Newsletter 18th June 2021
Dear Parents and Carers
Even though we knew it was coming, it was still sad to hear the government announcement as this will affect many of the activities that we had planned for when lockdown ended. Currently we are going through and carrying out risk assessments and seeing which can still go ahead and which we need to postpone or cancel. Where it is safe, we will strive to give the children some semblance of normality for their year-end. I will send out an update early next week but some are below.
Sadly, following the government’s recent announcement, all of the local secondary schools have cancelled the transition day on Thursday 1st July. This does not mean that we will not have transition, but it does mean that it will look different. We are currently liaising with schools to see what this might look like and will let all parents of children in Year Six know as soon as we can confirm arrangements.
We are still planning to go ahead with sports’ day for the children as we can manage it in school in a covid-secure way by changing the format and equipment used. Unfortunately, we will not be able to have any parents attending which is a huge shame but at least it will be able to happen in some form.
The recent Group photographs are now ready to view and purchase at http://htmp.st/WillowBrookCombinedSch There will be a “deliver to school” option open for approx. 14 days, otherwise home delivery is available for £5 postage and packing. If you need assistance please call 01736 751555 (option 3) or click on contact Tempest on the home page.
There is some information that will come with this newsletter about a scheme that WH Smiths is running and gives us a chance to earn some additional income for the school.
We have no designated area for lost property at the moment. All lost property is returned to the year group bubble so that is the place to start. It is really helpful if clothing is named as this makes its return much more likely.
