It’s been lovely to see the children ‘shuffling up’ and enjoying the afternoon in their new classes. After 3 years, it’s another of the school routines which we have very much welcomed back as part of ‘normal’ school life!
We do hope that you feel confident and well-informed about supporting your child in their transition to the new school year. Please do contact teachers if you have any outstanding queries before the end of term.
We are obviously very mindful of the weather forecast for the beginning of next week, including the warnings about the very high temperatures. We are receiving ongoing updates from both the DfE and our local health protection team and will keep you updated as appropriate.
We will ensure that we make any necessary changes so that children are as safe and comfortable as possible, including limiting the amount of vigorous activity that they do and, when outdoors, keeping them in as much shade for as long as possible.
Please could we ask the following:
- Children come to school wearing their PE kits on Monday and Tuesday, which will be lighter and cooler than their usual school uniform.
- Children have a clean water bottle in school so that they can keep well hydrated throughout the day
- Please apply sun lotion before school and, if sending sun lotion with your child to reapply during the day, ensure that it is clearly labelled with their name and that your child can apply it independently and appropriately.
With thanks, as always, for all your support,
Mrs Pritchard 😊
