Summer Term update

Dear Parents and Carers,

Following the Government announcement earlier this week, I am writing to inform you that we will sadly not be able to have parents on site for events this half term. We will do our very best to capture these events on camera so you can experience them virtually.   For the children in school, we will ensure these events still go ahead as planned, and will take every precaution to ensure safety at all times.

Date Activity
Friday 18th June Enhanced transition for some Y6 pupils to TCS Exeter Road. The class teacher will notify you if this involves your child and the details

Happy holiday’s!

Please note that the change in guidelines are not a school decision but government guidelines. For more information, visit https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus. We would love nothing more than to welcome you onto the school site for our usual end of year activities. This will all help to reduce transmission.

If your child or a member of your household are showing any of the main Covid-19 symptoms, you should self-isolate and book a test. Please share these results with us as soon as possible before you send your child back to school. This is incredibly important to ensure safety for all.

I will write to you again before review day and meet the teacher to notify you as to who your child’s class teacher will be next year.

Yours sincerely,

Mrs Annabelle Thomas
Head of School
