Dear friends, 

A few changes!

It has been lovely to begin to meet many of you in my first week and get to know your children. Thank you for the warm Children’s House welcome. 


We have missed seeing your faces in school so much and have made the decision from Monday 17 January 2022 we will ask you to collect your child from their classroom.


We will continue with drop off at the gates at the beginning of each session but when you pick up you will be asked to come onsite.

Please come to your usual gate and we will show you the way.


To adhere to Covid restrictions, we are asking:

  • Only one adult comes to pick up each child;
  • Please wear a mask whilst indoors;
  • Please observe social distancing (be patient and careful on the stairs especially First Floor families);
  • For safeguarding reasons, mobile phones must not be in use;
  • Once you have collected your child and passed on any messages to staff please go back through the same gate you came in.


Bear with us whilst we get everyone used to the new routine. We hope it means you can say ”Hello” to your child’s key person more often and see their classroom and garden. 


Previously the Blog was updated daily. This will no longer be possible and the blog will be updated weekly with a variety of rich learning experiences. Please be reassured that children are still engaged in wonderfully rich and challenging learning every day. This will continue to be documented in their Learning Journeys which you and your children can take home and share regularly. On reflection I feel staff’s time is best spent with the children engaged in learning and not uploading photographs to the blog every day. 

Hopefully as you will be picking up your children from class each day, you can talk to staff about learning. 


Kind regards, 

Becky Dolamore
