Welcome to BPS Weekly Newsletter -  10th July

Good Afternoon,

We hope everyone is keeping well.

School reports were posted this week or sent home with those children in school and hopefully you should now be in receipt of these.  Please contact the school if you have not received a report for your child/ren.  As previously advised, they are not as much detailed as they usually are but hopefully they will provide you an insight into the progress your child has made whist they were in school.

Important - please see the information below regarding the returning to school in September.  Start and Finish times MUST be adhered to at all times to ensure the safety of all children, parents and staff.  

 

 Return to School In September

The Government have announced that all pupils are to return to school in September as normal. We will return on Wednesday 2nd September 2020.

We therefore wish to put the following measure in place 

1. Pupils are not to bring in large bags or rucksacks . Please have PE Kits in a Draw String PE Bag

2. Any books are only to be brought in a book bag

(These are both available from Deco stitch during the Summer Holidays or from school during the last week of August)

3. NO pencil cases or other personal possessions are to brought from home

Book Bags will be available from school next week between 10am-11am.  If you require one, please come to the barrier where we will be able to give you a book bag.  We will then take your name and add it onto your ParentPay account for payment.

There will be NO activity clubs after school for the first half term of the new school year.

Shropshire Council - Return to School Support Service

Shropshire Council have introduced a Support Service should you have concerns or queries with regards to your child/ren returning to school in September.  The Support Service is available from the 17th August to the 2nd September Monday to Friday 9am-5pm.  Please contact them with any concerns or queries you may have.
 
 

 

Free School Meals

For meals next week, please phone the school on 01743 365211 by 10am each morning to request a packed lunch for your child/ren.  You will be able to collect these from 11.30am at the school gate. Vouchers for over the Summer holidays have been ordered.  We have been advised that you will receive:

£30 per child around the 15th July 2020

£30 per child around the 29th July 2020

£30 per child around the 12th August 2020

This will then total the whole of the Summer holiday period.

Kingswood Refunds

 We will soon be in a position to refund the amount with the exception of the initial deposit. We have been in constant communication with Kingswood, as they are withholding the deposit, which we find unacceptable. 

We are persuing this with them and also with our insurance company.
