Good Afternoon Parents & Guardians

We hope you have had a lovely week.

Maple Class will return on Monday 5th July - we are looking forward to seeing them back in school.

As you are aware, the cases in Shropshire Schools are increasing, therefore please can you ensure that to protect yourself and others, you are wearing a mask when dropping or collecting your child/ren.

The last day of the Summer Term will be Monday 19th July.  This day will be a Fun day of activities for the children in their classes and bubbles.

Following the Governments announcement, from September we are going to maintain the staggered start times, social distancing and bubbles.  Should the situation change, we will of course update you.



Mrs Cullen & Mrs Heath

 We are sad to announce that Mrs Cullen and Mrs Heath will be leaving us at the end of term.

We want to thank them both for all their hard work and dedication to the school and Year 4.

We wish them all the very best for the future.

Today, children in KS1 will be bringing home in their book bags a slip to let you know what class they will be in when they return to school in September.

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 weekend and keep safe.
