Monday 2nd June
It seems strange to be writing to you regarding the procedures for the end of this academic year and classes for next year during a time of such uncertainty but it is important that you are aware of what is coming up during this half term.
Classes for next year
Staff are busy looking at classes for next year. As there has been so much disruption to the school year because of Covid-19, we are not planning to make many changes to the children in classes for next year where possible. However, if there is a concern/issue you have regarding your child please raise this with your child’s current phase leader by Friday 12th June. Classes will be fixed after this point. Teachers have already been assigned to new year groups – please don’t assume that the same teachers are staying in the same year groups.
You can do this by emailing the firstname.lastname@example.org. Please put in the subject FAO – FS/KS1/KS2 phase leader (delete as appropriate)
Chestnut, Rowan and Hawthorn Phase Leader – Mr MacFarland
1MG, 1HJ, 2LH, 2CA Phase Leader – Mrs Alba
3RK, 3TJ, 4RM, 4DS Phase Leader – Mr Khunti
5FK, 5CD Phase Leader – Mr King
We will obviously be unable to hold transition days in the usual format this year but teachers will post an introductory video for their class on the school you tube channel and send out an email to children to introduce themselves and welcome them to their class. This will be in the last 2 weeks of this half term. A letter will come home on the 29th June informing you of your child’s new class teacher.
Reports will come out to you in the final week of term. They will have assessment and attendance information but this will data from before the school shut. This is in line with government guidance that all schools have received.
Although we will be unable to hold our usual end of year celebrations for Year 6. The Year 6 team are busy working on a format for a Leavers event that children and parents will be able to take part in. Please bear with us as I am sure you will understand that logistically this is going to be complex to plan. More details will follow nearer the time.
