Weekly Newsletter (Important Information)

Friday 21st May 2021

Dear Parents and Carers,

To help you navigate what can often be a long weekly newsletter, we have divided the newsletter into 2 sections; Section 1 is for reminders, information and dates and Section 2 is to share our children’s awards for the week.

School Pandemic Update We have still not been given any updates from the Department for Education as to when our restrictions can be lifted. This means we must continue with our existing arrangements including ‘year group bubbles’, the adjusted start/end of the day and requesting that adults wear masks on school premises (unless you are exempt). Thank you for your understanding and support with this.

Please ensure your child comes to school in the correct uniform. During the lockdown, we understood that it may not have been possible to buy some items of uniform but this should not be the case now. Thank you for your support with this.

Parent/Carer surveys
We would be really grateful if you would take 2-3 minutes to complete our parent survey. The survey closes after school today. Many thanks to those who have already completed a survey. Google Parent/Carer Survey

School Meal Holiday Scheme for May Half Term The School Meal Holiday Scheme will provide £15 per child to cover half term for eligible families. If you have previously received money from the scheme, you do not need to reapply; the money will be paid into your nominated bank account automatically by Thursday 20th May 2021.

If you did not apply during any previous application periods or were not eligible at the time, but your circumstances have now changed, please check you meet the eligibility criteria before submitting your application.

If you have any queries about the scheme, please call 01708 432020, Monday to Friday, 10am to 4pm, or send an email


Please return all Chromebooks back to the school on either a Monday, Wednesday or Friday. Thank you.

Our attendance for this week is 94.6% which is better than last week. Thank you and well done, especially to those children who came to school every day this week!
