Happy Half Term!

Dear Parents and Carers,

As we reach the end of this half-term, and we all look forward to a break in which we are allowed to meet family and friends again with the sun finally deciding to shine, it feels like a good time to celebrate all that the children have achieved.

The children have certainly impressed us all with their ability to keep themselves and others safe.  They are definitely helping to put the smiles back on the faces of the adults working in school.

Year 3 have been creating a puppet show, Year 4 fabulous hats for their mad-hatters tea party, Year 6 have been making amazing stop motion Dinosaurs and many more impressive projects – look out for the highlights on the year group blogs!

We are busy behind the scenes trying to arrange events in the last half-term for the children to enjoy safely.  However, we are mindful of the need to mitigate risks and for the priority to be able to provide education for all children, given how much they have already missed.

Obviously, we are all going to want to mix with each other over half-term and visit family and friends that we have been waiting a very long time to see. To mitigate the risks on returning to school we urge all adults to take (and report) lateral flow tests twice a week, to keep children at home if they are unwell, and to ensure that ANYONE showing ANY COIVD-19 symptoms gets a PCR test and to isolate until you receive your negative test result.

Any child showing symptoms who is NOT tested will need to isolate for 10 days along with any siblings in the school and all adults and children in the household.

We have had a look at what might be possible and, so far, we are planning on having the following over the next half-term:

We hope you all have a wonderful break with your families.

Best wishes

Susan, Jo, Attie, Robert, Rachel and Rob
