Junior - Weekly email - Friday 21st May

Dear Parents and Carers,

The weather does not appear to have picked up at all but it looks more promising for next week. The thought of some sunshine is keeping us all going!!

I have been busy this week looking at plans for after half term and reviewing our risk assessments. Staff are currently discussing these and I will contact you next week with our next steps. We are all keen to be taking what steps we can to get things as close to normal as we can.

In terms of events which parents can attend, as things currently stand, we are not allowed to hold these. We will know more after 21st June when we hope that this situation will change and we can go ahead with events and the celebrations for the end of the year. In the meantime we are making two versions of each plan. One for if parents can attend and one without parents in attendance due to possible restrictions.

Our sports week will be going ahead in the week commencing 28th June. We will hold our sports day on 2nd July but at this point we can't guarantee that parents will be invited to join us. We are so sorry for the lack of certainty but the situation is constantly moving and we want to make sure we keep everyone safe and the school fully open.

Half Term Break - If you are travelling overseas during the half term break, please could you inform the School Office where you are going and the date you are returning to the UK. Thank you.
Address Details - If you should move house please can you infirm the school office so we can keep your child's record up to date.
Accident Free in CSG - Thank you to those parking at the playing fields and considerately around the village.  Please avoid parking in Parsonage Road. The area around the turning circle is becoming very dangerous- your children are at risk. Let's all work together to keep them safe.
It has also been reported that some people are driving at speed around the local roads whilst taking and collecting children.  Please drive carefully and protect all members of our village community.
Year 5 Secondary Transfer details - Bucks admissions team have now confirmed that GL Assessment will be posting the Secondary Transfer Familiarisation booklet direct to Year 5 children’s homes on 8 July 2021.  
Parental Survey - The link to the parent survey is here. This survey will be open until Tuesday 8th June 2021. The survey is set up to combine several children in one form, but you may complete more than one form if you have children who have differing experiences.
Dogs on School Site - A polite reminder that dogs are not allowed onto the school site - whether they are walking or being carried. Some children do not like dogs and are made anxious by being close to them. Members of staff are not able to release children to another adult without prior agreement - either by speaking to the class teacher in the morning, by emailing the school office or by adding that adult to your pick up list.  Thank you for your consideration in this matter.. 
After School Clubs - We are currently looking at our after school clubs which will hopefully be restarting after half term. More information to follow.
