Newsletter – 10th July 2020

As we approach the final week of this very different school term, our teachers have been looking at ways to help their classes share their memories of the year, just as they would if the classes were in school.  In last week’s video, your class teacher asked your child to send in a message (either as a video or photograph) about their memories of their time in class or even just as a message to their classmates. These messages are being put together by the teachers, along with messages of their own, to provide an end-of-year celebration of sorts for the whole class.


We really want to include all of the children so even just a short video message to their classmates, or a Love-Actually style picture with a message on a board, would be great (if they are camera shy, just a message will be fine). Please send in these messages to your child’s class teacher email address by Wednesday 15th July.


There is going to be a fair bit of information coming your way over the next week, so be ready for some not so light reading! We have been working through all the details in the government guidance for full opening in September so we will be able to give you the full update next week with all the start and finish times and the other procedures that we need to put in place to make sure that everyone is safe for when we return.


We are aiming to get Conkers Before and After School Club up and running again in September too, although it will have to work in a reduced capacity to start with to stay in line with the guidelines. We will give you the details of this next week as well.


Thank you to all who responded to our learning materials survey, it has really helped inform our planning. We will upload all of the material for each year group to the website on the home learning page and paper copies for those who requested them will be available for collection on Tuesday 21st July, 9am – 1pm from the school office.


11+ camp email confirmations have been sent out today. If you were expecting one and haven’t received it, please let us know so we can make sure you are on the list.


Thank you for your continued support.
