Parent Letter 28th June

28th June 2021

Dear Parents and Carers

 

COVID19

I hope this finds everyone well, as you may be aware we have had positive cases in school and we have had to follow public health team’s advice to close bubbles. Please could I remind all parents to support us to minimise the disruption in school.

  • DO NOT send you child to school if they, or any member of their household or support bubble are waiting for the result of a PCR test.
  • Please collect your child as soon as possible when a bubble is closed to ensure we do not affect other bubbles.
  • Please do not allow your children to play with other children who are self-isolating.
  • Please notify school if your child or any member of your household or support bubble goes for a PCR test or has a PCR result as soon as possible – this is especially important over the weekends.  Please notify school via covid19@upperbycdc.org.uk    

This ensures we can provide parents with as much notice as possible when we need to close bubbles.

 

School uniform for September

If you would like to order school uniform for September please complete the order on Scopay.  The office will contact parents when the uniform is in to collect. Orders are needed by 9th July to ensure we can fulfil the orders before the end of the school term.

 

School reports

Written reports will be sent home before the end of term.

 

Transition

Due to new guidance for schools we have had to change our transition activities for the children.  Your child will meet their new teacher in the last week of term and information will be sent home with details of your child’s class next year.

Guidance has also affected our Year 6 pupils, who have been unable to attend visits to their secondary schools. When they return on Monday 5th July, we intend to carry out some additional transition work with them within school. 

 

TERM DATES for NEXT SCHOOL YEAR  

Please note our Autumn term dates are different from dates published on the Cumbria County Council website.

 

Autumn term  

Monday 6th September 2021 until Friday 17th December

Half term - Monday 25th October to Friday 29th October      

I hope everyone stays well, we thank you for your support in school.

Please do not hesitate to contact school if you have any concerns.

Yours sincerely

 

J Hodgkins   

Head Teacher
