This term is drawing to a close now and we thank you for your kind messages of support and gifts. We have all pulled together and learnt new ways of communicating and working. We have a new vocabulary, a new normal! bubbles bubbles bubbles, ‘virtual’ everything. We have learnt how resilient, capable and independent our children are and we already knew how kind, thoughtful and caring they were. Our children can wash their hands thoroughly and flush the toilets – we have very sweet smelling toilets now. They can keep themselves and others safe and are fun to be with at all times.
We will be welcoming back Pacesetters, NMPAT (music service) and Hotshots in mid-September after cross-referencing all risk assessments e.g. NMPAT will bring in plastic screens to prevent any airborne projectiles from instruments. We will also re-open the OSC (Out of School Club) mid-September before and after school.
We will continue with staggered starts in September, which have been successful in reducing crowding and have kept the footfall flowing but also reduced traffic and parking issues. We will continue with the one-way system with no parking in the drop off zone allowing parents the room to leave the school site safely.
I will let you know further updates as we get more information.
Thank you everyone, keep safe and well and have a fantastic summer.
