News Update

Dear parents/carers,

What a busy and successful half term we have had - there has been so much exciting learning taking place across the school! I wish you all a restful and enjoyable half term break - we look forward to seeing everyone return to school, refreshed, and ready for our last half term of this academic year. Please see some useful reminders below.

Please be reminded that next week is half term and so school will not be open. We also have an INSET day on the first Monday after half term (7th June). This means that staff will be in school but children will not be in school.

These remain the same across school as we move into the last half term of the year. As and when guidance changes, we will update you accordingly.

Our 'drop-off' window remains the same (8:40am - 9:00am). Please be reminded that we expect all children to be in school by 9:00am at the latest. Recently, we have had an increase in the amount of children arriving after this time. Although we understand 'one-off' late arrivals, it is extremely disruptive to a child's learning if they arrive late at school regularly. It is also meaning that staff are having to come away from supporting the learning of pupils to collect children from the office as they are late. This puts a lot of pressure on us as a school and disrupts learning. I ask for your continued support in arriving at school on time.

Due to Covid-19 safety measures, our collection window remains the same: N/R/Y1 3.00pm – 3.10pm / Y2-Y6 3.10pm – 3.20pm.

Unfortunately, there has been an increase in the amount of parents wishing to pick their children up early. It puts a great deal of strain on staff across the school having to collect numbers of children during the last 20 minutes of the school day to be collected at the school office. Please do not collect your child early form the school office unless it is absolutely unavoidable as doing so means that staff are once again pulled from leading learning activities across the school to walk your child up to the office. Your support with this is very much appreciated.

‘Grab your jab’ and help to keep Nottingham Schools safe.
The City Council are making a fresh call for all eligible adults in Nottingham to get vaccinated against Covid-19.
They want everyone to have the protection offered by the vaccine to reduce the spread of the virus – and to help the city’s continued unlocking of Covid-19 restrictions. The more people who take up the offer of a vaccine, the greater the protection afforded to all local
communities and our schools. Currently, everyone over the age of 30 can get the vaccine – to book your appointment, visit: or call 119.

Please see their full letter attached to this post.

If your child receives a Free School Meal, you will have been sent an email today with the information you require to redeem the voucher for half term.

Thank you.

Mr Skirton
