September 2020

Dear Parents

I am writing this end of year letter in a completely different fashion to previous years and what a year it has been.  In the last two terms we have had OFSTED, followed swiftly by COVID 19.  I am attaching a revised risk assessment re full return to school from September, please read it carefully as it should detail everything you need to know.  It is also important that you sign or give your agreement to the Parent Code of Conduct by Monday 27th July please.  This has been amended so all parents need to do this, even if you have signed for one previously.

Before and after school club will re-commence, again please read the risk assessment, but there will be no whole school gatherings i.e. whole school assemblies.  For Autumn 1 there will also be no extra-curricular clubs.

Home learning will no longer continue as staff are going to take a well-earned break. The email box will be manned periodically however, so please feel free to contact us.

Sadly, we have three members of staff leaving us: Mrs Susan Shepherd, who is moving on to headship; Mrs Gail Snape who is retiring and Mrs Sue Mountford who is moving on to another role.  I am sure you all join me in thanking them for their hard work and commitment to the children at Albrighton and in wishing them all the very best for the future.

As new appointments for September have not quite been finalised, I will share more with you on our return.

That leaves me to say how much we all appreciate the unrelenting support you have shown the school at this time.  Thank you so much for all of your comments and emails. We are so excited about not only seeing all of our current pupils in September but also all of the new children who are joining us.

Have a great Summer and keep safe.

 

Kind Regards

 Julie Bratt

From Monday 13th September children will attend full-time from 8:45am to 3:15pm.

Due to the current restrictions we are unable to have parents in the classroom.  Please help support us in a happy transition into school.  We will endeavour to make it as stress free as possible for your children as their safety and wellbeing are our main concern.

 

Yours sincerely

Mrs K Matthews and Miss C Stokes
