Latest update from the Newsletter:
Dear Parents and Carers,
We all hope you had a great half term and have enjoyed being out and about in the sunshine in recent weeks. We've had a great two weeks back at school with lots of exciting learning taking place.
As you will have heard in the recent announcement, Covid restrictions will not be lifted as hoped on the 21st and have been delayed by a month at this stage. In school, this means that our current risk assessment stays in place and there are no changes to be made. We have worked really hard throughout the year to ensure the safety of all of our children and families as well as our staff members and we will continue to work in line with the Department for Education and Government guidance.
As you can imagine this is going to make our planned transition activities difficult. I have held regular conversations with both the Infant school and Wyvern to make sure any transition activities happen in the safest way possible. However, the latest Department for Education guidance has meant that, unfortunately, we are not able to have our transition day on the 6th of July, as previously planned across all 3 schools, in the usual way. We are very keen to enable transition to go ahead in some shape or form, as this is such an important time for children to meet their new teachers and classmates and enable a smooth transition into their next year group. This is key for mental health and well-being and enables children to be reassured and feel confident and excited about their move internally or to a new school. It is another big change in what has already been a turbulent year so we will do all we can to make it successful. Therefore, we are making plans for an outside, socially distanced short internal transition activity on the 6th with back up plans for bad weather. Wyvern have a different planned transition date for the year 6 children that they hope will take place after the restrictions are due to be lifted and communication will come from them as soon as this is confirmed. I would like to take this opportunity to remind you that the Junior and Secondary school risk assessments are different as a result of different guidance due to age of the pupils, the school set up and the different contact tracing requirements. Therefore, transition will look different within our school this year to ensure our own school risk assessments are met and pupils, their families and our staff are kept as safe as possible.
The building work continues to go ahead as planned and is coming along nicely. The new entrance is not far off being completed. We are hopeful the new office will be operational within the next couple of weeks. When it is operational, we will communicate this to you along with any further information that may need to be included. This will mean that the office will be accessed via the entrance to the side of the school towards the Wyvern gym. Social distancing will need to remain in place to ensure the safety of all at this time. Throughout the remainder of the year, we will continue to encourage communication via phone call and/or email to the office rather than in person, unless absolutely necessary, for everyone's safety. Next, we will see the temporary car park on site turned into a sports court to provide further outdoor activity space for the children. All work is due to finish this academic year ready for September.
We have a busy end of year ahead with lots of exciting activities planned for the children. Please keep an eye on Oak Bites which is emailed out on a Monday and Wednesday each week which will contain any reminders for events/activities taking place.
As always, thank you for your continued support and please remember at all times we are here to help. If you have any worries or concerns do not hesitate to contact the school via phone or email. Any concerns will be directed to the relevant member of staff who will get back to you as soon as possible.
