions or concerns, they can use this platform to contact their teacher. Please let us know if you have any more questions.

 

Wellbeing

Supporting children’s emotional wellbeing and mental health is something that we take very seriously.  Please visit our Emotional Health and Wellbeing page for useful information that can be accessed to help and inform you of ways in which you can support your child at home.
