Coronavirus Update Letter 03.04.2020

Friday 3rd April 2020                                    


Dear Parents,

Another lovely day with the sun shining and apparently more on the way. However, please don't let that tempt you to go out and about as yet again the daily death rate has risen, and we must all stay in to stop this virus spreading further.


FSM: Thank you to everyone who has responded to the text messages which were sent out earlier this week. Currently the vouchers for the infant school children are being processed as we are still awaiting the necessary information from the DfE for the junior school. We have logged a complaint but are waiting for a response as to why the junior school code has not been received. 


We cannot be sure when these vouchers will be with you but hopefully - very soon and if you have not yet sent in your email address for your e-vouchers…..it’s not too late!!  Please do so as soon as possible.


For those of you who are booked in with us for next week, please bring your learning packs with you.


The year 1 packs are now ready for collection. These will be available on Monday at the following times from the infant school reception.  Only 1 person at a time will be allowed in to collect their pack, and no children should be brought in with you.  If you have to bring children with you then they will need to remain outside whilst you collect the pack.  It is only a small reception area and we cannot adhere to the 2 metre distancing rule if there is more than one person in there.                                                                                     

Surnames A-C                      9.00 – 10.00 a.m.    

                                                               Surnames D-I                      10.00 – 11.00 a.m.  

                                                            Surnames J-P                     11.00 – 12.00          

                                                           Surnames Q-T                      1.00 – 2.00p.m.    

                                                           Surnames U-Z                      2.00 – 3.00p.m.   


Please note the slight changes in times/surnames - this is due to there being a lot of children in year 1 with a surname near the beginning of the alphabet and we didn't want you all arriving together!


As these next 2 weeks would normally have been the Easter holidays we should have been closing for 2 weeks, but we definitely are not! Both schools will be open and if you need any support, help or guidance then please ring in and we will do what we can. If you are a key worker and need emergency cover then please ring school to discuss your requirements.


It has been rather disappointing not to share Easter activities with the children but hope that you are able to share some activities at home with them.


Finally, I shall continue with my updates over the next few weeks but will reduce these to Tuesdays and Fridays but in the meantime please stay in and stay safe, it is staying at home that is saving lives, so please don't be the one to spread this virus or worse still contract it from someone else who has chosen to go out and about and disregard the very clear government advice. Help our NHS.


Wishing you a relaxing weekend.

With best wishes


Mrs Sheila Pape

Executive Headteacher
