Full Return to School - March 2021

Dear Parents/carers

We were so pleased to hear the news this week that all children will be back to us on the 8th of March. It can’t come quickly enough. The Updated Response Plan, which will cover the next four weeks in the run up to the Easter Holidays, will follow this afternoon. The Plan will be kept under constant review, but I am hopeful that as we move into the Summer Term we will be able to get back to our fullness both within the classroom and through our Extra-curricular club offer! There is so much to look forward to.

For the first four weeks, you will see the plan looks very much like it did in December, with staggered drop-offs and pick-ups at the same times and gates that you previously came to. Timings and gates are detailed in the Response Plan, if December seems a long time ago. To support us, you must wear a mask for drop-off and pick-up (unless exempt), stand well-back whilst waiting and leave the area as promptly as you can. Members of the staff team will be at the gates in the morning to greet the children and at the end of each day they will remain with their teachers (until you arrive). By maintaining the strictest of systems at this time it will enable us to buy our freedoms in the months to come….we’ve started to dream of our family picnic, Sports Day and the Year 6 trip to Legoland!

We know that the children will come back to us with a mixture of feelings – hopefully mainly excitement, but we also know that they will have found this last Lockdown more challenging than the last. Rest assured that we are planning a warm return for the children with a strong focus on well-being and creative activities. We will also have our team on-hand to support any children who needs a little bit of additional support.

If you have concerns…
If you or your child has concerns over the return to school then please do make contact with us via the school office. If needed, we can arrange a pop-in to see that school looks just the same as when they left it.
As our time apart comes to an end, our wonderful Lock-down choir under the leadership of Mrs Kingham has produced the most wonderful video that really is a ‘Song for All Saints’. We have posted it today on See-Saw so please do take a look.

What to Bring?

  • Please bring back your Powermaths books and any other materials you have had at home during this period of time (whiteboards/pens)
  • A personal pencil case ideally containing: 4 pencils; colouring pencils; pencil sharpener with a pot; eraser; highlighters and a glue stick (all labelled) to avoid unnecessary sharing
  • School PE kit (to be left in school)
  • Reading diary, Reading book
  • Coat, Water-bottle and packed-lunch (if not ordering a packed lunch)
  • School bag/Back-packs

School Lunches
As we did in December, there will be a lunch meal offer from the school kitchens from the 8th which can be ordered on the day. Initially this will be cold picnics but will then move to some hot options and themed lunches as we head towards Easter. We are in daily contact with the kitchen team and so are able to make weekly changes to menus.

What to wear?
As close to school uniform as you can manage: white shirt/tie/or polo shirt, All Saints jumper/cardigan, grey skirt/trouser/shorts/pinafore and black shoes. We recognise that some children will have out-grown uniform/shoes so until Easter we would ask you to do what you can to get as close to school uniform as possible. Being back in uniform will really support transition back into being part of a community as it is vital for making children feel connected to something bigger than themselves.
Next week, our quarantined uniform stock will be size labeled and placed on the tables near the front porch of school, so if you need any items of clothing – there are logo’d sweatshirts, cardigans, some PE shirts and a limited stock of trousers, skirts and shirts, then please do pop along and take the things you need, there is no charge but would ask that you wear a mask and adhere to social distancing. Brendas, our uniform stockist, has also now re-opened and is offering both Click-and-Collect from their Camberley Store with next day delivery (check their website for details www.brendas.co.uk).
