Welcome Back to all our Families
It has been so wonderful to have all the children back in school after what seems like such a long time. I’m sure there have been many mixed feelings amongst families about the return to school. Are you missing home schooling yet parents?
We would like to welcome the new starters we have throughout the school. Nearly every class has new members and I know that you will all welcome our new families warmly into our community.
Reception children have been visiting Mrs Tomes and the Reception Team with their Golden Ticket invitations this week. We look forward to you having you with us for mornings next week.
I’d like to thank the staff for their tireless work over the summer holidays to ensure our school was ready and they were well-prepared for the children’s return. Mr and Mrs Hill have been very busy painting classrooms, making picnic benches and mud kitchens to name just a few jobs. Miss Prince and Mr Bourner painted Year 2 classroom – thank you!
The new arrangements for drop-off and pick–up are working well and are much safer. We will continue to keep them under review.  Please see the plan below in case you missed it!
Have a wonderful weekend.
Mrs Griffith - Headteacher

Revised Drop Off and Pick Up Plan - Email Sent 3rd September 2020

Dear Parents/Carers,
Due to safety concerns, we are changing the arrangements for drop off and pick up. These changes will take effect from this afternoon.
In the mornings, Year 1, Year 2, Year 3 and 5W are invited to drop off at the Station Road gate between 8.40 and 9am. Please use either side and enter onto the playground one-way system. You can then drop your child/children at the ‘Drop Zone’ in the playground with the adult on duty. The children will then make their way to their classrooms where their teacher will be waiting. You will then be asked to keep moving through the system to exit back through Station Road gate. Please do not linger on the pavements as this is causing congestion.
If you have siblings you are welcome to bring them all through Station Road gate between 8.40 and 9am.
For pick up, Year 1, Year 2, Year 3 and 5W will continue to have the staggered times as detailed below. Parents are invited to enter at Station Road gate onto the playground where you will be asked to queue in your class line. The teachers will bring the children onto the playground and hand them over to you in the queue order. You will then be able to take your child out of the Station Road gate. If you are collecting siblings and there is a clash of timings that makes this difficult, please let the office know. Again, please do not remain in the playground or on the pavement outside.  Please leave the area quickly.
For Reception, Year 4 and 5C there are no changes to arrangements.
We would politely ask that adults do wear face coverings at drop-off and pick-up.

Pick up time: 2.45pm

Mrs Griffith

School Reopening Plan

Just a reminder that our School plan for reopening and letters from teachers about individual classes can be found on the website here

Term Values

The values we are emphasising this term are Forgiveness and Friendship. Perhaps you can discuss these with your children at home?  

'Meet the Teacher'

The information normally shared in our September 'Meet the Teacher' meetings will be shared virtually this year. This will be available on Class Pages from next Tuesday afternoon.  

School Clubs

We have reduced our offerings of school clubs for the Autumn term as we keep movement and visitors to a minimum for the moment. Details can be seen on our website here. 

We have asked Maidenhead Magpies to offer football for Years 1 - 6 in three groups in the short term as their coaches will already be working in school in our school PE lessons.  We expect to have In2Sport Football back on site when we make the decision to open up the school to more outside clubs.   

Please click here to book Magpies football.  Magpies half term holiday camp is also open for booking on this link. 

All clubs will start w/c 14th September with the last session running w/c 7th December.  More clubs may be added after half term.  

Chicken Pox

We have a child in school who needs to avoid contact with chicken pox.  If you suspect your child may have chicken pox please let the school office know as soon as possible so that we can pass this information on to the family.  Many thanks for your help with this.  

No Nuts in School

Another quick reminder, as you may be providing packed lunches for your children at the moment, that we are a Nut Free Zone.  We have several children in school who are anaphylactic to nuts.  Please check labels for ingredients as nuts can be an unexpected ingredient.  Pick Up Bars on sale locally do contain nuts as do some chocolate spreads.
