18th December 2020
As we draw nearer to Christmas, I would just like to reiterate how much all the staff have appreciated your support during this pandemic. The atmosphere around the school is one of positivity and mutual respect.
Our whole school nativity performance is accessed through the link below as it is too large to attach to this email. Please don't circulate the performance on social media.

We have all watched a lovely pantomime this week. If you or your child would like to watch it again, the link is here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZkjA_RTc7Gw
This will expire at the end of January.
Each teacher's message will include a Christmas Carol sang by the children in their class.
The Government has asked that all parents and staff still need to inform the school if there are any positive cases of Coronavirus up to 6 days into the Christmas break. Please contact the school office or your class teacher if you become ill. After this time parents are advised to use Track and Trace.
The borough has asked that we remind parents that children should not be visiting their friend's house, or visa versa, during the Christmas break. Class or childcare bubbles don't apply out of school. Children can only mix with their own households in line with the local tier 3 restrictions, and those under the national Christmas bubble announced by central government.
Please do let the school know in January if any of your family have been in contact with any positive cases of Covid 19 during the self-isolation period.
We do hope that you all have a safe and enjoyable holiday and look forward to seeing you on Tuesday 5th January at the usual start time.
Warm festive wishes
Susan Calvert and the office staff
