Keeping Safe & Healthy in KS2
During this time of heightened hygiene in school, it’s important to remind the children that they should not be sharing any snacks brought in from home. It’s also important to provide a healthy snack each day for the children who do not take school snack. Items such as grab bags of Lays crisps or tubes of Pringles are not the healthiest option and also encourage sharing among the children.
Masks, washing and contact tracing
Please remember to send your child to school each day with two masks. One to wear and a spare to keep in their bag. We are having a big push again on wearing masks in the classrooms and as the children move around the campus. Along with this, we also remind the children about regular handwashing. In KS2, the children also need to complete a contact questionnaire each morning to help us track where everyone has been should a situation ever arise where we might need this information.
Please remember to carefully follow our Well Child Policy. This will help protect everyone in our community.
Pridi 20 & Parking
The traffic situation on Pridi 20 has greatly improved with the new restricted access through this gate. Thank you for your support to make this work.
To help with the congestion on the main car park after school, we ask that KS2 parents do not park there, but instead, use the alternative parking at Suk 71 or at Max Valu.
Please remember that parents with children in KS2 only (Y3, Y4, Y5 & Y6) should not be coming into the main car park in the morning. Drop off for children in these year groups is in front of the main car park.
The first STARs Holiday Camp, a shining success!
Some of the students enrolled in the STARs Programme, enjoyed the first-ever holiday camp this half term.
Ms Verity explains more.
Students enjoyed being with their peers over the break to engage in favourite activities such as cooking, sensory play and music.
In addition, students travelled on school buses to local venues such as Kidzoona, Bounce and Harborland to have some well deserved social and recreation time after working hard at school this half term.
It was a fantastic experience for all involved and a wonderfully inclusive community initiative for our STARS.
