Mrs Carson has chosen four children to be Well-Being Ambassadors to be outstanding role models around school and to help other children by listening to problems and helping to restore friendships when people have a falling out. They will also lead games for children who might not have anyone to play with and try to ensure that everyone is happy in school. Once they have completed their induction they will be recognised easily as they will have the option to wear bright yellow t- shirts.
It is unlikely that we can hold face to face Parents’ Evenings in school this half term. Therefore, we will be contacting all families to arrange a telephone consultation. This will allow you to discuss with your child’s teacher what you would normally want to know at this time of year. The consultations will take place over a two-week period, w/c 12th and 19th October, and further details will be provided shortly.
Every week the Senior Leadership Team reviews the Covid systems we have in place to see whether they can begin to be relaxed. This week the children have been able to use lunch boxes again. Disposable lunch bags are still very welcome as they tend to be easier to store and it reduces the amount of items being transferred from home to school. We are working very hard to keep school a safe place so we can remain open. Already 339 schools across England and Wales have closed or partially closed and we want to avoid this. Every decision we make is taking longer than usual as we need to ensure it is the correct way to move forward. This week we are looking at school dinners, as we are conscious that the weather will be getting cooler. I have spoken to ’Educaterers’ and they are going to introduce fish and chips in a bag every Friday starting on Friday 25th September. I am also in negotiations to start hot dinners in the hall when the time is right
