Welcome to BPS Weekly Newsletter -  3rd July

Good Afternoon,

We are missing you all here at school! We hope everyone is keeping well during this very difficult time. We have Keyworker pupils, Key 1 and Year 6 here now. A final group of Year 6 will join us on Monday.  School reports this year will be posted next week. There will not be as much detail as usual but hopefully will give you an insight into the progress your child made whist they were here.

 Return to School In September

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

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

 

There will be details at the end of August on how we will adapt to the changes required ie staggered starts, timetables. The information issued by the Government on Thursday 2nd July will be implemented accordingly.

Class Structure for September

To ensure that all children receive an identical curriculum we have chosen to change the class structure next year for Key Stage 1 to have parallel Year 1 and 2 classes. Key Stage 1 pupils will be informed in the reports next week, which teacher they will be having.

Year 1 Pupils - Welcomed Back on June 22nd

We are very impressed how quickly they have settled back into school and are enjoying the activities that they are completing. They have also spent time outside playing in the lovely weather. At this time, it is unlikely that we will be having any further Year 1's into school before the end of term but we are reviewing this weekly and we will provide an update should this change.

 

Year 6

We are delighted to be able to welcome back a new 'Bubble' of children on the 6th July.  We look forward to seeing them, please refer to entry and exit times set out below.

FREE SCHOOL MEALS

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 will be available over the summer holidays we will contact you when these are ready.

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.
