Dear Parents and Carers,
We have had another busy week here in school as we have begun to return to our normal curriculum timetable. Our classes still remain in ‘bubbles’ as per our Risk Assessments. The children have been really good at continuing to follow the routines in place. We have had some really positive responses from the children about being back in school. Please find some of the responses attached.
DROP OFF AND PICK UP
Please can you remember to continue to follow the arrangements that we have made for parents/carers coming to our school:
- ONLY ONE ADULT PER FAMILY
- MASKS MUST BE WORN UNLESS YOU HAVE PROOF THAT YOU ARE EXEMPT
- ADULTS SHOULD NOT BE JOINING UP IN GROUPS ON OUR SCHOOL PREMISES
- PLEASE DROP OFF OR COLLECT YOUR FAMILY AND DO NOT WAIT FOR FRIENDS ON THE SCHOOL PREMISES
- CHILDREN SHOULD REMAIN WITH THEIR ADULT AND NOT RUN AROUND AND POTENTIALLY HAVE CONTACT WITH ANOTHER FAMILY OR CHILDREN FROM ANOTHER BUBBLE
ARRANGEMENTS FOR THE LEARNING REVIEW MEETINGS
The online booking window for these meetings opens on Monday 22nd March. The instructions are within the ParentMail that you have received this week. We are going to be meeting with you face to face rather than on Zoom. We are planning for these meetings to be outside. Only one adult per family will be able to attend and masks must be worn. We will send out a questionnaire on Monday for you to complete in preparation for the discussions with the class teacher. We hope that you will find these meetings helpful as we look forward to planning effectively for the children’s learning.
We have begun our Forest School sessions again this week. It has been necessary to make some changes to the original rota due to Lockdown. Our new rota is attached.
We are delighted to inform you of the safe arrival of Raffy Samuel Bowles earlier this month. The Bowles family are enjoying their time together with their new addition.
Mrs Bayliss unfortunately is unwell. Mrs Filby-Aubrey, who has been teaching in Southsea class this week, will continue to be their teacher next week as well. The learning that will be happening will remain consistent with Pevensey and Portchester classes as normal.
Mrs Hewson, one of our lunchtime supervisors, is also unwell. Members of SLT are carrying out her role as she recovers.
Please keep these members of our school family in your thoughts and prayers.
Have a lovely weekend.
