5th November 2021

Christmas

Although we will not be running our Christmas Fair again this year, we will be holding some of the stalls/activities. One of these will be the chocolate tombola stall. We are having a non-uniform day on Friday 12th November. If children do come in non-uniform, we are asking for a donation of chocolate.

There will also be the Christmas raffle and Secret Santa shop. We will send more information about these at a later date.

Christmas dinner and parties will take place during the last couple of weeks of term. We will send more details nearer the time.

There will be a Reception Nativity but whether this is a live performance or recorded and made available to parents, will be dependent on DfE guidelines to schools around COVID-19 updates.

Anti-Bullying Week 15th-19th November

We will once again be supporting this campaign, which is co-ordinated by the Anti-Bullying Alliance each year.

This year’s theme is: One Kind Word

In school children will be taking part in activities around anti-bullying.

We will again be taking part in the ‘Odd Socks’ Day on Monday 15th November. Odd Socks Day marks the start of Anti-Bullying Week to help raise awareness of bullying and is an opportunity to encourage people to express themselves and celebrate their individuality and what makes us all unique!

Children will come into school in uniform, but can if they wish, wear odd socks.

Uniform

School shoes should be plain black.

Please can we remind you that nail varnish is not part of our uniform policy.

Long hair should be tied back for health and safety reasons and only stud earrings should be worn.

COVID-19

With the Autumn and Winter months approaching, it is important that we take steps to protect ourselves from catching and spreading COVID-19 as well as other seasonal viruses.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms in children:

Children can get coronavirus (COVID-19), but they seem to get it less often than adults and it’s usually less serious. The main symptoms of COVID-19 are:

  • A high temperature
  • A new continuous cough – this means coughing a lot, for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours
  • A loss or change to sense of smell or taste – this means they cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal

What to do if your child has symptoms:

If your child has any of the main symptoms of COVID-19, even if they’re mild: Get a PCR test (test that is sent to a lab) to check if they have COVID-19 as soon as possible using this link: Get a free PCR test to check if you have coronavirus (COVID-19) – GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)

Your child should stay at home and not have visitors (self-isolate) until you get the test result – they can only leave home to have the test.

While we appreciate some of these symptoms maybe other seasonal virus, we would ask you to be extra vigilant and book a PCR test if any of these are displayed. If we identify any new symptoms in school we will ask you to collect your child so a PCR test can be done. If you need any advice, you can call the NHS on 119 or the school office on 01274 414126.
