All Saints CE Primary School 4th sEPTEMBER 2020 Newsletter


A Message From Miss Prokipczuk and Mrs Palmer

It's wonderful to welcome you all back to the start of the Autumn term. We're delighted with how well the children have settled into their bubbles and their enthusiasm for returning to school. Our favourite part of the day is standing on the gate in the mornings and welcoming the children into school; their smiles are infectious!

Thank you for trusting us to look after and educate your children in these unusual times. We want to reassure you that the systems and processes we have in place are all working well. Let's just continue to be vigilant in the forthcoming days, weeks and months.

Welcome back - what a wonderful feeling it is to have our school family back together once more.

Here's to a fun-filled year of learning and playing!

Term dates

Following advice from the Education Welfare Officer, parents may be issued with a fine if they take their child/ren on holiday during term time.

Start and End of the Day

Thank you to everyone for your patience and understanding as we have tried to get to grips with staggered starts and ends to the day.

Thank you also for trying your best to practice social distancing as much as possible. Just a reminder that it is still paramount that we try and keep the school entrances and exits as clear and safe as possible. Please ensure you are not gathering to chat as you leave the site and try to limit pick ups/drop offs to one adult per family.

A Reminder Of Times

Drop off time has been extended. It is now 8:45-9:05 for Key Stage 1 and 2.

Pick up for Key Stage 1 is 3:05 pm

Pick up for Year 3/4 is 3:05pm

Pick up for Year 5/6 is 3:15pm

Please can we ask that you do not come early to pick up your children and again, that you move off site as quickly as possible, as we just do not have the room to have all parents socially distanced. Obviously, if you have siblings to pick up at different times then we understand that you will be on site for longer.


Forest School

Forest School has begun with Miss Carvell and Mr Troke. They have been working hard over the summer to complete training, risk assessments, clear the area and build exciting things like our fire pit!

We would like to have a collection of spare clothing and wellies in school so that we can make use of the area, whatever the weather.

If you are having a clear out, we would welcome donations of waterproofs, coveralls and wellies!

A big welcome to our new members of staff- Mrs Scola, Mrs Blurton and Mrs Cook who are now working in Key Stage 2.

A big welcome also goes to our newest All Saints Superstars- our Little Acorns!

Due to Covid restrictions, we will not be able to have you all on site to attend our usual, "Meet The Teacher" night. However, we are preparing some video presentations of the usual things we would run through on the night and to give you a quick update as to how the class are settling in. There will also be a class email address sent out, which you can email any questions specific to your child. Please look out for this information on your email in the week beginning 14th September for KS1 and KS2 and week beginning 21st September for EYFS (when the children are beginning to be in full time).


We are working hard to update our new website with content from each class. Teachers are currently completing their pages. We are aware that our old site hasn't closed down yet, and as a result, Google is having trouble finding us! Our new website address is www.allsaintssapcote.com


Please could any outstanding Ukeleles from last year be returned to school as soon as possible.

Happy Birthday this month goes to...

Aida, Inga, Elliot and Natalia in Little Acorns

Jake, Lewis and Noah in Year 1.

Arlo, Edwin, Nathan, Ella and Jessie in Year 2

Lacie-Lui and PJ in Year 3

Freya in Year 4

Enya, Ilia, James and Gracie in Year 5

Alfie-Jack and Layton in Year 6

We hope you have a lovely day!

Happy To Be Back


Our before and after school club, provided by Conkers is running. Conkers have put lots in place to ensure children remain safely in "bubbles". More information is below.
