Sports Days 2021

Dear Parents/Carers,

As you will have seen from our previous blog post and diary dates on our website, our Sports Days are coming up next week at Croydon Arena:

  • Monday, 28th June 2021, 1pm-3pm for Nursery, Reception, Years 1-2
  • Tuesday, 29th June 2021, 1pm-3pm for Years 3-6

Unfortunately, given the current status of the pandemic and guidance issued by the local authority and the Department for Education, we are unable to invite parents to this year’s event.

You will be able to pick children up at the end of the day from either Croydon Arena or the school. Please contact your child’s class teacher if you wish to pick your child up from Croydon Arena – if you do not inform the teacher, we will assume you are picking up from school.

Please note, children will need to be collected at the following times, either:

  • 3pm @ Croydon Arena, or
  • 3:30pm @ school

In the event of heavy rain, we will cancel the planned Sports Day.

The staff will be taking lots of pictures and videos and posting these on the school blogs as the day goes on – please make sure that you sign up for your year group’s blog so that you don’t miss out!

Children will need a packed lunch on the day, but if they usually have school dinners, then a packed lunch will be provided in lieu of a hot lunch, so they can eat a picnic with their class before heading to the Arena.

Children will need to be dressed appropriately for sports, as well as appropriately for the weather (including hats and sun-cream if required), and please don’t forget to send in a water bottle (they will be able to refill these).  

We are asking that children wear their school house t-shirts if they have them. If you do not have a school house t-shirt, don’t worry, any t-shirt in your child’s house colour will suffice. If you’re not sure which house your child is in, please check with their class teacher before the day!

Some classes will need parent/carer volunteers on the day (only Years N, R 1-3). If you are willing to volunteer to help your child’s class with walking to the Arena and supporting them with the Sports Day activities, we ask that you fill out this Google Form to volunteer:

Please note that: we are required to limit numbers and so not all parents/carers who volunteer will be able to attend the event, you will be contacted before Friday, 25th June 2021 to confirm whether or not we need you to attend.

Please note that any parent/carer volunteers will be required to take a lateral flow test for Covid-19 on the day and will be required to wear a face covering and maintain social distancing.

If you have any questions, please contact the school office or your child’s class teacher, as they will be able to help.

Kind regards,

Heavers Farm Senior Leadership Team
