Executive Headteacher Appointment



Dear Parents and Carers

First and foremost we hope that everyone in our school community - our pupils and our families are keeping safe and well during this difficult period. We have missed being able to see you all in school every day and we are really looking forward to September when our schools will be able to reopen to all year groups.

The Autumn term will be a time for a fresh new start for all of us and we know that everyone will be full of energy and enthusiasm for the future. With this in mind we have some fantastic news for you: we are truly delighted to announce that a new Executive Headteacher has been appointed to lead The Learning Federation schools.

Mr David Denchfield will be joining us in November 2020 and brings to us a wealth of skills and experience which we are confident will be a real asset to our schools and enable our children to flourish and overcome the challenging circumstances that we have all, as a nation, experienced this year.

David is very much looking forward to getting to know you all and meeting your children later in the Autumn term and will be sending his own personal message to you.

We wish you a safe and enjoyable Summer and will keep you fully updated with future news and developments

To make sure you are ready, here is a list of equipment you will need (if you don't have the exact same thing then use your imagination!):
  • Monday: markers (can be literally anything), tape measure or a ruler
  • Tuesday: marker, a target (bucket, large saucepan, washing up basin, etc), throwables (small beanbags, balled up socks, or anything throwable that doesn't bounce much), a spoon (big enough to hold an egg), a hard-boiled egg (or small ball).
  • Wednesday: random objects to make an assault course, sacks (pillowcase, bin bag etc).
  • Thursday: space to dance, a music player, 4 markers, timer 
  • Friday: an empty plastic 500ml water bottle, a table, a stick (short broom, cricket bat etc).
At the end of the week, you can submit your results to us and we will announce winners from each class. Make sure you take lots of photographs and videos to share with us, we can't wait to see you having fun! Stay tuned for more details to follow!

Update on wider opening of school

Dear Parents/Carers,

Following the Prime Minister’s announcement in May regarding the wider opening of schools, Mead is now welcoming back children from Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 6. The school continues to cater for children of Key Workers and children deemed vulnerable.

To make sure that the children and staff are able to social distance when appropriate, returning children are in allocated bubbles of no more than 10 children. To enable this, each year group has allotted days and times. I would like to thank all parents and carers for supporting the school while we were setting up the systems to allow for wider opening and in following all of the guidelines when bringing children back into school. You have helped to make it a very smooth process for everyone.

To make sure we can continue to plan effectively, the school will not be taking any further children after 6th July, your last chance to request a place will be 1st July 2020.

Please note that the last day of term is Friday 17th July 2020.

Earlier this week, the Prime Minister announced that in September all children will return to school. The school is currently waiting for guidance from the Department for Education to find out how this is planned to happen and whether we will still have to plan for social distancing etc. I will let you know as soon as I have further details.

Thank you again for your support,

Mrs L Smith
Headteacher

Letter to Y5 Parents/Carers from Hornchurch High School

Dear Parents/Carers,

It is coming up to that time of year when you will be starting to think about secondary school choices.

Here at Hornchurch High School, we usually invite our Junior School partners up for activity days, competition days, tours and taster lessons. Unfortunately, as you are aware, these are on hold for now but we will resume these when we are able to.

In the meantime, if you would like to come to the school and meet with a member of the senior team, we are holding socially distanced tours with opportunities to visit our new building and world class sports facilities. These are available to you between 10am and 1pm, Monday to Thursday each week between now and Friday 17th July.

If you are interested in coming in for a tour, please email publicity@hornchurchhigh.com to book an appointment.

We hope to see you soon.
Kind regards,
Mr James Lynn
Assistant Head Teacher

Possible reopening of school to Year 5 pupils before end of summer term

Dear Parents/Carers,

As you know some of the year groups have started to return to school on a part time basis. We have followed the government guidelines and have reopened to pupils in Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year. Of course we also continue to provide provision for all our vulnerable children and those of key workers as required by parents.

Having ensured the school is safe for these children we are looking at the feasibility of bringing our Year 5 children back for the last few weeks of term. You know your personal situation and your child best and as a parent/carer it is your choice whether to send your child back to school at this particular time. Please be assured that you will not be fined if you consider that the safest place for your child is to remain at home.

We need your help and your opinion!

I want to reassure you that we are not going to be pressuring anyone to send their children to school. In order to assist us in planning for reopening it is essential for us to know if your child will attend. Once the school has an indication of numbers we can put together a plan of what having our Year 5 will look like. You can tell us your opinion now by completing this form.


As with our other year groups:
  • We will limit class sizes - pupils will be in groups of no more than 15 therefore they may not be in their normal friendship groups. Pupils will remain in the group that they are placed in for the duration of their time in school and will not mix with other groups.
  • It is highly unlikely that your child will be in their usual classroom
  • Children may not have their normal teacher or their normal support staff
  • The curriculum will vary and will be reduced with limited availability of resources
  • We will be staggering break times, and pick-up and drop-off times to avoid adults gathering at school
  • There will be regular supervised hand washing routines in place for pupils and hand sanitizer will be made available
  • We will increase cleaning in school before, after and during the school day.
  • We will strictly be keeping pupils and staff with coronavirus symptoms at home. If your child displays symptoms they will need to be collected from our isolation room immediately
  • We will be limiting access to the school for all parents and visitors and will prefer that all communication will be via email and telephone 
Sadly, I am sure you will understand that I cannot eliminate the possibility that your child will be exposed to the virus whilst at school and I cannot guarantee that pupils will maintain a social distance from each other at all times.

We would like to thank you for your continued support in helping your child learn from home. If your child will remain at home, we will continue to support you and them with home learning. Please do continue to stay in touch with us about how your child is getting on.

Warm regards,

Linda Smith             Alan Kemp

School reopening update from Local Authority

Councillor Robert Benham 
Deputy Leader of the Council 
Cabinet Member for Education, 
Children & Families 

London Borough of Havering 
Main Road, Romford, RM1 3BD 

email: CouncillorRobert.Benham@havering.gov.uk 

Our Ref: Date: 22 May 2020 

Dear Parent / Carer,

Coronavirus (Covid-19) – Phased Reopening of Schools 

I hope you and your family are safe and well at this difficult time. Thank you for your continued support to the national response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Being at home with your child(ren), and supporting their continued learning alongside your own work will be a significant challenge at this unprecedented and worrying time.

Many of you will have heard the Prime Minister setting out the government’s position that, as well as schools continuing to being open to vulnerable children and the children of critical workers, a phased re-opening of schools could begin from 1st June at the earliest. This would begin with pupils in nurseries, reception, year one and year six.

Secondary Schools and Alternative Providers will also be planning their approach to offering some face-to-face time for pupils and we are working with Special Schools on their plans to increase gradually the number of children and young people on site, again from the 1st June at the earliest.

The government is clear that all arrangements will remain under regular review, and will happen only if the level of new infections continues to decrease among other conditions.

We are working with schools to support their plans for a gradual and phased reopening. A full health and safety risk assessment, taking in to account staffing levels and their physical capacity on the school site, will guide their plans. 

The safety of everyone in the school community is the most important thing for us in all of this. We all want to get more pupils back into school as soon as it is safe to do so because school is the best learning environment for our children. However, in supporting schools to re-open in a phased and gradual way, the first priority to consider will be the health and well-being of all pupils, their families and school staff. 

Although all schools are working hard to respond to the guidance sent by the Department for Education, some primary, infant and junior schools may not be able to offer full time provision for the relevant year groups, and any new arrangements may not be introduced exactly from the 1st June. Each school will need to think carefully about the guidance and respond to its own individual circumstances. 

With any return to school, there will be noticeable differences. Children will be in smaller groups to reduce the risk of infection and they may not be in their usual class group or classroom or with their usual teacher. The curriculum will also be different as in order to prevent the spread of the virus not all resources will be available. 

How children may attend school may also change. The return may be staggered with other year groups being brought back at different times. Children may not be able to attend every day, and the timings of the school day may also be changed to avoid parents congregating and putting themselves at risk. Home school activities will still be planned to children continuing with home learning. 

In all of this, all school attendees – parents and carers, pupils and siblings and staff – will need to continue to observe all guidance about infection prevention and control, including the regular handwashing regime that was in place before the closure. 

Schools will be talking to you about the offer and response that they are able to make based on the health and safety risk assessment that they have completed. 

It is not compulsory for parents to send their children to school at this time, and I am clear there will be no penalties if you choose to keep your child(ren) at home. All schools will continue to provide a home-learning offer to all pupils not accessing support on site, and will keep in regular touch with the families of all pupils, whether or not they are attending school. 


I assure you that Havering Council is working closely with all our schools to offer a consistent and safe response to the proposed plans, and the health and safety of children, their families and staff remains everyone’s first priority during this period. 

If you have any questions regarding this letter, please do contact your school in the first instance. 

Thank you for your continued co-operation at this time. 

Kind regards, 
Cllr Robert Benham 
Deputy Leader of the Council Cabinet Member for Education, Children & Families

                                                                                                                                             22nd May 2020


Dear Parents and Carers,


As you are already aware, the Government have announced their aim to open schools more widely from 1st June. This wider opening is for Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 in Primary schools. The wider opening relies on the five key tests set by the government, including the rate of infection is decreasing and the enabling programmes set out in the Roadmap are operating effectively (Actions document, 11 May 2020).


Schools have continued to receive guidance and information documents since the announcement because of the many considerations which are required in the current situation with the Coronavirus outbreak.


We have been working very closely with the Local Authority and Head teachers from the schools of Harold Hill. We are making arrangements together so that we all do the very best for our schools and wider community.


Schools are still waiting for further information to open more widely for our youngest children and the announcement to indicate whether the five key tests will allow for wider opening is planned for Thursday 28th May. For these reasons, we have made the collective decision that schools will not be able to open widely on 1st June. This week, the media have reported that this was a date that the government has indicated schools should work from.


A detailed message for the most considered wider opening will be shared as soon as we have received the information we need to do this. Each school will intend to inform communities of the protocols and arrangements they are planning at the beginning of June.


We greatly appreciate your support and patience as we navigate this challenge together as a school and wider community.


Best wishes and stay safe.


Yours sincerely,


Mrs L. Smith                                  Mr J. McLucas

School Reopening



Dear parents/carers,

Re: Possible reopening of school to more pupils in June

As you know the government has requested that schools reopen to pupils in Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 from 1st June if it is judged safe to do so. This judgement will be made based on data collections of current infection rates and the spread of Coronavirus in the community. Of course we continue to provide provision for all our vulnerable children and those of keyworkers as required by parents.

It is a very unsettling time for us all, but rest assured that we are going to be doing everything we can to make sure we are ready to receive these year groups if it is safe for our school to reopen. However you know your personal situation and your child best and as a parent/carer it is your choice whether to send your child back to school at this particular time. Please be assured that you will not be fined if you consider that the safest place for your child is to remain at home.

We need your help and your opinion


I want to reassure you that we are not going to be pressuring anyone to send their children to school. In order to assist us in planning for reopening it is essential for us to know if your child will attend. Once the school has an indication of numbers we can put together a plan of what reopening will look like. You can tell us your opinion now by clicking here to complete this form.

Please submit this form for every child in your family who are in Nursery, Reception, Year 1 or Year 6 by no later than Monday 18th. Thank you very much for your help and cooperation, it is very much appreciated.

We are creating a detailed action plan that we will share with you as soon as possible so you know what changes to expect to our school routines and procedures as we work towards reopening. The safety of your child and our staff will be a priority at all times and I can also advise you that:
  • We will limit class sizes - pupils will be in groups of no more than 15 therefore they may not be in their normal friendship groups. Pupils will remain in the group that they are placed in for the duration of their time in school and will not mix with other groups.
  • It is highly unlikely that your child will be in their usual classroom
  • Children are unlikely to have their normal teacher or their normal support staff
  • The curriculum will vary and will be reduced with limited availability of resources
  • We will be staggering break times, and pick-up and drop-off times to avoid adults gathering at school

We would like to thank you for your continued support in helping your child learn from home. If your child will remain at home beyond 1 June, we will continue to support you and them with home learning. Please do continue to stay in touch with us about how your child is getting on.

We will keep you updated once we know more about as and when schools will be able to reopen for other year groups.

New Reception parents




Dear Parent/Carer


Children starting school in September 2020


I am writing to welcome all families that have been offered a Reception place for their child at Mead Primary School. Thank you for choosing Mead. We look forward to your child starting their school journey with us in September and getting to know them as the wonderful individuals that they are!


As a school, we are committed to smooth and timely transitions that allow each child to settle in, get to know their teachers and make new friends. We believe parents and carers play a key role in this transition so you too can feel reassured that your children are safe and happy. I can only imagine that during this time of uncertainty, the natural worries and anxieties that occur when children are about to start school are increased. As we don’t know how long school closures will last, it is difficult for us to publish details of our usual transition programme. However, please let me reassure you that we are planning ways in which we can prepare your child and give them the best possible start to school.


Starting school is a milestone for both you and your child. It is a time to be celebrated. Whilst we understand that current measures make this more difficult, we will do everything we can to ensure it stays that way and is a positive experience for everyone. We will be in touch over the summer term to inform you of our plans, but we also have to be prepared for plans to change should new guidance from the government be released. Please keep an eye on our website and Facebook, where we will update you with regular information regarding our school: www.mead.havering.sch.uk


At Mead , we aim to build an excellent relationship between home and school. Whilst this may start off as more of a virtual relationship, this remains a priority for us. Please do not hesitate to contact us should you require any further information – our contact details are below.


We look forward to meeting you all in the coming months.


Sincerely


Mrs L.Smith

HOME LEARNING


                                                 
                                               
Massive congratulations to those pupils who were able to complete their weeks learning this first week of the Summer term.-Very well done to you!
These are unprecedented times and I am aware of how difficult it is for parents to take on the teachers role-although I am reliably informed some of you have done really well dishing out the detentions!!!!!

Happy Friday!



School closure information


Dear Parents,

We hope that you are all well and keeping safe. 

As you would have seen on the news we now know the lockdown is to continue for at least another 3 weeks so we want to make you aware of the provision we are making for your child. 
As most of you already know EYFS and KS1 children can access tasks on the internet through Classdojo and KS2 through google class room. It has been so pleasing to see the results from you using this provision.

Under normal circumstances the children would be returning to school this coming Monday 20th April but as this is not possible teachers will be setting tasks on a daily basis though the online classrooms. We take our responsibility to educate your children and support our families seriously and hope you will encourage your children to complete the tasks so as far as possible they stay on track with their learning.  

For those that are unable to access the online classrooms learning packs are being prepared which will be available for collection from school on a Monday. We hope you will encourage your child/children to complete the work prepared and return it to school when you collect the next pack.

We know this is a difficult time and that most of you are not trained educators so hopefully this will help keep your child progressing with their learning. 

As you may be aware Miss Bloom is doing an amazing job with her 'story time' for our younger children -As of Monday I will be doing story time for our older pupils via facebook at 2:30 every day- hopefully your children will be able to join me.

In the meantime Good Luck and Stay safe.

Kind Regards
Lin Smith

A big thank you to the staff!



The Local Authority were approached by the Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospital NHS Trust (BHRUT), requesting support as they construct visors for front line NHS workers, due to current shortages.

Having heard about this our amazing staff at the Learning Federation came into school today; set up a sterile environment and began to make the personal protective equipment.

They are working continuously to support the community and make a difference to the NHS.


Thank you staff!

Rainbows of hope at Mead



Today the KS2 children showed their support by making rainbows of hope. We have put these at the front gate and are hoping to make more when we can.


We hope you like them as much as we do!

                                      


Go kart fun!

This is what Miss Pountney got up to today, how are you keeping busy?



Keep busy and keep safe from all at Mead.
