Important Message for Nursery Parents

Due to additional positive cases in the nursery, nursery will now be closed for a further 2 days. The children will need to return to school on Monday 23rd November 2020. Due to the Nursery being closed, the staff have provided a pack which contains 2 weeks of home learning. The packs will be available to pick up between 9.30-2.30 every day. Please try to collect the pack ASAP, so that your child is not missing out on their learning . These can be collected from OUTSIDE the reception area. They will be in labelled boxes (NSV) for Mrs Vyas’s class and (NZA) for Miss Aziz’s class. All packs will be labelled with the children’s names. Please take the pack which has your child’s name on it. We have provided you with a writing pencil which is inside the home learning pack. Also, please help yourself to ONE exercise book only. This is for your child…

Harvest Collection – Thank you

Thank you to everyone who donated items for our Harvest Collection. Your generosity was incredible and the amount we raised was amazing! The Action Homeless food bank were exceptionally pleased to receive our donations. They have seen a real increase in the number of families requiring support across Leicester in the last few months because of a rise in unemployment and the impact of Covid-19; over the summer, they served over 2.5 million meals. They are looking forward to using our gifts to help provide weekly food packs to those in need.  If you or anyone you know is currently struggling and could benefit from a food parcel, please email: [email protected]  

Halloween Dress-up Day

Similar to last year, many children have asked whether we will be hosting a Halloween Dress up day in school.  We understand that with COVID regulations, children will be unable to go trick or treating this year so we wanted to ensure that those children that wish to take part have the opportunity to do so in a safe manner.  As such, we invite those children that wish to take part to come dressed in Halloween clothes on Friday 30th October.  We urge parents not to buy something specially for the day and instead reuse items that they might already have from last year. We ask that children do not bring additional props to school as part of their outfit as these are often misplaced or lost.  

Drop Off and Collection

We’d like to thank you for your continued support with our drop off and collection arrangements.  By working together, we have support the safe arrival and collection of children and have made tweaks and changes where necessary. Can we bring your attention to two further points please to further support these arrangements: All children must wear seatbelts when in cars to ensure their safety Please be mindful of other parents and traffic whilst dropping off and collecting.  We have introduced the use of the Loughborough Road carpark to assist parents so please continue to be mindful of other users and exercise patience where required.  

Students and Volunteers

Please note that due to the current Coronavirus pandemic it is highly likely that we will not be able to make arrangements for any volunteers or students at this time. This is to ensure we meet all of the criteria on our risk assessments. If you have any queries, please contact [email protected]
