I hope you had a chance to enjoy the snow at the weekend and maybe even got to build a snowman! We are now into week 4 of children being educated remotely and I am so grateful for all your support.
Please remember that you are not alone; we are here if you need us and we will do our best to help. We have had many conversations with so many of you worrying that you aren’t doing enough at home and that your child will be behind. You need to stop worrying! Whenever the children return to school, we will get them back on track. Right now you need to just keep yourselves safe (and sane!) and do what you can manage. Don’t forget to keep in touch with your class teacher so that they can support you as much as they can.
Non-screen days and Parent meetings
In the last week of this half term we are going to have Thursday (11th Feb) and Friday (12th Feb) as non-screen days. The children will be given a range of activities that they can do independently, without input from their teacher. This will allow the teachers to be able to have a meeting with each parent and child to review how things are going. For these meetings we will be using a new system called School Cloud and we will be sending out details shortly on how to book your appointment on this system.
Half term (Key worker and vulnerable children provision)
At present we do not know what will be happening over half term and the government has said that they will be making a decision during the week beginning 8th February. If your child is currently using our in school provision please start to think about child care for half term as we may be closed.
Free School Meals
If your circumstances have changed you may now qualify for free school meals. If you feel that you may qualify please call us and we can check online for you.
This is where we'll post all school news and updates. If you require paper copies of any information on our website then please contact Miss Lainsbury in our school reception.
