Letter to Parents from Mrs Mcbeth 3.7.20

Friday 3rd July


Dear Parents/Carers,


I hope you are well. Here is an update regarding new information.


Yesterday we received the new DFE Guidance regarding school opening in September. We are delighted to say that as predicted school will be opening to all Year Groups in September. This is obviously fantastic news to us and I am sure it will be to you too. There are still lots of guidelines for us to follow not only regarding hygiene and cleaning, but also drop of and pick up times. We will obviously send you out more detailed information before the summer break, but what I can say is that amongst other things the timings of the school day will be altered very similarly to what they are at the moment which will allow a staggered start and ending of the school day.


I know you will be concerned about your child moving to new year groups and meeting their new teacher. Can I just confirm that for the first two weeks back after the holidays the children will remain in their current class. This will allow a settling back in to school period and also a planned transition to their new year group.


We also have updated information regarding Free School Meal Vouchers. Please note they will not be delivered weekly in the summer holidays, but in 3 instalments. The instalments will be as follows £30 on 22nd July, £30 on 5th August and finally £45 on 14th August. If you have any issues with your vouchers during this period please email and we will get back to you as soon as possible.


Your child’s report will be available this week. All children who are currently in school will receive their report to take home. All other reports will be available to pick up from the main office at the following times.  





Wed 8th




Thurs 9th  




 Fri 10th




 For the children who have unfortunately not been able to return to school there will be a postcard inside the envelope from their teacher with a little message. Obviously if parents have siblings in school they are able to pick up all children’s reports during one visit. Parents will also be offered the opportunity of a telephone call to discuss their child’s report should they so wish.


Just to let you know that the usual uniform rules will apply from September. Don’t forget you can order uniform online from Please make sure you order in plenty of time to allow for summer delivery.


We hope you have been enjoying our “Fitness Fortnight”. Check out the website for more activities in the following week. 


Can I please urge you to contact school if there are any changes to your contact details. We may need to contact you during the summer break so it is vital we have up to date details.


Please be assured that more detail around the opening of school in September will be communicated with yourselves before the summer break. Again thank you for your patience and support and I will continue to keep in touch.


Take care,

Mrs S. McBeth
