Junior - Weekly email - Friday 4th February

Dear Parents/Carers
 

Wellbeing Resources -  Action for Happiness have released their February calendar with lots of lovely ideas to promote happiness and wellbeing for adults. Please take a look and share the ideas with your children and family. I will be using these ideas too so I can spread the love and happiness - link is here for the Friendly February calendar


Accident-Free in CSG - Thank you to those parking at the playing fields and considerately around the village.  Please avoid driving up Parsonage Road and parking on this road. Parked cars are forcing children to walk in the road and causing chaos at the end of the day as children are leaving the school. Please avoid doing this- thank you.
 
Self Isolating - Currently anyone who tests positive will be able to leave self-isolation after 5 full days, as long as they test negative on day 5 and day 6 - details here.  If children have been self-isolating due to a positive lateral flow test, please can you confirm with the office that they have had 2 negative LFD tests 24 hours apart on days 5 and 6 before they return to school.
 
School run clubs - these will be starting up again as from Monday 7th February.
