Summer Fayre

Just a reminder that the Summer Fayre is on Monday and that it is for the children only this year.

Each class have made something for the children to buy but on the day there will also be some stalls and games for the children to go out and play. They will need some spending money for these games and stalls.

Thank you.

Summer Raffle

We are Raffling a picnic bundle, tickets are £1 each. Please send the money into school in an envelope. The raffle will be drawn on Friday 16th July. All proceeds will be spent on your children. Thank you.

Face masks

Good afternoon, I have noticed many parents walking past my office this afternoon NOT wearing a face mask. Can I remind you that when you pick up your child/children and bring them to school in the morning you must wear a mask unless you are exempt (you should be able to prove this status). We are doing very well at St Anne’s to keep your children safe from covid 19, so please support us and do the same for our school community. Thank you to the parents and guardians that continue to follow the guidance. Mrs Priest-Jones

St Anne’s is OPEN!

Good afternoon Parents and Carers, I am sending this message to confirm that St Anne’s is OPEN and will stay open until the end of the summer term unless we have any cases of covid. I am glad this has been brought to my attention as I certainly do not want children missing school because parents have been given the wrong information. Please ring school if you have any concerns. Thank you. Mrs Priest-Jones.

Isolation – due to covid

If you have children in secondary school that have been sent home to isolate due to bubble closure they should NOT be bringing younger siblings to St Anne’s. You are putting other families at risk and this is not fair. Follow government guidance and keep your children at home, even if they’re not showing symptoms. Next time this is brought to my attention, I will report individual families to the authorities. Thank you.

Transition

Good afternoon, unfortunately we have been informed that transition for Year 5 pupils moving to high school will not be going ahead due to the levels of covid cases rising in some schools and in some communities. We will also not be able to invite new nursery pupils and parents in to school for the same reason. Your child’s high school should be in touch regarding alternative plans and Mrs Garnham will be in touch with nursery parents before the end of the term to discuss arrangments for September. Children will only spend one hour with their new teachers on Thursday’s “Common Transfer day”. They will not move into their new classrooms but staff will visit them in their current classes. I hope this makes sense. We certainly don’t want to have to close bubbles before the end of this term. Thank you.

Summer Fayre

Good Morning,

As I am sure you are aware, due to Covid, events like the Summer Fayre will look very different this year.

It has been decided that for this year we will hold the Summer Fayre for the children but will not be inviting parents etc. We will send more details out about this in the coming weeks.

We are, however, asking for your help. We are looking for donations of good quality toys, games, books  for the stalls. It is the perfect time for a clear out and we would be very grateful for any donations. Please could all donations be sent in by Monday 5th July so we can quarantine them for the relevant amount of time.

Many Thanks

Friends of St Anne’s.
