Next Week: Anti-bullying Week

It is national anti-bullying week next week. This is an important yearly event that we always look forward to supporting. School Council reps from each class have already been reviewing our Bullying Policy ready to share with their classmates. Monday 16th November is Odd Socks Day – children and staff will come to school in odd socks to show their support for the event!

You can find out more about the week at:

Next Week: School Photo Day - Monday 16th November

Apart from the odd socks, make sure everyone is dressed up smart as Monday is also school photo day! As always, the youngest children will be having their photos first. Unfortunately COVID restrictions for the photographers and for school staff mean that there will be no family photos this year.

Next Week: Nursery admissions to school for September 2021

Parent of children in Mrs Walker’s Nursery Class will need to look out for the Main School Application Packs which are being sent on Monday. Reception Class places for September are NOT automatic and all parents will need to complete a City Council application form to secure a place for next school year. If you aren’t sure about what to do or need help with the form, please contact Lorraine, our Family Support Worker, on 0115 807 7755 – she is happy to help.

URGENT LEGAL REMINDER: Having a COVID Test?

If anyone in your house has a COVID test you must NOT send your child to school until you have a negative test result (or 14 days later if it’s positive). If your child gets a positive result and you have sent them to school whilst waiting for the result, you will close your child’s whole class for a fortnight. Doing that is illegal and parents face a £1000 fine for the offence.

Coronavirus – Class Closure (Year 5 Bowden)

Year 5 Bowden are currently learning at home following a positive coronavirus test in their class. Because our bubble system is so carefully managed, only children in Year 5 Bowden and an associated intervention group have been sent home as a precaution. The class have not had contact outside their bubble and there is no reason for us to be concerned that anyone else has been in contact in school. A reminder that the NHS instructions for “what to do if” are very clear and can be found at https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/self-isolation-and-treatment/when-to-self-isolate-and-what-to-do/

Thank you to the vast majority of parents who are doing their bit to keep everyone safe in school – wearing a mask - keeping 2m distance - following the one way system. This really does help to keep everyone as safe as possible and to keep as many classes open as possible too.

Attendance Winners

Classes who are Attendance Winners are getting the most amount of learning they can each week – a great commitment! We do take out any covid-related absences when we calculate this to make sure it is fair to everyone. Congratulations to the following classes who were winners for the week commencing 9th November:

Attendance Ted Mr Gritt's Class (Anning Year 2) 98.96%

Attendance Cup Miss Mullins’ Class (Brunel Year 3) 100%

Miss Moore's Class (Naoroji Year 6) 100%

Well done to these classes, remember if you are in school everyday, it could be your class next week!

National Children’s Survey

Nottingham City Educational Psychology Service conducted some research during the Covid-19 lockdown into pupil views on their education. This research has been used to inform policy and support schools with understanding pupil views in the context of the return to education.

We are now really interested to know how your child has experienced being back in school and if they have anything they want to tell us about how it feels to be in school at this time.

If you would like to add your child’s voice to the survey, please help them to complete the survey using the link below. This is now part of a nationwide project that we hope will be instrumental in understanding the needs of our pupils across the country over the coming school year.
