I hope that you are all keeping safe and well. I have really been missing our weekly singing assemblies and choir rehearsals. Sing Up has been kind enough to offer a song a week that we can share with you. I really like this week’s and feel that it is very appropriate for our current circumstances. I would love to hear from you and perhaps some of you would like…
Good afternoon Parents and Carers, Friday 22nd May 2020
It has certainly been a “full on” few days!
We are now in a position to be able to welcome back those Year Six pupils from Tuesday 2nd June, for whom parents have requested a place and also continue to provide Childcare for our Key Worker and vulnerable families.
We genuinely look forward to seeing you all. All parents/Carers of Year Six who completed the survey on 20th – 21st June will be contacted by Mrs Milne using Class Dojo, explaining which “Bubble” your child will be in and also who their teacher will be, plus new timings for the day.
Ahead of this, I need to let you know school will feel and look different. There will be an increased level of signage reminding you about social distancing, hand washing, “Catch, Bin it, Kill it” and reinforcement around behaviour expectations for all – to keep everyone safe and well. Adherence to this is essential in order to remain in school please.
Please remember school is actually closed next week, as this is half term. No childcare is available during this week.
Childcare provision resumes on Monday 1st June
Year Six Teaching Bubbles begin on Tuesday 2nd June
Our Safeguarding policy has been updated in light of our anticipated return to school, and you can find this under the “Statutory Information” tab, “Safeguarding and Child Protection Link”.
Much consideration, preparation, and hard work has gone into ensuring our school is as safe as it possibly can be, in order that we can all return and become a whole school again. Please ensure you spend time talking to your children who are returning about what things will be like, but also why now is the right time. If you need a publication to help you with this conversation the following link might be useful and supportive: https://www.elsa-support.co.uk/back-to-school-after-coronavirus-story/?utm_source=mailpoet&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=new-free-back-to-school-story_90
Thank you for staying in touch, showing your support and working with us over the past few weeks. Whether you are returning or not, know that we genuinely miss you and look forward to the time when we are back as William de Yaxley – one and all.
The kindest of regards,
We see all our children as individuals and believe in nurturing the whole child. We strive to fulfil not just their academic potential but their personal, spiritual, social, moral and cultural development through an exciting and stimulating environment.
