Newsletter - Friday 1st July 2022

1 July 2022 (by Vicky)

Dear Parents/carers,

What a great week we have had. The children, and some parents/carers, have enjoyed taking part in sporting activities all week. and have a great time, hopefully feeling fitter too.

We have been so lucky with the weather until today!

Apologies that the Colour Run had to be cancelled but for health and safety reasons it could not go ahead. We have rescheduled for Friday 15th July – same times apply, weather permitting of course.



Unfortunately, we have continued to see an increase in COVID cases across school this week. Please be vigilant with your children. Sickness seems to be the main symptom at the moment.

The children, if testing positive, they need to stay in isolation for 3 days and then they are allowed back to school providing they are well enough. This is now recorded as an absence not as a special case but we must still be informed when your child is poorly with COVID.

Showcase events

Remember that over the next couple of weeks your child’s year group will be sharing their learning from the Summer Term project.

These are as follows:

Nursery – Wednesday 13th July at 9:15 or 2:30 – Entrance C
