Junior - Weekly email - Friday 3rd December

Dear Parents / Carers


Wellbeing - 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.

School Performances and Events - If you are attending the school performances and events please ensure that 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.

 
Year 3 - Tuesday 7th December - Please note that Year 3 will not now be joining the Songs of Praise Service at the Parish Church on Tuesday morning.
 
Flu immunisations reminder - please be aware that GP's are not offering the flu vaccine this year and the Bucks catch-up clinic appointments have limited availability, so if you wish your child to receive the flu vaccine this winter season please do complete a consent form by 8th December.
