Week Ending 2nd October 2020
Current attendance results are as follows:
Whole School Percentage has risen this week from 96.61% to 97.06%
1st place goes to Green 1 for 98.94% attendance.
2nd place goes to Red 1 for 98.40% attendance.
3rd place goes to Violet 1 for 97.92% attendance.
We are very proud of these percentages and it shows that even during a global pandemic we are seeing the importance of being at school, despite the worries and anxieties. Well done, everyone and thanks for your commitment to school life!
This week in school, we have had further closures and I would like to remind people about the letter I sent out on the 28th September. This was concerning our ‘Blended learning’ plan for when your child may have to self-isolate. This has worked well this week and the level of engagement from families has increased and is developing all the time. Yes, it is sad to be in a global pandemic, especially whilst cases in Broxtowe are rising and spiking. However, the children’s education is important to us and we want to ensure that we get this right for everyone involved. Well done to everyone so far for coping at home and please do let us know if you are struggling with access, devices or work. We can also provide paper copies of any work where needed so please do speak to us.
Can I kindly and politely ask that from Monday you socially distance in and around school and consider wearing a face covering within the school grounds. Can you also please ensure that only one adult does the school run for your child and that you use the staggered times well and don’t arrive early to school. Can you also please leave the premises as soon as you have collected your child and ensure that your child does not use the play equipment on KS1 playground. Cases are rising and we want to try and do whatever we can to keep people safe.
Please be aware that we are currently considering the staggered arrangements as we feel that the crowds continuing to gather on KS1 playground at the end of the day are not helping. We will be in touch as soon as we have a revised plan (for everyone’s safety).
The Test and Trace app is already highly effective and if you haven’t done so already, I would download it to your devices and smart phones using the following link: https://www.nhs.uk/apps-library/nhs-covid-19/
Together, we will rise to this challenge and ensure that as many of our children remain safe and in school as possible.
Take care, everyone! Keep safe and I look forward to seeing you soon as we get through these difficult times together.
Have a great weekend everyone and keep safe.
