Year 5 and 6 return to school

Our Year 6 children are back to school for half days Monday to Thursday starting next week. They will have three weeks with their friends to finish off their primary schooling and prepare for their move to secondary school.

After this time, we are hoping that Year 5 will be able to join their teachers for some half days to help them prepare for the demands of Year 6. More information about this closer to the time, health and safety depending of course.

Seesaw challenges

As the government have increased the amount of children we have to provide for in school in the last two weeks, you might have felt that teachers seem less attentive on seesaw. We are in the difficult situation where 90% of children are still at home but 75% of staff have to work with children in school. Staff are doing their best to keep on top of everything – many are teaching children in class then responding to seesaw whilst the children in class do their work. Please bear with us in the last 25 days of the school year and continue to do your best. We know this is a really difficult situation.

Back to School Survey for Children across Nottingham

Nottingham City Educational Psychology Service is really interested in your child’s views in relation to their experiences of their education during the Covid-19 pandemic.

They want to know how they feel about going back to school so that they can help schools to respond in the best way to your child’s needs.

To help them do this, they are asking children in all schools across the city to answers some simple questions using the survey accessing the link below. For younger children, they may need your help to do this.

Please be assured that they do not need any identifying information for your child. Children will not have to give their name or school’s name.

Your child’s participation is greatly appreciated and we believe will help schools to know how best to support them in the months ahead.

Do you look after someone who would struggle to cope without your support?

If you this sounds like you, you may be a carer. You may not see yourself as one, but if you are supporting a relative or friend of any age who has a learning disability, mental health issues, a history of substance misuse, a serious health condition, is physically disabled, or is elderly and frail, then you are a carer. If you are caring for someone, you may be concerned about the COVID-19 outbreak, and how it might affect you and the person you care for.
