Dear parents 


I hope you enjoyed the Bank holiday weekend, although this week has been short, it has certainly been busy.


I have many notices for you this week which I will now share.


I wanted to begin by informing you that Finchampstead parish has bought our school a defibrillator and the casing for it.  It is wonderful to have the lifesaving equipment in school and it works for both adults and children.  As I said in a thank you letter to the parish, it is brilliant to have, but something I hope we never need to make use of.


I have been asked to let parents know that Finchampstead Parish Management Committee will be selling strawberries from manor farm on the veranda at the Sports Club adjacent to the Memorial Hall from next week onwards Tues- Fri 9am-12 noon.  It is in support of the tennis court refencing & refurbishment. These times will hopefully suit you well after drop off in the morning.  The strawberries are delicious and I know that the committee will be grateful of your support.


Parking has been better this week and I was pleased that a police officer joined me one morning last week.  I have asked for repeat visits both morning and afternoon and I hope this will support us in keeping our school community safe.  Please do not park on the zig zag and do not turn in the drive ways opposite school.


On Monday we should receive some updated guidance from the DfE regarding Covid risk assessments and the roadmap in relation to schools.  Whilst we are carefully planning the rest of term and looking forward to progress towards 'normal', we remain just as cautious and we thank you for doing the same.  It is amazing that we are at this stage in the pandemic and we have not closed a bubble or had a case within school, long may that continue.  I will be in touch with you once we are in a position where changes can be made within school.


I would like to wish you all a lovely weekend, Rosefinch had the most beautiful walk up to church today for some games on the grass.  The bluebells looked amazing and was a real treat for a Friday afternoon.
