I hope you are all well and ready for a great half term break. This half term has gone by very quickly and it has been great to have everyone back in school. The pupils have settled in well and are working really hard.
We are in the middle of recruiting for teachers and teaching assistants for next year and we will update everyone regarding year groups and classes next half term.
Below is letter from Dean Wallace from Derbyshire public health. Everyone is enjoying the gradual return to normality. In school, we are not changing any of our systems and the wearing of face coverings for parents at the start and end of the day is still required. Derbyshire public health have made us aware that cases of Coronavirus are rising in the Glossop area. Thank you for following our guidance and keeping our pupils, staff and families safe.
Have a great half term break and we look forward to seeing you all after half term.
It is with a mixture of sadness and excitement that I write to announce that Mrs Kennett will be retiring at the end of this term in July.
Mrs Kennett will be greatly missed and has given 24 years of her professional career to our school. Mrs Kennett has had a massive impact on the lives of many young people and their families and I am sure you will join me in thanking her for her dedication and support to our school.
This is an exciting next step for Mrs Kennett and a well-earned retirement. However, I strongly suspect Mrs Kennett won’t be retiring fully and she already has plans to support many more young people in outdoor learning and forest schools.
Mrs Kennett will have a day on the field where all classes will join her for forest schools activities in July.
Mrs Kennett, we wish you all the very best for the future.
Due to lockdown this had to be postponed. However, we are still looking at this going ahead and would ask that any 20p’s or any loose change (in or out of the smartie tube) be in the class jars by Thursday 27th May (last day). Each jar will be added up and the class raising the most will have a treat afternoon with pizza, W/C14th June.
We are going to be holding a donation day on Thursday 27th May. The idea being that each class will be allocated a specific colour and they will be asked to bring something in of that colour. It will be non-uniform and if they want the children can wear the colour allocated to their class, however, this is optional. So if their class is given red they can bring in anything red ie: red wine, ketchup, shower gel, a red football, maltesers. Anything of that colour, but we would ask that items are in date and nothing fresh.
The donations will be made up into hampers of the specific colours with maybe a couple of ‘rainbow hampers’ too.
Tickets worth £5 (£1 each) will be sent out in envelopes with each child W/C 7th June. To be returned by Friday 9th July and the draw will be made on 16th July. Further tickets will be available on request from the school office.
|Mrs Thornley, Mrs Cox and Mrs Kennett||Any colour of the rainbow|
|Mrs Cox and Mrs Mackey||Pink|
It was really hard choosing winners and all the children have got a small prize. The winners are listed below.
A massive thank you to Mrs Mackey who has worked really hard to make this successful.
Have a great Easter break
