Dear Parents, Carers, Staff and Friends

KEY WORKER and VULNERABLE CHILDREN PROVISION

Since 23rd March, we have provided a provision for our key worker and vulnerable children during term, half term, Easter and bank holidays. As of 21st July, the last day of term, this support for parents will be closing for the summer. Time is needed for staff to have a break, the school to have a full deep clean, essential works to be carried out and for us to be able to set up ready for September.

In order to support families with childcare, a holiday club will be run by Sportacus during the summer holidays. If you are interested in accessing this, please see the flyer attached and contact them directly. Places cannot be guaranteed due to numbers and the need for social distancing measure to be in place.

PLEASE SEE THE FLYER ATTACHED AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS NEWSLETTER

We would kindly ask that if you are able to keep your child/ren at home on Monday 20th and Tuesday 21st then that would really help us run smooth transition sessions for all of our children in Years 2 – 5.

Transition Information

For children in Years 2, 3, 4 and 5 we would like to offer an opportunity to come in to school to say goodbye to their current class teacher and (in most cases) meet their new class teacher. These sessions will take place on Monday 20th July and Tuesday 21st July.

We cannot guarantee that your child will be with particular children for this session.

Please look carefully at the following list and make sure your child attends at the correct time – this is really important as we need to maintain social distancing rules.

Please phone the school if you are not sure which time your child should come. Children will take their reports and books home after their session.

Reading books -  We will not be conducting another bookswap this term but wanted to point you towards an excellent service from Lewisham Library. You’ll need your Lewisham Library card and to sign up but you will then be able to borrow books on your phone, tablet or PC. Click here for more details: https://lewisham.overdrive.com/ Please keep all the books your child has borrowed from school and return them in September.

Have a good weekend,

Kate Porter
