Weekly reminders for week beginning 4th Mary 2020

Good morning Clockhouse


I hope you are all well and keeping safe and the same is true for your wider families. Our hearts go out to those within our community who are currently experiencing a difficult time, please, if we can help, you know where we are, but I know I speak on behalf of everyone when I say, we are thinking of you all. Please keep going everyone, I really do hope we are closer to the end than the beginning and we can only get there if we all do as we are told to do!


We hope you enjoyed the different things that came your way during last week. It was lovely to see many of you getting involved with the Toilet Roll Challenge (the video is coming your way soon) and also all of you who are taking part in the 1000 challenge to raise money and to everyone for their fabulous pictures for Queens Hospital – I know they will be grateful. We hope you enjoyed the art lesson with Mrs Reinecke, the staff telling stories as well as our first virtual Achievement Assembly – well done to last week’s Home Learning Heroes, I wonder who it will be next week! Well done also to Year 3 for embracing a slightly different Greek Day!


As many of you already know this week the country comes together to celebrate VE Day on Friday. As a school we have taken the opportunity to celebrate this as well as give the children a chance to reflect on the History they are making by living through this time. We have planned some lovely activities which we hope you will enjoy, so please look out for these and make sure that you share what you do with us! Friday (which is VE Day) is actually a Bank Holiday and we hope that as a family you can come together for a special lunch or afternoon tea to celebrate this together – remember to dress for the occasion! Please do send us your celebration photos showing our Clockhouse family coming together!


This week, the following is still the case:

  • There will be a small number of staff in school every day on a rota basis.
  • The best way to contact teachers / school staff is messaging via Class Dojo, they will be online throughout the day this week and will get back to you as soon as they can. You can also communicate with them via Google Classroom.
  • The school phones will only be manned between 8.00am and 3.30pm. Please do not hesitant to call, even if it is only for a chat. If we cannot talk at that moment, someone will get back to you as soon as they can. Please only use option 3 and 5, as other lines will not be manned due to the reduced work force each day.
  • Should your child be eligible for Free School Meals and moving forward you decide that you need support, please alert us in good time.


Look out for another challenge where we are going to need your help – that is both the big people at home and the little people!


Please keep sharing your pictures with us, we love seeing them and it really does brighten up our day. By sharing with us via class dojo or our other platforms, we will take this as your consent for wider sharing. If you do not want photos shared please do not send them.


These are very strange and difficult times for us all. We really do miss you all and truly cannot wait see you again – let us just hope that it is sooner rather than later!


I am sure you will want to join with me in thanking those in our community who are front line and key workers and also our great staff team. We are so lucky to have such an amazing community who has pulled together during this difficult time.


Please look after yourselves and each other, we miss you all dearly!


We are still one community and are here for you all.

Our school – a family and a home for everyone!

Keep smiling and stay safe

Mrs Savidge
