I hope that you are all keeping well. My love and prayers are with you all. The Staff are really missing the children and I’m sure the children are missing their friends, teachers, teaching assistants and daily routines.
A different Summer Term
Summer Term is normally filled with fun and exciting visits, our trip to Bristol Aquarium has just popped up on my phone from 2019. In normal times children would have made their First Holy Communion and Year 2 pupils would be getting ready to transition to join their friends in the Junior School. I have spoken to Mrs May, Head of the Junior School and she will be in touch with Year 2 pupils in the near future.
Optional Activities for Half Term
Today is Bank Holiday and this week is Half Term. After lots of discussion with staff, we have posted a new activities for children this week, however, there is no great expectation for children to complete this work. If you choose to relax and kick back and have a week of Family Time, then that is fine with us. However, for some the routine of school activities has worked to provide structure in the day and so for those families we have continued to provide activities for the holiday period.
Planning for Phased Return
With my fellow Headteachers we are liaising weekly with NPT Senior Management Team, to review recent developments, identify key issues and formulate possible solutions in preparation for a phased return to school. We have been assured that Senior Officers in NPT are working on guidance for areas such as movement around school/social distancing, transport and cleaning. NPT feedback is being shared with Welsh Government and we hope this will inform when and how we put into place a phased return to school. Three weeks notice will be given before any phased return. Thanks to all those who have completed the most recent parent survey. Your views are really important to us and will be fed back to NPT.
Well done to all who have been completing weekly challenges and also to those who have been working on reading and writing tasks Mum and Dad have been setting. Keep up this fantastic work. Remember you can access our reading scheme by using the login details sent at the beginning of Lockdown.
So looking forward to seeing you all.
