Headteacher News

- Please remember to park considerately and safely when dropping off or collecting children from school. We have received complaints that vehicles have parked in the Greyhound Pub and would like to point out that this is private property which is not available for school use.

- It remains extremely important for health and safety reasons that children are collected punctually from school. Please try to be punctual, as children from different bubbles waiting in the same area increases the risk of virus transmission. Thank you.

- Thank you for continuing to observe social distancing whilst on the school site, as this continues to be essential in our attempts to recover from the pandemic. We have noted that there is a particular pinch point on the path to the school gate and are reviewing our risk assessment. Please be considerate towards other families and ensure that they have sufficient time and space to traverse safely. Children from different social bubbles should still remain 2m apart at all times.

- We have all enjoyed the hot weather this week and have spent lots of time outside. Please remember to put suncream on your child before they come to school so that they are protected during the day. They should also have a hat and water bottle with them.

- As you will have seen from Mr Sibley's letter, we are awaiting further guidance from the government regarding catch up programmes for children in the autumn term. We are also awaiting confirmation about school closure during the summer holidays. Currently, our plans are that school will close to all children (including those of Key Workers) from 17th July.
