Thank you to all the parents who have already emailed us with their key worker information and ID. Please can you do this by 12pm today, 20th March, as we will then plan for next week and email you confirmation of a place.
We are also planning to be open during what would have been our Easter holidays, in order to allow essential key workers to work, if you are required to do so. We will do this on a flexible, rota pattern for staff so that they still get their holiday entitlement, if they are happy to work in this way.
Again, thank you for cooperation at such a difficult time. What an amazing, ACE community we have here and I know that this will only strengthen us further.
In light of the huge changes we are facing, we have cancelled the parents evenings for next week. We will therefore be closing at the normal time on Wed 25th March, to further support all our working parents. So there will be no early closure on that day.
Staff will aim to send home a short written report instead, on April 22nd.
The aim of this is to share progress to date, next steps and ways that you can further help your child to make progress.
Thank you once again for all your support during a time when we have had to make some small but significant changes to the way we are running school.
We really do appreciate your cooperation and support.
Congratulations to our Cheerleading team today for coming first in the Active Schools Cheerleading competition on Wednesday. They have worked so hard starting in September to prepare a dance routine and today they demonstrated those skills and qualities including physical strength, co-ordination, flexibility, as well as building confidence, self -esteem and team working skills. Thank you to Ciara Patchett who has worked with the children to help them produce such an intricate routine!
Last week Ms Edwards went to the Primary Science Quality Mark awards evening in York to receive our award. We have received the award because we have shown that we are “developing effective, confident science leadership for whole school impact on science teaching and learning.”
We have had an excellent start to the new year, with lots of exciting work going on.
Reception started the week with a Dinosaur Planetarium. The children came out buzzing about their experience, talking about dinosaurs being extinct and meteorites. I am looking forward to seeing the work that they produce from this!
