Masks on school grounds
School have received a message from the DfE stating ' At a time when further easing of restrictions has been paused, the current system of controls should continue to be implemented in education and childcare settings'.
Can we therefore once again request that any adults entering school grounds wear a face covering. We know that not everyone wants to do this, and are frustrated by the different rules for various events, especially when spectating sporting events, but we ask this to keep all our community as safe and protected as we can.
Classes for next year
We have been asked by a couple of families about the arrangements for next year and when we will be letting children know which classes they are in. School are currently recruiting a couple of teachers to join the team in September and the classes that they will teach will be based on their skillset. As soon as these positions have been filled we will then be able to share with you how the classes will look and who the class teachers will be.
With the current COVID restrictions, we are limited to the options we have available for transition as it is essential that we maintain our class bubbles. We hoped that restrictions would have been lifted but as we know this is currently not the case.
At the moment (and again this may change with any new guidance from the Government) we are looking to have two full days of transition on the 19th and 20th July. This will mean that there will have been 48 hrs between when pupils were last together on the Friday so will be able to form their new class bubbles the following Monday.
Timings for the school day for the next academic year
We are still waiting for guidance from the DfE and the Government about this, however we are hoping that there will be no need for staggered starts. We will of course confirm this as soon as we are able to along with the timings for the day.
Beat the Street - SQP style
All the packs have been distributed and the location maps have been uploaded to the school website. Children are already coming to us saying where they have been and some of the answers to the questions (but being quiet so no one else hears their answers).
Good luck everyone, have fun and stay safe.
