Latest News 14 01 2022

Dear Parents and Carers,

We hope you have had a good week – it has been another busy week here at school. Please see below this week’s latest news, updates and reminders.

Latest news:

  • COVID-19 Isolation Changes - If your child tests positive, from Monday (17th January) take LFD tests on day 5 and day 6 of your child’s self-isolation period. If they receive two negative test results, they are no longer required to complete 10 full days of self-isolation. The first test must be taken no earlier than day 5 of the self-isolation period and tests must be taken 24 hours apart. Anyone who is unable to take LFD tests will need to complete the full 10 day period of self-isolation.  If both of these test results are negative and your child does not have a high temperature, they may end their self-isolation after the second negative test result and return to your school from (on) day 6.
  • Music Lessons – Children in Years 2 to Year 6 had a wonderful music demonstration today. Pupils were introduced to our new piano and drum teachers. Mr Foster (who teaches violin) also showed pupils the guitar. There will be letters coming home for those who would like to learn these instruments.

Upcoming dates:

  • Y5 Narnia Workshop – These are taking place on Monday 24th January for Ospreys and Owls and Tuesday 25th January for Hawks and Eagles. The deadline for payment is Monday 24th January. For the letter please click here.
