Junior - Weekly Email - Friday 14th May

Dear Parents / Carers

What a wet week- I am hoping the plants and seeds we have planted will benefit! Huge thanks goes to all parents who have donated soil, compost and money towards our gardening and growing project. We have a delivery of plants coming next week and we're looking forward to planting them and watching them grow.

Next Steps after 17th May - The government guidance for the next steps of relaxing restrictions  at schools has been published. We are currently reviewing this and will be in touch before half term to let you know what will be happening at our schools. We are aware that there is a rise in Covid cases in parts of the UK and we are watching the data carefully. We will of course only amend our approach if it is felt that it is safe to do so.

 
Induction Day Tuesday 6th July -  At this point the transition day is planned to go ahead with the children from current nursery through to Year 6 taking part in the county induction day on 6th July.  This is a county wide decision, taken with support and guidance from Buckinghamshire Council and Public Health England representatives. 
 
I will complete a full risk assessment and specific timings and further details will be shared with you after the half term holiday.
 
We are so pleased that this event will probably go ahead as it will give children the chance to meet their teachers and visit their new classes/ schools- this will be so beneficial for them. 
 
New Nursery induction will take place in September.  

Accident free in CSG - Junior School - Thank you to those parking at the playing fields and considerately around the village. There are still a few people driving around quickly whilst taking and collecting children. Please drive carefully.
 
CSG Open Gardens Day 2021 - this event takes place on Sunday 6th June 2021, in Chalfont St Giles, from 11.00am until 5.00pm. Tickets cost £6 and give you access to ten beautiful Chalfont St Giles gardens, including Milton’s Cottage garden. Accompanied children under 16 are free. 
 
Tickets are available from the CSG Community Library and will also be sold on the day on the Village Green from 10.30am. There will be plants for sale. Cream Teas will be available from 1pm in the Memorial Hall, School Lane. This event is organised to raise funds for our Memorial Hall. Full details here
