School Opening – Tuesday 26th January 2021

TUESDAY 26th JANUARY – the school will reopen to all Key workers and identified children following today’s snow closure. This applies to all the children who have been attending school over the last couple of weeks.  All children will enter the site through the new drop off points.  We ask Year 5 & 6 to also enter through Bruin Street tomorrow. Nursery & Reception – Ross Walk Year 1 & 2 – Ellis Avenue Year 3 & 4 – Bruin Street Year 5 & 6 – Bruin Street Children need to come to school appropriately dressed for the weather.  Please stick to the cleared paths for your own safety.  If children have wellies, we ask that they wear these to school for when walking through the snow at play and lunchtimes. We ask that parents leave plenty of time to travel safely to and from school; avoiding cars wherever possible.

School Closure – Poor Weather Conditions

Sadly due to the snow & freezing temperatures myself & the Chair of Governors have decided that we are closing the school today to all but the children of emergency workers who will be supervised by local staff that are able to walk in.  Your child’s safety and the safety of our staff is paramount to us and we are concerned about individuals having to drive in tomorrow. Online provision will continue to be provided tomorrow and children are expected to access remote learning as usual.  For those children that would have been in school, we ask them to access online lessons if possible. If this is not possible, we ask that they focus on improving their reading and handwriting skills. At this stage, we intend to reopen the school to the wider key workers and identified children from Tuesday.  We will of course update you tomorrow though once we know…

National Lockdown

Dear Parents/Carers, You will have heard last night that the country is entering a National Lockdown which includes the closing of primary schools from midnight. Whilst Abbey Mead will need to move most pupils to online learning, we remain committed to offering in school places to the children of Key Workers and those identified as having particular needs.  You will have received a phone call yesterday from your teachers to discuss this so they will be ready and expecting to see the children of key workers and identified pupils today. The short notice from the government will likely have raised many questions for you and your families.  Staff will be contacting parents again today to discuss home learning, the collection of packs and be able to answer any questions that you might have. Once again, we are here to support you as a community and we will get through this…

School closed for emergency logistical planning day Monday 4th January 2021

Dear Parent/Carer, School closed for emergency logistical planning day Monday 4th January 2021 As you will be aware, there has been significant press coverage regarding the opening of primary and secondary schools after the Christmas holiday. As Coronavirus cases have continued to rise and much of the country has now been placed under tier 4 restrictions, the government have delayed the start of face-to-face teaching for secondary pupils. The current advice is that primary schools should continue to fully open. You may have seen that many of the teaching unions have expressed concerns about the safety of staff returning to school and have advised their members to only teach remotely from home. Whilst we gather information about which staff wish to exercise their right to teach remotely and not face-to-face, we are unable to open to children tomorrow-Monday 4th January 2021. We appreciate that this is very short notice and…

Abbey KS1 Christmas Nativity 2020

Welcome to Abbey’s 2020 Christmas production, featuring the Foundation Stage’s rendition of ‘When Santa Got Stuck Up The Chimney’, the Year Three choir singing ‘Winter Carol’ and the Year 1 and 2 production of ‘Hay Presto’. The residents of Bethlehem are worried: a census has been called and they are about to be inundated with people and animals. Where will everyone stay? Will there be enough hay for everyone? The animals have worked up enough to stock pile their hay, standing guard to ensure it doesn’t get stolen. But when a young couple arrive along with a weary donkey they begin to have a change of heart. When a baby is born and visitors flock to see him, the animals realise that sharing with those in need brings the greatest joy of all.

The Action Homeless food bank were exceptionally pleased to receive our donations.
