Message from Miss Parker 2nd July
Thank you to all of the Reception and Year 4 pupils who came in today for their class photos (taken individually). It was lovely to see many of you and even nicer to see your faces light up when you saw your friends. Lots of you have really grown!
I am pleased to say that the DFE guidance today has confirmed what a full school return will look like in September. For us in school, much is already in place with provision to date, some of this will be scaled up and replicated in September just with larger groups, but we are confident that we can work within the wide parameters that have been issued.
All children will be expected at the moment to return to school full time. It would also appear at first glance that before and after school clubs will be able to run as per the guidance so far. I will share an update as to how this might work when it has been risk assessed.
I will work over the weekend and the start of next week with senior staff on arrangements and logistics and be ready to communicate these to you towards the end of next week, if not earlier.
Finally a big well done to our Year 4 children who collected their Leavers Bibles and awards from school after their photograph. We are sorry you haven’t had your proper moment to mark your time in church and I hope you will get involved with the photo and video opportunities that have been shared to celebrate your last year with us. The Year 4 staff and I look forward to seeing you all on Monday!
It is apt that today was for YR and Y4 pupils, as many of the Y4 parents will testify the first days at St Nicholas feel like only yesterday and now their children are at the point of transition. It was lovely that a small group who started school together, replicated their first day of school photo today as a group and I thought I would share.
Thanks all for a lovely day.
