Thank you

It has been lovely to see children and parents this week. It’s been too long! The children have enjoyed being back and have adapted incredibly well to the new ‘normal’. Thank you to you parents for following instructions that have enabled staff and I to ensure your children are safe. Have a lovely weekend. We look forward to welcoming you back next week. Mrs Priest-Jones x P. s please remember to send children in with carrier bags for their lunch and not rucksacks to reduce any risk. Diolch.

Back to school

Good morning Parents and Carers, We are looking forward to seeing you next week. . Please refer to the letter from your child’s teacher to ensure you get the right day and time for your child/children’s bubbles. We don’t want it being a wasted journey. Staff will be on hand to show you through our one way systems but  check before arrival that you enter school through the correct gate so it’s easier for us. Some of your teachers might be in touch later today. Again please remind your children that school will be different but we will do all we can to ensure they have a lovely time with us. Any concerns, please give me a ring or contact your child’s class teacher. Best wishes Mrs PJ x

School re-opening

Good morning, many of you will have seen the news yesterday regarding schools in Wales opening for an extra week in the summer term. This has led to confusion for schools and to our original plans. The local authority have requested the opinions of all school staff by midday today so I hope a decision will be made later today. You will receive individual letters about reopening as soon as we have an update. Sorry for the inconvenience but this is out of our hands. Diolch.

FAO Nursery parents

Good afternoon Parents and Carers, I have just received information from the local authority that schools are not expected to provide ‘check in and catchup’ days for Nursery children before the end of the summer term. Mrs Garnham will continue to provide distance learning for parents to access at home. The school will still provide care and support for keyworkers with nursery age children. Sorry for the inconvenience. Mrs Priest-Jones

Urgent – information required

Good evening parents and carers, I have been notified by my staff that many parents have not yet responded to messages regarding the reopening of school on 29th June. You should be aware that we will not be chasing parents and any requests after tomorrow will not be accepted. There is a lot of planning involved over the next few weeks for senior management, teachers and the rest of the team at St Anne’s. We feel that you have been given sufficient information and time to consider sending your children back to school.  If we have not had a response from parents by tomorrow at 9.30am, we will presume you are not sending your children back to school until September. Thank you, Mrs Priest-Jones.
