Good Afternoon Parents & Guardians
We hope that everyone is well and have had a good week.
We had a visit from the local PCSO this week. She spoke with the Year 5 & 6 children about the correct use of messaging friends, online safety and social media and that a lot of these platforms have age restrictions.
She also spoke with a number of parents at the school gates regarding cars being parked on the pavements around school.
Please can we ask that if you are driving to school that cars are parked 'prettily' and not on the pavements.
Next week is Half Term so we hope that the weather improves and everyone has a lovely week.
We look forward to seeing the children back in school on Monday 7th June.
COVID 19 Positive Case Little Bells
Unfortunately, we have had to close Little Bells Nursery due to a positive case of COVID.

Social Media Age Restrictions
Below is an information sheet from Twinkl outlining the age restrictions for Social Media Platforms.
Little Bells now have their own dedicated email address so if you need to contact them directly, you can email them on the following email address:
If the matter is urgent, please phone the school and if unable to reach Little Bells, please speak to the School Office.
Little Bells will also be closed on the 19th July so the last day before the Summer break is Friday 16th July 2021.
School Lunch Menu
After the Half Term break, we will be on Week 1 of the School Menu.
Attached is a link to a copy of the menu
We have seen an increase in the number of accounts that have outstanding balances for School Meals.
Please can we ask that these are settled as soon as possible and lunches are paid for in advance.
School Drop Off and Collection Times
Please refer to the table below to see the Start and Finish times for all years.
|Year Group||Start Time||Finish Time|

We ask that Parents adhere to these times to ensure the safety of all children, staff and parents.
We ask that all parents remain a safe distance away from each other, do not gather in groups and wear masks when dropping and picking up their child/ren.
We have seen an increase of children arriving into school not wearing the correct PE kit on their PE day.
Please ensure that the children have the Belvidere PE T-shirt or a plain red T-shirt and appropriate bottoms depending on the weather. NO FOOTBALL SHIRTS.
Children must also wear their Belvidere jumper or cardigan and not any other form of designer top.

Have a lovely Half Term and keep safe.
