Happy Friday everyone!
I cannot believe it is July already, this year has really zoomed in. It has been another challenging year in terms of the pandemic and disruption to education, but school has remained a busy place of learning and the children have continued to thrive.
Thank you for working with us to ensure your child gets the most from their time in school and for all the additional things you to do support our staff team.
It is disappointing that we have been restricted in the ways in which involve families in the life of the school, I do miss seeing you at Good Work Assemblies, school fairs, sports days, shows and special events. It is my sincere hope that we will soon be able to open our doors once again to you all and return to a more familiar school calendar.
July is a very busy month in the school year. We have some much to do to ensure a suitable closure to the academic year. This is especially the case for our wonderful Year 6 students who have been so resilient over the last 18 months and are coping so well with an unusual transition to their secondary education. We are also planning for the new term preparing for adaptions to our curriculum which we will share with you soon.
There are no changes in terms of the teaching and learning staff for next year, and as such, you should be confident that if your child is moving classes, the new teacher already has a good knowledge of your child and transition should be a simple process. If you have worries about your child moving to the next class, please contact their current class teacher.
A few of you have asked whether the school will still need to use 'bubbles' in September 2021. The simple answer is that I don't know. I may not have the full information until early September, as I am sure it will depend on national and local cases of coronavirus and the vaccine roll-out. As soon as we have information we will communicate with you, so I advise checking your email during the holidays, so you don't miss any school updates.
Enjoy a lovely weekend - Come on England!
