Dear Parents and Guardians,


I hope you all had an enjoyable half term; I was very relieved that we had no bubbles isolating.  The staff started the new half term with some fantastic training linked to our behaviour policy.  I would like to thank Mrs Dodds for leading the day and we now look forward to adapting the training for Learning Support Assistants and Governors.


I have had the pleasure this week of attending online Collective worship training through the Oxford Dioceses.  The training has given me a lot to reflect upon as we hopefully move forward to 'more normal times'.


Whilst transition is far from what we would hope, the Year 6 children who are going to Bohunt have had an outside meeting with Mr Hulland (Assistant Headteacher).  We have also held our PGL parent meeting which we are desperately hoping can go ahead at the end of June.


The situation locally with Covid is very worrying, with surge testing happening very nearby.  Please remain very cautious and safe as we progress through the half term.  As more school and national guidance is released over the coming weeks, I will keep in touch by email.


I wanted to finish my news update with some highlight moments.  Firstly, Key Stage One have had their first week of music with Mrs Gan and they loved it!  We had our individual and sibling and class photos today which we couldn't do last year.  Finally, we have all 200 books for Key Stage Two either in school or on their way, how wonderful for the children.  Thank you to everyone who contributed and a huge thank you to the one parent who bought the rest of the list which got us to our 200 target for the start of term.


If you have any concerns relating to Covid over the weekend, please email me directly  I wish you a lovely and safe weekend in the sunshine.
