Welcome back to term 4. I hope you all had a super break and had time to enjoy being together, and a break from home schooling too. We had a real mixture of weathers over the holiday – so spring must be on its way! With it brings the hope we have for the future too.
Our worship theme this term is Trust. We look at what it means to trust in God and in others. ‘When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.’ Psalm 56:3
There is a small chance the snow will return. If we have snow then information on closures will be through Wiltshire BBC. If you don’t listen to the radio station you can check their website for details too.
Morning Drop Off
Drop off is continuing to work well but the impact on the parking surface was showing so we have had some of the parking surface topped up over the half term. We will continue to receive cars from the road as this is helping to keep the parking side in good condition. Thank you for your help in making this work so well.
Collecting from school
It is essential that when you pick up your children you leave as soon as you can and do not let children play together on the field. The Government have stated that.
It isn’t just the mixing in school that is the issue, but the potential for increased risk on the way to and from school and outside the school gates.
We desperately want the infection rate to continue to drop and need everyone to help this happen. Please help us work towards making it so all can enjoy school full time but at the same time keep everyone safe.
When you arrive at school and leave please could you be careful not to step on the daffodil s making their way through now – it is so good to see them that it is a shame if they have been trampled on before they have chance to bloom.
Parent Evening Telephone calls
We have decided to move the Parents Information sessions to the end of this term w/b 22nd March. We are hoping that we can all return soon and felt that it would be more helpful to do it when you are all back and we have had time to see where the children are. These sessions will be by telephone as last time. Details to follow.
Netton Class’s refurbishment is almost complete but we are not quite there yet. This means Netton Class are still in the hall. I know Mrs Higham and Mrs Clifford are planning a party for when you are all back in your brand new room – it looks fantastic !!
Coats Hats etc….
It is essential that children come in coats, gloves and hats too in the cold weather. Please make sure they are named so we can reunite them with owners if they get lost.
Teams and Live Session Protocals
As a staff we have had a good chance to reflect on teaching remotely and how well it has worked over the first term. We have put together a protocol which is attached for using Teams and live sessions for users to adhere to and make sure we keep all our school users safe. Please read it through, share it with your children and return a signed copy ASAP. Hopefully we won’t have to do this for very much longer.
