Dear Parents/Carers 

I am very pleased to return to school and would like to thank all of you for your personal messages of support to me. I would also like to thank Miss Staplehurst and Mrs Cavie for all they have done to maintain the school during this 'very different' start to the academic year.

The school risk assessments are working effectively and the children have settled in very well - particularly the new Busy Bees Class. Thank you to you all for supporting all our new arrangements.

If you have anything you wish to raise with me, do please email the school office and I will reply as soon as I can. The email is:

Take care

Below is a returning to school story that you might like to share with your child.  

Social Story

In addition, the Government have produced a short document with regards to what parents need to know about their child/children returning to school:  

Returning to primary school: what parents need to know


Shortly, your teacher will be sending home a letter which details your child’s curriculum coverage for Term 1.

PSHE coverage for Term 1 will focus on a Recovery Curriculum looking at emotions, resilience, friendship and self-esteem in light of the Coronavirus pandemic.  

If you have any questions or queries, you first point of contact is your class teacher who will be available at the gate during drop off and pick up times. Additionally, Miss Staplehurst and Mrs Cavie will be available, this includes if you wish to raise any safeguarding concerns. Please arrange contact through the school office.  

We are looking forward to having the whole school back together again for the start of the new school year.
