Welcome back!

Welcome back to a new term and I would like to say a huge thank you to our phenomenal children who showed great determination and resilience last half term. We have loved seeing them adapt to new ways of learning and have really enjoyed seeing their faces on our live sessions if they haven’t been in school.

For those who have been in school, thank you for brightening our days and making school as close to normal as possible. A big thank you also to parents/ grand-parents/carers for supporting the children with their remote learning – we know it isn’t always easy.  Hopefully, with infection rates reducing and numbers of adults being vaccinated increasing, the government announce that children will all be allowed back in school from the 8th March.

If they do announce this later today, I will send out another newsletter later in the week with an update/reminder of procedures in school for children returning.  Fingers crossed!

The attendance for this term, since September, is 96.8%. Under government guidance, these figures do not include those children who are isolating. On the left is a chart which shows how many children from each class have isolated and how many days have been missed and how punctual children are with the changes in time.

Arriving at school on time and good attendance are central to raising standards of pupil attainment and ensuring that your child reaches their full potential, and is especially important now with so much learning time being lost through Covid. Please try to make sure your children arrive at school at the appointed time.
