Last term, we arranged for a visiting local author - Jonathan Camm - to come in and work with KS2. Unfortunately, due to a need to return to the UK for family reasons, Jonathan couldn’t make it in as planned.
We have now re-scheduled Jonathan’s visit to Thursday 7 March. On this day, he will be giving workshops and presentations to KS2 and will also be selling copies of his books. Some of you already placed orders last term, with some people having paid already. We have a record of this, so there’s no need to use the following link unless you’d like to order extra books. If you would like to, order any of his books, please use this link to the Google Form. We will be collecting the money on the 4 and 5 March.
Well Child Policy
To help keep the school as clean and healthy an environment as possible, we will continue our rolling programme of Deep Cleaning and, where we have a number of cases of illness in a year group, this Deep Clean is repeated. If your child is showing symptoms such as fever or a runny nose, please don’t give them medicine to allow them to get through the school day. Keep them home until they are feeling better and if you are in doubt, please take them to the doctor. This way all the other students and their teachers stay healthy and ready for learning.
This is especially important with our KS2 residential trips coming up. If your child is off school in the days before the trip, particularly if they have been diagnosed with influenza, we may ask for a medical certificate to say that they are well enough to attend the trip. If, on the morning of the trip, a child shows signs of illness, we will send them to the nurse to assess whether they are well enough to attend.
