Staffing and Transition for 2020-21

Dear Parents,

We are now pleased to be able to confirm the allocation of teachers to year groups for the next academic year.  Due to the current circumstances, this has been much more difficult than it would usually be and we thank you for your patience and understanding.  As we fully digest all of the information and guidance related to the full re-opening of school in September, we will be able to confirm teaching assistant allocation – hopefully by the end of next week.

Year Group – Teacher
Nursery – Mrs Schofield
Reception – Mrs Jilks
Year 1 – Miss Corkerry
Year 2 – Miss Clarke
Year 3 – Miss Hayden
Year 4 – Mr Rolison
Year 5 – Miss Piercy
Year 6 – Mrs Hartwell

We are delighted to have appointed Miss Aimee Piercy into the position of a full-time class teacher, following her successful year of training with us.  We were also delighted to appoint Miss Madison Hayden as a class teacher, following the departure of Miss McDonagh.

Each teacher has written a letter to the children they will be receiving in September.   These letters are available to download below.  Please take the time to download and share this letter with your child:

Children entering Nursery in Sept 2020
Children entering Reception in Sept 2020
Children entering Year 1 in Sept 2020
Children entering Year 2 in Sept 2020
Children entering Year 3 in Sept 2020
Children entering Year 4 in Sept 2020

Children entering Year 6 in Sept 2020

In addition, for children entering Years 1-6, we will be holding transition sessions, via Zoom, next week.  The schedule for these is below and the individual meeting details will be emailed out to you early next week.  For Years 1-3, the sessions will be done in groups.  The email link that you receive will indicate the group/session your child should attend.

Year Group in Sept 2020 – Zoom day/time
Year 1 – Wednesday 8th July (Gr1, 10:45-11:30am; Gr2, 11:30-12:15pm; Gr3, 12:15-1:00pm)
Year 2 – Thursday 9th July (Gr1, 10:00-10:45am; Gr2, 10:45-11:30am; Gr3, 11:30-12:15pm)

Year 4 – Wednesday 8th July, 1-2pm
Year 5 – Thursday 9th July, 1-2pm
Year 6 – Friday 10th July, 1-2pm

Finally, at the end of next week, each teacher will be making available a small pack of activities for the children to complete during the Summer holidays.  These will be posted here on the school website.

Whilst the school will be closed to children during the Summer break, we are acutely aware of how difficult the past few months have been (and continue to be) for some families.  Should you need to make contact, myself and Mrs Quinn are still available via email ( / throughout the summer – although please do bear in mind that it may take us a little longer than usual to pick these up and reply to you.
