Public Health England have produced a letter for schools to distribute to parents which explains when a person requires a coronavirus test and what the symptoms of coronavirus are. The intention of the letter is to help prevent children being taken out of school unnecessarily and answer some of the questions parents may have around testing.
We have emailed the letter to Parents and Carers and have also put it in the Letters and Information Home section.
It is with great disappointment that we announce that we are postponing the Year 7 trip to Longtown Outdoor Centre on Monday 28th September 2020.
We have taken this decision based on national and local government guidelines. As you will be aware, there has been an increase in daily cases and tighter restrictions being put into place.
I do appreciate that the students have been looking forward to this trip, however, we have booked a provisional date in January. The money that you have already paid for the trip, can be held in school ready for January. Alternatively, if you would rather the money was refunded, please contact the school office.
The new catering payment system is now up and running. Your child will also be given a payment card that they can use instead of the normal biometric thumb print. This has been brought in to support our covid-safe measures. Please ensure your child keeps this card safe as they will cost £5.00 for you to replace.
We would like to limit the handling of money to a minimum, therefore could you pre load Parentpay in advance where possible.
Could you also regularly check the balance on your child’s account as at times students can overspend. A daily limit of £5.00 has been set, but this will be reviewed as we go through the year.
If you have any questions regarding this please do not hesitate to contact us on email@example.com
