The sunshine of the past two days has certainly lifted everyone’s spirits. Let’s hope that we get more of this over the Easter break.
It has been lovely for everyone to see the children settle so quickly back into a routine and to enjoy their learning and of course see their friends. We really do hope this positivity continues when children return on Monday 19th April.
The Telford and Wrekin Covid figures thankfully still remain low and are continuing to fall. Clearly the news in Europe is worrying and we watch and listen to developments and still plan to remain cautious when we return.
The one way system will remain in place as will the expectation that parents wear face coverings on our site at all times please. All of our in-school procedures will remain the same; however, we do hope that guidance will allow some easing of this over time. It is really important that you follow the school procedures. When we are able to ease them, we will let you know as soon as possible.
It is important that you let us know if your child/children have a positive Covid test during the first 3 days after we have finished school. Therefore any test result that comes in up to the end of Sunday, is relevant to us and track and trace. You would need to email school on firstname.lastname@example.org or text school on 07765147868 to let us know and immediately let the Health Protection Hub know using this link https://www.telford.gov.uk/info/20692/coronavirus_covid-19/4040/i_want_to_report_suspected_or_confirmed_cases . Fingers crossed we do not have to inform families and staff to self-isolate over the Easter holidays.
Teachers may well have set some activities / homework to do over the break. What we know is that one of the most valuable activities you can do is to listen to you child read or encourage them to read to themselves as often as possible. This reading time develops the love of reading, supports children’s ideas for writing, secures spelling and of course helps children learn new words.
Can we remind you that we do not allow ‘exteme’ hair cuts and ask you to please consider carefully the style your child has. In our policy we state that extreme shaving and patterns should not be cut into hair please and neither should applying hair dye. This includes closely shaved lines into hair.
We hope to be able to offer more events and activities as we move through the summer term and will of course keep you fully informed.
As always, we really do appreciate the support we get from our families. Have a great Easter.
