As we continue into the term...
Whilst the number of cases nationally and locally continues to remain steady, with some spikes taking place in local schools, it is vital that we remain vigilant against the spread of COVID. Although the relaxation of restrictions has taken place over the summer break, much of the science suggests the country will see an increase in the number of cases during the Autumn Term.
As such, we ask that you continue to follow our guidance in order to stop the spread of the virus and public health closing one or more of our classes. Please ensure you arrive on time to drop off and collect your children, please avoid congregating in groups outside the school site and most of all if your child is unwell we ask that you check their temperature or if possible complete an LFD test.
We will continue to have a staggered time table for the start and end of the school day for the different classes. This will continue to half term. We are maintaining our classes within the family bubble arrangement as last year to reduce virus transmission. This is part of our COVID risk assessment and will support our outbreak plan if required.
Pupils in class bubbles A, B, E should arrive at school for 8.45am (to 8.50am) and collect at 3.10pm (to 3.15pm). Scroll down for update on which classes are which bubbles (as published in last terms newsletter) and their start times for September.
Pupils in class bubbles C, D, F should arrive at school for 8.55 am (to 9.00am) and collect at 3.20pm (to 3.25pm). Scroll down for update on which classes are which bubbles (as published in last terms newsletter) and their start times for September.
We will review these arrangements at the end of the first month.
This will help protect our whole school community and keep our classes open until the end of term.
Thank you for your patience and continuing support at this time.
Mr Metcalfe & Mr Boyle

World Book Day 2021 - making it great wherever you are...
The Masked Reader Competition and more for World Book Day
Below are some great activities to get you 'bookish'. In case you are wondering - no costumes this year (phew!)
Tomorrow we will be joining in with the celebrations for World Book Day - a day for sharing our love of books and the extraordinary adventures that stories can take us on. Across our whole school, we will be sharing a fantastic book called 'Perfectly Norman', which encourages everyone to celebrate and love their uniqueness, rather than trying to hide it away. A range of fun activities that are linked to the story have been planned, as well as the keenly awaited 'Masked Readers' quiz! Will you guess who's behind the mask?
Teachers will be sharing Perfectly Norman and the Masked Reader quiz with their class during live lessons, but to make sure parents can enjoy sharing the fun with their children, we have put links to the story, the Masked Reader quiz and the Pick 'n' Mix afternoon activities below. You will also find a link to the World Book Day £1 Book Token which can be printed off at home (paper copies will be sent out when all children return to school on Monday). These can be exchanged in participating books shops for one of the World Book Day books.
Please make sure you share any photos that you take during the day, either using your child's Google Class stream or on Tapestry or you can Tweet them on parents’ Twitter Accounts with the hashtag #smcepslovereading
