Dear Y6 Parents/Carers,
Firstly thank you to all parents who bought in their Y6 children to school this morning. It was lovely to see all the smiling faces- we have missed you all very much!
Overall, it was a very smooth and happy start to term 6. The new entry system of through the car park worked well. I also appreciated each bubble group coming in at their allotted time. This ensured that there was a steady stream of children and parents walking towards the drop off/ pick up point- all socially distancing.
The children were obviously a little nervous at first but were clearly excited to be back to see their friends. Although the school was not as they would have remembered it, they took on board the regular necessities of hand washing, sanitising and keeping 2m apart. They relaxed quickly into their routines and enjoyed being back with their teachers, friends and learning.
I have had some requests from other Y6 parents wanting their child to start attending tomorrow. The answer is no. We will be sending a text out every Tuesday to Y6 parents not currently attending but wishing to start the following week. If you want your child to start attending, please reply to this text message (MOB: 07540686882) by 5pm on Wednesday. Your child will start from the following Monday. We need this time to organise the additional classrooms, resources and staffing for the extra bubbles. Please remember that the provision is Monday to Thursday.
For example, a text has gone out this morning to Y6 parents. If you want your child to attend (from Monday 15th June) please reply (MOB: 07540686882) with your child’s name by 5pm on the Wednesday. If you are keeping your child at home, please do not reply.
Please do not turn up at the school wanting your child to start immediately. This will to be possible.
Thank you for your understanding with this and we look forward to see more year 6 children in the coming weeks.
