Infant - Weekly Email - Friday 3rd December

Dear Parent/Carer,

School Performances and Events
We are really looking forward to welcoming you to the Christmas shows next week. If you are attending please ensure you follow the instructions below:
Do not attend if you have any COVID 19 symptoms, have tested positive in the previous 10 days or have been instructed to self-isolate by NHS Test and Trace.

Wear a face covering while on the school premises.
The Nursery, Reception, KS1 and Year 3 performances are indoors but the rooms will be well ventilated. Please wrap up warm.
Please do not attend without a ticket as numbers have been strictly limited. Please also remember that siblings, including toddlers and babies need their own ticket. Thank you.
At this time of year when we are all so busy it is good to take some time to remember that we also need to prioritise our wellbeing. Here are some top tips for wellbeing from Mental Health Matters
Christmas Services at the Parish Church
Please see here for more details on the Christmas services being offered at the church.
Accident-Free in CSG
Thank you to all those who park considerately away from School Lane and the surrounding area.
Please can the driver of a blue Toyota ****MFP not park outside the entrance to Rectory Gardens on School Lane and across Crossing Corner. This is dangerous for the children who are crossing and is stopping the residents of Rectory Gardens from getting out.
