The current situation regarding the Coronavirus is changing daily and we have today updated our risk assessments following updated advice received over the weekend.

 

Therefore, following my letter to you all on Friday, the following events and activities have been either postponed or cancelled so that we can limit the spread of infection and to ensure that we are in control of all hygiene measures:

  • Newtown Community Bookshop – closed until further notice
  • All scheduled trips – postponed until further notice
  • Parents’ Evening - postponed (please see information below regarding telephone appointments)
  • Family Collective Worship – Cancelled until further notice
  • Year 4 sleepover - on hold until further notice
  • Stay and Play – Cancelled until further notice
  • Easter Church Service and all Easter events – cancelled
  • School Disco – Postponed until summer term
  • Rock Steady Concert – Cancelled (Lessons will go ahead as normal at present)
  • Share the Miracle – On hold - if you have already donated, these Easter eggs will distributed to those as planned)
  • Yoga – Cancelled, we cannot guarantee the hygiene of the mats and equipment
  • Karate – Cancelled until further notice – Karate will be contacting all parents

 

At the moment all after school clubs will continue as planned (except for Mr. Bagley’s football and this is due to Mr. Bagley’s paternity leave; all affected families have been contacted).

 

Parents’ Evening: Although parents’ evening has been postponed, if you would like to discuss something urgent with your child’s class teacher, the school office would be happy to arrange a telephone appointment for you. Please contact the school office to arrange this.

 

Pupil Absence: Due to an increased number of pupil absences this morning, please can I draw your attention to the letter that was sent home on Friday with regard what to do if your child presents symptoms or is unwell. In the case of a pupil absence, there are websites you can access so that your child can access home learning whilst they are not in school. Please visit our website www.newtownceprimary.co.uk/home-learning-resources/

 

I will of course update you with any further news or developments as soon as I can. Thank you for your continued support.

Mrs Howlett, Headteacher
