I hope you are all enjoying the lovely weather- fingers crossed it will last for a while. The children are certainly enjoying using the outdoor area for learning.
I have a few reminders and some information/news for parents:
We are delighted that numbers of the virus are so low. However, we do not want to relax our routines and processes too soon, especially given the new Delta variant which is giving some concern. Given this, I need to remind parents that the wearing of masks on school grounds is mandatory, unless you are medically exempt and we may need proof of this. As things stand we do have a very small number of parents who have informed us that they are medically exempt but a lot more who are not wearing face coverings. Some of our children are living with people who are still vulnerable and we want to ensure the safety of all our school community. The vast majority of parents are supporting us with this but we do need 100% support. As a last resort we could refuse access to adults who are choosing not to wear a mask- we really don’t want to do this!

Pupils arriving late
Please sign your child in at the main office if they are late to school. This is important for safety reasons, to ensure they have lunch and to make sure you don’t get a phone call to ask where they are from office staff!
This will be closing soon and we would love your views. The link for this is: https://forms.office.com/Pages/ResponsePage.aspx?id=Ug4_TzS3ZEGUCRtgHRR5k80RKNmy-2dNkjDB5qGCmN9UMlFMS1JVSDQ1SEtSUEFNODk5RUJCUFNBUyQlQCN0PWcu
