Thank you Sammy and Indie, we are all very proud of you and what you have done.
Dear parents, carers and pupils,
The Derbyshire local authority are asking each school to follow the DFE advice regarding the coronvirus. There is a link to the DFE website and other information on the front page of our website and in the coronavirus tab on the top right of the front page. The DFE website is updated daily at 2PM.
We will keep you all updated using the text system and the website. Please be assured that the safety of our pupils and staff is of paramount importance and we are following advice and taking all precautions.
School will remain open unless we are instructed to close by the department of health or the government issues a closure notice. There is likely to be significant disruption in the coming months and we will do everything in our power to minimise the impact on our pupils. In the event of staff shortages, we will use all of our resources to keep school running normally. If the school closes, we are looking into a number of contingency plans, which will all be based around our website and ensuring work and activities are provided.
- Please follow the advice on the website.
- Notify school if anyone who has had contact with pupils or staff in school has a confirmed case of coronvirus.
- If any pupil or family member displays any of the symptoms (a high temperature, 37.8 degrees and above, a new continuous cough), please self-isolate for the recommended 7 days. All absences related to the coronavirus will be authorised.
- I am advising that any parent with a pupil with underlying health conditions do not attend school and this will be authorised.
This is going to be a disruptive time for our community and we are fully committed to supporting our pupils, families and staff in any way we can. A strong sense of family is one of our core values, please support each other in the coming months and please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions or queries.
Your child will be bringing home a sponsorship form to try and raise some money for school (60%) and for the professional athlete Kevin Metzger (40%) to fund their training and other costs etc.
For more information on our athlete please go to https://sportsforchampions.com/meet-the-athletes-2/
If your child raises between:
£5-£14.99 they will receive a signed photo of the athlete
£15-£34.99 they will receive a signed poster of the athlete
£35+ they will receive an autographed instant photograph of themselves with the athlete (this can include siblings too!).
Any money raised to be brought into school on Thursday 12th (in one weeks time) so that we can let the athlete know what he needs to bring with him.
The day will consist of the athlete (Kevin Metzger) completing a circuit challenge with the children, an assembly and a question and answer session.
We are all very much looking forward to inspiring our children.
We are grateful for all the clothing donations we have received recently, and welcome any more clean, wearable clothes. Any dirty, stained clothes that you deem unwearable, please put these straight into our clothes recycling bank next to the main gates as we still receive funds for the school from this. Please be aware that everyone sorting through these clothes are volunteers and helpers for our school, please don’t send in any inappropriate items of clothes.
As we have so many clothes, we are splitting the categories for the next clothing giveaways as follows:
Friday 28th February
Coats, shoes, hats, gloves, uniform, under 3’s and men’s clothes.
There will be a small selection of new World Book Day outfits.
Friday 13th March
Coats, shoes, hats, gloves, uniform, children’s and ladies clothes.
A very well done to everyone who got the gold treat this half term. Getting five golds or more is a huge achievement and I am very proud of all of you.
This time, we had a very special guest, Shaun Hennessy, a professional actor who did a fantastic workshop. The pupils really enjoyed it and learned a lot about body language and facial expression.
Please notify school immediately if anyone who has had contact with anyone in school who has had a confirmed case of Coronavirus.
