Letter from Ms Sheppard

17 December 2020



Dear Parents/Carers


I know that there have been a lot of communications over the past few days but I just wanted to take this opportunity to say a final thank you for all your support over this past term.  It has been a very challenging time for everyone but I think you will agree that our children have been very resilient and seeing them all enjoying learning and interacting with their friends is wonderful.


Our Covid-secure arrangements within school are working very well and we have been especially pleased with the smooth running of the drop-off and pick-up times.  From January we have decided to make some slight changes to pick-up timings so that parents are not waiting unnecessarily.  The new pick-up times are detailed below and please note the drop-off times that are still in place:


Start times


New Collection Times

(from 4 January 2021)

8.30 – 8.40

Y6, Y4, Y3


8.40 – 8.50

Y5, Y2


8.50 – 9.00



9.00 – 9.10




Siblings can still be dropped off at the earliest time and collected at the latest time.  Please can we request that you arrive promptly at your appropriate collection time so that classes do not mix and children are not waiting outside for too long in the cold.  Some members of staff will still be available on the playground if you have a quick question and a member of Office staff will always be available on a Monday and Friday.


I wish you all a safe and Happy Christmas and New Year.  We look forward to seeing you all on Monday 4 January 2021.


Yours sincerely


Ms Sheppard

Head Teacher
