Dear Parents and Carers ,
thank you for your understanding this week when your children have been taught by a supply teacher. We have had a few members of staff who have needed to be at home as their own children’s classes had been shut in other schools. The usual class teacher leaves the planning for the lessons that need to be taught, so the children are able to continue with their learning. Please bear with us as we continue to try to keep every class open.
As you know, Mrs Bowles is due to have her baby in February. In line with medical and Union recommendations, Mrs Bowles will need to shield from 28 weeks. Her last day in Pevensey Class will be on Wednesday 2nd December. Mr Wynne will be teaching the class in place of Mrs Bowles for the last two weeks of term, with Mrs Horrex teaching her usual days. The children know Mr Wynne as he has been covering in this class on a few occasions this term. We have appointed a lovely experienced teacher for the actual maternity cover. We will welcome Mrs Sarah Duymun in January 2021. Mrs Duymun will be with us for 3 terms, until 31st December 2021. Mrs Duymun will teach on a Monday and Tuesday, with Mrs Horrex kindly increasing her days to Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
BREAKFAST & FOOD BOXES FOR THE CHRISTMAS HOLIDAYS
Rev Richard and our local Church have kindly offered to make up ‘Breakfast, Food and Personal Hygiene Boxes’ for any family that may need them for the Christmas holiday period. Please email us using the firstname.lastname@example.org email. Mr Hughes and I will then be able to organise this for you. Please state which food box or boxes you will need.
We have thought carefully about how we can celebrate Christmas in school and let the children have the fun that they would have in normal times! Please read the attachments to see what we are going to be doing ! It will be different this year but we think that the children will enjoy what we have got planned for them. Some parents have asked about gifts for staff, that can still happen as the gifts can be quarantined by the school staff. We finish our Autumn term on Friday 18th December at the usual time.
Have a great weekend and we look forward to seeing you on Monday.
