Wow! What a difference a week makes. As you are aware, through the many app messages that are going out, we are experiencing many cases in school.
We are following all PHE advice and are making sure that bubbles do not mix in school and that we have the highest hygiene practices possible. We always knew that if it did get into school, it would hit us hard as we are a small school! The silver lining to this cloud is that at least it is all out of the way before Christmas 🎄.
I would like to thank all the staff at school who are going above and beyond for all the children at school. They are all pulling together and working extremely hard to make sure that we deliver our high standard of education - thank you.
Thank you to all of you for keeping us smiling at the gates and encouraging us and the help that we need at this time. It truly means a lot to us here at school.
And last but not least, thank you to all the children for trying their very best, no matter that their teacher is at school or not and trying to be happy and get as much work done as possible - you are all stars 🌟

Nativities, Key Stage Performances.
As you can imagine, this has been rather tricky for us to make sure that all the plays go ahead. They have been removed from the diary today but please do not think these are cancelled. We are trying very hard to make sure that something goes ahead for each year group.
The performance will go live on Facebook or Zoom (we will let you know). Even if the children just sing the songs from their performances as so many are away. We will continue until the end of term!
This is set for next Thursday 9th December. If you would like your child to have Christmas dinner, you just select the roast option on ParentPay. This is also our Christmas Jumper Day. Children can come dressed all Christmassy and celebrate Christmas with us.
Reports to Parents
We are hoping that all reports to parents go out at the end of next week. However, with staff out, some reports may be the following week. Please be patient with us, you will receive a report before the end of term.
We have made it to the weekend. Remember, if your child develops any symptoms, please take them for a PCR test and let me know using email@example.com. I will be checking emails over the weekend whilst our caseload remains high.
If you are in Key Stage 2, thank you to everyone who has taken their child for a PCR test, thank you for those that have spoken with me, and if you haven't done so yet, please can you complete this as soon as possible. Your support in this is vital.
Have a super weekend.
