Start of September Update
September Update for Parents
27th August 2020
Dear Parents, Carers and Pupils,
A very warm welcome back to the new school year and I would also like to welcome our new families and children who will be joining us this year.
I hope you have all remained well over the summer break and we are very much looking forward to seeing all our pupils back as they return to school. Pupils will be starting on the 3rd of September and the majority of our new pupils will transition from the 7th September. Our school day will be from 9.00am until 3.30pm. In order to minimise the number of pupils waiting to get on their transport at the end of the school day, we will start getting some classes on transport from 3.00pm so it may well be that some buses will leave the school slightly before 3.30pm.
I also wanted to remind you to please look again at our operational plans which are on our website. Here you will find information about the things we have put in place to keep our whole school community as safe as possible. If you have not already had the chance to do so, please go through these details with your child to help prepare them as they return back to school, including hand washing procedures and the map of the school which shows which ‘bubbles’ have access to which parts of the building (bubbles are grouped as individual Key Stages). There is also some information about the recovery curriculum which we will be initially implementing as we recognise that our pupils have been away from school for some time and will need a transition period as they return. Class teams will also resume contact with you via SeeSaw. Local Authority transport should be contacting you regarding the arrangements they have made for your child’s safe transport to and from school. Please contact them directly with any questions relating to this. The school has sent a text to you if you are transporting your child yourself.
We are so thrilled to be able to welcome our wonderful pupils back from next week but it is important to remember that safety is still the priority and we will be doing all that we can to keep our school community as safe as possible by following the government guidance.
I wish you all an enjoyable bank holiday weekend and please keep safe and well.
Very best wishes,
Headteacher – Culverhill School
