Dear Parents and Carers,
I am writing to update you about the current situation regarding COVID within our school community.
At present, we have one pupil in Y5 who has tested positive for COVID, which means that Y5 classes Bodiam and Hastings will not return to school before the end of term.
You will have heard in the news and certainly from many of the surrounding schools that there is a sudden rise in cases.
As a school, I feel that we need to keep to our current restrictions right until the end of term (even though many will be lifted on the 19th July) so that we can do all that we can to prevent the spread of the virus. This will mean continuing to wear masks on school site and only one family adult on the school run.
We will draw the winning tickets for the ‘Summer Hamper Raffle’ on Thursday 22nd July and notify you by phone so that you can collect your Hamper from outside the school office at the end of the day.
The Y6 Disco will still go ahead as they are a separate bubble.
Unfortunately this will mean that we will have to cancel the ‘Transition Day’ the ‘Stay & Play’ and the ‘Country Dancing Festival’. The children will still be able to perform their dances to each other.
We have exciting plans which I will share with you tomorrow regarding our return to school in September. We will include transitional activities as part of our curriculum when we return.
As always, please contact us using the firstname.lastname@example.org email.
