4th Jan 2021

Good afternoon.
Please find below an update regarding our plans for this week.

At the minute we are making plans on a day to day, class by class basis given the rapidly changing situation we are facing. Plans may change over the coming days.
Later in the week we will review our procedures should further restrictions come into force next week.

We have identified children that able to attend school this week using the DE definitions of key workers and vulnerable children.
Staff have been in touch with with many parents regarding this, if you requested key worker care we can provide this.

If you feel your child meets the vulnerable criteria as issued by DE and a member of staff has not been in contact today, please private message your class teacher on Dojo.

Class bubbles will not be mixing this week, each class will remain in their own room and designated areas in the playground.

Pupils are required to wear school uniforms all week.

Packed lunches will have to be sent with all pupils attending school tomorrow.
We will review this tomorrow and provide school dinners if there is demand that makes their provision viable.

Breakfast club will go ahead this week from 8am.
School will finish at 2pm.
All pupils will enter and will exit by their designated door.

Supervised learning of resources that are available online will be completed in class.
There will not be additional teaching taking place for those children attending this week.

If you would like a hard copy of the online pack to be available, please contact your class teacher to request this.
Packs will contain a print out of the resources that are available on the home learning section of the school website via this link using the password CastleGardens

If you have any questions or queries please feel free to get in touch through the usual channels.

Take care
Mr Gray
