School Closed: Monday 19th September

As you may be aware Monday 19th September 2022 has been declared as a bank holiday, this will mean that school and wrap around care will be closed all day. School and wrap around care will be open as usual on Tuesday 20th September 2022.

As this is a time of national mourning, it is only right and respectful that we postpone this week’s Celebration Assembly on Friday 16th September, we will double up on Friday 23rd September 2022. Therefore, the children who have achieved behaviour, lunchtime award or Star of the Week will be celebrated (quite righty), but a week later. As a mark of respect, there will also be no newsletter this week.

Welcome Back!

We’re looking forward to seeing you all back at school on Tuesday 6th.
For all the important diary dates, please check our Events page and the weekly Newsletter.
Term dates for the year are available to download as a ‘fridge poster’ on our Academic Calendar page.
If you aren’t yet signed up to the class WhatsApp or would like a partner to get copies of email correspondence, please email the school office to arrange.

Regular Rapid Lateral Flow (Asymptomatic) Testing

On Sunday 28 February, the Department of Health and Social Care announced that from Monday 1 March, households with primary school, secondary school and college age children, including childcare and support bubbles, can test themselves twice every week at home.

Please be advised Primary school pupils are not being asked to complete Lateral Flow tests at this time.  

If you wish to begin the twice-weekly testing program, kits are not available from school but can be accessed:

  • via employers if they offer testing to employees
  • by collecting a home test kit from a local test collection site
  • by ordering a home test kit online (please only do this if you cannot access the test any other way to save the deliveries for those who need them)

NOTE in Warwickshire the venues that do community antigen tests on site are different to those where you can collect the tests to take home, so please check before you travel.

Who can get access to regular rapid lateral flow testing?

The following people in England will have access to regular rapid lateral flow testing made available to them as schools reopen: 

  • secondary school pupils 
  • primary and secondary school staff 
  • households, childcare and support bubbles of primary and secondary-age pupils 
  • households, childcare and support bubbles of primary and secondary staff

? World Book Day FANCY DRESS 10th March

Dress up as your favourite character in a book, poem or play. If you have it, bring the matching book too.

(postponed from March 4th)

We have moved World Book day so that all children can wear a costume of their favourite character in a book, poem or play. We encourage children to be creative and make their costume up from wardrobes at home. We would also encourage children to bring in that favourite read to match their costume. It will be wonderful to have all that excitement in our first week back – we will find a way to parade our costumes!
