Parents of children in Nursery, Reception, Year 1, Year 2 and Year 3
Thank you for your co-operation in making the drop off and pick up times a safe and orderly part of the day.
In response to updated government guidelines, we are making a slight change to the drop off arrangements in the plaza to ensure social distancing is adhered to and to avoid groups gathering for longer than required:
- Please do not enter the plaza before 8:45am
- Arrive as closely to the allocated time as possible
- Send your child straight to their teacher’s line
- Leave the plaza as soon as your child is in line
There will be a 5 minute ‘window’ after which your child will be marked as late.
New drop off times:
|Nursery||8:55 – 9:00|
|Reception||8:50 – 8:55|
|Year 1||8:45 – 8:50|
|Year 2||8:45 – 8:50|
|Year 3||8:45 – 8:50|
Once again, thank you for your continued support in making sure we keep our community safe.
Our breakfast packs have arrived through the National School Breakfast Programme, and all the children will be bringing their pack home. This will include cereal, bagels and porridge to provide enough breakfasts for 2 weeks. These will continue to be delivered fortnightly.
We have had lots of positive comments about the changes to the academy lunches this week, and the children have been enthusiastic about the range of choices available.
The children have started bringing their reading books home on a Monday to read at home. Please can they be returned on a Friday with their reading record to change for a new book. Remember reading at home can take many forms such as comic books, menus, song lyrics, even favourite DVDs or games with subtitles on the screen!
It would be most helpful and protect our books if children have a book bag to transport their book to and from school (see the uniform page for details of how to order).
All the children in the academy have participated in a project equipping them with the skills and techniques to draw their own self-portrait. We have a wonderful range of work, and the children made such progress over this short project.
Thank you to everyone who has returned information forms. Please return any outstanding sheets to the academy please as soon as possible so our records can be updated. We also need your consent for children to participate in the new Lexia program.
