Dear Parents and Carers,
Due to the current Covid 19 restrictions we are sadly unable to host our termly SEND parent and carer ‘drop in’ sessions. Usually Parents and Carers are invited to come to The Den to speak to Miss Plimmer (our SENDCO) and Mrs Powell (Inclusion Manager) about their child’s needs and progress.
This term we are proposing that following your Parents Evening telephone call with class teachers in the coming weeks, you can request a telephone call from Miss Plimmer and Mrs Powell to talk specifically about SEND needs.
To request a phone call between 3pm-4pm or 4:30pm-5:30pm on Thursday 22nd October, please send an email requesting a time slot to Miss Plimmer’s SEND email address: email@example.com or ring the office and ask them to pass on the message 01952 387720.
Following on from Miss Cook’s announcement regarding PE kits, please can you ensure that children are wearing the correct PE kit in school. This should be a white tshirt and dark tracksuit bottoms/shorts. Please note that football shirts and skorts are not allowed. Thank you for your continuous support.
As you know, we constantly review our policy/procedure and change our practice accordingly.
We are struggling to find ‘bubble’ space for all of the different year groups to get changed for sports after school clubs, especially as we need to provide separate space for boys and girls in the older year groups.
As a result of this, we are going to ask that from tomorrow that children in Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 that have a sports club after school, come to school in their school PE kit. We can manage Year 1 and 2 children changing and therefore there is no need to alter anything for them.
The only item that will be permitted is a change of foot wear for eg. Football boots.
We understand that children like to wear ‘football strip’ type clothes for many of the clubs, but ask that they stick to the normal school PE kit please.
This new rule will not affect the gymnastics club and we ask that those children bring in their change of clothes as they normally do.
We are working so hard at trying to keep our ‘bubbles of children’ separate and we think this new rule will allow an increase in safety, but also more time for the children to enjoy the activity in the club.
As ever, thank you for your support and patience as we continue to do all we can to keep Covid 19 away from our school community.
Newdale Primary School and Nursery
Dear Parents and Carers,
Normally at this time of year, the classes are usually putting together wonderful work and practicing songs to share with you during our Harvest celebrations.
Due to the virus, we will be unable to celebrate Harvest in the same way this year and we are hoping that you will join us, in our alternative virtual arrangements.
Traditionally, we would be asking you to kindly donate items of food to share with families less fortunate than ourselves. This year, we will be asking you to donate any loose change that you may have and this will be donated to Telford Crisis Support. Our RotaKids group will be explaining what we are doing via video and this will be posted on the website, so please keep your eyes peeled!!
All the small change will be collected in collection boxes outside the school building. Telford Crisis Support will then tell us how many food parcels we have managed to fund.
We hope that you can join us in collecting for a very needed local cause this Harvest time.
More details to follow from our Rotakids.
Mrs Bishton and Miss Plimmer
Deputy Headteacher and Religious Education Coordinator
Reception used up lots of energy in P.E. They learnt about finding spaces and then played some spatial awareness and speed games as well as some games just for fun!
Don’t forget children are now allowed to come dressed in their kits every Tuesday and Thursday. They are looking forward to their first session with the coaches this week.
