8 March 2021 - Return to school information from Mr Talbot
1 March 2020
Dear Parent / Carer
Returning to School
I am delighted to say that the school will be opening fully on Monday 8th March 2021. We are excited and relieved that the government has said that it is safe for all children to return. It has been a long and challenging few months for everyone and it will be fantastic to start getting back to some degree of normality.
I wanted to start this letter by congratulating you all. I am fully aware that home schooling has been a huge challenge and during this LOCKDOWN there has been a much greater pressure on you for your children to continue with their learning. Despite so many challenges, you have been brilliant and we have been really impressed with the work that has come in. We particularly enjoyed some of the videos on Seesaw!
We have spoken to many of you and we know just how tough this has been. Many parents have told us that they have not been able to complete anywhere near as much work as they would have liked with their children. Please don’t worry too much, once the children are back in school we will do everything we can to ease them back into full time education and to help them catch up.
Attached to this letter is a list of all the main points you need to know about your children returning to school. I appreciate that you will probably have many more questions but I hope this answers the main ones. I am sure we will continue to see more changes as the weeks go by so please keep a look out for more parent mails. If you have any other questions please do not hesitate to contact the office; we are all in school preparing for the children’s return and will be happy to speak to you.
My biggest concern next week is around crowding at the start and the end of the day. Please make sure that you stick to the times for your child’s year group and ensure that only one person drops off and collects.
We cannot wait to see you all next Monday!
