World Book Day
What a glorious success you all made World Book Day! Thank you all for attending both assemblies, carrying out the challenges and sending in your photos. I do hope that you al enjoyed doing it as much as I enjoyed hearing all about it. I received some photos which haven't yet made it onto the blogs yet but these will be updated tomorrow morning.
If you haven't yet looked at all the wonderful photos which have been sent in, then please visit the following links:
Return to school tomorrow
I will re-paste below the information which I sent out last week. However, if you haven't yet done so, please book lunches for the week (including home packed lunch options) and, if relevant, spaces on the bus and at breakfast club.
Our risk assessment has been revised and can be found here.
We're working hard to ensure that we have everything in place for a smooth and safe transition back to school. Please help us to avoid crowds at drop off and pick-up times by only arriving for your children's designated slot and leaving Tawton Lane promptly after. All timings will revert to those in place last term: Years 1, 3 and 6 will begin at 8:40 and be collected at 3:20. Years R, 2, 4 and 5 will begin at 8:50 and be collected at 3:30. Children will not be allowed on site before their allocated times and we will ask parents to wait well clear of the school gates if they arrive early. This is for the safety of the whole community.
Please remember that, if you have children who have different start or finish times, you should arrive at school for the later of the two times.
Hot dinners will be served from the 8th. The current menu can be viewed here. Please book all meals as soon as possible through your school gateway accounts.
Bookings for breakfast club and the school bus are also now open and can be accessed through school gateway.

Recycling of old pens
I've been asked to remind parents that Steve Granger collects old pens and takes them to be recycled, Usually, there is a collection box in the Kings' Arms, but Steve can take them directly whilst the pub is closed. If you would like to use this service, please let me know and I'll pass your details on to Steve.
