If your child is currently attending school, their report will be sent home on 10th July. If your child is NOT in school, there will be the opportunity to collect their Year 6 reports along with old school books and any belongings that were left in their class, on Tuesday 14th July between 11:00am and 12:00 or between 1:00pm and 2:00pm. Please wait outside the hall doors and ring the delivery bell once you arrive and a member of staff will come out to hand them to you.
For all children currently in school, their end of year reports will be sent home with them on the 10th July.
If your child is not currently attending school, we will send reports home with a sibling or post them out to their main home address.
Separate arrangements will be made for those children in year 6 who are not attending: details for this will be emailed out to parents.
If an additional copy of the report is required by a parent who does not live at the child’s home address, you must contact the school office on 387720 to make a request by no later than Monday 6th July.
Please ensure that you keep your copy of the report safe, especially if your child is in Year 5. Some secondary schools (such as Thomas Telford) require a copy to be sent with the application for Year 7 places and we will be unable to make further copies for you once they have been archived.
We have decided to offer leavers T-shirts to our Year 6’s similar to the example below.
The design includes children’s names on the back incorporated within the 20 logo.
The cost per T-shirt will be £6.70 and we have set up payment for this on Parentpay.
There is an extensive range of colours available, please refer direct to the website https://www.actifwear.co.uk/tshirts/kids-cotton-t-shirt-colours.aspx to make your choice.
Please ensure you add in the notes your choice of colour and size. T shirts are available in:
XS S M L XL
To ensure the supplier has enough time to produce and deliver the T-shirts before the end of term, orders must be received by Wednesday 10th June. If you do not want to order a T-shirt but would like your child’s name included in the design, please call the school office on 01952 387720 before 12.00 on Wednesday
Year 6 Team
Please see the following message from Vicky Ford MP for the parents of children with SEND, particularly those that have an Education and Health Care Plan (EHCP).
As ever, the document is asking Parents to consider whether their child’s needs can be met at home safely. This is to keep as many children as possible at home during this time to help reduce the transmission rates of Covid 19.
Our teams are continuing to work tirelessly to ensure we are as prepared as we can before school closure.
If you feel your child would respond well to a regular routine whilst they are away from school, please see below of an example of how you could structure their day.
This is just a suggested timetable for you to use, clearly this is only for you to use if you would like to.

Dear Parents / Carers,
We are still awaiting the list of who qualifies as a key worker. Thank you to all of those families who have returned their forms already.
We are now required to ask you what your partners job is, as we are being led to believe that in order to qualify for a school place, BOTH parents need to be in Key Worker professions. Please note that we may require evidence of the role you play and how that fits the description of a Key Worker.
Please could you return this information to school as soon as possible, if you have not already done so, to help us to continue to plan.
Thank you for your support
Re: Coronavirus update – school closure to most pupils
As you will already know, we have now been instructed to close the school to almost all children after this Friday, until further notice.
As advised by the government, we will do all we can to stay open for the children of key workers (e.g. NHS staff, police, others in frontline services) and children with certain needs.
We are waiting for the government to publish more information on what this means and exactly who this applies to. We will let you know shortly, as to how to let us know, if you believe your child falls into one of these categories.
All other children will need to stay at home, so we ask that you do not send your child into school from Monday onwards unless you have received notification from us.
Please note that this is a national closure – so while it is a challenging situation, we are not alone. We’ll re-open fully as soon as we can and will let you know when this is.
Home Learning –
Your child’s learning is of course important to us, so we’ll continue to help your child to learn.
Teachers have been and continue to be very busy organising ‘Home Learning’ for your children.
Today there will be a suggested timetable sent out for you to use, clearly this is only for you to use if you would like to.
Your child’s teacher will inform you as to how communication will be managed. In the majority of cases this will be digital, but we know there will be exceptions and that will be arranged separately.
If your child usually receives free school meals we will also be in touch with more information about how we will continue to provide this, with support from a scheme that the government has just announced.
This is as much as we know right now and we appreciate your continued patience with as we deal with this ever-changing situation. We understand that this latest news will have an impact on you and your family and it’s far from ideal, but we’ll continue to keep in touch with any updates as the situation develops.
As you can imagine the office staff are under enormous pressure trying to answer as many questions as they can.
We will undoubtedly get a lot more information from the Local Authority today and in the meantime are very busy planning how our partial opening and home learning offer will operate.
We ask that you trust that we are doing our best under very difficult circumstances and that as ever, we have children at the centre of all of our decision making.
And remember: if you or your child feels ill and you want to know what to do next, please use NHS 111 online.
Thank you again for your continued support, and we will be in touch with more information when we can.
Dear Parents and Carers,
This year’s World Book Day will take place on Thursday 5th March.
As usual, we are all looking forward to seeing your child dressed up in costume as one of their favourite book characters. Teachers cannot wait to get involved too!
The World Book Day website has lots of ideas on how to do this with as much or as little effort as you would like. There are some excellent ideas to get you started: https://www.worldbookday.com/dressing-up-ideas-2019/ and https://www.worldbookday.com/ideas/dressing-up-gallery/
However, children are equally welcome to come to school in their pyjamas all ready for a bedtime story if they prefer – just remember to bring their favourite book too!
As always, your child will receive a £1 book token to spend on a FREE book, or to save £1 on another full price book of their choice.
Full details are available at www.worldbookday.com where you can see the fabulous books that are on offer this year.
Many thanks to those of you who have already sent in photographs of your children reading in all sorts of strange and wonderful places!
Lots of children take part in some wonderful, varied sports outside of school and we would love for them to celebrate their achievements with the other children and staff (no matter how big or small). Mrs Goodwin has been busy creating an achievement board where children can share certificates, pictures or medals with a small write up about the event. If you would like to send anything into school to be included, you can either pass on to the class teacher, or e-mail us at email@example.com
