This is the first letter this final half term of he the academic year and as always I hope you and your families are keeping well.
Please see the latest information and news below, including the parent governor vacancy, non-uniform day update and key dates for your diary.
As you may be aware, It had been hoped to 0from 21st June. However, this has now been put back until Monday 19th July. For now, the government has confirmed that most Covid restrictions in England will stay in place. This includes social distancing and the wearing of face masks.
Therefore, following this announcement, the measures we have in place at the start and end of the day will remain in place. All families will still need to socially distance; all adults will need to wear face masks (unless exempt) and the one-way system at the end of the school day will remain in place. The protective measures we have for our children within the school day will of course remain in place as a result of this latest announcement. I will update you further when the government update their advice to schools.
• Please be advised, these expectations apply to those who have had vaccinations.
Non-Uniform Day (Reading Books)
As we all know, the children love to come into school wearing their own clothes. On the last Non-Uniform Day, the final total donated by our families was £358. This will all go toward buying more books for our children. I will repeat, I know these are uncertain times, where household finances can be an added anxiety, so a huge thank you from me. Over the these three Non-Uniform days we hope to raise £1000 and the next two are:
- Friday 25th June
- Friday 16th July
As I said previously, I have had many families contact me about donating spare reading books that they have. These have been very generous offers. If there are more families willing to donate reading books, please contact the school office and we will be delighted to accept your offer.
Uniform (Hats and Clothing)
I want to remind all of our families that only Lark Hall caps should be worn to school. Children. We are seeing all manner of different hats, which on an evening and weekend would look very nice, but please be mindful of the school uniform.
Further, please write your child’s name on their items of clothing. During the summer term in particular, children take their jumpers off and it so much easier to return it to them if it has their name marked.
That’s it from me. As always, if there is anything else myself or a member of the team can do to help and support you during this time, please do not hesitate to get in touch in the usual ways. Have a great break.
