Returning to School in September

Dear Parents,

We are really looking forward to seeing all of our children return on Wednesday 2nd September. Below is a Parent Update addressing questions and queries relating to how school will look in September.

The following 'Bubbles Overview' provides an overview of which bubble colour is with which teacher and also start and finish times with information of where to enter and exit the school.

I hope the steps outlined above reassure you that our school will do everything we can to ensure school feels as normal as possible in these difficult times, alongside reassuring you that we will do everything to keep your child safe on their return.

I hope you and your family have a wonderful summer break.

Supporting Children to Return to School

As lockdown measures are lifted across the country children will increasingly return to school. Everyone will have a different view on this. Some will be excited, others will be worried and stressed.

The following documents have been designed to support parents and carers in preparing their child to return to school:

Coronavirus Update

Dear Parents/Carers,

I hope you are continuing to keep well and that you have been able to enjoy some of the beautiful weather over the past few days.

Many of you will have watched the Prime Minister's briefing on Sunday evening and seen the news that primary schools could begin reopening from 1st June. The suggestion, at this point, is that there would be a phased approach for children returning beginning with Year 6 children at Brook House and Reception, Year 1 at Beighton Infants. A great deal of careful thought and planning obviously needs to take place before this can happen so that we can ensure the health and safety of children, staff, parents and extended families. I will continue to keep you updated as and when I have more information.

We are continuing to update our Home Learning each week on our school website and it has been great to see so many of you collecting your Home Learning Packs from school entrance. New packs are issued each Monday and are available throughout the week. Remember to remind your child to email their teachers once they have completed their work. We love to see what you have been doing!

When you collect your home learning packs please also take a free copy of The Sheffield Star newspaper which is available each week and is situated next to learning packs. In each Thursday's free edition there is a fantastic education section with lots of fun learning ideas your children can access.

It has been lovely celebrating the wonderful learning you are doing at home through such things as our weekly online sparkle assembly which is on our youtube channel. Also I have been sending lots of 'praise' postcards home and I know lots of you are receiving lovely comments from your class teachers. Well done and keep it up!

In the meantime, please keep on taking very good care of yourselves and those close to you. I hope to see you all again soon.

Best wishes,

Mark Hinchliff
