Welcome back to the new school year everyone!!
We all hope that you have had and are still having a fantastic Summer Holiday and enjoyed lots of time with family and friends. We are looking forward to hearing about all your adventures.
As you are aware the staff went back to school last Thursday and have been busy training and getting the school ready for the children's return. We really cannot wait to see you all and although probably a little apprehensive (understandably), we hope in the main families are excited to return and get some sense of normality back. Please do only come at your allotted time (in the morning and the evening) to make things easier for everyone. We recognise that the times do not suit everyone, but as we are sure you can understand had to make decisions for the good of everyone. We are sure once we get into the swing of things, the new routine will work.
I hope, by now, you have read and seen all the information that has been sent out about our return to help and reassure you as well as preparing the children for how school will look for the foreseeable future. I will not go over it again here, but all information can be found on School Story and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to message us. I know many of you have seen the video sent on Friday about entrances, exits and what the school look like. If you have not please follow the link below:
Please do remember that PE kit should be worn on the days that your child has PE. Up until half term and as far as is possible, this will be outside. I know teachers have already shared PE days, but again, if you have any questions please do ask.
This week we will be launching our 'Back Together' Curriculum to support the children in their return to school. Please do ask them about what they have been up to and if you or they have any questions, concerns or worries please communicate these with your class teacher via Class Dojo.
Those children in Year 4 to 6 who had permission to leave classrooms on their own last year will be allowed to leave from the back gate independently on Monday and Tuesday this week unless we are told otherwise. A new permission letter will be coming home on Monday, the new list will take effect from Wednesday.
There will also be a VERY IMPORTANT letter on Monday which is our Coronavirus addition to our Home School Agreement, please ensure that this is returned to school immediately. Look out also for a little gift to mark the children's return.
Please be aware that, moving forward, any letters sent home will be done so electronically, unless we need something returned. These will be posted on Class / School Story. Whole school letters will also be posted on the school's Facebook page.
Once again welcome back everyone, here's to another successful year at Clockhouse Primary!
We cannot wait to see our Clockhouse Family!
