Unfortunately we are having issues logging into our online banking. We have been told this should be resolved within ten working days. Online payments made into the ASC/Nursery account in December can not be accessed by us therefore we are unable to credit payments onto the January invoices. This months invoices will be printed in mid January.
If you would like to make a payment before you receive Januarys invoice you are welcome to ring the office where we will be able to tell you how much your child’s/children’s fees for this month will be.
Parents who pay by child care vouchers are not affected and will receive their invoice on time.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Dear Parents & Carers,
Happy New Year! Let us hope that 2022 is a lot less stressful for everyone than 2021 seemed to be.
All staff are in school today completing a full day training programme on our new phonics scheme, Read Write Inc. After this, they will be completing final touches getting classes and lessons all ready to welcome back your children tomorrow. We are all looking forward to welcoming you all back!
As you will not have failed to realise, Covid continues to interfere with our ‘normal’ operations in school. It is important that we do all we can to keep COVID out of our school community and we ask for your support once again.
If your child is displaying of the main COVID symptoms (Loss of taste and / or smell, high temperature, persistent cough), they should isolate at home until a negative PCR test has been confirmed. We would encourage you to be alert to the precautionary symptoms identified by Telford and Wrekin council and consider getting them PCR tested to rule out a possible COVID infection. Many of our most recent cases have come from pupils where there were no symptoms or where the symptoms were precautionary. More information on these can be found via Do you have main COVID-19 symptoms or other symptoms? – Do you have main COVID-19 symptoms or other symptoms? – Telford & Wrekin Council
To book a PCR test for you or your child, please visit
If your child has been identified as a close contact of someone who has tested positive for COVID and they are aged between 5 and 18 years old, you are strongly advised to take a Lateral Flow Test (LFT) every day for 7 days. By doing this, they are able to attend school provided no symptoms appear or a positive LFT is recorded. We are allowed to use our reasonable judgement in allowing your child to return to school. You can order LFT tests online or by checking with a local chemist if they have stock.
To order LFT tests, please visit Order coronavirus (COVID-19) rapid lateral flow tests – GOV.UK (www.gov.uk) and to find where has LFT tests to collect, please visit Find where to get rapid lateral flow tests – NHS (test-and-trace.nhs.uk)
One of our greatest fears is staff absence due to Covid infections. Our staff will continue to LFT test at least twice a week, observe social distancing and wear face masks in communal areas. We will continue to use the control measures set out in the January 2021 guidance –
- Ensuring good hygiene for everyone
- Maintaining appropriate cleaning routines
- Keeping classrooms and teaching spaces well ventilated
- Following all local and national guidance, including that provided by our local Health Hub.
One of the last actions we want to take is moving year groups to remote learning. Please rest assured this would be a last resort for us and if the case is that we need to move to remote learning, we have systems in place to allow this to happen with no interruption to learning.
We appreciate that there is a lot to take in and that guidance changes frequently. We will always put the safety, wellbeing and education of your children first and thank you for your continual support.
If you can get your children tested this evening or in the morning using a lateral flow test, that would really help us in keeping more control of the virus.
Happy New Year 🥳
We are so looking forward to welcoming everyone back for the beginning of an exciting new term. We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year break.
We are starting a brand new topic all about Space, which is sure to be exciting!
Children in Reception are invited to bring in their favourite toy (possibly a Christmas gift they are proud of) to share in this terms show and tell session on the first day back after the holiday Wednesday 5th January 2022. Please clearly name the toy, and avoid electronics or anything with small parts as we would hate for anything to get lost or broken.
We cannot wait to see and hear all about them!
Enjoy the last day of the holidays, and see you all on Wednesday morning.
Here are our updated Reception PE times for the Spring Term:
